DRYING

When machine drying, never dry at high temperatures. If your dryer is adjustable, use the medium fan and spin speed. For bed linens it is important to remove from dryer before completely dry, gently fold then iron. For line drying open each item and shake before hanging. Do not place coloured articles in direct sunlight, the sun makes whites seem shinier, but extended exposure may cause yellowing. Do not hang wool and delicate items vertically. Do not dry longer than necessary.

 

IRONING

Use a steam iron on a warm/hot setting for cotton; use a hot setting for linen and a water spritzer if needed. For embroidered linens, iron them on the reverse side and while damp for best results. Avoid using spray starch and choose the proper temperature, as indicated by the symbols on the care label: medium/high for cotton and linen, low for silk and wool. To protect the softness and absorbency of towels, do not iron.

 

DRY CLEANING

Luxury fibres, such as silk, wool and cashmere, are best professionally cleaned. To avoid excessive shrinkage on top-of-the-bed pieces, such as light quilts, bedspreads, and blankets, dry cleaning is recommended. Be sure to use professional dry cleaners who have experience with luxury linens and natural fibres.
