9 Tips For Washing Linen Fabrics

- Nov 28, 2020-

Linen fabric is very breathable, far more than pure cotton fabric, and it is more difficult to weave than cotton. This makes linen fabric products such as linen sheets, linen tablecloths and linen towels very expensive. Linen fabrics are easy to color and blend well with other fabrics, which also adds some difficulty to its daily maintenance.


When washing linen clothes, be sure to set the washing machine to "gentle washing". If your washing machine can choose the water level, be sure to choose the maximum water level, so that you can give your clothes more free movement space.


Don't wash too many clothes at one time, or it may cause your clothes to distort.


If there are clothes of other materials in the washing machine, make sure that their color, weight and washing method are similar to those of linen clothes.

If you wash by hand, be careful to be gentle-don't scrub or twist your linen clothes too hard. For the linen clothes that are not particularly dirty or have a loose texture, we usually recommend hand washing, so as to completely avoid the possibility of being damaged by the washing machine.


Both linen clothes and linen home textiles must be washed in cold or warm water-not ice or hot water.


Linen fabrics can only be washed with mild detergent, and make sure that there are no detergent residues before drying.


If your linen clothes have been pre-washed during the production process (you can check their labels before buying the clothes, there will be instructions on this), then it can be dried with a dryer. Just set the dryer at low temperature and throw the linen clothes into the dryer when they are still slightly wet.


When drying linen clothes, try to keep the surface as flat as possible. Hangers or clothespins may leave marks on clothes, and may also cause deformation of clothes.


If your linen clothes need ironing, please iron them while they are still slightly damp.
