Get best Bed & Bath Linen From Rekhas House of Cotton

Bright, white bedding is the most popular bedding out there. It’s versatile and will never go out of fashion. But with great white bedding comes great responsibility, as that whiteness we all love can easily stain or look a bit dull if it’s not looked after properly. Rekhas House of Cotton – India’s Leading Manufacturer of Bed & Bath Linen supplies luxury white bedding for hotels & resorts bedding all accross the globe.

So, if you’ve just bought some hotel quality white bedding from us, here’s our tips on how you can keep your bedding white.

Don’t Eat Or Drink In Bed, And Remove Any Makeup Too

Climbing into bed at the end of a long day, switching on the TV and cracking open a bar of chocolate to wolf down. It sounds relaxing, but it’s definitely not good for either you or your white bedding. 

So, Rekhas House of Cotton is here to tell you to avoid drinking and eating in bed too, as it’s a quick way to stain those beautiful white sheets you just spent your hard-earned cash on. All it takes is a single drop from that glass of red wine you took to bed with you, as getting it out can often be a nightmare.

Another thing that can cause staining on your white bedding is makeup. Remove any makeup or skincare products from your face and neck before you get into bed. If you don’t, you’ll just end up with unsightly brown marks all over your bedding, particularly as we tend to sweat during the night. Removing makeup before sleep is also much better for your skin.

If A Stain Does Happen, Deal With It Straight Away

If you decided to ignore the above advice about not eating in bed (who I am to say you can’t have the occasional breakfast in bed?) or wearing makeup when you go to sleep, you’ve more than likely got a stain on your hands. Don’t panic, just make sure you deal with it straight away as the longer you wait, the more time the stain has to set in and then it becomes really difficult to get rid of.

A good tip to get rid of stains on white bedding is one that doesn’t require any specialist product or equipment. Simply wet a sponge with warm water and add a little washing up liquid, before gently dabbing away at the stain. You should then stick your bedding in the washing machine for good measure, and always follow the washing instructions on the label.

Wash Your White Bedding Regularly

Washing your bedding on a regular basis should really go without saying, but you’ll be surprised how long bedding can stay on a bed when we’re so wrapped up in our busy lives. During sleep, we shed dead skin, sweat and natural oils end up on the bedding, as well as other dirt and things that we’re not going to mention here! Basically, if you don’t wash your bedding then all you’re doing is sleeping in your own dirt.

We recommend washing your home bedding at least once every two weeks. If you have the time, then once a week is even better. Just be sure you have spare bedding to use while your dirty bedding is being washed and dried. Luckily, we’ve got plenty available in our bedroom section.

While this article is largely talking about white bed sheets, pillowcases and duvet covers, we also have some advice on how often you should wash duvets and pillows.

When you do wash your white bedding, it’s crucial that you separate your whites from other colours. Always be diligent in checking your white bedding is on its own, as all it takes is one errant piece of pink underwear for the dye to transfer and ruin your whites.

Finally, when it comes to drying your white bedding then line drying is always best. Again, always check the washing instructions on your bedding, but you’ll find it best to run a drying cycle on low for a short time. This is especially the case when it comes to bed sheets, as leaving them in the dryer for too long will lead to shrinkage.
