Caring for your linen bed linen

Linen bedding is easy to care for. You can machine wash it, and lightly tumble dry or line dry it. Linen gets better with every wash, and becomes more absorbent, softer, and shiny over time.
Make sure you use the right washing agents. Do not use bleaching agents for coloured linen bed sheets as it can cause spotting or discoloration. Use only gentle detergents to wash the linen bedding. Even chlorine bleaches can cause damage to the fibre, and should be avoided. No matter you wash your bed linen with hand or machine, make sure you rinse it properly to remove the detergent and soap properly.
