Some bed sheets are just average. Others offer a sumptuously soft sleep experience that inspires you to linger in bed every morning and makes you want to retire early at night. Unfortunately, improper care can cause your favorite sheets to age before their time. Want to avoid the rips, tears, and pills that can result in a less cozy night’s sleep? Check out these tips from the Pure Parima team.
How to Make Your Bedding Last
No one wants to spend time and money sheet shopping only to have their new bedding fall apart in the wash a few months later. The good news is following a few tips can go a long way toward preserving your sheets. Here are some suggestions for keeping your bedding beautiful for longer:
Wash Sheets Weekly
Over time, dust and oil can accumulate on sheets and affect their quality. Despite this fact, a large percentage of people don’t know that laundering bedding regularly is crucial to maintaining its quality and comfort. If you want to protect your sheets for the long haul, aim to wash them once a week. It’s also wise to pretreat any stains that may occur by rubbing in a little extra detergent.
Avoid Fabric Softener
Fabric softener might help keep your clothes feeling great. However, it can also damage the breathability of your bedding. If you want to preserve your sheets, avoid adding fabric softener to the washing machine and stick to a gentle liquid detergent.
Don’t Wash Your Sheets With Clothes
Think it’s okay to toss a pair of jeans in with your bedding? You might want to think again, as the buttons and zippers on jeans and other clothing can abrade the delicate material. For best results, wash clothing and bedding separately.
Of course, you don’t want to put sheets on the bed while they’re still wet. However, overdrying your bedding can cause the material and elastic to break down. Instead, aim to remove your sheets from the machine just before they’re fully dry.
Store Sheets Properly
If you’ve been tossing your sheets in a cupboard rather than storing them properly, there’s a good chance your bedding has suffered the effects. Experts recommend stowing sheets and duvet covers in a cool, dry part of the home and keeping them in a fabric pouch like the one that comes with your Pure Parima purchase.
Let Your Bedding Air Out
Want to keep your bedding dry and bacteria-free? We recommend leaving your bed unmade for a few hours each day so it can air out.
Choose Egyptian Cotton
Investing in better bedding can save you both time and money. If you want your sheets to look new longer, consider certified Egyptian cotton over other options on the market. Featuring extra-long staple fibers, this cotton variety is less likely to break when spun into yarn. As a result, it holds up well, resisting rips, pills, and tears for years to come.
