10 WAYS

To Keep Your White Bedding White

Keep your crisp white sheets and bedding looking pristine with these 10 helpful tips!

1.

To point out the obvious—no eating in bed! You’re just asking for stains to happen.

 

2.

Be sure to remove all makeup from your face and neck before bed. Not only is it better for your skin, but it’s also better for your sheets! Skincare and makeup products can stick to your bedding, resulting in an unsightly yellow hue.

White Sheets

Bring home the most versatile sheets in a variety of materials to have the best nights sleep.

3.

If stains do happen (we know accidents happen) be sure to treat the stain right away. The longer it sits, the more likely it is to set. Wet a sponge with warm water and a little dish detergent and gently blot the stain. Stain sprays also work wonders. Be sure to spray directly onto the stain and rub in the liquid with your fingers until most of the stain is lifted. If you can’t throw the item right into the wash, follow up by blotting the area with a cool, damp cloth to pick up any residual marks.

4.

Step away from the bleach. Believe it or not, bleach can actually cause fabrics to yellow over time instead of keeping them white. In lieu of bleach, reach for these household items instead: Lemon juice, baking soda, and vinegar!

The Lemon Juice Method: Simply add ¼ cup of lemon juice to your load of whites right along with your detergent. The powerful citric acid will work on those tough stains during the wash cycle.

6.

Use Baking Soda & Vinegar: These everyday items are natural whiteners. Try adding half a cup of baking soda to your load along with your regular detergent. Then just before the rinse cycle, add half a cup of white vinegar to the load. Don’t worry, the vinegar smell will rinse away. We promise your sheets won’t come out smelling like pickles.

White Blankets

Top off your bed with a lush white blanket to cozy up in.

7.

Be sure to launder your linens regularly. When we sleep, an inevitable build-up of oils, dead skin, dirt and sweat occurs (gross but true). So, it’s important to wash them at least once every other week. Once a week is ideal if your schedule allows!

8.

Separate Your Whites! Again, we know your mother must have told you this at some point, but we’ll kindly remind you: Take the time to separate your colors when doing laundry! It’s just common sense that washing your favorite with a red sock will most likely result in pink bedding. #Fail

9.

Try a Laundry Booster every couple of loads for an extra kick of whitening power. We recommend tried and true OxiClean or Borax.

10.

Use a Mild Drying Method. Line drying is best, although we realize that’s not always the most realistic choice. Instead, tumble drying linens on low is the second best option until the sunny spring and summer months of line drying outdoors becomes possible. Keeping your linens out of the dryer will keep whites from looking dingy and preserve the life of your linens overall.
