How Can I Prevent My Sheets From Pilling?

You can keep your new organic cotton sheets from pilling if you care for them properly, which I will explain to you here today.

Pilling is when those annoying little balls of material develop on your sheets after a few trips to the wash and dry. When sheets develop pills they can be unsightly and uncomfortable, causing your sheets to become scratchy.Shop for high quality, 100% Cotton Sheets that are smooth to the touch and have a minimum weight of 4 ounces per square yard, like sheets available in the Nest Bedding store.

  • Always avoid hot temperatures when washing and drying as they tend to weaken fibers..
  • Avoid brighteners and other bleaching agents; they weaken and discolor fibers. To brighten whites, add 1/4 cup lemon juice to the wash cycle instead of bleach.
  • Dry on the low or medium heat setting; over-drying sheets weakens fibers and bakes off finishes. Line drying is best if practical.
  • Store laundered, completely dry sheets in a dry, cool place away from direct sunlight.
  • Keep at least three sets of sheets for each bed and rotate weekly.
  • To keep sets together and the linen closet neat, store each set in a matching pillowcase.
  • Use mild detergent or soap nuts and wait until it's diluted before putting sheets in the washer. Undiluted detergents can discolor fabric. Don't overdo the detergent: If it isn't completely rinsed out, sheets will feel stiff. Use half the manufacturer's recommended amount, and add one cup of white vinegar to the rinse water to remove all traces of detergent
