How to care for your new TENCEL™ sheetsPublished on January 30, 2023
If you recently purchased TENCEL™ sheets, congratulations! You've made a wise choice - TENCEL™ is an environmentally friendly fabric that is also extremely soft and comfortable. However, in order to get the most out of your new bedding, it's important to follow a few simple care instructions. With just a little bit of effort, you can ensure that your TENCEL™ sheets remain in optimal condition for years to come. Read on for our top tips on how to care for your new sheets.
Wash your new TENCEL™ sheets in cool water with a mild detergent before using them for the first time
While it may be tempting to dive into your new TENCEL™ sheets immediately, it is recommended to take an extra step before settling in. Washing them before use ensures they’re rid of any debris resulting from the production process, while also bringing out a softer feel and reducing shrinkage. When washing them for the first time, make sure to stick to cool water and a mild detergent. Doing so will ensure that these special sheets last as long as possible and provide you with the ultimate comfort experience night after night.
Use a fitted sheet and tuck it in well to avoid wrinkles
Who doesn't hate wrinkled bed sheets after we put in the effort of making a perfect bed? A fitted sheet is an easy-to-use and convenient solution for this common problem. With its elastic edges, it fits right around your mattress to give even tension, avoiding that terrible bunched-up look. However, for best results, you have to make sure to tuck it in well - too loose and you'll have wrinkles, too tight and it may be uncomfortable. That extra time spent will prevent frustration when it comes time to make the bed again!
Don't use fabric softener, bleach or dryer sheets when washing your TENCEL™ sheets
When caring for your TENCEL™ sheets, it's important to avoid using fabric softener, bleach or dryer sheets. Not only can these products leave a chemical residue on the fiber, but they can also cause excessive build-up that can reduce absorbency; which is not ideal when you're trying to keep your bed linens free of moisture! To keep your TENCEL™ sheets in optimal condition, use mild detergent and wash with cold or lukewarm (not hot) water. After washing is complete, air dry them or machine dry your sheets on a low-temperature setting. Remove them promptly to prevent additional wrinkling. With these simple care tips in mind, you'll have luxurious and comfortable TENCEL™ sheets that you'll enjoy for years to come.
Hang your TENCEL™ sheets to dry, or tumble dry on low heat if you must
For most people, TENCEL™ sheets are one of the most luxurious items you can sleep on. To maintain their soft, silky texture and durability, they require a little bit of extra care. To preserve your TENCEL™ sheet's quality, it is best to hang them out to dry instead of tumble drying them. This simple trick will help increase their longevity; plus, the sun naturally disinfects fabrics and helps keep your sheets smelling fresh! If you must use the dryer, make sure to only use a low heat setting to avoid damaging the delicate fibers of these luxurious sheets. With proper care, your TENCEL™ sheets will provide countless nights of luxuriously comfortable sleep.
Iron your TENCEL™ sheets on low heat if necessary
If you want your TENCEL™ sheets to look in perfect condition and stay soft over time, then it's important to know that ironing on low heat is the best way to do it. You don't want too high a heat setting or you risk damaging the delicate fibers of your TENCEL™ sheets. In fact, if you're feeling extra cautious, you can even use an old-fashioned pressing cloth between your TENCEL™ sheets and the hot iron to avoid scorching or burning them. Plus, although extra care should be taken with any type of fabric for such tasks as pressing and steaming, remember that TENCEL™ sheets can make these chores much easier since they are naturally wrinkle-resistant. So keep these tips in mind when it comes time to revive those lovely folds and creases in your TENCEL™ sheets– make sure you keep the temperature low!
Now, you can finally enjoy the silky smoothness and maximum comfort of your new TENCEL™ sheets!
