We know it’s tempting to remove your new Sleep Collections sheet set and put them straight on your bed but definitely wash them first. Pop the new sheets in a warm machine wash and if you’ve purchased coloured sheets, you should wash them separately from whites. Avoid using a superhot wash on new sheets, especially our premium Tencel © Cotton range to avoid damaging the delicate fibres.
Who’s got time to iron sheets? There are plenty of ways to get your sheets looking smooth and wrinkle free without pulling out the squeaky ironing board. When you wash your sheets, remove from the machine straight away while they are wet and ideally shake them and hang outside on the line in the sun in a cool breeze. Another reason to buy our Sleepyhead sheets and pillowcases is that they contain Tencel© which wrinkle less than cotton. If you have to use your dryer for wet sheets, use a low heat to avoid damaging the fibres, don’t overstuff them inside the machine and to quicken the drying process throw in a dry towel to absorb moisture. A fabric softener during the washing process will also help leave fewer crinkles in your sheets.
