Fitted sheets can be unwieldy and awkward to iron, considering their rounded corners and the elastic that holds them onto your bed. But having a well-ironed king-size sheet can make your bed look elegant and neatly kept. You just need to take a few more steps when ironing.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Add water to your iron to make it ready to steam.

  2. 2

    Choose one corner of your sheet and put it over the front, rounded edge of your ironing board.

  3. 3

    Press out your corner.

  4. 4

    Work lengthwise down the side of the sheet until you hit the next corner, pressing your way from the middle of the sheet to the edge.

  5. 5

    Work around the rest of the king-size sheet, pressing your way from the middle of the sheet to the edge.

  6. 6

    Pull the remaining corners over the rounded edge of the ironing board and press them out.

Tips and warnings

  • Consistently work around the edge of the elastic, but avoid ironing the elastic for too long. It could melt and ruin your sheet.
  • If wrinkles get in your way or refuse to be ironed out, spray them with a bit of water and then press your iron over them.
