Washing & Care Instructions

Linen is a soft yet durable fabric created from the fibers of the flax plant and gets softer with every wash; it doesn’t pill stretch or loose shape. It’s hypoallergenic, moisture wicking and adjusts to your body temperature to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter which makes it a great choice for any time of the year

Some things to remember when cleaning your linen bedding:

Wash separately with like colours- don’t overload machine; the more water the better

Machine wash in lukewarm or cold water on a gentle cycle

Never use bleaches or detergents with color brighteners, these can discolor and weaken your linen sheets

Tumble dry on low heat

To minimize the natural wrinkling properties, you may hang them on a line to dry or machine tumble dry on a low temperature or a wrinkle release setting, remove and fold the sheets promptly when dry. You may steam iron on medium if desired

Try to remove any stains immediately after they are formed, as they get more difficult to take out the longer they set 

Start by rinsing the stain with cold water (this is important – hot water will set the stain), making sure you thoroughly wet both sides. Mix one part baking soda and one part water to create a thick paste and apply paste directly to stain. Once dry, brush off the paste before putting your sheets through the washing machine on a cold water setting. When the cycle’s finished, hang your sheets on the line to dry. It’s important not to use the dryer here as the high temperatures will effectively bake even the smallest residue into your sheets, making it very difficult to remove or reduce in future

To remove a dried stain, leave your sheets to soak for up to eight hours before following the process above

Use white vinegar for small stains and to neutralise odours. Soak stain in white vinegar for half an hour before putting the sheets through a cold wash cycle and line-drying. If you notice the stain hasn’t disappeared completely, repeat the process either straight away or next time you put the sheets through the wash and you should see a gradual improvement

Oil-based stains, such as those from make-up and other body products, require a different approach; namely hot water and a lot of detergent. Prep your washing machine with your normal laundry detergent, three squirts of dish-washing liquid and ¼ cup of Borax. Put 1/3 cup of white vinegar into the fabric softener dispenser and select a hot wash cycle. sheets for 30 minutes before the spin cycle kicks in will increase your chances of success.
