How to Care for Your Crane & Canopy Bedding
Beautifully simple tips on how to keep your bedding looking great!
Properly washing is a pillar of bedding care. When washing your bedding, add one set of linens, or your duvet, per wash. This will allow for your sheets to be thoroughly and evenly cleaned.
It is best to wash your bedding on a cold water gentle cycle with a mild detergent. Make sure the zippers are closed prior to washing or drying. If you feel your bedding is particularly soiled, you can use warm water and a stronger detergent.
Avoid any products containing chlorine bleach or benzoyl peroxide and alpha hydroxy acid. Use of chlorine bleach or residual bleach from previous laundry loads can lead to discoloration, and weakened and thinner fibers on your linens. This will diminish the life of your linens, which can last upwards of ten years if cared for properly. If you do use bleach, only use a color-safe bleach alternative to keeps your whites white and your colors bright!
Harsh heat can hurt your bedding, so air dry whenever possible. If machine drying is needed, be sure to use a low-heat setting such as delicate or permanent press.
When using a machine to dry your bedding, consider popping in a lavender laundry sachet during the cycle to give your bedding a lovely fresh scent.
Remove your bedding from the dryer as soon as possible to avoid letting wrinkles set. To get truly wrinkle-free bedding, use an iron on the appropriate heat setting to get rid of any wrinkles.
Caring for Your Pintuck Bedding
In order to create the pleated and voluminous look, each one of the pintucks on the Valencia is hand sewn individually and with care. While our pintucks are reinforced, we recommend you still handle the Valencia with care to maintain its textured look.
Unbalanced pressure or tension may cause the pintucks to come undone. If for any reason your pintucks come undone, please contact your local seamstress.
Here are some friendly care tips:
- Make sure there is nothing on top of your pintuck bedding when making or adjusting your bed.
- When adjusting your pintuck bedding, use the underside of the duvet, vs. the pintuck top.
- Make sure the zippers are closed prior to washing or drying. Wash on cold, gentle cycle.
- While bed jumping is encouraged at Crane & Canopy, try not to jump on your pintuck bedding.
Take care of stains as soon as possible, before they set in. If you can get to spills while they're still wet, it can come out more easily. Make sure that your cleaners are safe to use on fabrics.
