Product Care Guide

Sheets, Throw, & Recovery Bag Care

Wash in warm water. Set cycle to ‘gentle’. Use only half the amount of detergent stated on the detergent label. DO NOT pour detergent directly on the sheet. Let detergent dissolve in water first, or put detergent in designated machine dispenser, and then place sheet in machine. Hang Dry or Tumble dry on ‘low’ or ‘no heat’ setting. Remove sheet from dryer promptly. Fold to minimize wrinkles. Optional: iron on ‘low heat.’

DO NOT USE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS when washing your sheet. They contain chemicals that can destroy/degrade conductivity of the silver threads:

  • NO liquid fabric softeners
  • NO chlorine bleach
  • NO dryer sheets
  • NO detergent containing bleach
  • NO dry cleaning

DO NOT apply creams, oils, lotions before bedtime to any area of the your skin that will come in contact with the sheet.

The sheet is anti-bacterial and anti-microbial. Wash weekly or bi-weekly to remove natural body oils and maintain sheet in good working condition.

Mat & Auto Seat Pads Care

Use water and any mild soap to periodically clean mat.

Body Bands Care

Do not use the bands on parts of your body where you have recently applied any creams and lotions, as these substances can reduce conductivity and oxidize silver fibers.

Wash with warm water. Air dry.

    I use Eco Max laundry wash. The ingredients list says this; water,plant based surfactants, food grade sodium citrate water softening agent, food grade cellulose thickener from plants, food grade potassium sorbate preservative, food grade citric acid and therapeutic grade lavender essential oil. I’m not sure if this ok to use because it says not to use liquid fabric softener or any oils. I also like to put tea tree oil in the wash sometimes, is that ok? If neither is ok could someone please recommend what would be safe? Thanks.

    Hi Elaine,

    We personally have been using a brand called ECOS (available at Costco and Canadian Tire) that has coconut oil in it, and we’ve not had any issues with our sheet (which is about 2 years old now).. and so, I would imagine that Eco Max should work well! Perhaps avoid the tea tree oil when washing the earthing sheet.

    • Emily

      Do you use any of the ECOS brands because I use that brand but the scented kind is there scented because I read on my instructions that i should not use a brand with oil/ essential oils.

      • EarthingCanada

        Hi Emily,

        We have used ECOS in the past without any problems. We do want to shy away from using Oils in their natural form. In the ECOS Laundry detergents, they use the ingredient “coconut-based surfactant” which is far from coconut oil in its pure form. Do shy away if the ingredient says pure “coconut oil” or “palm oil”. Hope that helps!

    I am wondering if it is OK to wash the earthing sheet with a magnetic laundry system? It uses 2 strong magnets to clean laundry without soap.

    I received an earthing sheet as a Christmas gift and discovered after the 4th time being laundered that it was placed inside a hot dryer, not a cool one. Can you describe what harm may have been done?

    • EarthingCanada

      Hi there,
      It should not be a problem that it was laundered a few times in a hot dryer. We do recommend a low heat as this will help the sheet last longer, and a few times on “hot” will not have a big impact on its lifespan.

    I use white vinegar as a rinse. Also I purchase soap nuts that are only dried berry shells…are these okay?

    • EarthingCanada

      Hi Dorothy
      Vinegar will not harm the sheet in any way, but we do not recommend using the soap nuts with the Earthing products. We have found that they are too harsh. Hope that helps!

    http://www.alkalizeforhealth.net/Learthing.htm This website shows you how to get rid of the tarnish on your sheet if you have ruined it with oils etc , its brilliant and the video from youtube shows how the salt / baking soda bath with an aluminum foil sheet works its brilliant !!!

  • Kurt Harlan

    I accidentally threw my sheet in with some other laundry for the first time and put some fabric softener in as well. Have I ruined the sheet?

    • EarthingCanada

      Hi Kurt,
      Using the fabric softener once should be fine, but we do recommend now washing your Earthing sheet one time in hot water to remove any residue.

  • Jordana Meazza

    Hi, I had my earthing fitting sheet for a year now and had no idea about temperature and fabric softners, so overthis year I washed it with the regular sheets with 70 degrees celsius and fabric sofner at the end. Now is verry stiff to sleep on, is not as confortable as it was at the beginning. Is there anything I can do do make it softer again without softner? Thanks!

    • EarthingCanada

      Hi Jordana,
      It is recommended that Earthing sheets be washed in warm water and no fabric softener. It is quite possible that the silver in the sheets is no longer conductive if fabric softener and hot water was used. We recommend testing your sheet with a Continuity Tester. If you find the sheet is no longer conductive you can either replace it or try a restoration process. If you would like the restoration steps please email us at info@earthingcanada.ca and we would would be happy to send them to you!

    I use Eco Max laundry wash. The ingredients list says this; water,plant based surfactants, food grade sodium citrate water softening agent, food grade cellulose thickener from plants, food grade potassium sorbate preservative, food grade citric acid and therapeutic grade lavender essential oil. Is this okay?

    • EarthingCanada

      Hi Philip, We believe that ECOS may have changed their product slightly since we first started recommending it. The front label says that it contains fabric softener. As a result, we no longer recommend using this to wash your Earthing sheets.
