If you use a fitted sheet which unfits your bed, you will feel uncomfortable since it needs some real strength as well as ingenuity to put it in the corner of your mattress. Here, if you want to keep your sheet from shrinking, you should dry it properly.
- Place sheet loosely in a dryer with tennis or drying balls and a dryer sheet. Although sheet can be dried with a top sheet and pillowcases, you can try drying it lonely for best care. Do not use smaller items in drying cycle, for they not only can get caught or trapped in the fitted sheet but also can stretch parts of the sheet from being bound to tightly inside.
- Either the delicate or permanent press setting, you had better set the dryer on a low heat and gentler setting. Considering the amount of heat generated by individual dryer, we had better set the timer on the dryer for a 20 to 30 minute cycle.
- Check the sheet at the end of the cycle. Open the dryer for another 5 to 10 minutes if the sheet feels wet. Remove the sheet if it feels a little damp, like sprayed with a fine mist.
- Place the sheet on the shower curtain rod or place it on the backs of adjacent chairs. Make sure sheet will not touch the floor. Let it air dry.
