How to care for linen fabrics

13 May

Here we have put together a few pointers to how to take care of your linen fabrics and to get them remain in good condition for longer. If you would like further advice please contact us!

Linen washing instructions:

  • Always follow the instructions included in the product.
  • Linen products are usually washed separately from other laundry.
  • Fill the washing machine only half full.
  • The linen product should also irrigated in lukewarm water before washing, as it reduces washing wrinkles from forming.
  • Check the lint filter before and after washing.
  • Washing temperature of 40 and 60 degrees.

The detergent according to the washing temperature:

60 degrees: white laundry detergent, bleached linen

40 degrees: colored laundry detergent, natural colored linen and linen terry.

Lots of water and the slow rhythm during washing to reduce wrinkling and shedding.

Linen fabric care instructions (after washing):

  • Straighten the linen fabric immediately after washing and hang to dry.
  • Avoid using a tumble dryer. It consumes natural fabrics.
  • Mangle or iron linen fabric when it’s moist.
  • Washing and ironing straight linen shrinks about 7%
  • Store linen products straight or rolled , as the linen fiber is fragile, which brakes easily if folded in long term storage.
