Right now we only have one set for the new adjustable split king bed, so the sheets get washed and are put right back on the bed the same day. I had a couple of regular king sets for the old bed, but preferred one set over the other, so they also got washed and put back on the same day.

I don't care for how they smell after a week or two in the linen closet, they don't stink exactly, but don't smell fresh anymore. I like them fresh out of the dryer. Don't suggest dryer sheets, Downey, or fabreeze, can't stand the stuff and it's not good for clothing/fabric. Ruined an entire load of hubby's dress shirts years ago from a dryer sheet. Won't have it in the house.

Fragrances are the new second hand smoke.

Is your linen closet heated in any way? If not, that's probably the problem.

No, it's just a small closet that was added to the upstairs landing when the house was added on to in the 1960's. It's really that the sheets don't smell as fresh as they do when they have just come out of the dryer.

I'd love to have a clothesline...love the smell of sheets fresh from the outside.

Clearly, your only possible solution is to have the bed and the dryer in the same room.

Hm. Never had a problem with them.
An aside: as a kid, I did a TV commercial for Bounce dryer sheets when they were first introduced nationally.

I read that a couple of tennis balls or a ball of aluminium foil in the dryer will do what 'dryer sheets' are alleged to do.
