It is not difficult to wash and care linen products


Quick and easy care instructions:

  • Wash linen products separately from other washing (wash dark and light colours separately)
  • Completely soak the textiles before washing, especially linen terry (this is to ensure that the water in the machine is not absorbed into the textiles but instead used for washing and rinsing off the loose fibres)
  • Regularly check the machine’s lint filter, especially before and after washing a product for the first time
  • 60° C wash, “mild” spin-drying, half-full loading
  • Straighten and smooth out the textiles and hang on washing line to dry
  • Flat-woven textiles must be mangled when damp

Sorting and preparing linen products for washing

  • Always adhere to the washing instructions and temperatures stated on the product’s care label (usually 60° C)
  • Remove stains immediately after staining and use natural stain soaps if necessary
  • Wash linen textiles separately from other washing. Lint comes off natural fibres, especially during the first few washes
  • Make sure the washing machine is only half full in order to ensure that the textiles stay smoother
  • Completely soak the textiles before washing in the washing machine


  • Linen does not require pre-washing as pre-washing will wear out linen
  • Washing temperature is usually 60° C
  • Linen also endures higher temperatures, but the textile will wear out more in higher temperatures compared to lower temperatures
  • Plenty of water during washing will reduce wrinkling
  • Slower washing speed and higher water level will decrease the amount of lint coming off during the first washes (“light spinning”)
  • The washing detergents’ bleaching agents will lighten the natural-coloured linen rather quickly
  • Avoid long spin-drying cycles as long spin times might cause permanent wrinkles to the fabric
  • Check the lint filter before and after washes according to the manufacturer’s instructions

After care

  • straighten out the textiles immediately after washing and hang to dry on washing lines
  • avoid tumble drying as it wears out natural fibres
  • mangle or iron linen products when damp
  • linen also endures well higher ironing temperatures
  • mangled table napkins can be folded into impressive arrangements for the dinner table

Special treatments

  • chlorine bleaching is not recommended for linen textiles
  • if desired, linen table setting textiles can be starched after washing – adhere to the starching agent manufacturer’s instructions if starching textiles

Wash and care tips

  • soak the textiles in (lukewarm) water before washing in order to prevent wrinkles and decrease the amount of loose fibre on the textile’s surface
  • the surface of linen terry turns wonderfully smooth when mangled after washing
  • in order to make the table cloth’s surface smooth, roll the damp table cloth around a cardboard roll covered with plastic and roll the roll on a table for 5 minutes, then leave to dry. Water wrinkles will automatically straighten out and it is also easy to iron the table cloth in order to make the textile’s surface completely smooth
