Bed linens that are 100% Cotton can wrinkle, but there are measures to take to minimize wrinkles in your sheets. Here are some helpful hints to follow before washing:  

  • Do not roll your linens and sheets up into a ball when removing them from your bed.
  • During the wash cycle, bed sheets can also become twisted, sheets that are already bunched up will not get as clean as those sheets in a free state.
  • The fibers in sheets that are knotted are more prone to strain during the washing and drying process. 

Properly washing your bed sheets

Now that you are ready to wash your luxury linens, it is important to follow these steps to make sure you minimize wrinkles: 

  • Insert just one set of sheets in the washing machine at a time.
  • Avoid using harsh detergents such as Tide and Cheer.Use a mild detergent such as Dreft, Ivory or Le Blanc linen wash. 
    • Many popular detergents have what manufacturers label as brighteners, which are typically bleach derivatives.
    • Refrain from using bleach, as it can damage cotton fibers and prematurely fade colored linens.
    • And in the event that your bedding has developed a musty order, consider adding a ½ cup of baking soda to your next wash cycle. The baking soda will make your sheets cleaner, fresher and brighter.

We sell Le Blanc linen wash here. Le Blanc is an excellent detergent, specifically formulated for cotton products.  

Caustic detergents can ruin your sheets 

Make sure to wash your bed sheets on a gentle wash cycle with warm or cold water. Because your bed sheets will get twisted during the wash cycle, untangle them before putting them in the dryer. Here are some more professional tips to follow:  

  • Use a low to medium heat setting during the dry cycle and only dry one set of sheets at a time.

Use a low or medium heat setting when drying your bed sheets

  • High heat can damage cotton fibers, so make sure you don’t over dry your bed linens.
  • Remove your linens as soon as the drying cycle is finished.
  • Remove sheets from the dryer when they are still slightly damp.
  • Leaving sheets in the dryer will expose them to unnecessary heat and cause more wrinkles.
  • Hand press your sheets or put them right back on the bed to avoid wrinkling, as this will eliminate 90% of any new wrinkles.

These few additional steps will do more than just mitigate issues with wrinkles, but they will also add more life to your luxury linens.
