How to Care for your Boll & Branch Bedding
In General: How to Wash Bedding
Use a neutral, liquid, biodegradable detergent. If you’re a powder person, just make sure the powder has dissolved before adding your items to the wash.
We do not suggest using bleach. However, if necessary, use a non-chlorine bleach on whites only. Other colors should not be bleached at all.
Wash your items on a cold, gentle cycle and shake items out between washing and drying to keep the wrinkles away.
For Bed Linens
– Boll & Branch sheets will get softer every time you wash them, but wash them before you use them for an ideal fit, since they aren’t pre-shrunk in chemicals like most sheets. You should always be washing sheets before use!
– Avoid washing sheets with towels or blankets, unless you like super linty sheets.
– Tumble dry low. As soon as the dryer finishes, take them out so they don’t get sad and wrinkled.
– If you want a crisper look, or if your mother-in-law is coming over, use a warm iron.
