How to Clean Egyptian Cotton Sheets

Cotton sheets with thread counts that are high are softer than their low-thread-count counterparts. It’s possible to package more threads into a smaller space because Egyptian cotton fibers are thinner and longer than cotton fibers. Egyptian cotton doesn’t pill, and allergies doesn’t irritate, but it does need cleaning. Washing your sheets helps keep them tender and clean.

Set the washing machine. If your sheets are particularly dirty, use water no hotter than 105 degrees Fahrenheit. For one pair of sheets, place the washer for a regular load.

In the event that you’ve got a top loader, as the washing machine fills add laundry detergent for a different detergent or washables. Add the detergent into the detergent dispenser according to the package instructions for washing machines.

Put the sheets in the washing machine independently. Following the machine matches with a top loader, add the sheets. Prior to filling it with 16, with a front loader, add the sheets into the machine.

Add 1 scoop of oxygen bleach into the water or bleach dispenser if desired. Oxygen bleach helps remove and lighten stains from white and light sheets.

Hang the sheets to wash if possible. Set the sheets if you don’t have a clothesline and use the air-dry cycle.
