Finding the best trick can be difficult, but once you know them, it makes things that much easier.
Another trick you could use to make the process even quicker after folding is, to put all your focus into the top quarter of your bedsheets and iron there. By doing this you are dealing with the outer creases and can later fluff your sheets when you put them on the bed. It makes for a quick and easy solution.
