Care and Repair
General directions for care and washing of bed linen and table linen.
Before washing sort your household linen by:
• fibre (cotton, linen, silk, wool)
• colour (whites, light colours, dark colours)
• type of item (sheets, towels, tablecloths).
Do not include items made of synthetic fibers to your linen.
Also, do not include garments with components that could damage fabrics (zippers, hooks, metal, parts). Make sure the items are unfolded when loading the machine. For bed linens we advise you to wash in cold water with mild, liquid biodegradable detergent.
Delicate items with lace and embroidery should be enclosed in a large, thin mesh bag. Pillowcases and duvet covers should be washed inside out to protect the lace.
When the wash cycle is completed, remove the laundry immediately and shake it to minimize wrinkles. Use maximum temperatures only on the hardest-to-clean articles.
For washing your bed- and table linen it is very important to use a good detergent. Many detergents contain a bleaching agent to make whites more vibrant. As this kind of detergent is recommended for white fabrics, it is certainly not recommended for coloured fabrics
For washing your bed linen and table linen we advise you to use exclusively liquid colour washing detergent. Avoid powdered detergent or detergents containing alkalis and make sure the detergent is fully dissolved before the water touches the fabric. The amount of detergent depends on how soiled the laundry is and on the hardness of the water. Use a smaller amount than specified on the package because such instructions usually over-estimate the required amount.
Never use Chlorine bleach. Chlorine bleach has an adverse effect on your fabrics.
