Tips to Properly Care for your Solid Color or Abstract Color Bedding Set

Do not mix white bedding with colored bedding. You want your solid white color bedding to stay white just like any hotel quality bedding. Also don’t wash bedding with your clothes since metal zippers can cause abrasion and ruin your bedding.
Use mild detergent in warm or cold water on a gentle cycle. Also, mild detergent is good for people with bad allergies who are using hypoallergenic alternative comforter. Some people prefer hot water but it affects the longevity of your bedding.
Don’t use products containing chlorine bleach, benzoyl peroxide or detergents with color brighteners. These products can discolor and weaken your bedding.
Don’t overload your washing machine. Overloading your machine will not clean your bedding and also ruin it. It is better to take your bulky comforter to a Laundromat or to a professional cleaner.
Wash comforter or duvet covers weekly. If you have a comforter cover you may wash your comforter monthly unless you spill or stain it.
If you stain or spill something on your bedding make sure to remove it immediately. The longer the stain set on the bedding the harder to remove it especially on white bedding.
Check the care label for drying instructions. Make sure that comforters or duvets are thoroughly dry since moisture, which could lead to mold and mildew.
Store your folded bedding and comforter in a cool, dry place. Avoid using a plastic bag since there's no air circulation.
