Ponti Bedding Washing Instructions - Care Guide


Hi Ponti Home family! We have created this blog to share with you the best way to wash your beautiful items without having the risk of shrinkage and piling. Given the high sensitivity of the finishing of the fabrics to give you the smooth silky feel, please take time to read the instructions below to guarantee a long life for your beautiful products that can stay with you for years! 

  1. Machine Washing: Due to the intimate usage of bed linens, it is recommended that household linens be washed before use. Sort your household linen by fiber (cotton, linen, silk, wool), color (whites, light colors, dark colors), and type of item (sheets, towels, tablecloths). Do not include items made of synthetic fibers. Also, do not include garments with components that could damage fabrics (zippers, hooks, metals). Make sure the items are unfolded when loading the machine.
    1. For bed linens, wash in warm water with mild, liquid biodegradable detergent. 
    2. For bath items, machine wash on medium setting.
    3. For table linen, wash in cold water with mild, liquid biodegradable detergent. 

Please view product-specific care instructions on the product label. Ponti Home advises that if you feel that you need heat wash at maximum 60 degrees.

Delicate items with lace and embroidery should be enclosed in a large, thin mesh bag. Pillowcases and duvet covers should be washed inside out to protect the lace. When the wash cycle is completed, remove the laundry immediately and shake it to minimize wrinkles.
Avoid using high heat or maximum temperatures.

  1. Detergent Use: Scented Delicate Detergent or a mild liquid biodegradable detergent without added bleach or whiteners. Avoid powdered detergent or detergents containing alkali and make sure the detergent is fully dissolved before the water touches the fabric. The amount of detergent depends on how soiled the laundry is and on the hardness of the water.
  2. Drying: When machine drying, never dry at high temperatures. If your dryer is adjustable, For bed linens use the low fan and spin speed., it is important to remove from dryer before completely dry, gently lay flat on ironing board then iron. For line drying, open each item and shake before hanging. Do not place colored articles in direct sunlight - the sun makes whites seem shinier, but extended exposure may cause yellowing. Do not hang wool and delicate items vertically; lay flat on drying rack to prevent overstretching. Try not to dry longer than necessary.
  3. Ironing: Use a steam iron on a warm setting for cotton; use a warm setting for linen and a water spritzer if needed. Avoid using spray starch and choose the proper low temperature, as indicated by the symbols on the care label: medium for cotton and linen, low for silk and wool.

Avoiding the above instructions could deteriorate your bedding fabrics which can result in fabric pilling and the loss of the soft silky sateen feel.
