Pre-Care Tip: Always wash new sheets before using.
Fresh out of their package, our sheets may appear crisp, clean, and neatly folded.
But new bedding can sometimes feel scratchy if not washed before it’s used for the first time.
As fine fabrics are generally not pre-washed, this first wash is important for removing stray fibres,
softening the sheet, preserving the beauty and prolonging its life.
“Psst! Be sure to fully unfold and machine wash using a cold or warm water cycleto prevent shrinkage.”
Washing Tip #1: It’s always best to wash bedding in its own load, separate from other laundry.
This gives the sheets more room to circulate in the water, which means they’ll be washed more thoroughly.
Washing sheets alone also prevents damage caused by zippers and other fasteners,
and reduces the amount of piling that can happen over time.
“Always wash natural fibres and white on their own and do not overload the machine.”
Washing Tip #2: Avoid using high temperatures and use a gentle wash and spin cycle.
Depending on label instructions, choose a cold (30ºC) or warm (40 ºC) water cycle.
You’ll want to avoid both the heavy-duty cycle and extra hot water,
as they will only damage and break down the fibres.
“When in doubt, follow the care instructions on the label before laundering.”
Washing Tip #3: Use a gentle detergent and skip the bleach to prevent discolouration.
Continued use of detergents containing whiteners, bleach, and optical brightenersor alkalis
can change the colour or weaken cotton fibres over time.
Also, you’ll want to avoid using a fabric softener as it can leave a residue on your sheets
that will cause them to lose their luxurious feel and sheen faster.
“Weavve sheets soften naturally with usage, water and washing. With regular use, you will experience a softness unlike any.”
