Mattress Covers and Protectors
Mattress Toppers and Protectors: Wash bi-monthly to keep your mattress cover in the best condition. A mattress protector can significantly extend the lifespan of your mattress and is often the best option for safeguarding against harmful substances.
Box Spring Covers and Featherbeds: Less frequent washing is required – seasonal cleaning is usually sufficient.
Blankets and Warmth Layers
Comforters and Cozies: Seasonal laundering is recommended. For alternative comforters, ensure they are handled correctly if using a dry cleaner.
Throw Blankets: Based on usage, regular washing will keep them fresh. Store extra blankets in a bedding bag to keep them clean and ready for use in your guest room.
Decorative and Additional Layers
Duvet Covers and Bedspreads: Monthly laundering helps maintain their appearance and is often the best bet for longevity.
Bed Skirts: These can be washed every three to six months, or as needed.
Special Care for Special Sheets
Silk Sheets: Require a delicate touch. High heat can damage silk, so opt for hand washing or a gentle cycle in cool water. Avoid dryer sheets and fabric softeners with silk, and always dry in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
For all your bedding, regular care ensures longevity and maintains quality. Proper care of your bedding contributes to a cleaner sleep environment and a good night's sleep.
Consider using personal care products free of harmful substances to keep your bed linens in the best condition. When buying new bedding, reading and following the care instructions is your best bet for keeping your sheets in pristine condition.
