Category: Household Textiles
You’ve heard the “advice” countless times before: air out your dry cleaned garments and household textiles before bringing them into your home.
In this post, I’ll tell you why that conventional notion makes no sense whatsoever and what you can do to avoid the prospect of having to air out your garments and household textiles.
Luxurious, distinctive European and American bed and table linens – antique, vintage, or modern – are costly and can be easily ruined if mishandled in the cleaning process.
Fact is, these linens demand a level of care that shouldn’t involve merely tossing them into a washer with hot water, caustic detergents and bleaches, tumbling in a dryer and folding.
This blog post is not a “how to” guide for washing, drying and folding your fine bed and table linens. The internet is awash in such guides.
Rather, this blog post is intended to address various issues faced by the owners of fine bed and table linens for whom home laundry results rarely meet expectations.
This blog post also introduces readers to the processes that should be followed by specialized french laundries who clean and restore fine bed and table linens.
