    Hello. Does anyone hang their sheets on the line and then bring them in an iron them. Just wanted to know. I have been doing this for years and sure can't wait to put them back on the bed. Is anyone else as crazy as I am? Just doing what my Mom used to do.

    :oops: I never iron sheets.

    I love line-dried sheets, but don't have a clothesline. My mom used one when I was growing up. I'm afraid I often have wrinkly sheets! I DO iron my clothes and I'll iron the bedskirt. For sheets, I just let the wrinkles "fall out."

    My grandma starched and iron every sheet. ugh!!!!!

    I line dry mine, but I don't press them. I put them right on the bed.

    No do not iron sheets. To much work. The only thing I do like to iron is a almost finished quilt.

    I love line dried sheets but never iron. I figure they get wrinkled once I sleep on them anyway. :)

    not able to any more, but there is nothing like the smell of a sheet that has been genly blown dry in the wind. Has to be a wendy day so you don't have to iron it.

    That's what I do in the summertime. In the winter everything freezes solid and doesn't dry, so I resort to the dryer then. And I love a freshly ironed sheet, although sometimes I don't bother. I always iron the pillowcases, though. And yes, just doing what my mom used to do.......and still does for that matter. Cheers!
