Your Luxury Linens have been expertly woven using the finest cotton, and with proper care they will last a lifetime. This simple guide will address everyday care and provide helpful hints to ensure the longevity of your Luxury Linens. Just follow these tips on how to wash bed linen and enjoy a brilliant night’s sleep on your freshly washed pillows. Night, night!
You can wash you linens at home in your own washing machine. All our products are made of 100% cotton and therefore we recommend you to wash at 40°C or 60°C. Wash similar items together – same color and fabric. Don’t wash with clothing – zippers, hooks, etc. that can cause abrasion.
Wash at least once every other week. Although, it is sometimes easy to forget to wash your sheets, think of it this way: Some people spend more time in bed than they do in their clothing. We wash clothes regularly, so bed sheets shouldn't be any different.
Wash your jeans some other time. Avoid laundering fine linens with other items, especially those containing polyester, and items made of heavy material, rivets, buttons, zippers, etc., (for example, denim jeans) as these can damage fibers and fabric.
No to detergent please. The use of a fabric softener (liquid or dryer sheets) is not really recommended for any fine linens, as it coats and weakens natural fibers. Your luxury linens will soften naturally with frequent use and additional washings. But if you really need - use a mild liquid detergent without added bleach or fabric softeners.
Make sure you have enough bed sets. We recommend using three sets of bed linens in rotation: one on the bed, one in the wash, one in the linen closet. This will allow each set a rest from use and a rest from wash. Similarly, we recommend that you wash matching linens (e.g. sheets and pillowcases) together, as each piece should be cared for similarly regardless of whether or not it is soiled (or even, used) to help maintain color consistency and brightness.
Linen loves fresh air. Hang sheets to dry on a clothesline outside, if possible. Sunshine is a natural disinfectant and helps brighten whites. If you can, do this every couple months. If weather or time doesn't permit, tumble dry your sheets with a dryer sheet.
Ironing helps. We know it’s really boring but always iron bed linen, because ironing helps kill the last of the germs and dust mites that might remain after the wash. Ironing also helps you to easily store bed linen. And at least there is Netflix to entertain you while ironing your duvet covers.
