Luxury home linens are always wise purchases because they can improve your quality of sleep, reduce stress, and boost your overall mood. Of course, they are also easy on the eyes. While luxury bed linens are not exactly budget-friendly, they are definitely worth the money—and just like other investments, they have to be well taken care of
Wash Luxury Home Linens
Cleaning home linens is not as simple as throwing them in the wash. Be sure to read the care instructions that came with them. They may seem meticulous, but they can help you clean and maintain your luxurious home linens properly so that they stay soft, durable, and great-looking even after many years. Instructions will vary depending on the material, but here are some general rules to keep in mind brought to you by Kamash:
Luxury home linens are often made with natural materials such as Egyptian cotton, which requires a much softer cleaning process. Machine wash your linen in warm (not hot) water and use the gentlest cycle. If necessary, use oxygen-based, non-chlorine bleach, and then rinse with cold water.
Never pour detergent directly onto the linen. Instead, dilute it in water. Never use fabric softeners, as luxury home linens and covers will soften naturally over time with frequent wash and use.
Do not overload the machine. One large (queen or king size) sheet plus small pillowcases are ideal. Cramming more than one bed sheet or duvet cover into the machine can have an abrasive effect and ruin the durability and quality of the linen.
Tumble dry in the lowest heat setting. If possible, line dry in soft, outdoor sunlight since it provides natural bleach. Carefully shake and smooth out damp linens before putting them inside the dryer. Do not wring out wet fabrics, as this causes wrinkles and destroys the fibres. Never use dryer sheets.
If the sheets of covers are embroidered, wash them separately from unembroidered sheets. Add salt to the water to help maintain the colour of the embroidery thread.
