Ironing Bed Sheet – The Cheating Way

Just the other day, I was changing the bed sheet for my bed, and then I noticed how wrinkled the clean bed sheet was.

Now, I’m someone who doesn’t normally iron my bed sheet. To me, it’s like a “What for? When you sleep in it, it gets wrinkled anyway… And no one sees it but you.” But the bed sheet I was changing was so wrinkled that even a slop like me couldn’t take it.

The thing though, was that I didn’t want to waste time setting up the ironing board. The kids were napping and they could wake up anytime. And then a light bulb lit up in my head.

I’m thankful the kids were taking a nap because it would have been dangerous otherwise. Phoebie would have wanted to do what I was doing and an almost-four-year-old preschooler is definitely too young to handle the iron.

So if there’s not much time to iron bed sheets, this will do.
