If you want to keep your bedding comfortable, you should wash your bed lines regularly.
Wash sheets, pillowcase and blankets
- Wash bed sheets and pillowcase once a week in hot water with regular laundry detergent. Dry them on high heat to kill germs.
- Wash lightweight blankets and duvet covers every other week.
- For the freshly laundered sheets, you can store them with the matching pillowcases in your linen closet, a bureau or another location out of the direct glare of the sun.
Wash bed pillows two or four times a year with hot water, and dry them on low heat.
Never wash and dry too many pillows at one time.
- Wash mattress pads once a month.
- Wash mattress pads on children’s beds after there’s a bed-wetting or illness.
- Wash all guests’ bedding before guest arrival.
- Take time to clean the mattress during the process of washing mattress pad.
- Vacuum clean mattress with upholstery attachment, and wipe stains by using a cloth dampened with cold water and several drops of upholstery shampoo.
Wash bulkier items
Wash bulkier items such as comforters, duvets and heavy blankets once a year. However, for blankets made of wool, we had better take it to the dry cleaner. During the warmer months, please take care of these items.
Laundering schedule will be upset by sickness.
Wash soiled bedding as needed and clean pillowcase every day. Wash all of bedding once the illness has passed, thus we can relax and recuperate in a clean bed. It is recommended to keep two matching sets of pillowcases and sheets for each bed. Thus, when flu bug strikes, we can change it timely.
Store guest bedding in the guest room or in a separate guest bedding bin, thus we can keep a clean bedding before guests arrive.
