Our embroidered dinner napkins and table linens create a festive and cheerful setting for any meal! Today we are sharing a few helpful tips on how to keep your linens looking as fresh as the day they arrived.
How you wash your linens will be dependent on your personal preference. If you love your napkins and runners to be super crisp, we recommend dry cleaning. If you are someone that is familiar with how linen responds when washed, and you enjoy the character the fabric develops after washing, you can opt to hand wash your linens in cool to warm water or machine wash them in a gentle cold cycle up to 65° F. If you decide to machine wash your linens, we recommend not using bleach and skipping the dryer. Always lay linens flat to dry or line dry.
Fresh stains are much easier to remove than old ones, so take care of stains as soon as you can! Best methods for stains include:
- Blot up any excess liquid with a clean, dry white cloth, or paper towel.
- Avoid rubbing the stained area with a terry cloth towel to keep fabric pilling to a minimum. Using a flat cloth dab at it with a bit of water. If it does not come out completely, add a tiny bit of OBA free detergent and dab at the spot, repeating the process until the stain is removed.
- Never rub a fresh stain with bar soap. Soap sets many stains
