Whatever type of bedding you have, whether it’s luxury modern bedding, pillow protectors or luxury cushions, you will need to make sure you look after them all properly to ensure they have a long life.
It goes without saying that bedding needs washing regularly and one of the greatest benefits of cotton bedding is that it is a durable material that can be washed many times, still maintaining its quality.
We have detailed a few things you need to know and some tips to follow when looking after your bedding. Have a look.
You can wash either by hand or in the machine at a 40-degree temperature. Remember not to overload your washing machine as a large load can mean your laundry detergent is not as effective.
Note: white bedding sets can be washed on any temperature, some experts recommend washing on a higher temperature to reduce allergens.
When it comes to drying your bed linen, you can either hang out on the line for that fresh aroma or if weather does not permit, you can just as easily pop in the tumble dryer at a low temperature.
If you want to create a crisp and straight finish to your bed sheets then it is also possible to iron them. While they are still a little damp, remove them from the dryer or the washing line, this makes it easier to run your iron over. Alternatively, if ironing your king size duvet seems like a daunting task, you can hang your sheets over a door or rail to help them stay smooth and straight before you put them on your bed.
Whether it’s designer bedding or not, all bed linen should be stored in a warm and dry place. This ensures that all your sheets and duvets, including the guest bedroom’s single bed linen that isn’t used very often, is aired properly, free from risk of mildew and mold and ready for use when you need it.
Looking After Your Luxury Throws And Cushions
Bedding collections not only comprise of sheets, pillow cases and duvet covers but also decorative cushions and luxury cushions. It is advisable to wash these on a gentle, delicate cycle with cold water. It is often better to dry on the line, rather than tumble dry.
Looking After Pillow Protectors
Finally, it can be easy to overlook washing pillow protectors when you are doing your regular laundry. However, it is recommended that you wash protector covers once per month.
