How To Clean Linen


The right way to wash linen always starts with pre-treatment! First, check your tag to ensure your linen item is washable. Then, proceed with stain pretreatment.

Always test dyed linen fabric before applying enzymatic stain treatments like Stain Solution. Some linen fabrics may be prone to color loss depending on the dye process of the garment.

Flax linen is particularly prone to pit stains, yellowing, and dinginess. Focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, cuffs, and hems when pretreating to help remove stain-causing buildup from setting in over time.

Machine Wash

Yes, you can machine wash linen! Always check tags for any special instructions before laundering, and wash with a fine detergent for everyday fabrics. For more delicate linen pieces, a gentler solution like our enzyme-free Delicate Wash can be used. This formula is also excellent for handwashing special linen pieces.

For more durable linen clothes, an everyday detergent can be used to wash. We formulated our Signature Detergent to lift stains and deep clean washable everyday fabrics for a beautiful finish. Launder linen garments on the normal cycle with warm water to achieve the deepest clean, or use cold water for a gentler wash.

Always protect any smaller linen pieces like delicate blouses by placing inside a Mesh Bag. Add a touch of softness and static reduction to fabrics with Fabric Conditioner if desired. Wash linen with like colors and fabrics only to help prevent color and lint transfer.

Dry & Finish

Most linen can withstand tumble drying with medium to high heat. That being said, we always recommend opting for a lower heat cycle if possible to be easier on your fabrics.

Line drying helps preserve fibers, colors, shape, and elasticity, while also saving energy. Give linen a quick steam with a fabric steamer to help soften linen's stiffness after air drying.

To ease ironing linen, remove from the dryer while still damp or line dry. To remove wrinkles from linen, iron on the highest temperature setting, or steam for a more relaxed finish.
