Although you don’t have to wash them often, you will have to care them day-to-day. The maintenance to your satin water bed sheets is very important.
If you are planning on investing in king size silk sheets for quite a while then you have to be prepared to deal with the maintenance. Aside from the day-to-day caring of it in terms of kids and pets, you will have to think about cleaning. You can’t put white satin sheets in the washing machine because that will damage the fibres. The same will happen if you use detergents that are too strong as well as bleach. Instead you could use a fabric softener.
P.S.Iron the sateen sheet sets at minimum temperature settings. Hot iron will ruin the fabric immediately and then there is no cure of this.
