Care for Linen Shirts

Linen is a premium natural fabric made out of the fibers of the flax plant. Linen is breathable, stronger than cotton and more difficult to weave. These and other positive properties make it a pricier and more sought after fabric. Below are some tips on how to wash and care for linen so as to get the best out of it:

 

  1. It is important to first check the instructions on the label before attempting to clean your linen shirt to avoid missing special instructions.
  2. Regular washing is good for linen garments as it makes it softer, beautiful and more water absorbent.
  3. Linen can either be machine washed, hand washed or dry cleaned. This will depend on the special instructions on the label.
  4. Machine washing should be done on the short or delicate cycle with a cold water wash and rinse.
  5. When washing linen make sure to separate whites and colors because new linen dyes tend to bleed in the wash.
  6. Avoid harsh detergents when washing linen fabric. Always go with mild detergent specially formulated for delicate fabrics.
  7. Hand washing in cold water will extend the life of your linen shirt. Remember to use a mild detergent and agitate gently before rinsing the water till it is soap free.
  8. Ensure to use plenty of water during washing and rinsing to avoid creasing.
  9. It is recommended that you air dry linen clothes as opposed to using a machine drier.
  10. Try to dry linen while flat as opposed to hanging on a line to avoid appearance of marks and deformation of the garment.
  11. Set the iron to linen setting or iron while still damp. The heat from the hot iron will remove wrinkles and dry the fabric more effectively.
