3. Pay attention to the water temperature when washing
If your bed sheets are made with natural materials, you should wash them at or below 40 °C, the gentle warm temperature can reduce damage to the sheets and avoid shrinkage or deformation of the fabric, it is good enough to dissolve sebum and wash away dirt.
4. Use mild laundry detergent
It is suggested to use non-biological detergents that do not contain optical brighteners, bleaches, or enzymes, as these chemicals destroy natural materials such as wool and silk, cause fabrics to pill, and could aggravate eczema and skin allergy. Also, it is not suggested to use fabric softener because it would reduce beddings’ absorbency and breathability. Instead, you may consider using eco-friendly laundry detergent to maintain your bed linens and also a good choice for a sustainable lifestyle.
