How to care for linen bedding? 

At Dreams jumper, we test our products and put them to use in our everyday lives to develop and provide proper care instructions to our customers.

Natural linen is a delicate fiber, so always treat it with love and care. It's a prevalent misperception that linen is difficult to maintain or only fit for dry cleaning. In truth, linen is relatively easy to clean and should not be dry-cleaned. Linen has been cultivated and used as a textile for thousands of years, made from fibers inside the flax plant. Because it's such a natural, plain fabric, it's also simple to maintain.

One of the reasons people love linen so much is that it gets softer and more absorbent with each wash. Although easy to care for, there are a few things to keep in mind when washing linens, which differ slightly from how you would wash other natural materials like cotton 

Here are some basic guidelines to help you keep your linen looking flawless for years to come. Hand-washing and machine-washing linens are both acceptable ways that will not stretch or shrink your linens. 

Machine Washing

  1. Begin by turning the sheets and duvet covers inside out and buttoning all buttons, tying ties, and so on. Don't overload your machine: the more water, the better.
  2. Sort the linens into white, dark, and colored piles. Wash separately from other fabrics for optimum results.
  3. Wash in lukewarm water. High temperatures can cause linen to shrink by up to 10% and damage the fibers. If you want your bed linens to be exceptionally soft, we recommend a cool wash with natural fabric softener (a mix of baking soda and white vinegar will do magic); 30 degrees should suffice, but 40 degrees on gentle would suffice as well. Don't overload your washing machine and use the gentle machine cycle.
  4. Use a gentle fabric detergent designed for fragile materials. Washing powder can get stuck in the fibers, reducing fabric softness and lifespan. Bleach should not be used on bed linens. Bleach is a strong chemical that can harm the fabric.
  5. Don't use too much detergent. Over time, too much detergent degrades fibers. Detergent can cause discoloration if applied directly to the fabric. Instead, load the washing machine halfway with water and detergent, then add the sheets to dilute the detergent. Finally, avoid using fabric softener because it weakens the fabric. Our sheets are already luxuriously soft.

Drying

You can hang them to dry, tumble dry on a lower temperature using a tumble dryer sheet, or line dry to reduce the natural wrinkling tendencies. These methods will ensure that it remains incredibly soft.

Stain removal

We recommend removing stains as soon as they appear if at all possible. Sprinkle baking soda over the stain and then use a few drops of vinegar to remove it. Blot (not scrape) the stain with a paper towel to absorb excess moisture, and repeat as needed.

Although stains are easier to remove from natural linen than from synthetic fabrics, it is typically difficult to remove once a stain has set in.

Ironing

One of the best aspects of 100% linen bedding is that it does not require ironing. The premise is that because it has a tumbled appearance, you may throw it right on the bed and climb in unless it has become highly crumpled in the dryer. Use a medium-hot iron if you want to, if you enjoy ironing, or like a neater look.

Above all, enjoy it, slumber on it, and bask in the glory of this one-of-a-kind fabric.
