How to Wash Anthropologie Bedding

If you’re a fan of Anthropologie bedding, this blog is for you. The Anthropologie bedding collection layers colors, patterns, and textures to create beautiful looks that are exquisite to see and touch. This article explains how to wash your Anthropologie bedding to keep it looking and feeling gorgeous.

Anthropologie Bedding: Luxe, Bohemian Style that Endures

In the worlds of fashion, accessories, and home decor, the Anthropologie design ethos is unique. Anthropologie seamlessly blends bohemian romance with timeless elegance, drawing inspiration from vintage aesthetics and global influences for a carefree, sophisticated look. The harmonious fusion of eclectic patterns, rich textures, and chic silhouettes makes Anthropologie products distinctive and beloved.

These principles translate beautifully to Anthropologie bedding, where intricate embroidery, handcrafted details, and a diverse palette converge to create a sense of opulence and comfort. The brand's commitment to celebrating individuality is evident in every stitch and fabric choice, fostering a unique, curated feel that transforms any bedroom into a sanctuary of personal style.

Many of your Anthropologie bedding pieces can be safely and successfully washed at home (or in a larger commercial machine). Heritage Park Laundry Essentials is here with everything you need to know to wash and care for your Anthropologie sheets, quilts., and bedding to preserve their artful and enduring beauty/

Anthropologie Bedding Requires a Tailored Laundry Routine

Anthropologie bedding is a masterpiece of color, pattern, and texture that showcases various fabrics. That’s why you should tailor your Anthropologie bedding care routine to specific protocols based on fabric and use. Your sheets should be washed at regular intervals of a week or two, while duvet covers should be able to go a month or more between washes. Quilts and blankets can be washed every three to six months; wash these more often if you’re highly susceptible to allergies or reside in a home that is prone to dust. Decorative pillows and throw blankets should be washed as needed. Always launder your bedding whenever there is a stain or spill (check out our helpful stain removal guide ).

No matter what you are washing, make sure to read and follow the guidelines on the care label (this is essential for delicate fabrics or anything with embellishment, beading, or other details).

Choose the Right Detergent for Washing Your Anthropologie Bedding

Your first step in washing your Anthropologie bedding is to choose the right detergent. Heritage Park All-Purpose Laundry Detergent  is made to effectively clean and care for fine fabric like cotton sheets, linen sheets, bamboo, and blended fabrics. It is a pH-neutral mild detergent made with natural, plant-based ingredients that protect the integrity of fine fabric. At the same time, it contains a proprietary blend of natural cleaning enzymes that break down and remove dirt, sweat, stain and odors from bedding without the use of harsh chemicals. The fragrance-free variety is also hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested ( learn more about hypoallergenic detergent here ). If you prefer a subtle scent to your detergent, choose one of our lightly fragranced options, including Spring Magnolia, Lavender Mist, or Shore Breeze.

Supplies You’ll Need to Wash Your Anthropologie Bedding

Get ready to wash your Anthropologie bedding with the following supplies: 

  • A gentle detergent like Heritage Park All-Purpose Laundry Detergent in Fragrance-Free/Hypoallergenic or one of our lightly scented formulas.
  • A washing machine and dryer.
  • For quilts or blankets, a large front-loading machine (or laundromat).
  • Mesh laundry bags (optional for shams).
  • Enzyme stain remover, or a spray bottle for making your own stain treatment with a 1:1 ratio of Heritage Park All-Purpose Detergent and water.
  • Wool dryer balls


Steps to Machine Wash Your Anthropologie Sheets, Duvet Cover and Shams

Follow these washing instructions to take the very best care of your sheet set and duvet cover and shams, including Anthropologie Organic Sateen Printed Sheets, Anthropologie Organic Percale Printed Sheets, the Anthropologie Ruffled Organic Spa Sateen Duvet Cover, and the Anthropologie Washed Linen Duvet Covers and Shams.

Step 1: Read the Care Instructions

Read the care label before beginning the washing process. Check out our helpful guide to deciphering laundry symbols

Step 2: Pretreat and Presoak Stains Immediately

Pre-treat or pre-soak any sweat or other stains as soon as possible. We recommend using an enzyme stain remover or making a solution of a 1:1 ratio of Heritage Park All Purpose Laundry Detergent and water in a spray bottle. You can also pre-treat stains with a small amount of All-Purpose Detergent directly applied to the area.

Step 3: Wash Your Sheets and Duvet Covers in a Dedicated Load

Always wash your Anthropologie sheets or duvet cover/shams in a dedicated load sorted by color and weight. Keep sets together and launder shams whenever you wash your duvet cover to maintain color consistency and even wear. 

Step 4: Put Your Shams in a Mesh Laundry Bag

This isn’t strictly necessary, but using a large mesh laundry bag for your pillow shams will protect these smaller pieces from getting snagged in the machine or tangled among larger items.

Step 5:  Use A Normal Cycle and Cool to Lukewarm Water

As a general rule, the care labels on Anthropologie sheets recommend cold water. While we respect these guidelines for preserving color in fabric, we typically recommend using warm water for bedding that goes next to your skin (like sheets). Heritage Park All-Purpose laundry detergent will work in any temperature water. Check out our guide to laundry machine cycles and settings here .

Step 6: Never Use Bleach, Fabric Softener, and Dryer Sheets

These products are totally unnecessary and can seriously damage your bedding. Learn more about why you should skip the fabric softener and dryer sheets.

Step 7: Tumble Dry with Wool Dryer Balls

Tumble dry your sheets on low heat and add a set of natural wool dryer balls . These will speed the drying process and add softness

Washing Your Anthropologie Quilts

The instructions for washing your quilts, including our favorite Anthropologie Athena Plush Quilt and companion shams, are the same as for sheets with one exception: bulky items like a quilt or comforter should ALWAYS be washed in a front-loading machine or a top loader without an agitator. We also don’t recommend washing anything larger than a twin quilt in a front-loading machine at home. Our best advice is to make a trip to your local laundromat and avail yourself of a high-capacity front loader for this task. And be sure to use wool dryer balls to keep your quilt soft and fluffy and speed drying time.

Washing Anthropologie Decorative Pillows and Throw Blankets

Washing your Anthropologie decorative pillows and throw blankets is very product-specific. This is why we always suggest following the care guidelines. For example, almost all Anthropologie throw blanket styles, even those made of polyester like the very popular Sophie Faux Fur Throw Blanket require dry cleaning. However, some decorative throw pillow covers such as the Adelina Velvet Pillow , can be washed. We recommend washing these on a delicate or gentle cycle in a mesh laundry bag to protect the pillow cover and air drying to prevent shrinking.
