How To Take Care and Wash Tencel Sheets?

Tencel sheets are well-known for being silky smooth, ultra-breathable, kind on the skin, and manufactured in an environmentally friendly manner. You may, however, have received your sheets and are now scratching your head, wondering, "how do I wash my Tencel sheets?" 

You are right to ask that question, as these sheets are very different from your regular cotton bedsheets. Because they are manufactured differently, the sheet’s fabric holds properties that make them sensitive to strong detergents, bleach, and high heat. Don't worry; we'll be with you every step of the way.

Did you just get your new eucalyptus sheets? Learn how to properly wash and store Tencel sheets using this guide.

Washing

To begin with, unlike many other types of bedding produced with hazardous solvents and chemicals, Sloomy's eucalyptus bed sheets do not need to be washed before use - unless you want to. We mill and produce our sheets without using any toxins or harmful chemicals, and we only utilize the cleanest, highest-quality materials.

We recommend washing your bedding every two to three weeks. Because Sloomy sheets are hypoallergenic, they do not collect or breed bacteria, allowing them to stay clean for more extended periods and requiring fewer washes compared to your regular cotton sheets.

  • Tencel sheets should always be washed in cold water on a moderate cycle.
  • To avoid harming or wearing away the fabric, use a moderate (ideally biodegradable) detergent.
  • To avoid becoming tangled in zippers or locks, which can cause pilling, wash separately from other clothes.
  • Bleach should be avoided since it can be potentially harmful to the fabric.
  • A fabric softener isn't necessarily required because our sheets are already extremely soft!

Drying

Tencel is sensitive to heat. As a result, you should avoid washing it with hot water. It's also why you shouldn't dry your bedding on high heat.

Allowing your linens to air dry, either inside or outside, is a good idea whenever possible. You may put Tencel sheets in the dryer if you're worried about environmental allergens getting on your bed linens while they hang dry outside. However, make sure you're using the lowest heat setting possible, as well as the lowest tumble drying setting.

Take the sheets out of the dryer and make the bed with them as soon as possible to avoid creases. The best method is to remove your sheets while they're still somewhat damp and make your bed with the sheets. This allows them to dry thoroughly on the bed and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

If you really want ultra-crisp sheets or if you have company coming over, you can run an iron over them fast. When ironing, however, you should only use modest temps.

Storing

The most important thing to remember is to keep your bedding out of direct sunlight while not in use. The colour of the cloth will fade if exposed to direct sunlight. Because you should keep your spare sheets away from moisture, avoid storing them in your bathroom closet.

Finally, try putting your linens in a bag or plastic protective container to prevent dust from accumulating on them. You won't have to wash them when you need to use them. They'll be clear of dust and ready to use.

Washing your Tencel sheets shouldn't be as tricky and challenging. As mentioned above, you don't have to wash it very often. These sheets wick moisture remarkably well, making them cleaner for a more extended period compared to cotton.

Our Sloomy Bed Sheet Set comes with care instructions, so make sure to read them in detail. Proper care, storage and washing of your Tencel sheets will definitely make them last for ages. For more information about our Eucalyptus Tencel sheets, visit Sloomy now!
