Always Pre-wash New Linens Before Using
The first soak is vital to enhance linen’s beauty, settle its threads, and prolong its life. Fully unfold your linen and use a mild liquid detergent, less than the quantity you usually employ. Please note: use of a fabric softener is not advisable as it weakens natural fibres. Much like your heart, linen will soften naturally over time.
Segregate For Following Washes
Always segregate your dark linens from your light ones; pre-treat stains before washing; do not bleach; wash in a gentle warm water cycle and finish off with a cold water rinse.
Be Gentle While Drying
Natural fibres like linen are delicate, so drying on a clothesline is best. If using a machine dryer, gently shake out and smooth damp linens before placing in the dryer; set to the lowest heat.
Iron While Still Damp
It is advisable to take your linens out of the dryer while still damp and then iron. Spray headstrong wrinkles with water, if required.
Say No To Plastic Storage
Linen needs to breathe, so say no to plastic bags and boxes. Store in a dry, cool ventilated area and for long term storage, wrap in muslin cloth.
And above all, be kind. You’re going to be together for a long, long time.
