  • How to Organize Your Linen Closet

    It’s that time of year again – it’s time to start spring cleaning. As such, it’s probably the one time of year where you actually take the time to organize your linen closet. It has been spirally into a giant ball of fabric for months and you’re probably dreading even opening the door.

    To help you out of this mess, here are 6 tips from Cozy Earth on how to organize your linen closet so it will stay organized all year long.

    Purge, Purge, Purge

    Linen closets tend to be located in small niches wherever the architect could conveniently fit them into the layout of the house. As a result, they’re rarely built to actually accommodate a full linen set. That’s why you really need to purge your linen closet and only keep the items that you need and love.

    So, go ahead and toss your old, holy sheets! You don’t need them anymore! After finally donating or giving away all your junk, you might even be able to reward yourself with a beautiful new set of organic sheets. ;)

    Think Outside the Closet

    Additionally, you don’t need to put all your linens in your specially designated linen closet. Be creative and keep harder to store items in the rooms where they are actually used. For instance, have a spot in each bedroom closet for extra pillows rather than shoving them into your teeny tiny linen closet. Store your guest sheets and bedding in the guest room. Keep your kids extra blankets in a bin under their bed.

    Add Shelf Dividers

    One of the biggest problems with linen closets is that everything tends to tip over. Your sheets end up tangled up together and your beautiful silk comforter is a crumpled heap on the top shelf.

    To avoid this problem, add shelf divers to create little cubby holes for all your linens. This will infinitely increase the stability of your linen closet, which will keep it more organized in the long run.

    Label Everything

    Once you have a spot for all your linens, label each shelf accordingly. That way no matter who ends up putting the laundry away, they will know exactly where everything goes. Plus, you won’t have to try to remember your organizational system when next year’s spring cleaning rolls around – You’ll already have it laid out!

    Use Space Bags

    Store the items that you rarely use or only use seasonally in space bags in the back or top of your closet. Space bags are phenomenal at maximizing your space and keeping your linens fresh. It’s a fairly well-known tip, but still worth mentioning.

    Keep Kids Linens Down Low

    This last tip is for those of you who have kids. Use gravity to your advantage and keep the items your children are most likely to pull out on the bottom shelf. Then, keep the linens they’ll never think to touch (like their bedroom sheets) on the higher selves that are at adult eye level. That way, when they go to grab their favorite blanket, they won’t take your entire linen closet down with it.

  • Caring for Your Bamboo Comforter

    Are you thinking about investing in a luxurious bamboo comforter, but aren’t sure you’re ready to jump into that pile of plush bedding quite yet? How do you wash bamboo bedding anyway?

    Don’t worry – if you’re asking these questions, you’re not alone. Bamboo has just barely broken into the bedding world and most people don’t know how to care for it. So, how do you take care of your premium bamboo comforter? Well, here are some quick and practical tips on how to care for and clean bamboo.

    Naturally Freshen

    First, you should always use a bamboo duvet cover. If you use a duvet cover, you will almost never need to need to wash your beautiful comforter. The most you probably need to do is air it out every 3-5 months.

    To air out your comforter, hang it in mild to moderate sunlight for 1-3 hours. The sun will dry out any body oils and moisture your bedding may have soaked up. By drying out these oils, the sun naturally refreshes your comforter without damaging it, reviving its soft, plush texture and making it feel brand-new.

    Spot Clean

    While only airing out your comforter every few months is the ideal situation, we all know life happens. For instance, imagine your gorgeous comforter has just arrived in the mail. You planned on buying that duvet cover, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Are you really going to wait for a duvet cover when your soft, luxurious new comforter is just begging for you to curl up in it?

    Of course not! So you grab a book and just a little cup of your favorite drink. Then, even though you’re trying to be careful, you spill something on your fluffy white bedding. Oh no! Have you just ruined your brand-new bedspread? No – in most cases you can spot clean it.

    To spot clean your comforter:

    • Soak a cloth in warm, soapy water
    • Wring the cloth out to remove almost all of the water
    • Gently blot the stain
    • Lay out to air dry
    • Repeat as necessary

    If you need to wash your entire bedspread, then put your comforter in the washing machine while the stain is still damp and follow the instructions below.

    Machine Wash

    Let’s move onto machine washing your comforter. Whether it’s silk, down, or cotton, almost all comforters are extremely difficult to deep clean. Usually, you can only spot clean or dry clean them and who really wants to drag their poofy comforter to the dry cleaners?

    Well, one of the biggest perks of bamboo is that you can wash it at home! To clean your cozy comforter in your washing machine and dryer:

    • Spot clean any obvious stains
    • Wash in cold water (it’s better for the environment)
    • Only use the rinse cycle (no spin cycle)
    • Dry on delicate or hang dry

    See it’s that easy! If you want to discover more about the benefits of bamboo bedding, read Why Bamboo Comforters Are the Best.

    Dry Clean

    While no one wants to take their comforter to the dry cleaners, dry cleaning will always be the best way to protect and extend the life of your bedding. After all, the purpose of dry cleaning is to protect fabrics from the viscous spin cycles of washing machines and dryers. So, how do you find a high-quality, professional dry cleaner that will care for your bedding like it is their own?

    • First, look for reviews online. Previous customers are your best source of information because they’ve already gone to the trouble of trying the dry cleaner for you.
    • Once you’ve narrowed down your options, call or visit the business in person. How do they treat their customers on a day-to-day basis? Do they take the time to ask you questions so they know how best to clean your items?
    • Finally, ask the dry cleaner a few important questions. What kind of cleaning solvent do they use? For example, is their cleaning solvent eco-friendly? What is their policy on lost on damaged items? How much experience do they have cleaning bedding? A good dryer cleaner should be able to confidently answer these questions and any other ones you might have.

    Now you know how to naturally freshen, spot clean, machine wash, and find a good dryer cleaner for your bamboo bedding. The only step left is to find the comforter of your dreams! To find your perfectly plush comforter, check out Cozy Earth’s bamboo comforter or dual bamboo comforter today!
