Laundering and maintaining your Irish linen is simple. Machine wash between 40-60 degrees, using earth-friendly detergent. It is preferable to air-dry rather than tumble dry which takes no time at all as linen dries quickly. If your prefer your linens formally crisp, iron whilst lightly damp to avoid fracturing the fibre. If you relish the caressing feel and finish of the rich wrinkle then simply fold and put away when almost dry. A spritz of water and a straightening tug when you are ready to use your linen goods will have them looking just right. Irish linen is naturally mildew resistant and anti-bacterial. It is an eco-material which whitens naturally in the sun, requiring no chemicals.
