Washing and taking care of your linen product is very simple!

Quick and easy instructions:

  • wash linen products separately from other laundry (and wash always dark colours separately)
  • wet textiles soaking wet before placing them in the wash, especially linen terry (more water is left for washing and carrying fluff away, when water in the washer does not all absorb in the dry textiles)
  • check the filter of the washing machine regularly, especially before and after washing a new product for the first time
  • 60 ° C, short spin, machine half full, normal cycle
  • straighten the textiles and hang on the line to dry
  • mangle flat woven linen textiles when moist

 

Sorting and preparation for washing linen products
* obey always the washing instructions and temperatures (usually 60 ° C) given on the label or
* remove any stains rapidly and use natural stain soap whenever necessary
* wash linen textiles separately from other laundry, natural fibre discharges pill especially during the first washes

* only half-fill the washing machine in order to keep textiles smoother

* wet textiles before putting them in the washer

Washing
* linen does not usually need to be pre-washed, it just unnecessarily wears out the fabric
* The usual wash temperature is 60° C
* linen tolerates higher temperatures but it wears out more rapidly than in lower temperatures
* using plenty of water reduces creasing during wash
* slow wash cycle and high level of water in the wash reduces pill discharge during the first washes (so called delicate cycle)
* bleaching agents whiten the natural-coloured linen quite rapidly
* avoid long spin as it can cause permanent creasing
* check the filter before and after wash according to instructions in the machine manual


Aftercare
* straighten the textiles immediately after wash and hang on the line to dry
* avoid using tumble dryer as it wears out natural fabrics* mangle or iron linen products when they are still moist
* linen tolerates very high ironing temperatures
* mangled napkins can be folded to make impressive settings for festive table settings

Special treatments
* chlorine bleach is not recommended for linen textiles
* linen textiles for setting the table can be starched after wash, follow the instructions of the starch manufacturer

Hints and tips for wash and care
* new linen textiles can be soaked in lukewarm water before wash, this may help to avoid creasing during the wash and loose fluff staying on the textiles
* linen terry becomes nice and smooth if you mangle it after washing
* table cloth is easy to straighten by rolling it while quite moist around a plastic-coated cardboard roll and turning the roll Water creases straighten by themselves and the cloth is easy to iron so that it becomes really crease-free
