Care of Fine Linens
EGYPTIAN COTTON AND EXTRA LONG STAPLE COTTON-
Use a mild detergent with no stain removers or whiteners, we recommend and sell Le Blanc detergents. Wash in warm water preferably on medium spin cycle to prevent wrinkles. To reduce wrinkles put the flat sheet and cases in the dryer together on low for 10 minutes and take out damp, fold and smooth out with your hands and put away when completely dry. Then repeat with the fitted sheet on low for 10 minutes and take out damp. This helps the sheets to tumble freely and not get tangled in the fitted sheet, therefore reducing wrinkles.
DO NOT USE- FABRIC SOFTENERS, DRYER SHEETS, CHLORINE BLEACH OR DETERGENTS WITH WHITENERS.
Items must not be placed in the washing machine when folded. Linen wants to float: fill the washing machine with only a few items and little detergent. Linen and cotton prefer a gentle wash at 40 degrees on a low spin cycle and dry on low and remove damp and fold or press while damp or mist with water.
We recommend using The Laundress Products
BEECHWOOD FIBER MODAL-
Wash your linens in warm water with a mild detergent with no whiteners or brighteners and on the medium spin cycle. To reduce wrinkles put the flat sheet and cases in the dryer separately on low and take out immediately and fold and repeat with the fitted.
Do not over load the washer/dryer- this helps to reduce rubbing and abrasions, increasing the life of your linens.
Launder your linens separately from all other items.
Do not use an excessive amount of detergent, use the smallest amount needed for cleaning.
Do not use bleach, as it will weaken the fibers and cause yellowing.
Do not use fabric softeners or dryer sheets, they coat the fibers, reducing the fabric’s qualities, thus limiting the lifespan of your linens.
