Enjoying Your Bed Linen For Years to Come

Enjoying Your Bed Linen For Years to Come

We often get asked how to look after bed linen and in this modern world we showcase linen ranges that are luxurious and easy to care for and made for families. 

Here are some of our tips, but always be sure to follow your products care label.

How to Look After Your Bed Linen

GENERAL

 

MACHINE WASHING

  • Always wash your linen before use and wash your bed sheets weekly.
  • Sort your household linen by fiber (cotton, linen, silk, wool) colour (whites, light colours, dark colours) and type of item (bed sheets, towels, table cloths).
  • Do not include garments with zippers, hooks, metal, that could damage fabrics.
  • Delicate items with lace and embroidery should be enclosed in a large, thin mesh bag.
  • Pillowcases and duvet covers should be washed inside out to protect the lace. When the wash cycle is completed, remove the laundry immediately and shake it to help flatten and pressing.
  • Use quality liquid detergent, well diluted. Never apply detergents directly to washing. Avoid using bleach. Bleach can be to harsh on cottons and natural fibres, and is damaging to the colour and texture of your purchases.
  • A cold, gentle machine wash is the optimum laundry temperature to clean your bed sheets and ensure all dirt is removed. Always read the care label!
  • Use maximum temperatures only on the hardest-to-clean articles. 

 

DRYING 

When machine drying, never dry your bed sheets at high temperatures. If your dryer is adjustable, use the medium fan and spin speed. For bed linen it is important to remove from the dryer before completely dry, gently fold then iron.

For line drying open each item and shake before hanging. Do not place coloured articles in direct sunlight, the sun makes whites seem shinier, but extended exposure may cause yellowing. Do not hang wool and delicate items vertically. Do not dry longer than necessary. 

 

IRONING & STEAMING

Use a steam iron on a warm setting for cotton; use a hot setting for bed linen and a water spritzer (our  ironing water is ideal). For embroidered linens, iron on the reverse side and while damp for best results.

Avoid using spray starch and choose the proper temperature, as indicated by the symbols on the care label: medium/high for cotton and linen, low for silk and wool. To protect the softness and absorbency of towels, do not iron.    

 

DRY CLEANING 

Luxury fibres, such as silk, wool and cashmere, are best professionally cleaned. To avoid excessive shrinkage to bed covers, such as light quilts, bedspreads, and throws, dry cleaning is highly recommended. Be sure to use professional dry cleaners who have experience with luxury linens and natural fibres.

Don't forget our Pillow Mist and Linen Sprays will give you that luxury 'turn down' experience that you enjoy in five star hotels.
