How it Works
Wad-Free® is simple and easy to use! Video, photos, and illustrations are below, and check out our TikTok for more!
Attach the four tabs of Wad-Free to the four corners of your sheet before putting them in the washing machine, where your load will come out cleaner and the washer won’t go off-balance. Then transfer everything to the dryer where the load dries fast and fluffy. After the load is finished, remove the Wad-Free and store it for next time. Check our Troubleshooting page if you are having problems getting Wad-Free to work for you.
Don’t damage your sheets! Please select the appliance settings that match your fabric care instructions. A high spin speed is not to be used when using Wad-Free for Bed Sheets. Select:
• Gentle/Delicates or Normal cycle (using a low or medium spin speed. In some washers you may have to manually dial down the spin speed if the default is high spin.)
• Cold or Warm water
• Low or Medium spin speed
• Low or Warm dryer
A high spin speed is not to be used when using Wad-Free for Bed Sheets.
Tips and Tricks
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 easier to manage and 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 – including those with thick elastic bands, full elastic, and deep pockets – work better when the corner seams are attached 12-24" up from the edge of the sheet instead of at the elastic edge. See the Troubleshooting page for a video and details of this alternate attachment location.
Tip #4 You'll find the drying time decreases significantly. In fact, if you let the dryer run too long when everything is in a dry state, the sheets might roll up; if this happens, shorten the dry time next time.
Tip #5 If the tabs open up or dislodge, lower the spin speed. 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. The tabs are replaceable should they ever wear out or get lost. Please contact us for replacement parts.
Tip #6 The tab will leave a small dimple on the sheet. Most won't be visible, but if it bothers you, remove the Wad-Free a few minutes before the sheets are dry.
Tip #7 If desired, the Wad-Free can be left attached to one bottom corner, tucking it in as you make the bed. That way you won't have to go looking for it next time.
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, and a low or normal dry cycle, which might not be compatible with the Bedding, Bulky, Sanitize, Allergen, Cottons, Quick Wash, Heavy Duty, or other settings on your appliances. Wad-Free is designed to be used in conjunction with the fabric care instructions of your sheets. A high spin speed is not to be used when using Wad-Free. If your washer's "Normal" cycle uses a high spin speed, please manually dial it down.
Wad-Free is not for use with bamboo, eucalyptus, or rayon sheets which (unlike cotton) are very weak when wet, agitated, or dried, thus require extra gentle care. (Note that rayon goes by many names, including viscose, modal, lyocell, Tencel, acetate, cuprammonium, nitro silk, Bemberg silk, and art silk, and all fabrics claiming bamboo, eucalyptus, and beechwood are rayon.)
Not recommended for weakened, thinned, damaged sheets.See our Troubleshooting page if you are having trouble using your Wad-Free.
