Let's just start by saying that taking care of linen items is simple and straightforward. High-quality linen fabric is robust and durable, and you shouldn't have to spend a lot of time and energy taking care of it. But in order for you to get the most and the best out of your linen products, here are some good tips:

Linen products can be both hand washed and machine washed. Both work fine and will not stretch or shrink your linens or towels. If you experience damage during washing, it may be due to the quality of the fabric or the chemicals involved.

1. Separate white, dark and colored products. For best results, wash separately from other fabrics/materials. Wash in lukewarm water, max 40C. High temperatures can cause shrinkage of up to 10% and weaken the linen fiber.
2. Use a gentle program and do not overload the machine.
3. Use a mild detergent without bleach.

For bed linen, the same rules apply as above with a couple more important things to consider. First, prepare the laundry by turning the bedding inside out. Fasten all buttons, tighten zips or ties, etc. Make sure your laundry has enough space in the machine so it can be rinsed properly. You can wash linen bedding with other delicate products but do not mix it with heavy items such as towels and jeans.
Linen is a natural material that gets softer with each wash, and stone-washed linen should already be maximally soft. Avoid fabric softener as it weakens the fibers, reducing their absorbency and moisture-transporting properties.

Pre-washed linen products can easily be machine dried on low heat. Remove from the dryer when the linen is still slightly damp and hang or lay flat to finish the process. The linen must be completely dry when it is put away for storage. Air drying is another good and environmentally friendly option that saves electricity and can give a slightly less wrinkled result - but remember that linen is a wrinkled material by nature.

The main rule of stain removal is to do it as quickly as possible! If you let dirt, oil, grease and other stains sit, they will absorb deep into the fiber making removal more difficult. If you have a small stain, soak and rub with soda water or put a little detergent on the stain and gently massage with a wet cloth until the dirt disappears, then wash as usual. Some stains are more difficult and can be removed by sprinkling baking soda and a few drops of vinegar on the fabric and then blotting with a paper towel to absorb the moisture.

Bleaching linen is not the best of ideas. Bleach and detergents with optical brighteners tend to weaken the fibers and can cause discoloration. If you are dealing with a stain, see the steps mentioned above.

Natural fibers like linen will wrinkle, wrinkle and wrinkle - you just have to accept it. But if you really want to go against nature and have a linen item pressed, use a medium heat iron on the fabric while it's still damp or cover it with a damp towel.

Make sure your bedding is completely dry to avoid mold. Natural fibers like linen need to breathe, so it's best to store them in cool, dry, well-ventilated areas and away from direct sunlight. Avoid storing linen in plastic bags, but choose linen or fabric bags. A tip is to reuse your old pillowcases.

When it comes to bedding, we recommend using three sets in rotation: one on the bed, one in the closet, and one in the laundry. This allows each set to rest from wash to wash and extends the life of your bedding.
