How do you wash sheets without getting them tangled? Wash sheets separately: For the best results, it’s a good idea to run your sheets through their own wash cycle. Throwing in smaller articles like clothes and socks will increase the chance of things getting tangled up during the wash cycle.
Why do my sheets get all twisted in the washing machine?

How do you wash bed sheets in the washing machine? Wash sheets in cold water, as the default. Use the “normal” cycle (also called “regular” or “permanent press”).

Why do my sheets twist up in the dryer? Sheets tend to twist and ball up when they don’t have ample room to toss. Other items in the dryer can tangle in the sheets, resulting in damp fabrics at the end of the cycle.
