Care instructions for linen clothing.

Linen is a natural fiber made from flax plant, which is durable, breathable and comfortable to wear. However, linen clothing requires proper care to maintain its quality and avoid damage. Here are some care instructions for linen clothing:

    1. Read the care label: Check the label on your linen clothing to see if there are any specific instructions from the manufacturer.

    2. Wash linen clothing separately: Linen clothing should be washed separately from other fabrics, especially those that shed lint, as lint can cling to linen fibers and cause pilling.  When washing linen clothing, it's best to use cold or slightly warm water, as hot water can cause the fabric to shrink and lose its shape. Cold water also helps to preserve the color of the fabric. Additionally, when washing linen clothing in a washing machine, it's important to use a gentle cycle to avoid damaging the fibers. By using cold or slightly warm water and a gentle cycle, you can help to ensure that your linen clothing stays in good condition.

    3. Use mild detergent: Use a mild detergent to wash your linen clothing. Harsh detergents can damage the fibers and cause discoloration.

    4. Hand-wash or machine wash on a gentle cycle: You can either hand-wash or machine wash your linen clothing on a gentle cycle.

    5. Do not bleach: Avoid using bleach on linen clothing, as it can cause discoloration and weaken the fibers.

    6. Tumble dry on low heat or air dry: Linen clothing can be tumble dried on low heat, but air drying is recommended to prevent shrinkage.

    7. Iron while damp: Linen clothing is prone to wrinkles, so it's important to iron it while it's still damp. Use a medium to high heat setting and iron on the wrong side of the fabric to avoid damaging the fibers.

    8. Store in a cool, dry place: Store your linen clothing in a cool, dry place to prevent mildew growth and discoloration.

By following these care instructions, you can ensure that your linen clothing will stay looking great for years to come.
