Slip sliding away

My fitted sheet (bottom sheet) has a tendency to gradually get pulled off one side of the bed. This is because one side is closer to the wall, so all my getting in/out of bed and sleeping is on the other side. Is there a way I can stop this from happening, or at least slow it down? [more inside]

Best way to clean and brighten up white sheets with a pattern?

I have some sheets I love (they are white with little dinosaurs on them), but they get dingy really fast and look dirty even when I've just washed them (they're pretty cheap but they make me happy). Seriously, even when they were new they looked kind of dingy after sleeping on them for two nights. What's the best way to get them as clean and white as possible without fading the dinosaurs?

Fun print/pattern sheets for grownups (babies get all the good stuff)

I want queen cotton sheets with fun patterns to go under my boring grownup comforter. White or pale backgrounds, small repetitive prints. Where can I find them? I've been able to find isolated instances, but I want options! I currently have animal options in mind (e.g little elephants, whales, owls), or perhaps nice multi-color stripes. I might sacrifice my favorite niece or nephew for amazing octopuses or seahorses. Not kidding, I really am jealous of the babies and their magic crib sheets. Some examples of what I've already found are after the cut. [more inside]

How do I get blood out of sheets that have been washed?

I want to print letterhead!

Here's the issue—every single print shop I ask can only do runs of like 500 sheets for personal letterhead. I want only 50 sheets with envelopes, and I don't want to pay a freaking arm and leg for nice letterhead. How can I do this? I don't want something that's merely laser printed onto cheap paper. I'd like something that's nice, professional, and exudes quality. I've seen these at Crane, but they're still quite expensive. Any ideas mefites?

fitted sheet for thinner mattress??

Does anyone know where I can buy fitted sheets that will fit my older 10-inch mattress? Everything they make now is for really thick mattresses, and the new fitted sheets just slip right off my thinner mattress. I'd rather not buy a new mattress just yet, and I'd prefer ones with a full elastic.

Help Me Stop Ruining My Sheets

Somehow, my partner and I have a superhuman ability to ruin sheets. The seams of the pillowcases split open. The sheets themselves develop gaping holes where our feet hit them. On several occasions, they've gone into the washing machine apparently fine, and come out torn to pieces. Can someone please give me very specific advice about how to make this not happen? Fabrics, thread counts, brands, tips on washing sheets, anything. [more inside]

Krak des Blanketiers

My housemate and I, and our across-the-hall neighbours, will soon be throwing a combined blanket fort party. If anyone has done something similar, do you have any tips for the logistics of actually constructing said fortress? We're thinking twine strung across rooms, secured at the wall by those little adhesive hook things, creating a frame for draping our linen - but there are worries about the strength of those little adhesive hook things. For reference, our apartments are 1920s Art Deco things with very prominent architraves (I think that's the word - skirting boards coming down from the ceiling, is what I mean) which we are thinking of using as our anchor points.

How do you make new bed sheets soft?

I received a gift of a 500 thread count sheet set. I've always been under the impression that the higher the thread count, the softer and more durable the sheets are. These sheets, however, are not soft. They are noisy, wrinkle easily, and don't feel very pleasant. Since I don't have the receipt to return them, what can I do to make them feel better? I've already washed them twice and used fabric softener sheets in the drier but with no success.
