Washing Care

Yes, definitely! Do remember to wash HyggeB sheets separately from other laundry to prevent objects like a zipper, hooks, or other rough fabrics from
causing the sheets to pill.

Also, make sure you set the machine to cold water setting at a maximum of 85°F/29°C and a short gentle spin cycle, at max 30 minute duration if possible. 

Line dry it! Drape them flat on the line to preserve the fibers, texture, and colors. Believe it or not, the sheets will gradually straighten themselves when you line dry them!

But if some still prefer to use a dryer, please remember to choose a low heat or airing setting along with a low tumble cycle! Immediately remove your HyggeB sheets from the dryer when the drying is completed to avoid horrible wrinkles. 

While it's generally safe to hang bamboo sheets in the sun occasionally to freshen them up and help reduce moisture, excessive sun exposure can damage them. Prolonged direct sunlight may cause the colors to fade and weaken the fabric over time. It's best to limit sun exposure and not leave bamboo sheets in the sun for extended periods.

We’d prefer a mild, liquid detergent. If you prefer powder detergent, then do make sure it’s dissolved before adding HyggeB sheets to the wash.

Many ask if they can use fabric softener and HyggeB’s answer to them is, nah. It's not recommended to use fabric softener on bamboo sheets. Bamboo fabric is naturally soft, and adding fabric softener can leave a residue that affects their natural qualities.

Not to worry, HyggeB sheets are best at draping themselves. Trust me, all you have to do is to fit them nicely back onto your bed and Ta-da! You’ll see those wrinkles going away in a few nights of sleep! Of course, if you’d prefer your HyggeB sheets to have a crispier look almost immediately, then you can try steaming them at low temperature and keep a safe distance.

Take note: Do not use bleach. Bleach is way too harsh for your delicate HyggeB sheets. You can try milder and eco-friendly labelled stain remover. But before you do that, try it on the HyggeB drawstring bag that came wrapped around your sheets. Another more friendly method is to simply soak your sheets in water with some laundry detergent and baking soda.

We’d advice not to use these brightener or whitening detergent that comes with harsh chemicals on your HyggeB’s sheets. One suggestion is to make your own mild ‘bleach’ by using baking soda and vinegar. Start by adding a ½ cup of baking soda to the wash cycle and then a ½ cup of white vinegar during the rinse cycle. Take note not to combine both to avoid unnecessary chemical reaction that will cause damage to your HyggeB sheets!

Tips: Try this method with care only on light color or white sheets! 

Fabric pilling can be influenced by the type of fabric, even with high-quality materials like Bamboo, TENCEL™ or Silk, due to their smooth texture and lower fiber friction. Low-quality fabrics can also be prone to pilling.

Heat and Abrasion: Pilling is primarily caused by excessive heat, friction, and harsh washing chemicals. When the sheets are exposed to these factors, the fabric's fibers can break and form pills. Use mild detergent and wash your sheets with water below 30 Degrees Celsius. Opt for low spin and shorter duration wash cycle (30 min) to reduce the amount of exposure to abrasion.

Short Hair or Facial Hair: People with short hair or facial hair may experience pilling on their pillowcases. The stubble from hair can create friction and cause the fibers to pull and form pills.

Lack of Cushioning: Not using a mattress and pillow protector can result in increased friction between the sheets and the mattress or pillows. The absence of cushioning can lead to pilling.

Sharing Pillowcases: Avoid sharing pillowcases, especially with individuals who have short hair or facial hair. As mentioned earlier on, the stubble from hair can create friction and cause the fibers to pull and form pills.

Lack of Adverse Anti-Pilling Agents: In the absence of these agents, the fabric becomes more vulnerable to pilling. At HyggeB, we prioritize the minimal use of harmful chemicals as part of our commitment to safeguarding our customers. We take great pride in our dedication to providing protection, especially for those with skin conditions.

Other Contributing Factors: Specific areas of bedsheets may develop pilling due to factors such as rough heels, coarse sleeping garments, shaven body hair, and sharp nails, which can all contribute to increased friction and wear on the fabric.

In summary, the absence of anti-pilling chemicals, along with heat, friction, and various personal habits, can contribute to the development of pilling on bedsheets. Proper care and precautions, as recommended, can help minimize the occurrence of pilling.

Pilling is a natural and unavoidable occurrence, but there are methods to address it:

1. If the pilling is minimal and confined to a small area, it can be manually removed with your fingers.

2. For larger surface areas with more significant pilling, consider utilizing professional laundry services. They possess the expertise and industrial equipment to effectively reduce pilling and restore a smoother texture.

3. As a last resort, when you believe the fabric has reached the end of its useful life, carefully using a pill-removing shaver can be an option to remove pills. They are readily available for purchase online.
