Getting the best bed linens and sheets is a very good idea, especially if you want to sleep great and without any problems. But you also need to think about long term use and what results you can expect. You want to have wrinkle-free sheets and bed linens, so knowing how to tackle all these things is incredibly important and well worth the effort.Washing frequency
This depends on your own appreciation. It’s a good idea to wash your bedding once every 2 weeks or at maximum once per month. It’s also a good idea to use suitable detergent to avoid spotting and discoloration on colored fabrics. Do not overload your washing machine, as that can hamper the durability of your bed linens and sheets. Wash in lukewarm water if possible, if you use heated water, the pores of those fibers will open up and cause the fabric to harden.
Leave the bed linens and sheets to air dry for longer durability especially for the sheet that needs special care like Tencel and Modal. Air drying might take some time to complete properly, but it really works and that’s the approach that really matters for you at the end of the day. Make sure that if you are one that will need to sun all sheets as you like that sun-dry feeling, try to avoid the direct sun if possible.
Follow the care label instruction. Avoid very fast washing speeds and tumble drying. Do not leave the sheet in the washing machine, take them out to air dry or sun it once you have spin dry it.Storage
Ensure your sheets are completely dry before folding and storing, otherwise you might find mold and mildew forming in a week or two. Allow plenty of ventilation for the sheets and avoid packing together too tightly during storage. Air circulation is important to maintain freshness and prevent foul smell.Conclusion
