Educated Shopper: Buying Bed Linens
What’s the difference between a thread count and a weave? Does either really matter? We asked Sara Jonas of Three Sheets: A Linen Shop for tips to make outfitting your bed a breeze.
Any fabric can wrinkle, and no sheet is perfect, but if you don't want to waste your time ironing, the rules for care are simple: Wash your sheets in cool water by themselves and dry them on the lowest setting. Drying sheets on a warm setting can damage the integrity of the fabric. I always pull my sheets out when they are almost done drying (just a touch of dampness) and put them right onto the bed. Follow these steps, and ironing won't be necessary.
