Fabric Care Tips

Caring for Linen

By July 31, 2014 No Comments
  • Linen is washable, but it can shrink if it has not been pre-shrunk by the manufacturer. Always check the care label attached to the garment before laundering.
  • If machine washing linens, use warm water and a short, gentle cycle.
  • Separate colors before washing. Many linens may bleed.
  • Dry linen garments on a clothing rack or hanger.
  • Have all pieces of your linen outfits drycleaned at the same time to avoid color discrepancies.
  • When pressing, use a high temperature with a spray mist or damp cloth.
  • If your linens have been treated with a wrinkle-resistant finish, use a lower setting on your iron.
