I definitely don’t think I’d ever say that I enjoy doing laundry. First, I have to sort through the pockets of my husband and kids’ clothes since there’s always money, receipts, candy, or electronics in there. Then, it’s time to separate the wash into darks and colors, whites, and delicates. After washing and drying, it’s the dreaded process of folding. Does anyone else feel like a large percentage of their life is spent doing laundry?!

I especially like to procrastinate when it’s time to wash everyone’s bedding. Aside from the washing and drying part, making beds is a chore and a half. And what I imagine will look like a five-star hotel quality bed when I’m done usually ends up looking like a massive pile of wrinkled bedding. But thankfully, there’s an unbelievably simple way to make your bed sheets look 100% wrinkle-free.

No, I am certainly not suggesting that you iron all of your sheets. Seriously, who has time for that?! All you have to do is remove your sheets from the dryer when they are still slightly damp. And when I say slightly, I mean slightly! We’re not suggesting you make your bed with wet sheets. But making your bed with slightly damp sheets will ensure that they dry completely wrinkle-free.

After putting on the fitted and flat sheets, let them dry for about 15 minutes. Once they’re completely dry (and free from wrinkles!), you can finish making your bed with the pillows, comforter, etc. Now that you know this refreshingly simple tip, your beds can look like the perfect ones in luxury hotel rooms!
