What temperature should sheets be washed at? When washing bedding you want to wash at 60 degrees on a long wash ie 2 hours plus to make sure that any sweat, dander, dust or other nasties are killed and then removed. Wash all bedding on a full cycle 60-degree wash. Colder temperatures may not kill all the bacteria or remove sweat as effectively.
Should I wash sheets on delicate? Choose a detergent for delicate fabrics to wash silk and satin sheets. A gentle setting in cold water works best. Take care not to use any harsh chemicals that can damage the delicate fabric such as bleach, or fabric softener. Silk and satin sheets should not be put in the dryer, as heat may cause damage to them.
What setting do you wash sheets and towels? When washing towels and sheets, they should be washed on a long hot wash cycle. They need to be washed on hot because your skin cells have been all over them and if you haven’t hung up your towels properly they might have mold and mildew on them.
