Massage sheets and are an integral part of a spa experience and as a therapist, you want your clients to feel relaxed and comfortable in freshly laundered sheets. But how do you keep your sheets fresh, clean and at the same time make them durable? This looks like a mammoth task especially when you are always doing a heap full of laundry each day, every day of the year. That’s like 250-365 wash cycles per sheet at the bare minimum.
Well, we got you covered.
Here are some tips and tricks that will help you care for your sheets and linens:
4. Wonderful Washing, No Fire Fighting
Choosing the right washing cycles is key to maintaining your sheets. Always wash your sheets and linens in lukewarm water. Avoid hot water as it will “cook” the oil into the sheets/linens, making the oil stick to the sheets. Over time, these sheets will become dense with oil residue and a real fire hazard for your dryer.
We recommend drying at a low to medium temperature (depending on the material of the sheet). High heat with oil residue in sheets is a major fire hazard. Remove the sheets as soon as they dry, to avoid wrinkles. If the oil stains are not completely removed, repeat the washing process for a second time. Always read your washing machine and dryer instructions before using.
5. Bye Bye Bleach
When washing your sheets, avoid using bleach all together. Bleach will damage the cotton fibres and over time you will get those pesky holes.
Go Organic: If you need to brighten your white sheets, here is an age-old trusted method – Add 1/2 cup of vinegar or 1/4 cup of lemon juice to your wash. Wash your sheets in warm water with a cold water rinse.
We recommend using a low heat setting and throwing in a few tennis or wool balls to reduce the drying time. Remove sheets/linens as soon as the dryer stops to avoid wrinkles.
Let’s massage and not worry about stains, holes, and fires.
