Care Guide

Thank you for choosing Organic Nest. Our dedication to sustainability and your well-being does not conclude with your purchase. To guarantee the durability and peak performance of your products, please adhere to this comprehensive care guide:

Wash before use:

  • Before using your new organic cotton sheets or towels, it’s essential to wash them first. This will help remove any residue left from the manufacturing process and will ensure that they are clean and fresh for use.

Regular Washing:

  • Organic cotton is more delicate than conventional cotton and can shrink if washed in hot water. Always wash your organic cotton products in cold water to preserve their quality and colour.

  • When washing your organic cotton bedding and bath essentials, use a gentle, plant-based detergent. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners as they can damage the fibres and reduce the life of your sheets & towels.

  • Wash dark and light-coloured items separately to prevent colour bleeding.

  • To ensure thorough cleaning and prevent excessive wear, avoid overloading your washing machine.


  • Treat stains promptly with a natural stain remover or creating a solution of vinegar and laundry detergent. Apply this mixture to the stain, allowing it to sit for a minimum of 30 minutes before proceeding with laundering.

  • Avoid using bleach, as it can damage the organic fibres and harm the environment.


  • Preferably line dry your bedding & bath essentials to maintain its integrity. Sunlight can act as a natural disinfectant and brighten the colours.

  • If using a dryer, use a low heat setting to prevent shrinkage. Remove the items promptly to avoid over-drying as it can cause them to become stiff and lose their softness.


  • Your bedsheets or quilt covers may exhibit some wrinkles. You have the option to embrace their natural, slightly wrinkled appearance or, if preferred, iron them on a low heat setting when the fabric is slightly damp.


  • Store your bedding & bath essentials in a cool, dry & well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight to prevent musty odours, and fabric discoloration.


  • If your organic cotton towels or sheets start to lose their softness, try adding a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle when washing. This will help remove any detergent buildup and restore their natural softness.

Environmental Impact:

  • By choosing GOTS certified organic products, you are already making an eco-conscious choice. Continue to minimize your impact by conserving water and energy during washing and drying.

Repurpose or Recycle:

  • When it's time to replace your bedding or bath products, consider repurposing them as cleaning rags or donating them to a textile recycling program.

    Always read and follow the care instructions on the product label.
