Facts about washing Tencel covers

Caring for your Tencel cover is crucial to maximize the life and performance of your mattress and pillow cover. In this blog we delve into the facts about washing Tencel products correctly and we help clear up some common misunderstandings.

What is Tencel and why is maintenance important?

Tencel, made from wood pulp from sustainably managed forests, is known for its environmental friendliness and comfort. This material is not only soft, breathable and moisture-regulating, but also hypoallergenic, making it ideal for mattresses and pillows. Good maintenance is essential to maintain these properties and protect the integrity of the fibers.

Common misunderstandings about washing Tencel covers

A common misunderstanding is that Tencel covers can be washed at high temperatures. Competitors sometimes claim that these can be washed up to 60 degrees Celsius, which is incorrect and can lead to material damage such as shrinkage and loss of softness.

Facts about washing Tencel covers

Despite Tencel’s toughness and durability, it is important to follow certain washing practices to maximize the life of your covers and maintain their quality. Below we discuss the correct washing temperature and the use of suitable detergents, which are essential for the maintenance of Tencel products.

Correct washing temperature:

Tencel covers are best washed at temperatures between 30 and 40 degrees Celsius. This temperature helps to protect the fibers and ensures that your Tencel products retain their color and structure.

Use of detergents:

When washing Tencel, it is advisable to use mild detergents that are free of harsh chemicals and bleaches. This softness ensures that the fibers are not damaged and that the unique properties of Tencel, such as its softness and color fastness, are retained.

Drying Tencel covers:

It is best to let Tencel covers air dry. Machine drying can lead to shrinkage and should therefore be avoided. If necessary, use the lowest heat setting on your dryer.

Purotex as an alternative to washing at 60 degrees

For those concerned about hygiene and allergies, a cover with Purotex is a good option. Purotex uses natural probiotics that reduce allergens and bacteria, promoting a safe and clean sleeping environment without the need for high washing temperatures.


Proper care of your Tencel covers not only extends their lifespan, but also ensures that you can continue to enjoy the unique comfort that Tencel offers. Follow these guidelines to keep your Tencel products in optimal condition and support sustainable practices that are good for both our health and the environment.

What is the best way to remove stains from my Tencel cover?

To remove stains from Tencel, it is important to act quickly without damaging the fabric. Gently blot the stain with a mixture of cold water and mild detergent. Avoid scrubbing the fabric as this can damage the Tencel fibers. For stubborn stains, consider using a stain remover that is suitable for delicate fabrics. Always test on an inconspicuous area first to ensure it will not damage the fabric.

Can I wash my Tencel cover in the washing machine?

Yes, Tencel covers are safe to machine wash, but it is important to choose the right settings to maintain the quality of the fabric. Use a mild detergent and set the washing machine to a gentle cycle with cold or lukewarm water. It is advisable to wash Tencel separately or with similarly delicate fabrics to minimize friction and stress on the fibers. Make sure you follow the washing instructions specific to your Tencel product, as recommended by the manufacturer.
