Tencel sheets are made from one of the softest, most breathable fabrics known to man. It is hypoallergenic and has natural anti-bacterial properties. This makes Tencel sheets an excellent choice for people who suffer from allergies or with sensitive skin.
Sloomy's eucalyptus Tencel sheets are like a breath of fresh air that feels soft and cool no matter how hot it is outside.
However, Tencel sheets require as much maintenance as other materials to maintain optimum softness and durability for years to come. Tencel sheets should be washed once every two weeks at a minimum, but ideally, you should clean them every week to ensure they remain free from bacteria and dirt, which can cause skin irritations.
Should you change your Tencel sheets twice a month? Once a week? In this article, we will discuss how often you should wash and change your sheets.
Why Do Eucalyptus Tencel Sheets Require Less Cleaning Than Cotton?
Tencel sheets do not need to be washed as often as cotton because it is a superior natural fabric. It has a moisture-wicking ability to absorb sweat quickly and has natural anti-bacterial properties due to its lyocell fibres, which remove the need for additional cleaning.
Cotton is known to trap dirt and moisture, making it a breeding ground for bacteria, moulds and mildew, which can irritate your skin as well as cause allergic reactions in those with sensitive skin.
This makes Sloomy's Tencel sheets cleaner for more extended periods of time.
How to Maintain the Softness of Your Tencel Sheets?
One magical component that Tencel sheets are known for is that they will become softer after every wash. Thus, they don’t need to be tumbled in order to keep their softness or fluffiness.
Tencel sheets are naturally soft and fluffy, which means there is no need to fight with fabric softeners which can leave residue on your Tencel sheet's fibres after repeated use.
When Should I Change My Sheets?
Although these sheets stay cleaner longer than other fabrics, you may still want to consider changing Sloomy Tencel sheets every week if you have sweaty nights or suffer from allergies.
How to Wash Tencel Sheets?
Tencel sheets can be washed in cold or tepid water. It is essential not to use bleach as Tencel sheets are naturally anti-bacterial and can be easily bleached.
Do not wash Tencel sheets with other fabrics, especially rough fabrics such as denim and corduroy, because they will potentially pill and lose their softness after time due to the rough fibres of the other fabric.
When drying these sheets, removing them from the dryer before they become completely dry aids in keeping the sheet's strands smooth by restoring moisture which helps your sheet maintain its softness for longer. Tencel sheets should always be hung to dry so they will keep their fluffiness and not become stiff and crunchy.
Do Tencel Sheets Become Threadbare?
No. Tencel sheets are made from tencel fibres which are naturally strong, and Tencel sheets maintain their integrity well beyond that of cotton or silk, making Tencel sheets last longer than other fabrics.
You can expect Tencel sheets to last 3 to 5 years as Tencel sheets are one of the most durable natural fibres on the market.
