4. Make sure your laundry facility doesnt use harsh chemicals when washing your sheets.
Be especially careful that they dont use any product with chlorine. Most companies dont, but sometimes they will, said Jon Bryant, sales director of hospitality at Sferra. Be sure your laundry uses a good formula.
5. Keep enough linens in stock.
Ideally, have three sets on hand for every bed. While one is in use, one can be in the laundry and one can be in storage. This reduces the number of times a sheet needs to be washed, Bryant said, which prolongs its life.
6. Dont fall for the thread count trick.
1,000- or 1,200- thread counts are twisted yarns and multiple-pick insertions, said Chris Gowdy, VP of Liddell. It needs to be a basic single-pick construction for a balanced weave. A single-pick sheet usually has a tighter weave and is softermaking it a win-win in terms of guest satisfaction and return on investment.
7. Pay attention to the quality of the fabric yarns.
Super-fine yarns may look nice and have an attractive sheen, but they wont work well in a commercial washing machine and iron.
8. Find small ways to bring pops of color into the bedding.
Festoon lines are good to bring color into rooms, Gowdy said. This is done on duvet covers, pillowcases and shams.
