The Benefits Of Washing New Bed Sheets Before You Sleep In Them

Published On: 1 April 2022Categories: News

There is no better feeling than putting on a fresh set of bed sheets and linen and jumping into bed for that first, fresh night’s sleep.

However, before you jump into bed to snuggle up with your new linen set, should you wash them?

Despite the fact that they are brand new and fresh, you absolutely should wash your bed sheets and linen before using them when new.

The benefits of washing your new bed sheets and linen prior to using them are outlined below.

Factory Manufacturing Residue

Bed sheets and linen are produced in factories where chemicals especially, are used in the production of the products and are in exposure to the general factory environment throughout the process. Although not required, this is a prudent step for those especially with sensitive skin. A pre wash prior to use will help minimise the risk of exposing your families and loved ones skin to such chemical residue.

They Are YOUR Sheets

How many times have you gone to the linen store and opened the packaging slightly to feel the texture of the sheets? It happens more than you think and although your sheets may be sealed when you purchased them, who knows how many store hands have previewed your sheets prior to your purchasing? By washing your sheets prior to using them, you wash away any potential dirt, dust and energy from other people who may have inadvertently come in contact with your new fabulous linen set.

So how should you clean your new bed sheets and linen set?

You can clean them at home, but the usual dilemma for home cleaning jobs with bed linen is using the correct cleaning solvents as to not fade or damage the fabrics along with running the risk of overloading your home washer and dryer. 

To help combat this, Master Dry Cleaners has a full doona, blanket and underlay cleaning service that offers professional cleaning practices to help hygienically clean your sheets and bed linen, whilst prolonging the life span and comforting feel of the fabrics.
