Here’s how I wash my son’s Beddy’s bedding to keep the colors vibrant and the fabric from shrinking using this easy process and simple cleaning supplies.
I had been eyeing Beddy’s bedding for a long time for my son’s bedroom. Honestly the thing that held me back that whole time was the concern how to wash the bedding. I was worried about how it would hold up in the washer since both the top and bottom have zippers, and I also wasn’t sure about the longevity of the materials since normal comforters don’t get washed as often as bed sheets.
After owning a Beddy’s bedding set for six months, it’s safe to say that my washing worries were unwarranted. (Whew that’s a tongue twister! Say that five times fast!) The bedding is actually really easy to wash and still looks brand new. So if washing is your main concern about purchasing a set for your own kid’s room, here is my exact process to launder Beddy’s bedding properly and efficiently.

Washing Beddy’s Bedding Step-By-Step
Start by removing the top piece of the Beddy’s bedding from the bed. Put the top piece in your washing machine with no other items and no fabric softener. Fabric softener can leave a residue on the zipper, and the fabric is already super soft without it. Add a gentle clear detergent to your dispenser and wash on a normal cycle in cold water with medium spin.
When the wash cycle is complete, move the top piece of Beddy’s bedding to the dryer immediately to prevent color transfer. Unlike regular bedding, Beddy’s is a sheet and comforter combined. Those two materials have different dyes and can transfer onto each other if they’re sitting wet too long.
Dry the top piece on low heat with no dryer sheet for as long as needed. My dryer takes about 75 minutes to dry the top piece on low heat and I have a full-size bedding set.
Once your dryer is going, you can add the bottom piece of the Beddy’s bedding set to the washing machine. This piece is a little less bulky, so you can add the pillow cases and pillow shams in with it. Use the same process as before; wash in cold water on medium spin with gentle clear detergent and no fabric softener. (I use All Free And Clear)
When the top piece is completely dry, remove it from the dryer and lay flat on the bed. Use your hands to smooth it out and just let it hang out there while the bottom piece is in the dryer. By laying it flat while it’s still warm, you won’t have to steam out any wrinkles and the zipper will stay straight and not get kinks in it.
Once the bottom piece is dry, put it on the bed immediately and zip the top piece onto it fully. That sets the zipper nice and straight again since it’s still warm.
The zippers can get super loud in the dryer, and since it takes about three hours from start to finish to wash the whole bedding set, that’s a lot of clanking around. To reduce the noise, cut up an old sock into strips and wrap them around the zipper pull. Rubber band it in place and wash as usual. No more clanking!
How Often To Wash Beddy’s Bedding
I really prefer to wash all our of bed linens once a week, but Beddy’s bedding isn’t recommended to be washed that often. So for my son’s Beddy’s set, I wash it every 2-3 weeks. My son is 14, so in order to keep it lasting longer between washes, he takes his showers at night before bed and makes up his bed as soon as he wakes up.
Their website recommends not buying Beddy’s for children who are still practicing potty training, and I agree with that recommendation. If you have a younger child, it’s best to wait until they no longer have accidents before investing in Beddy’s bedding.
