Can I Wash Sheets and Towels Together?

Merry Maids of Sycamore - Can I Wash Sheets and Towels Together?

Have you ever thrown your sheets and towels in the wash together, only to wonder if it’s actually a good idea? Well, wonder no more! When you combine your sheets and towels in the same laundry cycle, there’s a chance that the towels can snag on the bedding and shorten the life of your linens.

Plus, towels are often thicker and more absorbent, making it difficult to dry in the same cycle. However, if you regularly wash your sheets and towels together (being sure not to overload the machine), you’ll know exactly what to expect.

The Disadvantages of Washing Together

When doing laundry, some people toss everything together without a second thought. But washing them together can actually have some downsides! For starters, towels shed a lot of lint, which can stick to your sheets. Also, if your towels are particularly dirty, it can transfer onto your bedding, creating a not-so-pleasant nighttime experience.

How to Protect from Damage

Doing laundry isn’t exactly the most exciting task on our to-do list, but it’s a necessary one! Remember to take caution when washing different types of linens together, as they can easily get damaged. One easy way to protect your linens is to sort them out based on fabric type and wash them separately.

Additionally, be sure to use the appropriate washing cycle and temperature for each type of fabric. And if you want to go the extra mile, consider using a mesh laundry bag to further protect items from getting tangled up in the machine. By following these tips, you can help ensure that your linens come out looking clean and damage-free every time.
