Do you have a routine for keeping your bed linen fresh? I mean aside from washing your sheets and blankets.
I’d like to say that I faithfully launder my blankets every Friday as stated on my homekeeping schedule, however I have not been able to keep up this task consistently.
I still have young children at home who cannot wash their own bed linen and remake the beds after wards. As a result I am usually left to do the job myself and I have not mastered it.
During the summer this task is a bit easier to keep up with, because we dress the beds with far less linen. During the the winter months this becomes a monumental task. If I were to wash the linens weekly by the time I was done I would have washed nine pillow cases, eight blankets, four top sheets and four fitted sheets. is All this and I haven’t even begun the drying process.
What I’ve decided to do instead is alternate bedding laundering weeks. I’ve scheduled one bed per Friday. This makes linen washing easier, but I missed that freshly laundered scent and decided to come up with a way to keep the bed fresh between washes.
Fresh Linen Tip:
- When you get out of bed, pull the sheets and blanket to the bottom of the bed.
- Dust the bed with baby powder and/or linen spray (I use cherry blossom body spray from the dollar store).
- Allow linen to air out while you have breakfast, brush teeth, etc.
- When you are ready, make your bed as usual.
