Linen cupboards can be a source of joy or frustration. It’s easy to get sheets for different beds and duvet cover sizes muddled, mixed up and separated from the matching pillowcases. Here are our tips for getting organised to make your linen cupboard life easier.

Loving your linen

Purchasing good quality sheets, quilts, duvet inners, duvet covers and pillows is an investment. It’s worth taking the time to care for your bed linen, to make sure it lasts.

Taking care when washing your bedding will add years of life to your bed linen. If you are ever unsure how to wash one of our products, read the reverse side of the Wallace Cotton label for care instructions.

Linen cupboard tips

Having three sets of linen for each bed helps manage the laundry mountain. One on the bed, one in the wash and one in the linen cupboard.

For each size bed in your home, group the linen together to make it easier to find. You can use our handy cotton drawstring laundry bags to organise sheets, duvets and pillowcases.

Our sheets and duvet covers have size labels stitched into the inside corner seams to help you identify them easily.

Store off-season duvet inners in our large laundry bags.

It’s good for bedding to have room to breathe so avoid over stuffing your linen cupboard. Have a regular spring clean and taking any unused items to a charity shop.

Use pretty storage boxes to stack pillowcases in, or for overflow items from your bathroom such as spare face cloths, hand soap or moisturiser.

Pop one of our scented stones into your linen cupboard to keep your bedding smelling gorgeous.

Laundering your linens

Most of our range prefers a cold machine wash with a mild detergent.

Avoid washing with bleaches, enzyme detergents or fabric conditioner.

To maintain colour, turn your bed linen inside out to launder and dry naturally in the shade.

To help keep your whites white, add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to your wash.

Fold your bedding straight off the washing line while it is flat and fresh.

For best results, iron cotton bed linen while still slightly damp using a steam iron.

Feathers are a natural product and naturally attract moisture.

Keeping your feathers fluffed and plumped

To keep your feather inners and pillows light and fluffy, regularly air them and give them warm doses of sunshine. This helps maintain loft and reduces moisture. If the sunshine is on holiday, spin your feather inner or pillow in a warm dryer instead, once a month for five minutes maximum, to maintain loft. To clean your feather and down inners and pillows, dry clean only. And make sure your dry-cleaner knows how to handle feather and down products correctly.

One of life’s simple pleasures is wrapping yourself up in a big fluffy towel after a hot shower or a relaxing bath.

Top tips for towels

To look after your new towels, we recommend pre-soaking them in cold water for a few hours before washing. This helps activate the absorbency of the fibres.

Wash colours separately.

Wash in cold water.

Avoid washing with bleaches, enzyme detergents or fabric conditioner.

For lovely fluffy towels, line dry until slightly damp then tumble dry.
