There is nothing better than slipping into crisp linen sheets at the end of a long day, isn’t it? The soft fabric gently massages your skin, the feeling of fresh bedding provides a relaxing feeling and you can peacefully unwind and drift into sleep.
Sounds great, right? And it is! But to have the best bedding experience, proper care must be taken. Linen is low maintenance, so washing your sheets is quite easy and effortless. But another important aspect that ensures your linens are fresh is the way you store them. Ensuring good air circulation, dark and dry space is crucial if you want to keep your linens in the best shape possible. Also, no one loves a messy linen closet, so knowing how to store your linen bedding is a true win-win.
Here we share some useful suggestions on how to store your linen bedding to always keep it fresh and clean.
If your linen closet stores more linen bedding pieces than you usually use, find another place for those rarely used pieces elsewhere. This way your bedding will not be stuffed tightly and the air will circulate freely, preventing unpleasant smells.
This one is obvious, but never put used linen sheets, linen pillowcases, or other bedding pieces with the fresh ones.
Make sure your linen closet or any other place you store your bedding is dry and dark. Humid air can cause foul smells even in freshly washed bedding. And a direct light may change the color of the fabric.
Have you ever lost a piece of bedding in the closet or found a pillowcase you thought you threw away? Or suddenly realize that the sheets you thought were washed and stored in the wardrobe were actually still in the washing bag? Storing your bedding by category will let you clearly see what is in your closet and keep track of what needs to be washed.
Another great way to organize and ensure freshness is by storing your linen sheets in fabric-friendly containers. White fabric bags are perfect for that as they allow air to circulate and help you separate the pieces by category.
Linen fitted sheets are practical and easy to use. However, folding them may be quite a challenge if you don’t know how to do it. Leaving your fitted sheets messy may cause them to aerate poorly and lose freshness, especially if stored in a warmer and damper place. Here is a useful step-by-step guide on how to fold fitted sheets - trust us, it’s easy once you get the hang of it!
This one is truly helpful if you need to dress more than one bed in your house. Print small waterproof labels with bedding piece name and size and sew or stick to all your linen bedding pieces. This way you will easily find what you need without taking everything out of the closet.
