Washing advice linen bedding
Simple and durable
How can you best wash your linen bedding?
Washing your linen bedding like your duvet covers and pillowcases is not difficult, you just have to know a few things!
Linen bedding should never be washed too hot, wash it at no more than 30 or 40 degrees Celsius. Use a mild detergent without chlorine and bleach-containing agents (cause stains and discoloration).
Powerful detergents can damage the fibers and color of linen (as well as other textiles) and are not beneficial to the longevity of textiles.
Do not overload your washing machine or the fibers may break. Separate light and dark colors, wash your linen bedding separately from your other laundry such as wool, polyester or cotton. The fibers of these fabrics can blend with the natural fiber of the linen. This does not benefit the softness and purity of the linen.
It is best to let the bed linen be dry in the open air. But we understand very well that this is not (always) possible. Either you don’t have the space or it’s just raining…. :-). To get the linen nice and soft, we recommend that you dry the duvet cover in the dryer for another 10 minutes on a low temperature.
Drying in a tumble dryer is also allowed; this does make the linen more subject to wear and tear. Dry it separately from other laundry (such as cotton, etc.) at a low temperature. And in the evening you have a delicious soft bed.
Ironing your linen bedding is neither necessary nor recommended. If you do want to iron it, always iron it inside out. Pressing the linen is not allowed due to the high temperatures (moisture and heat).
After each wash your linen becomes softer and more beautiful
A few more facts:
Do you use night cream, body lotion or another cream at night. Make sure this is well soaked in, it can tarnish and/or discolor the linen. For example, white spots can be caused by the use of creams used in acne treatment.
Do you have a linen fitted sheet? Then we recommend having a set so you can alternate them. A fitted sheet wears out faster because there is more friction because you are always turning over several times at night anyway. By alternating, you extend the life of your fitted sheet. This also applies to your duvet cover and pillowcases.
