The materials that frequently come into contact with your skin, such as bedding, towels, and clothing, should be hygienic as well as comfortable and breathable. You’ve come to the perfect place if you want to maintain a cherished bathrobe you’ve owned for years or if you recently received a robe as a present. Following are some tips for maintaining your Bedding N Bath bathrobe:
How Frequently Wash Your Bathrobe?
Similar to towels, bathrobes often do not require washing after each usage. However, not everyone wears their robe every day, even though you might use a towel after a shower every day. Therefore, washing yours after every third or fourth wear is a good idea.
The length of time you wear your bathrobe and if you wear anything else underneath will determine how frequently you need to wash it. For instance, you don’t need to clean it as often if you only wear your bathrobe over your pajamas for a half-hour each morning while drinking coffee. Alternatively, you could leave your pajamas off or wear them longer.
In any case, you should wash your robe before wearing it again if you spill something on it, wear it outside, or do so while feeling under the weather.
Instructions for Cleaning a Bathrobe, Step-by-Step
These detailed instructions on how to wash a robe will generally work. However, the right approach to cleaning a bathrobe depends on the fabric.
- First, fill your empty washer with roughly a quarter cup of mild (ideally natural) washing detergent.
- Select a delicate cycle with a medium spin speed and chilly or warm/cold water temperature.
- To stop the bathrobe from twisting and knotting, remove the sash. If you have a soft bag, that would be preferable to throw it in with the robe in a loose manner.
- Include bedding, towels, or pajamas in the laundry if they have similar colors and fabrics.
- If your washer permits it, begin the cycle before adding any clothes to give the soap time to dissolve completely. If not, add all the ingredients at once, place the detergent at the bottom, and then begin the cycle.
The Best Ways to Wash a Robe
Consider this professional advice on washing a bathrobe.
The best option is natural laundry soap because it tends to be gentle while still effectively cleaning clothes. Additionally, especially with concentrated detergents, using too much might stiffen materials. It requires approximately 1/4 cup.
OxiClean might be an excellent alternative to optical brighteners and bleach for spot cleaning and stain removal. Similarly, conventional fabric softeners tend to irritate the skin, which you should avoid when washing anything that will cover a sizable area of your body. Wool dryer balls are a good substitute; more on this later.
It’s advisable to divide your materials by color before doing your wash to avoid fading. For instance, washing a white bathrobe with charcoal towels may give it a grey tint.
Avoid packing your washer too full, especially if you’re washing your bathrobe alongside towels because absorbent items require a lot of room in the drum. Ideal fill levels are half or three-quarters total.
How to Dry Your Bathrobe?
You can generally hang out your bathrobe in your bathroom to dry, just as you would a towel if you put it on while it’s still damp from the shower. However, after washing it in the washing machine, you should tumble-dry your robe on low heat in the dryer.
Air drying it by hanging it up also works. With heavy, highly absorbent materials like terry cloth, however, this method might not work as well because they take a lot longer to dry after becoming fully saturated and won’t become as fluffy. You might choose to combine methods and tumble-dry your robe for 20 minutes before finishing it up with air drying.
Indeed, multipurpose dryer balls are an excellent substitute for fabric softeners and dryer sheets. Visit the Bedding N Bath store to have a look at premium quality Bath Robes.
