Why Do 100% Cotton Sheets Crease?

Cotton sheets are going to wrinkle when laundered. That is a trade-off between using soft 100% cotton sheets and the less soft, but more durable, poly/cotton blends that do wrinkle less.

We’ve come to the conclusion that while 100% cotton sheets may be very wrinkled when they come out of the dryer, by the time a person gets in the bed, wrinkles will be much less noticeable. The stretching of the sheets and the weight of the top bedding seems to minimize the wrinkles. Also, your older sheets will wrinkle less because the cotton fibers become softer over time.

Below are points that will reduce wrinkling in cotton sheets, but most are also counterproductive.

1. Using fabric softener in the wash or dryer sheets will help reduce wrinkling.

2. Smaller washing and drying loads will result in less wrinkles by not bunching the sheets up…great if your only job is to wash sheets.

3. Using low heat settings helps to reduce wrinkling in sheets by not allowing the wrinkles to set in.

4. Remove the sheets from the dryer as soon as possible once dry.

5. If you realize that a load was left in the dryer all day or night, simply throw a damp rag into the dryer and reheat. The humidity will lessen the wrinkles.
