Caring for Luxury Sheets with Different Fabrics
Certain bed sheet sets are made from fabrics that may have special laundering needs, so it is important to be aware of the attention your luxury sheets may need. When a fabric has recommended care instructions, this means that you will want to ensure they are followed to keep your sheets and fine bedding looking and feeling their best.
How to Wash Silk and Satin Sheets
Choose a detergent for delicate fabrics to wash silk and satin sheets. A gentle setting in cold water works best. Take care not to use any harsh chemicals that can damage the delicate fabric such as bleach, or fabric softener. Silk and satin sheets should not be put in the dryer, as heat may cause damage to them. Use a clothesline to dry the sheets or put in the dryer on a no heat setting.
How to Wash Cotton Sheets
Luckily, cotton sheets are very easy to care for. Simply toss them in the washing machine with your favorite detergent on a warm water setting for the best results. Line dry or tumble dry on low or medium heat and promptly remove from the dryer for less wrinkles. It’s really that simple to care for your luxury cotton sheets.
How to Wash Linen Sheets
Although linen sheets are somewhat similar to cotton sheets, due to the weaker fibers of linen, special care is needed for cleaning. Use a gentle, natural detergent in cold water to wash luxury linen bed sheets properly. Low heat to gently tumble dry.
How to Wash Bamboo Sheets
Always wash bamboo sheets in cold water on the gentle cycle. Wash bamboo sheets separately to avoid things like zippers and hooks that can damage sheets. Select a mild detergent and stay away from bleach! Line drying is best for bamboo sheets, as it helps to preserve the fine fibers, color, and elasticity of your bedding. If using a dryer, select the low heat option and remove promptly when dry.
