How To Wash Sheets For Lasting Comfort

We all know that cosy feeling of slipping into fresh, clean sheets at the end of a long day, but did you know that washing your sheets properly not only ensures a good night's sleep but also prolongs the life of your bedding?

In partnership with Naturalmat, we've created a step-by-step guide that walks you through everything you need to know about washing your sheets to keep them spotless and comfortable.

How to wash sheets:

  1. Sorting your sheets 🛌
    Before you dive into the washing process, it's recommended to sort your sheets by colour and fabric type to prevent colours from bleeding and fabrics from wearing unevenly. Separate whites, lights and darks to avoid any mishaps during the washing cycle.

  2. Pre-treating stains 🧼
    If you notice any stains on your sheets, it's better to pre-treat them before tossing them in the wash. Apply a small amount of stain remover or detergent directly to the stained area and gently rub it in using a bamboo cloth. Let it sit for a few minutes to penetrate the fabric before laundering as usual.

  3. Choosing the right detergent 🧴
    Selecting the right detergent is key to ensuring your sheets come out like new. Opt for a mild detergent that is suitable for your sheets' fabric and colour. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals, as they can damage the fibres and reduce the lifespan of your bedding.

  4. Setting the washing machine 🧺
    When it comes to washing your sheets, it's essential to use the appropriate settings on your washing machine. Wash your sheets in warm water to effectively remove dirt, sweat and oils, while preserving the integrity of the fabric. Use a gentle cycle to prevent excessive agitation, especially for delicate fabrics like linen or silk.

  5. Drying your sheets ☁️
    After washing, it's time to dry your sheets properly. If possible, hang your sheets outside to air dry in the sunlight, which helps eliminate bacteria and gives them a fresh scent. If using a dryer, tumble dry on a low heat setting to prevent shrinking and avoid over-drying, which can cause wrinkles and damage to the fabric.

  6. Folding and storage 📦
    Once your sheets are dry, it's important to fold them neatly to prevent wrinkles and creases. Store your sheets in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to maintain their freshness. Consider rotating your sheets regularly to ensure even wear and tear.

You're now equipped with all the tips and tricks on how to wash sheets! By following these simple steps, you can keep your bedding fresh and clean for many nights to come. Give your sheets the TLC they deserve, and enjoy the blissful comfort of a well-made bed every night.
