Pajama Care

Posted by LazyOne on 8th May 2024

Have a pair of LazyOne pajamas (or two, or three!), but aren’t sure how to care for them? Well, it’s your lucky day, because we're diving into the world of cotton pajama care! Whether you're snuggled up in our classic cotton PJs or sporting our festive holiday jammies, we've got the lowdown on how to keep them looking and feeling their best. Let’s take a look at some tips for basic pajama care!

Basic Cotton Pajama Care and Cleaning

To care for your pajamas, you’ll want to start by reading the label or care tag. Almost all pajamas should have these trusty instructions on them, so if you follow along, you really can’t go wrong! But if your label has worn off, you don’t have to worry. Most LazyOne pajamas are made of 100% combed cotton, and caring for cotton pajamas is as easy as pie (or should we say, as easy as falling asleep in them!).

Start by turning your pajamas inside out before tossing them in the washing machine. This simple step helps preserve those vibrant colors and keeps any decorative details looking fresh. Wash on a gentle cycle with cold water and mild detergent to keep your PJs in tip-top shape. Once they're clean, tumble dry on low heat or, even better, let them air dry for that extra softness we all love. It’s also important that you avoid using bleach on your favorite LazyOne pajamas! While your LazyOne pajamas are infusion printed and resist normal fading, the use of bleach will fade the colors and weaken the fabric’s durability over time.

We also recommend wearing your pajamas more than once to save on washes. Usually, you aren’t getting dirty if you’re only wearing your PJs to sleep, so you should be okay to wash them after a couple of wears. Make sure to keep a collection of PJs on standby too! If you keep enough pajamas on hand, you can easily rotate them out and reduce wear on all the different sets. Best of all, there is truly a wide range of styles for jammies to show off your many sides and personality. This is reason enough to add extra jammies to the rotation!

Pajama Care FAQs

1. How often should kids’ pajamas be washed? We know kids can get pretty messy (we've been there!), so it's a good idea to wash their pajamas after 1-2 wears to keep things fresh and clean. If your kiddos are cleaner than most, then you might not have to wash their jammies as often.

2. Should you wash pajamas inside out? Absolutely! Turning your pajamas inside out before washing helps protect delicate fabrics and keeps any embellishments or prints looking sharp.

3. How do you wash pajama pants? Treating your pajama pants with TLC is a breeze! Simply follow the care instructions on the label and wash them like you would any other garment. For example, our men’s PJ pants are made of 100% combed cotton, so they can be washed with cold water on a gentle cycle and tumble-dried on low heat. 

Best Ways to Store Seasonal and Holiday Pajamas

When it's time to say goodbye to those matching holiday pajamas and Christmas PJs until next year, proper storage is key to keeping them in the best condition. We recommend investing in storage bins or vacuum-sealed bags to protect your seasonal PJs from dust, moisture, and pesky critters. Make sure they're completely dry before stashing them away to prevent any funky odors or mildew from developing. And don't forget to label those bins for easy access when the holiday spirit strikes again!

Taking good care of your LazyOne pajamas helps make sure that every bedtime feels like a dream come true. By following these simple steps for cleaning, storing, and maintaining your favorite sleepwear, you can prolong their softness, preserve their vibrant colors, and keep them looking as adorable as the day you brought them home. So snuggle up, relax, and enjoy the cozy comfort of your PJs as much as you want now that you've got the inside scoop on how to keep them in tip-top shape!
