How often to wash your sheets and other bedding care questions answered
Your sheets will keep getting better after every wash and should be changed every week or so, alternating between sets to preserve quality.
Wash on a cool or warm cycle, and line-dry naturally to preserve fibers, colors and elasticity. If you’re using a dryer, choose a low heat and a low tumble cycle.
If you’re looking for the ultimate ‘clean laundry’ scent, The Laundress Signature Detergent is our pick for your regular wash.
Ideally, sheet sets should be completely replaced every 2 years (or 1 year for pillowcases) to continue enjoying the ultimate sleep experience.
It’s also important to store your sheets correctly – storing them in plastic boxes can cause yellowing. When storing, allow your sheets to breathe to keep them at their best.
If your sheets need an instant refresh, spritz them with The Laundress Fabric Fresh spray for a quick burst of freshness.
Softer sheets aren’t just ridiculously comfortable to sleep on – they’re also easier to iron and less likely to have static. Plus, using a softener can decrease drying time so you can enjoy clean-sheet heaven even more quickly.
Use a softener like The Laundress Fabric Conditioner for every other wash to keep your sheets soft and fresh.
If your sheets need a brightening boost, try pre-soaking them in oxygen bleach or adding bleach to your regular detergent.
With no chlorine or toxins, The Laundress All-Purpose Bleach Alternative is a great alternative to the hard stuff.
