LINEN WASHING TIPS:

MACHINE WASHING

New linen should be washed in cooler water temperatures for the first few washes; this will set the mercerization process. We recommend to separate your linens from other items in the first wash. Future wash temperatures should be at 40°C, but for stubborn stains, temperatures can be raised to 60°C. At that temperature, the smooth flax fibers that make up the linen material will release any staining.

If your washing machine allows you to select the water level, choose the highest one offered because linen is highly absorbent. Avoid crowding the washing machine with too many items at once as it can result in twisting or pulling the linen fabric out of shape. Be sure that any other items washed with linen clothing are similar in color, weight and washing instructions.


DETERGENT

Use a neutral or mild detergent that does not contain any bleaching agents such as chlorine or peroxide. Do not pour detergent directly on textiles; rather, add it to the water as the wash tub fills or dilute detergent with water, then add linens. Be sure that detergent is completely rinsed from the garment before drying.

BLEACHING

The detergents that contain bleaching agents are perfect for white linen but should not be used for washing coloured linen or else your linen would get discoloured or spotted. Chlorine bleach can weaken fibers and cause them to yellow. If white fabrics need bleaching, use an oxygen-based bleach.

DRYING

Do not wring out linen before drying. Whatever drying method you choose – line drying, tumbler drying or lying out on a terry towel – make sure your linen articles are slightly damp before ironing.  Drying white linen in the sun helps to retain the original white color. Overdrying is the most harmful process for fabrics as it weakens the fibers causing shrinkage and pilling. Over-dried items restore their natural moisture content after re-absorbing moisture from the air.

IRONING

Remove your linens from the dryer promptly while still damp to reduce wrinkles. Smooth and fold, or press with an iron if desired. Iron linens while still slightly damp on the reverse side of the fabric. Use a steam iron on a warm/hot setting for linen and a water spritzer if needed.

SHRINKAGE

Our washed linen production is highly resistant for shrinkage compared with non-washed linen. Pre-shrunk items normally shrink 3 percent or less. Do not wash or, especially, dry linens on a hot setting, which is most likely to cause shrinkage.

HOW TO SOFTEN AT HOME

Traditional fabric softeners may not work well on linen fabric; plus, they may add a chemical residue or a scent that you don't want. An option for a natural fabric softening method is adding a solution of 1/2 cup of baking soda or 1 cup of vinegar to the wash. You can soak the linen overnight in a stronger solution of 1 cup of vinegar to 1 gallon of water before washing. Use dryer balls during the drying cycle, because once again, you're trying to increase friction.
