Get your head out of the gutter folks….this random rant really is about wrinkled sheets, and I mean the kind that come out of the dryer! What’s up with that?
For my shower I received some really good sheets. You know the kind…high thread count…Egyptian cotton…soft…but no matter what sheets I use they always come out of the dryer wrinkled. And that wrinkled mess just gets worse while being stored. Oprah brags that her sheets are always ironed, but for the rest of us who do not have a full time staff of people to iron our sheets, we are left climbing into bed at night to less than flat sheets.
I thought that it was just how it is…that sheets get wrinkly. That is until I took a pair of old sheets from my Grandma. Sheets that have been around for years. Although they are brown and white (let’s hear it for the 60’s!), they are the softest and most unwrinkled sheets I’ve ever seen. What is it about those sheets? I doubt she paid much for them, and they have lasted all these years!
I just can’t figure out what it is about them that makes them so perfect. The material isn’t anything fancy. Nothing like the ridiculously expensive “luxurious” Egyptian cotton they sell us today. I think it’s all a crock of bull!
As I write this I am left to wonder if I am the only one with wrinkled sheets. What are your thoughts? Do you iron your sheets? Or do you immediately take yours out of the dryer and fold nice and flat? I know I certainly don’t do either….Where can I get me some more of Grandma’s sheets???
On a side note…look at how nicely folded the sheets are in the picture??? Maybe I need to learn to fold better? lol
