Why you should regularly wash linen

Summer is here and it’s the perfect season to wear linen clothes. They are comfortable, beautiful and they can be used on different occasions: from formal parties to a casual lunch at a coastal restaurant. However, one important thing about linen to make your clothes last longer is to wash them regularly.

Do you want to know why and understand a little bit more about ideal laundry practices?We have some Laundry Lady expert tips for you.

Importance of regularly washing linen

Linen is a natural fiber and it’s important to wash it regularly because it has to be softened. Plus, during summer, you don’t want to be wearing sweaty, or smelly, clothes.

Usually, it’s a good recommendation to wash them once or twice a week. If you accidentally add stains to them, better to avoid postponing the laundry day.

Also, when you wash your clothes made of this fabric on a regular basis, you give them a relaxed feel, which is more gentle to your skin.

How to wash linen

First of all, it’s important to pay attention to what’s written on the care label for washing instructions. In the end, some linen can require different washing recommendations or even laundry liquids. 

Another important tip is to separate white, dark and coloured clothes. Because it’s a natural fiber, sometimes it can lose some of the fabric paint and we don’t want your linen clothes to get harmed.

How our Laundry Ladies and Lads wash your linen clothes

During our 10-year experience in Australia, we’ve washed all sorts of fabrics from clothes and uniforms to towels, bedding, and so much more. Because of that, our team is very careful with linen clothes, a standard that we are proud to maintain in New Zealand with our franchisees.

Laundry Ladies and Lads wash them with cold water and choose a delicate or gentle cycle in their machine to make sure that they are not getting any damages. Hot water is not recommended because it could result in shrinkage. But we can accommodate for hot washes if your laundry requires it. We tailor services to you.

After the washing step, it’s possible to put the linen clothes in the dryer. The drying cycle usually can be a combination of machine and air drying.

As long as the care instructions say the pieces are suitable on the garment, our team is instructed to use a medium heat to dry linen shirts, linen bedding or linen clothes to avoid damages.

What about the wrinkles? You don’t have to worry about them anymore. We can iron everything that is made of this fabric, usually preferring a medium-high heat setting and smoothing out the creases by applying careful pressure.

Despite seeming challenging, it’s possible to regularly wash linen, especially if you count on us to do the hard job for you. Gently, as it has to be with linen clothes and, of course, with all of the customers who trust us to take a load off their minds.
