How to choose bed linen?

Now the bed linen market is huge and rich in a variety of designs and fabrics, from coarse calico to satin. Also, recently, bed manufacturers have been focusing on European standards in terms of dimensions and parameters. Because of this, it is very difficult to make the right choice when buying underwear. What to do? It’s simple, see below.

How to properly measure a bed?

How to choose the right bedding? Of course, you need to start by measuring the bed. To do this, you need to measure all the components, namely the mattress, pillows and blanket. If you determine the size once, it will be easy for you to select bedding sets, as well as bedspreads and decorative textiles in the future. For such measurements, it is recommended to take a tape measure or centimeter tape.


You need to measure the length of the mattress, add the height to the right and left to it, then measure the width, add the height from the top and bottom, in this case you get the size of the sheet.

Duvet cover

In order to determine the size of the duvet cover, you should measure the width and length of the blanket.

But at the same time, about 3-5 cm should be added on each side so that the new duvet cover is not small, because a slight shrinkage will definitely occur during the first wash.


Pillowcase sizes are easy to determine: measure the length and width of the pillows, adding 1 cm on each side.

How to wash bed linen?

There are several rules, the observance of which will significantly extend the life of your bed linen.

Many people remember how our grandparents, mothers and fathers often arranged washing with boiling clothes, choosing the hottest washing mode, maximum speed, etc. But is it right?

Modern washing machines do a very good job of removing dirt and dust, even at low washing temperatures. But those dyes, softeners that are used in the final stages of finishing at high temperatures are irrevocably washed off, which leads to a loss of gloss, softness, silkiness, creases, whitishness and pellets appear.

All over the world, fabric and chemical manufacturers recommend a 40 degree wash cycle.

Is it possible to boil clothes? Yes, as long as it is snow-white satin, percale or poplin, a fabric that does not contain coloring pigments. That is why hotels use predominantly white fabrics for bed linen and towels. After all, such a tissue can be subjected to autoclaving technology: the removal of microbes, microorganisms by steam treatment at high pressure.

What else is important? It is advisable to wash cotton fabrics separately from other fabrics. The fact is that the fibers may contain blotches of cotton fluff, particles of cotton bolls, on which finer wool fibers can be wound during washing if you put a sweater or scarf next to the drum. And now the linen was covered with unpleasant spools.

There is one more recommendation: do not fill the drum all the way! If there is space in the drum, the fabric stretches better, wrinkles less. It is recommended to fill the drum to half the norm — so the products will be washed as carefully as possible.

In the final stages of washing, add conditioner, this will give a pleasant aroma and extra softness.
