All you need is a spray bottle and a little water.

Few people like to iron their bed, so we all try to take it easy when the bed doesn't look very neat, no matter how you straighten the blanket. However, there is a way to make it as flat as a hotel bed without an iron.

OBOZ.UA tells you about this method. All you need is a spray bottle and a little water. This method can not only freshen up a bed where someone has slept, but also smooth out freshly laundered linen after you have laid it.

So, start by laying the sheet flat on the mattress. No matter how much you try to smooth it out with your hands, there will still be creases in the fabric. Don't worry about it. Just take a spray bottle and fill it with clean water. Use this bottle to spray the sheet. It should be only slightly moistened, but not wet. Next, use the same method on the blanket. Once again, carefully smooth the bed with your hands, trying to pull the fabric lightly.

In an hour, when the moisture evaporates, the bedding will become much smoother and look almost as if it has just been ironed. The secret is that moisture makes the fabric more pliable. And it will be much easier to smooth it without the influence of temperature.

Some life hackers also advise adding a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil to the water if you want to scent your bed. In this case, be sure to first apply the oil to a pinch of table salt and only then add it to the water, then stir thoroughly. This will allow the fragrance to dissolve well and it will not leave greasy stains.

This simple life hack will help you save a lot of money on ironing electricity. However, if someone in the house is sick, it is better to iron the bed at high temperature, as ironing also helps to disinfect things.
