Wrinkled (and other laundry pet peeves)
Guest blogger Terra turned to blogging at The Emerson Family as a quicker, easier way to chronicle her days of motherhood and she hopes it will be something her two young daughters will refer to for guidance and remembrance. Her candid posts are humorous, often interactive, light, and entertainingly appropriate for all to read and enjoy. She has always loved to write and aspires to write children’s books.
Sorry Ladies–I am not here to talk about an amazing product I found to stop the formation of the hideous ones around my face….
Do you remember this I love Laundry? Well then here goes:
I am here to talk about the ridiculous ones in my daughter’s sheets. The sheets on our bed are fine and wrinkle-free but they only make them in fancy, deep, boring old adult colors.
I have bought from Pottery Barn Kids, Land of Nod, Target, Wamsutta, Target, Linens and Things and probably more. I cannot seem to win.
Remove from dryer promptly – Yeah I can do that. I can even set the timer for 5 minutes at a time and keep checking the sheets to see if they are dry yet so I can be extra prompt. But whatever I do, I still get wrinkles. And not just any wrinkles – the kind that makes you wish you had a can of spray starch from 50’s (do they still sell that and how would it feel to sleep on starched pillow cases?)
All I have to say is all sheets should be WRINKLE-FREE straight from the dryer whether you take them out promptly or a week later when you remember they are there.
On this last trip to the dryer I actually took the time to iron the pillow cases (Who does that?). They were so wrinkled I knew I wouldn’t want to lay my head on them.
So…If you know a brand of plain, solid girly-colored sheets that you love that doesn’t break the bank, and comes out wrinkle-free every time please share. Please!
