Many Hinchers came to the rescue of one woman on Facebook group Hinch Army Cleaning Tips, who was desperate to find a solution to completing the task quicker.

"HELP!! Not sure if this has been asked but for people that actually iron their bedding (I know a lot don't) does anyone have any tips to do it as quick and efficiently as possible please?" she begged.

The most popular answer was to iron your sheets on your bed after you had made it up with freshly washed sheets.

"Do it when it’s on the bed," said one, as another backed her, "Defo when it’s already on the bed."

"I don't iron full stop but everyone I know who does iron has said to iron the bedding ON the bed on a lower heat," added another.

"I personally have bedding that I don’t need to iron but I’ve seen most people say it’s easier to iron when it’s actually on the bed. I’ve also seen people using hand held garment steamers just to give it a quick once over," shared one.

If ironing the sheets straight on the bed sounds a little worrying – and maybe you're accident prone – then others suggest picking up a crease release spray or watering down fabric conditioner and spraying that while cranking up the heating.

Another advised: "Do it when they still are a bit wet. Ironing will finish drying them and no effort at all."

Others said that folding the covers several times reduces the amount of surface area you have to iron when using an ironing board.

"I fold sheets and duvet covers in half (long ways, underside first) makes them fit the ironing board easier. Then unfold the other way to iron, then fold in half, then in half again- until they are smaller than A4 . Seems to work for me and I have SuperKing bedding," added one.

"I saw a hack on This Morning a few weeks back and it’s definitely easier. You fold it in half and then half again the other way so it’s like a square shape. Iron the one side on the hottest setting with steam. Then you keep folding in half, ironing just the one side until it’s folded completely. Then you finish with ironing both sides. It really does work."
