    how long will it take to IRON it all...OY...I do large washings like this, then just fold and set aside..I then take like colors, dampen them and put into a large ziploc(one of the super jumbo size) and place in the fridge over night...the threads will swell when wet and release the wrinkles, so I can press much easier...learned this from ironing the old military uniforms that were cotton...learned it from my mom who did my dads uniforms for 23 years....

    Thanks for the tip...not sure my refrig is big enough.
    have washed 4 loads...about 4 or 6 more to go.
    Hope to count the yards as I fold...it at least seems like 300...we will see
