How to Better Care for Your Cotton Bedding

How to Better Care for Your Cotton Bedding

Choosing organic bedding is a way to incorporate a greater environmental awareness into your every day life, while also improving your own sleep quality. Organic bedding just feels better. This is because the fabric has less contact with harsh chemicals, and provides a naturally soft, sleep-inducing experience.

How to Care for Your Tunatutu Sheet Set

Your Tunatutu organic sheets are soft and durable and of high quality. Tunatutu sheets have never been exposed to pesticides and are made without harsh dyes or chemicals. With proper care, your Tunatutu bedding should last many years. If laundered correctly, our sheets grow softer and more comfortable with each wash.

Washing

You can rest assured that organic bedding is machine washable, so you don’t have to put a huge amount of extra effort when cleaning it. We recommend using a natural, plant-based laundry detergent and ideally washing at 30-40ºC.
Using bleach or whiteners is not recommended because it can damage fibres over time and diminish the depth and vibrancy of the colours. We also recommend not using fabric softeners because they can reduce the absorbency of cotton textiles.

Drying

The ideal method to dry organic cotton bedding is to let it air dry, but try to avoid direct sunlight for excessive periods.
Sometimes a lack of space and temperamental weather may mean air drying is not feasible. In this case, you can use your tumble dryer. We suggest setting the cycle on low heat to avoid damage and shrinkage.

Ironing

It’s safe to steam or iron your bedding on the cotton setting. Avoid spray starches and other additives. If your linens appear twisted from the wash, press along the seams and edges to ensure straight, crisp lines.

Storage

Store your bedding in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Allow the fabric to breathe while in storage.
