Is it OK to wash bedding at 40 degrees? A good temperature for washing towels and sheets is 40 degrees, but a 60 degree wash will be better at killing germs. Changing your sheets and towels once a week can help to keep them fresh and clean**.
Do you wash sheets in hot or cold water? Water Temperature and Detergent – The best overall temperature to wash your sheets in is warm water. Hot water will fade colors and can be harsh on fine threads. Cold water may not clean your sheets as well as you would like. Choose your favorite detergent or a mild one that will help you care for your sheets properly.
What temp should you wash towels? Since most towels are made from cotton, including the ones at Towel Super Center, we suggest setting the wash temperature to at least 40 degrees on the White/Colors cycle. Wash towels separately from the rest of your laundry and check to ensure there are no specific washing instructions on the towel labels.
