How to wash bed linens for that luxurious hotel feel: the key secrets

Tips and tricks for effectively laundering clothes

Expensive hotels attract with high-quality and soft bedding. If you want to create similar conditions in your own home, there are several aspects to consider: from the choice of textiles (it is best to buy linen made from natural fabrics) to the correct washing regimen.

It is important to choose a high-quality detergent and use a fabric softener. Read how to wash the bed to make it soft and smell good in the OBOZREVATEL article.

Sorting before washing

The laundry is sorted according to the water temperature recommendations. This information is usually found on the product label. In addition, the laundry is sorted by category:

  • white items
  • colored textiles
  • dark linen

Bed linen is often affected by dust mites. They die at a temperature of 50 degrees, and this is the optimal indicator for washing sheets and pillowcases made of any natural fabrics. In addition, it is important to set the maximum wash cycle - at least two hours.

Pre-treating stains

Pretreatment will help to get rid of stubborn stains. You can use a stain remover, liquid detergent, or folk recipes.

You can also treat stains with vinegar before washing. Apply a mixture of the substance with water in a 1:1 ratio and leave for a few minutes. After that, wash the clothes as usual. In case of heavy soiling, use undiluted vinegar.

Washing powder

It is important to add the optimal dose of powder to the container. Excess household chemicals will remain on the fabrics and penetrate the fibers. As a result, the white bed will darken, and colored fabrics will begin to fade.

Fabric softener

Fabric softener softens the fabric, so cleaning experts advise not to ignore this detergent. But please note that an excessive amount of fabric softener will have the opposite effect - the fabric will become stiff.

Washing features

Overfilling the washing machine drum will not save you time, water, or electricity. On the contrary, the washing efficiency of an overloaded machine is significantly reduced. Several processes are impaired:

  • rinsing
  • washing
  • spinning.

In addition, there is a high risk of damage to the washing machine.

Drying the laundry 

If your washing machine has a drying mode, use the low-intensity program. It is worth noting that colored laundry should be dried very carefully in the sun - it can fade.
