I have an idea.

This has to do with laundry. Sheets in particular.  As my client would say, "I have a nit." He's British.

I was doing laundry the other night. I put the sheets in the dryer to dry. When I went get them out of the dryer the sheets and pillowcases were in a huge CLUMP.  All balled up in the fitted sheet.

AAAAHHHHHHH!!!  Does this happen to anyone else, or just me?

Stuff like this makes me cranky.  The sheets get all wrinkled. And everything that gets caught in the fitted sheet doesn't dry and is so krinkled it looks like a piece of paper you have crumpled up and thrown in the trash. Inevitably, I end up taking everything out, but the flat sheet, and drying it separately. How mad would you be if your beautiful Bella Notte linens (shown here) were in a clump in the dryer!

Here's my idea.  Instead of making the fitted sheets with elastic. Which turn into nice little pockets for everything to get caught in, use snaps.  Yes, snaps. This way, you can snap the corners together to keep the sheet on tight. But unsnap them when you want to wash them so they wash like a flat sheet. I think it's pretty ingenious. What do you think? (People could do laundry in a Snap!  Get it?  Ha Ha.)

(PS. If you like the look of the Bella Notte linens shown above, give Don a call at Pollin's, we rep their fabric line so we can custom make linens using their gorgeous, luxurious fabrics.)
