Luxury Linens do not need a lot of extra attention or care than regular bed linens. But you have made an investment in them, so consider caring for them properly. 

  • Taking a few extra steps can extend the life of your bedding a few years.
    • These steps will help them retain their super-soft feel and hand. 

In the washing cycle: 

  • Use cold or warm water.
  • Wash them in a gentle cycle.
  • Do not overload the wash machine:
    • Only put one set of sheets in the washer.
      • This results in cleaner sheets.
      • An over loaded wash machine can cause additional tension on the fabric during the wash & spin cycles.
  • Use a mild detergent – such as LeBlanc Linen wash, Ivory or Dreft, LeBlanc linen wash is sold on our site, here.
    • Detergents such as Tide or Cheer, and many other detergents, contain “BRIGHTENERS”.
      • Brighteners are typically bleach derivatives.

How to wash your luxury bed linens & sheets

Never pour detergent directly on the bed linens:

  • Start your wash, add your detergent then and allow the washer fill at least ½ way before you add your bed sheets or duvet cover.
  • Sometimes linens develop a musty odor or can discolor. This is due in part to them not getting as clean as they should. Consider only washing one set of sheets in the load. As well, add a ½ cup of baking soda every month or so to the wash cycle.
    • This will help keep the linens whiter and smelling fresh.
  • Do not use excessive amounts of detergent as it may not rinse out and it will coat the fabric making them feel rough. As well, soap can absorb debris (body oil & dander) and become discolored.
    • If you think you may have used too much detergent, run them through the was cycle using only 1/2 cup of white vinegar (no detergent). Then wash them again with detergent. 

Caring for luxury bed sheets

 Should you need to spot any stains on your linens, dilute a small amount of detergent in a cup with some water and pre-spot accordingly. 

  • Do not use chlorine bleach on your linens, bleach will degrade and damage the cotton fiber. 

In the dryer: 

  • Use a low to medium heat setting.
  • Do not overload the dryer. One set of sheets per dryer load.
  • Take your sheets out of the dryer when they are slightly damp to the touch. Don’t over dry them or leave them sit in the dryer, this will create more wrinkles and the excess heat can damage them.
  • Hand press them as you fold them up, or put them right on the bed.

When drying your luxury linens, use a low temprature
