The key to achieving and perfecting your sleep regimen is investing in the best quality sheets possible. There are so many reasons to love linen. Linen is soft and light, breathable yet keeps you warm during cold Vancouver nights.
Unfortunately, linen has a reputation for having heavy lint build-up or fading quickly, but there are ways to help minimize these problems. Linen is a material that cannot be washed the way other fabrics like cotton can be and must be uniquely cared for.
We have put together our best tips in a tutorial to help you keep your linen fresh and ultimately lasting longer.
HOW TO WASH YOUR LINEN SHEETS
Firstly, make sure you separate your linen colours to similar groups of colours. Whites with whites, darks with darks. It’s best to wash linens together and not mix them with heavier material.
Linen is a fast drying material, so if you are machine drying your linen, make sure that you do a short dry at a low temperature (anything under 30°C). We recommend removing your linen from the dryer while they’re still slightly damp to air dry until it completely dries to avoid stiffening your sheets.
Do not dry-clean or tumble dry under high heat, wring out or use bleach on your linen. This will damage them and shorten their lifespan.
Here's a quick tip for keeping your linen fresh-- use linen spray on your sheets between washes.
