Organic Cotton Sheets

Care of Organic Cotton Sheets

With proper care, organic cotton sheets can provide years of comfort. But if not cared-for properly, they can develop a rough texture and have a shortened lifespan. First, do not wash and dry organic cotton sheets with any other items. Just wash them alone on the coolest temperature possible. Dry on a lower setting such as permanent press and remove them immediately when dry. Fluff them out on the bed for a few minutes to let them relax before folding. Also, it is important to rotate the usage. Don't wash and use the same set of sheets week after week. Instead, alternate them with another set so each set will have a resting period.

Because organic cotton sheets are NOT finished with formaldehyde, they are prone to wrinkle more than permanent press sheets (which are finished with formaldehyde). A little more attention to their use and care, as mentioned above, and the wrinkling can be minimized. The softness and feel that results is worth every bit of the extra care they deserve.
