It’s no secret that TENCEL™ lyocell sheets are pretty incredible – they’re silky soft, ultra breathable, super gentle on the skin and extremely sustainably made. However, you might have gotten your sheets and are now scratching your head – now how the heck do I wash my TENCEL™ sheets? Don’t worry, we will guide you through ever step.
First of all, unlike many other types of bedding that are made with toxic solvents and chemicals, there is no need to wash your Eucalypso sheets before use – unless that is your preference, of course. We mill and manufacture our sheets with no toxins or damaging chemicals, and only use the cleanest, highest quality materials.
We recommend you wash your sheets every 2-3 weeks. Since Eucalypso sheets are hypoallergenic, they don’t trap or breed bacteria, which means they stay clear for longer and require less frequent washes.
- Be sure to always wash your TENCEL™ sheets in cold water and on gentle cycle.
- Use a mild (preferably biodegradable) detergent to avoid damaging or wearing away the fabric.
- Wash separate from other laundry to avoid getting hooked on to zippers or latches, which can cause pilling.
- Avoid bleach, because it will wear away at the sheets. Fabric softener is not necessary since our sheets are already super soft!
When possible, let your TENCEL™ sheets dry naturally in order to help preserve the fibers and color. However, if you don’t have the option of naturally line drying your sheets, you can use a dryer – be sure to choose the low heat and low tumble option.
To decrease chances of wrinkles, immediately take the sheets out and make the bed with it. The most optimal strategy is to take your sheets out while they’re still about 25% wet and make your bed with the sheets. This allows them to finish drying on the bed and lessen the look of wrinkles.
If you are looking for an even crisper look, you can use and iron on low temperature.
As an added gift to your order, all Eucalypso sheets come with a reusable stone-washed tote bag. You can store your sheets in this bag if you prefer!
Please store your sheets in a cool and dry place, away from sunlight.
