The Trick Hotels Use to Smooth Out Wrinkled Bed Sheets

Even if they started out as a crinkled mess.

After I spent a day learning how to clean like a hotel housekeeper, one thing was clear: It's all about the presentation. And nothing ruins that faster than a big fat wrinkle across the middle of a bed. It looks messy, distracting, and borderline unclean — which is why Linda Ajdari, the Director of Housekeeping at New York City's The Marlton Hotel, uses a nifty trick to flatten out even the deepest of creases.

No, you don't need an iron or steamer to smooth crinkled linens. The secret is a spray bottle full of plain old tap water — seriously.

First, spritz the liquid evenly across your almost-made bed (the corners should still be sticking out).

Then, shake the top layer until you can see the creases start to settle.

Finally, tug the comforter tight, then use the 'hospital corner fold' to pull everything into place. And that's it! When you're done, your bed should look smooth and ready for a cosy night of sleep.
