How often should I wash my towels?
We would recommend washing towels once a week following the care instructions on the label, although we'd recommend you wash them at 30°C for a greener way to stay clean. Towels need to be dried thoroughly to avoid bacteria which can be present in damp towels - avoid leaving them on the floor after use!
How often should I wash my duvet cover?
We would recommend washing your bedding once a week to remove the build-up of sweat, body oil and skin that accumulates each night. Clean sheets also provide comfort to aid in better sleep.
What’s the best way to wash my bedsheets?
Hot water helps to kill dust mites and germs that thrive in bedding, so you should use the hottest setting that is safe for the material, always taking into account the care instructions.
Sunshine is a natural disinfectant and helps to brighten whites, so hang your sheets outside every couple of months if you can. Ironing your bed linen will not only help to kill any last remaining germs but also makes your sheets feel softer and easier to store.
Can I wash my duvet at home?
Duvets are typically too big for standard size (7kg) washing machines and could result in a poor clean or damage to your machine. However, If you have a large capacity drum (12kg), you may have space to wash your duvet at home. As a rule of thumb, you should fill the drum to no more than 80% of its capacity.
Professional cleaners such as Laundrapp will use specialist solvents to remove any stains which result in a finish superior to what you are likely to achieve at home. We’d always recommend getting your filled products professionally laundered, as the products need to be bone dry to avoid clumping, mould growth and a residual smell that can be left if there is any dampness in the product, particularly in feather and down items.
