The Ultimate Guide To Caring For Your bed linen

Bed Linen Care - How?

Discover how to maintain your bed linen in top shape with these easy, practical guidelines, which include everything from washing and ironing suggestions to storing recommendations.

Smart Washing

When we say smart washing, it means using some helpful hacks while washing your bed linen.

Button all buttons and zip all zippers before loading to avoid hooking, tugging, ripping, and post-laundry sad faces.

To get the best results, don't fill up the machine, and avoid tossing towels in with your bedding because they tend to develop lint that can stick to your bed sheets.

While it has always been said that hot water is ideal for washing bed linens, it's actually better to use cold water. Hot water weakens fibres, fades colours, and causes shrinking. Using cold water reduces wear and tear on your sheets and saves energy, which means it has a lower environmental impact.

Dry the Linens in the Shade

Prefer line-drying your clothes indoors or outdoors, keeping them out of direct sunshine. There are numerous benefits here: it not only saves energy and extends the life of bedding, but it also helps materials feel and smell better. Untangle fabrics that have twisted during the wash cycle before putting them in the dryer.

Washing Periodicity

Sheets, pillow covers should be replaced every one to two weeks. This should be more frequent when someone is unwell. Comforters, pillows, and decorative pillow cases should be washed 2-4 times a year, and whenever spills or stains occur.

For Decorative pillows, follow the care directions on the label of each pillow, and spot clean as needed.

Bedding Storage

Make sure your bedding is thoroughly dry before folding and storing it. It will help avoid mildew and the damp odour that comes with it.

The natural fibres need to breathe; Store your bedding in a cool, dry place with adequate air circulation. Avoid cardboard or plastic storage, which can yellow over time.

Use Bedding Protectors

Use of bedding protectors aids in avoiding the bed bugs in your mattress extending the life of your products. Our mattress protectors provide an extra layer of softness and comfort while also protecting and extending its life. Mattress protectors can also protect mattresses from night sweats.

Avoid Fabric Softeners & Bleach

Powdered detergent, fabric softeners, and bleaching agents bind and weaken natural fabrics, so avoid them if you want your bedding to retain its high quality. To prevent discoloration, use mild detergents for washing.

Comforter Care - How?

Comforter is a quilted soft blanket, which is used to keep you warm. The Duroflex Snug - Reversible Microfibre Comforter comes lightweight and is washable. This anti-allergy comforter is hypoallergenic and will keep you warm while also feeling light and comfortable. It retains the stuffing in place for superior comfort and long-term durability. Because the comforter is reversible, you may match it to your mood or your surroundings as needed. You can wash our comforter easily in a washing machine.

Decorative comforters, on the other hand, come in a range of colours and shapes and do not require covers. The comforter covers should be washed weekly—monthly if you use a top sheet—but the comforter itself won't need to be washed unless anything spills on it. Launder comforters as needed, following the label's directions.

Mattress Care - How?

The best approach to protect your mattress from allergy-inducing dust is to use a mattress protector. You can consider buying a Duroflex mattress protector as they are antiviral, antibacterial, 100% waterproof and stain proof, and are absolutely safe for your skin. It prevents perspiration from seeping into the mattress, which might cause it to deteriorate faster. Duroflex mattresses are built so well that they don't need to be flipped. To have your mattress stay fresh and hygienic it is best to get professional deep cleaning done bi-annually.

Using a cover can help to extend the life of your mattress. When your mattress causes you a stiff back, it's time to replace it; it's likely lost its softness and the springs have worn down.
