MBY 302:1-13 Laws relating to cleaning and folding clothes (Part 2 – abridged)
MBY 302:1-13 [Based heavily upon Kitzur Shulchan Aruch: 80:93, 84 “Metsudah” edition, with notes, translated and annotated by Rabbi Avrohom Davis]
93) You may not make your bed on Shabbos for use after Shabbos. Even if there is still time left in the day during which you can sleep while it is still Shabbos, nevertheless, since it is not your intention to sleep on it until after Shabbos, you are preparing something on Shabbos for weekdays, and this is forbidden. (Footnote #221: If the bed is in the living room, it is permissible, for it is embarrassing and thus is considered a Shabbos need Magen Avraham 302:6.)

84) When a press is made of two boards one on top of the other, between which clothes are pressed, if it is a household press it is permissible to open it to take out clothes needed for Shabbos and Yom Tov. But you may not press clothing in it, for you would be doing it for weekday needs. If it is a launderer’s press or that of another craftsman, it is forbidden to be opened, for since it is joined together strongly, opening it is like ‘sosair’ (demolition). Even if the press was opened before Shabbos it is forbidden to take out clothing from there on Shabbos or YomTov. This is a ‘gezeira’ (rabbinic decree) lest you open it on Shabbos.
