Sheets on BB Question

Hi everyone! I have purchased twin flat sheets in navy blue for my bulletin boards. I am wondering - do I wash them first or leave them as is and just iron them? Looking for any advice! I am excited to use sheets.

Thanks in advance for any tips you can give. :-)

In my district we would be required to have them fireproofed.

As to your question, I don't think there is a right or wrong way. I wouldn't want creases in them, though.

they come ALREADY fireproofed. So check it out. They look great. I had never used sheets. But have had fabric up for 5 years. Black polyester looks great and doesn't need ironing. Also sailcloth or cotton staples up flat. But I have had thrift store bundles of misc. that match my theme and I just work with them. When in doubt 'staple' pillow cases out of them to match your BB.

I don't wash them - just staple them on the top, iron or steam them while they're on the wall, and then finish stapling the rest.

If needed, you ca buy polyester sheets which are already fireproof (that's why many kid's pjs are polyester).

I used plastic tablecloths this year and they were super creased when I unwrapped them. I didn't have a way to fix it so I just put it up. After you start adding anchor charts and pocket charts you can't even tell. So I wouldn't even bother ironing because you'll probably be the only one who can tell the difference.
