How To Wash Egyptian Cotton
Keep Your Cotton Looking Its Best
Washing Egyptian Cotton Bed Sheets and Linens
When it comes to washing your new items, don't turn the temperatures up too high. A cool wash of 40 degrees Celsius will keep your bedding looking its best. To stop colours from running, make sure to separate darks and lights before putting anything into the machine - and look out for rogue socks that could ruin everything!
One useful tip that you might not be aware of is to keep your Egyptian cotton away from other types of fabric. If you throw it into the washer alongside polyester, polycotton or acrylic fabrics, these fibres can cause aggravation. Your cotton could pill faster and look older after just a few washes. To avoid this, it's best to only wash cotton with cotton.
Egyptian cotton bedding can be tumble-dried on a low setting. To keep it looking its best, take it out of the dryer right after the cycle is completed, and iron quickly, while it's still very slightly damp, before folding and putting away. You might find that your bedding lasts longer if you hang it out to dry. This is also an environmentally friendly option, and it can reduce creases, allowing you to cut down on ironing time.
