How to care for your bedding ?

In order to ensure the colors of your bedding do not fade over time, choose high-quality items that are easy to clean and maintain. In addition to aerating your duvet cover daily, remember to regularly change your sheets.

First use:

Always wash your bedding before using it for the first time, regardless of its material. New linen is of course very clean, but should still be washed before use. Washing removes dust, freshens, and loosens the fabric. It also provides a fresh and pleasant laundry scent that optimizes your sleeping experience. We recommend washing new linen on a cold setting (86°F maximum), without detergent.

Regular washing:

Tips to heed for all materials:

  • Follow the instructions on the care label.
  • Wash items inside-out and use a liquid detergent (special color-protecting detergent or white detergent for white linen). At low temperatures, powder detergents do not dissolve fully and can leave white marks on bedding
  • Wash the pieces of a set together to ensure they all look the same after multiple washes.
  • Separate whites from colored items. Feel free to use a color catcher wipe if an item is both white and colored.
  • Use a detergent with optical brighteners to brighten up white linen.

  • Specific tips: Percale and sateen

  • Bedding is usually washed at 140°F. However, we recommend washing at a maximum of 104°F (cotton setting) to preserve the quality of your linen.
  • If possible, iron your linen while it is still slightly damp. This will make ironing easier.
  • Line drying is better than tumble drying. In fact, tumble drying can damage your linen
  • Bright colors stay vibrant longer when dried in the shade, as direct sunlight can cause linen to fade. As a result, turn your (colored) linen inside-out before hanging it on the line.
  • Our percale bedding benefits from an Easy Care treatment, which means a quick ironing is sufficient.
  • If your linen is embroidered, iron it inside-out.

  • Ironing:

    Regardless of the material of your bedding, try to iron it while it's still slightly damp: this will make ironing easier. If your linen is embroidered, iron it inside-out. Please note that most of our products are treated with Extra Easy Care, which protects your linen from creasing and makes it easier (or even eliminates the need) to iron.

    Did you know?

  • Washing with a spoonful of baking soda or sodium percarbonate brings whites back to life!
  • Certain face creams/treatments can discolor bedding. Remember to protect your pillowcase if you are undergoing such a treatment.
  • Never hang white linen outside during a full moon...

  • Feel free to use a pillow mister or add a few drops of essential oils to your humidifier to freshen your bedding

    How to care for your bath ?

    Anne de Solène offers top-of-the-line bath linen that provides for everyday softness in the bathroom. Here are a few tips to help you maintain the radiance and absorption qualities of your bath


  • Before the first use, wash terry cloth at 140°F to remove the treatments used during production and to obtain the best absorption results.
  • Wash dark terry cloth separately for the first three washes (possibility of bleeding), and feel free to use a color catcher wipe. As a rule of thumb, always separate light and dark colors to prevent the fibers of one color from being deposited on the other.
  • During regular washing, wash terry cloth at 140°F with a liquid detergent and no fabric softener, which has a tendency of coating cotton fibers and reducing their absorbency.
  • Wash terry velour with a full load and tumble dry to prevent lint (from the shaving) during the first use of the product.

  • Drying:

    Tumble drying is recommended for bath. In fact, it will make your linen softer and fluffier. However, be careful with the temperature of your dryer: maximum 104°F to 140°F.


    Bath can be ironed, albeit at low to medium temperatures.

    How to care for your coverlet ?

    To properly care for your comforter, you must meticulously follow the washing and drying instructions of the manufacturer. Some fabrics are delicate and cannot be washed in a machine.


    Most comforters have quite a bit of padding, which makes household washing machines unsuitable. You should therefore check the care instructions before purchasing a comforter. To facilitate the care of your comforter, make sure it can be washed in a machine and follow the manufacturer's care instructions (type of detergent to use, washing machine cycle, etc.).
