Linen Care Guide

Linen is a durable and breathable fabric that is made from the fibers of the flax plant. It is a popular choice for clothing, bedding, and home decor items. Proper care of linen is important to ensure its longevity and maintain its appearance. Here are some linen care instructions:

  1. Washing: Linen should be washed in cold or lukewarm water, preferably by hand. If using a washing machine, select a gentle cycle and use a mild detergent. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as they can damage the fibers. Linen can be tumble dried on low heat, but it is recommended to air dry it to prevent shrinkage.

  2. Ironing: Linen wrinkles easily, so it is recommended to iron it while it is still damp or use a steamer to remove wrinkles. Use a hot iron and iron on the reverse side of the fabric to prevent shine.

  3. Storing: Store linen in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area. Avoid storing linen in direct sunlight or damp areas. Linen should be stored flat or rolled to prevent creasing.

  4. Spot cleaning: If a stain occurs, blot the area with a clean, damp cloth as soon as possible. Avoid rubbing the stain, as this can spread it. Use a mild detergent and warm water to clean the area, and rinse thoroughly. Allow the area to air dry completely before using or storing the linen item.

  5. Dry cleaning: Linen can be dry cleaned, but it is recommended to avoid it if possible, as dry cleaning can cause the fabric to become stiff and lose its natural luster.

By following these care instructions, you can keep your linen items looking their best and ensure their longevity.
