Caring for Your Linen Wardrobe
Linen clothing at Soho Bay is celebrated for its enduring elegance and unmatched comfort. Our customers have long cherished linen garments for their timeless appeal. The virtues of linen are truly exceptional. Not only does it exude a natural and effortless sophistication, but it also provides exceptional breathability, making it the ideal choice for warmer seasons.
However, many find themselves in a quandary when it comes to caring for their beloved linen pieces. They appreciate the chic and relaxed appearance, the soft texture, and the fabric's natural, breathable, and antibacterial qualities, but they often fret about maintaining their linen garments for years to come.
Fear not, as linen care is simpler than you might think! Here are some essential tips:
- Always begin by checking the fabric content and washing instructions on the garment, as linen blends may require different care.
- Use the gentle cycle on your washing machine and wash linen with similar fabrics.
- Opt for cold or lukewarm water, as hot water can cause linen to shrink.
- Choose mild detergents and skip fabric softeners – linen softens naturally over time!
- Avoid bleach or detergents with whitening agents.
- If machine drying is allowed, tumble dry on low to preserve the fibres and prevent potential shrinkage.
- Minimise the use of pegs, as they can create stretch marks; instead, opt for hangers on the clothesline.
- When ironing, use medium heat and the steam setting on your iron.
- For dark colours, press on the reverse side of the fabric.
- Consider using steamers for garments that are challenging to iron.
- When dealing with stains, spot clean whenever possible to reduce excessive washing.
- Replace bleach with a mixture of baking soda and a few drops of vinegar.
