BEDDING BASICS: HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR LINENS

BEDDING BASICS: HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR LINENS

MALOUF LINENS

With the look of distinction and the feel of luxury, our linens combine superior materials and innovative technologies to bring you sheets that are as comfortable as they are beautiful.

 

LINEN CARE INSTRUCTIONS

When you do find the perfect set of sheets, you want to make sure they stay in premium condition. From washing to drying to storage, here are a few tips on how to care for your Malouf linens.

Machine Washing

  • Pre-wash your linens before first use. 
  • Separate linens from other items in the wash, especially those containing polyester which tends to create pilling. Also, items with heavy zippers which can abrade and damage the fabric. 
  • Do not overload the washing machine. Overloading can cause fibers to break down from excessive abrasion and agitation. 
  • Wash in warm water using a non-chlorine bleach detergent on a gentle cycle with a cold-water rinse. 

Detergent

  • Use a mild liquid detergent, preferably non-alkaline, without added bleach or whiteners.
  • Do not pour detergent directly on linens. Instead, add it to the water as the wash tub fills or dilute with water, then add linens. 
  • Unless linens are very soiled, only use half the recommended amount of detergent.

Bleaching

  • Do not use chlorine bleach as it can weaken fibers and cause them to yellow prematurely. 
  • If the fabrics need bleaching, use an oxygen-based bleach.

Drying

  • Line drying recommended.
  • Shake out damp linens before placing in the dryer and tumble dry on low heat until slightly damp. 
  • Never use a high heat setting or over dry; this will weaken the fibers, cause shrinkage and shorten the life of your linens. 
  • Remove from dryer promptly while slightly damp to minimize wrinkles. 
  • Smooth and fold or press with an iron if desired.

Chemicals

  • Some hair and skin products such as acne lotions or toothpastes that contain oxidizing agents may cause discoloration and pilling of linens.

Storage

  • Store bed linens in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. 
  • Linens stored long-term should be wrapped in white cotton or acid-free paper. 
  • Avoid storing linens in plastic bags or boxes, which can cause permanent yellowing.
