Complying with the Product Care Label
It is important to read the label and follow the washing instructions as every fabric/product type has its own set of laundry care specifications.
How to best wash our Cotton sheets
1) Avoid washing your sheets with other items. The friction caused between washing items together may cause abrasion and pilling. You may also discolor your sheets if its washed with items of a different colour.
2) Avoid washing in hot/high water temperatures as Cotton, a natural fabric, is prone to fibre shrinkage when subjected to extremes of temperature.
3) Use a mild liquid detergent intended for delicate items. Wait for the detergent to dilute before putting the sheets into the washing machine. Do not put detergent directly on fabrics as it can cause discoloration.
4) Avoid tumble drying as the degree of movement during the drying process can damage fabrics made of natural fibers such as cotton, if too much moisture is removed. The occasional over drying is usually not an issue. However, if it occurs repeatedly, the fibers will be weakened and it can eventually cause deterioration of the cotton fibers.
5) Air dry in indirect sunlight, somewhere that air can circulate. Our sheets should also be air dried to retain the elasticity around our Fitted Bedsheets.
Is there any way to prevent my Cotton sheets from pilling?
Pilling is impossible to completely avoid, but can be minimized.
One of the commonly known way is to wash your sheets in a short, gentle wash cycle and use mild liquid detergent. Do remember not to put detergent directly onto fabrics. Please take note that even the agitation of the washing machine or the tumbling of the dryer can cause micro-breakage, so never overfill your washing machine or dryer to avoid additional friction during the washing cycle.
You can either set the dryer to a low heat cycle or preferably to hang your sheets to dry to help minimise wear and tear caused from a dryer’s tumbling action.
Remove the sheets from the dryer once it has stopped. Rather than letting it stay in a hot dryer, allow the fibers to cool at room temperature. This will reduce pilling considerably.
Treat stains as soon as possible, before it sets deeper into the fabric’s fibers. As with any stains, the faster you take care of it, the higher the success of removing it.
Handling dyed/colored sheets & duvet covers
Wash them inside out to protect the color.
Washing them in cold water keeps the fibers closed, trapping the dye inside to prevent color run.
Avoid using brighteners and other bleaching agents as they may weaken and/or discolor fibers.
When not in use, it is recommended that you fold and store your bed linens in a cool, dry place with good air circulation. However, do avoid tightly packing your sheets. You can make use of our Comffe drawstring bag to organise your bed linens. It’s material allows for proper ventilation of the bed linens while being stored. It also helps prevent the sheets from collecting dust while allowing the bedding to continue smelling fresh.
