  • How often should sheets be washed?

    For sheets that are used on a daily basis, wash them once every two weeks. Ideally, it is best to have two sets that you can rotate each week to preserve the life of your linens.

    High-thread count gets so much hype. Are there different care methods for different counts? Should all sheets (high quality and not-so-high quality) be washed on the same water temperature?
