For those that would rather read, here you go;
There is nothing like the feel of 100% cotton next to your skin, which is why it is the most popular fabric used in bed linens. Unfortunately, 100% cotton bed linens can wrinkle.
Luxury linens are a wonderful thing (Italian Bed Linens are even better) however, they can wrinkle.
You have made an investment in your bedding so you will want it to look great.
Ironing is the best way to get wrinkles out, not only do the bed linens look great but the ironing also makes the fabric feel better as the hot iron lays the nap of the fabric down, so, that it feels even nicer against your skin. However, not everyone has the time to iron or the inclination.
Having them professionally laundered is something to consider. You want laundered not dry-clean them, as the harsh chemicals used in dry-cleaning can harm the cotton fabric.
However, for those that do not want to do either of these, this quick tip works great when you make the bed each week or mid week when you want to touch it up a little.
Get yourself a spray bottle of water. Water is a wrinkle release. You may want to consider getting fragranced water as well, there are many to choose from and they come in several fragrances as well. They make the bed smell great.
Regardless, if you use fragrance water or plain tap water, the result is the same.
Put your fitted sheet on the bed, then give it a light spritz of water or a fragrence linen water. Now put your flat sheet on the bed and tuck in the foot and sides.The trick to this tip is putting a little tension on the sheet (the fitted sheet will already have enough tension in it), simply grab one of the top corners and pull it slightly taunt. Then give it a spritz of water.
Go to the other side of the bed and repeat the process. Then put you duvet or coverlet on the bed.
Now grab one of your pillowcases (with the pillow inside of it) by the cuff, suspend it with one hand (from the cuff). Then give it a light spritz on both sides, repeat the process with your other pillows or shams.
You can also do the same thing with your duvet cover.
