Dry your sheets on a clothesline or in your dryer with low heat. Placing your sheets on your bed or folding and storing them immediately after drying will help prevent wrinkles. Make sure your sheets are completely dry before storing so they will stay free of mildew or musty odors. Washing, drying, and storing your bed sheets properly will greatly extend their life.
When shopping for new bed sheets or other bedding items, it's helpful to not only be familiar with the various types of fabrics and fibers, but also to understand the different weaves. What does percale mean? Is sateen the same as satin? What's microfiber? The answers aren't complicated, but knowing them makes it easier to choose the perfect bedding for your needs, whether that's warm sheets for winter, lightweight sheets for summer, or a duvet, sham or throw pillow. Here are brief descriptions of the most common weaves and fabrics you are likely to encounter.
