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.View all bed linen
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.
