If you want your bed sheets to last, they need a little extra attention. Here are a few tips to keep your bed sheets beautiful—for years!

  1. Wash sheets and pillowcases once a week in cold or warm water with a mild detergent or a specialized linen powder.
  2. Dissolve detergent in water before you put your sheets in the washing machine.
  3. Avoid bleach; it can deteriorate soft cottons.
  4. Dry bed sheets on the permanent press setting. Remove them when they are still slightly damp to prevent wrinkling.
  5. Remember to spring clean your linen closet just like your clothes closet. Throw out bedding that’s worn or grayed.
