If cared for properly, you can keep your Tencel sheets looking beautiful for years to come. Here are some simple guidelines:
Wash your Tencel sheets with like colours on low temperatures in cold water, and keep them separate from other laundry to avoid getting hooked to zippers or latches, which can cause pilling. Use the gentle machine cycle and a mild detergent to prevent damaging or wearing away the fabric. Avoid using bleach and fabric softeners, and do not dry-clean your Tencel sheets.
You can tumble dry your sheets so long as you use low heat and a gentle tumble setting. Remove the Tencel sheets from the dryer when slightly damp and hang or lay flat to dry. When hanging the sheets out to dry, keep out of direct sunlight.
For a pressed look, iron the sheets while they are still slightly damp, on low heat setting.
Store your Tencel sheets in a cool and dry place, away from the sunlight. The best is to store your Tencel sheets in the nifty cotton drawstring bag which your sheets came in.
