How To Wash Bed Sheets

 These helpful tips will help to preserve your bed sheets for years to come:

  • Always pre-wash new bed sheets before using. As sheeting fabric is generally not pre-washed, this first wash is important for setting the threads, preserving the fabric’s beauty, and prolonging its life. Be sure to fully unfold the bedding, set the machine to include a cold pre-soak, and use minimal liquid detergent.

  • It is our recommendation that you never use fabric softener with any sheets, as it coats and weakens natural fibers. Your bed shees will soften naturally with frequent use and additional washings.

  • We do not recommend chlorine bleach to be used when washing bed sheets, as it also weaken natural fibers and may cause them to yellow. If fabrics need bleaching, use an oxygen-based bleach.

  Fine Linen Wash

  • We recommend using a mild detergent likw Heritage Park Laundry Essentials. Do not pour detergent directly onto the fabric; rather, add it to the water as the wash tub fills, or dilute detergent with water and then add linens. Unless linens are very soiled, you need only use half the recommended amount of detergent.

  • Pre-treat any stains prior to washing.

  • Most bed sheets can be washed on a gentle cycle in warm water, with a cold-water rinse.

  • Separate bed sheets into light and dark colors. We recommend  using Heritage Park Laundry Essentials Micro-Mesh Wash Bags to help with keeping fabrics separate in during the wash cycle

           What Are The Best Laundry Bags
  • Avoid laundering sheets with towels or other items, especially those containing polyester, and items made of heavy material, rivets, buttons, zippers, etc., as these can damage fibers and fabric.

  • Wash matching bedding (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.

  • Do not overload the washing machine, as this can cause unnecessary abrasion to the fabric.
