Slide the round tab forward to release the strap
The tabs will loosen up slightly after a few uses
Place fabric near the corner of sheet completely over the round tab, then push the fabric-covered tab up through the hole in the base
Slide the fabric-covered tab down into the channel
Give the sheet a tug to make sure it is secured. Repeat to attach all four corners of sheet to one Wad-Free.
With a Wad-Free® on each sheet in the load, wash and dry as usual.
How it Works
Wad-Free® is simple and easy to use!
Wad-Free for Bed Sheets attaches quickly and easily to the four corners of your sheets before you put them in the washing machine, where your load will come out cleaner and the washer won't go off-balance. Then you transfer everything to the dryer where everything dries fast and fluffy. After the load is finished, you remove the Wad-Free and store it for next time. Always follow fabric care instructions. Illustrated instructions are included in the package. Watch our videos below, and scroll down for tips. Check our Troubleshooting page if you are having problems getting Wad-Free to work for you.
Tips and Tricks
For best results, select the appliance settings that match your fabric care instructions. Most require:
- Gentle/Delicates or Normal cycle
- Cold or Warm water
- Low or Medium spin speed
- Low or Warm dryer
A high spin speed is not recommended when using Wad-Free for Bed Sheets.
When you load your appliances, be sure to do so according to the manufacturer's specifications, and also so that things start the cycle separately to begin with. Try picking each sheet up by the Wad-Free so that it resembles a parachute as you load them one at a time into your appliances. For top-loading washers, place the sheet with the Wad-Free on the top of the load.
Tip #1 Try attaching the Wad-Free as you strip the bed; it is just easier to find the corners that way.
Tip #2 You don't have to attach the Wad-Free exactly at the corners. If your sheet has a seam or trim, just attach it a few inches away.
Tip #3 Some fitted sheets work better when the inside seams are attached 3-16" up from the edge of the sheet instead of at the corners. You can even experiment and place it up to 24” from the edge to find what works best for your particular sheets. See the Troubleshooting page for details.
Tip #4 You'll find the drying time decreases significantly. Some dryers have programmed settings that anticipate a much longer drying time, but if you check early, the load might already be dry. In fact, since dry sheets weigh less than wet sheets, if you let the dryer run too long when everything is in a dry state, the sheets might roll up; if this happens, you'll know next time to shorten the dry time.
Tip #5 In some washers the tabs may open up or dislodge in a high spin cycle; if this happens, simply lower the spin speed the next time. Making sure the sheet is secure in the channel prior to the wash often eliminates the problem. If a tab comes out of the base, reinsert it from the bottom, one pointy wing at a time. If you lose a tab, they are replaceable.
Tip #6 The tab will leave a small dimple on the sheet. Most of these won't be visible, but if this bothers you, remove the Wad-Free a few minutes before the sheets are dry or iron them out.
Tip #7 If desired, the Wad-Free can be left attached to one bottom corner, tucking it in as you make the bed. Leaving it attached to a corner means you won't have to go looking for it on your next laundry day.
Tip #8 The tabs of the Wad-Free are replaceable should they ever wear out. Please contact us for replacement parts.
Bonus Feature The Wad-Free makes it faster and easier to fold your sheets (or put them back on the bed) because all the corners are right there for you!
Please follow the fabric care instructions of your sheets. Most sheets require the "Gentle/Delicates" or "Normal" setting using cold or warm water, no bleach or fabric softener, and a low or normal dry cycle, which might not be compatible with the Bedding, Bulky, Sanitize, Allergen, or other settings on your appliances. Wad-Free is designed to be used in conjunction with the fabric care instructions of your sheets.
Wad-Free is not recommended for use with bamboo, eucalyptus, or rayon sheets which (unlike cotton) are very weak when wet, agitated, or dried, thus require extra gentle care. Not recommended for weakened, damaged sheets.See our Troubleshooting page if you are having trouble using your Wad-Free.
