Care Guide

All of our bedding comes with care labels and they provide a great starting point to help you take care of your new bedding. But if you want your bedding to last a long time in your home and not the landfill, good bedding maintenance does require a few additional steps. We created this care guide to help answer some commonly asked bedding care questions.

100% French Flax Linen

We recommend washing all our products before use in a cold, gentle cycle using liquid detergent and drying on low heat or hang dry. Always wash your linen sheets by themselves, do not mix them with your other laundry, especially anything with zippers on them. Zippers can snag your sheets and cause holes in them. Do not use bleach, fabric softener, or dry-clean your products, and if you ever stain your sheets, try to wash your sheets immediately. We recommend adding vinegar and baking soda to the wash cycle to brighten your bedding instead.

If you’re drying your linen sheets in the dryer, make sure to empty your lint trap after each cycle. Linen bed sheets will naturally shed any unnecessary fibers during the first few washes. Depending on the size of your dryer, we recommend splitting your laundry load into two cycles to prevent your bedding from getting twisted in the dryer. This will allow your bedding to fluff up and dry evenly, so you never end up with wet sheets when you’re ready for bed.

Linen can last for decades and it gets better with time, softening with every wash, becoming more comfortable as time goes on. Take care of your linen sheets and they will take care of you back!

100% Cotton Percale Sheets 

Our cotton percale sheets are cool and crisp to the touch and prewashed for added softness. Wash percale sheets on a cool or warm cycle and dry on low to medium heat. Do not use high heat, it will break down the natural fibers and cause your sheets to lose its natural softness.

Bedsheets should be washed on their own and not mixed with other laundry, especially anything with zippers on them.

Washing Frequency

Sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers that come in direct contact with your skin should be washed every two weeks.

Storing

We like to have a few extra sets of sheets at home in case of accidents. Storing your sheets correctly is just as important to preserve their quality and freshness. Make sure your sheets are stored in a well ventilated, cool and dry place. Did you know storing sheets in plastic boxes can cause them to yellow? All Airynest sheets come with a reusable cloth bag made of 100% all-natural fiber that is super breathable for your sheets! We recommend storing any additional set of sheets in the cloth bags that they come with to allow them to breathe. This will help keep your sheets fresh and new.
