Linens & Lace

Summer brings so many great things, but it also brings white EVERYTHING!  White lace, white linen pants, and more!  As your closet begins to fill with white we have 5 tips to help you keep those whites in the condition you bought them in!

1. Wash Inside Out

This trick prevents delicate linens and lace from being picked by the machine or by other materials such as buttons.  Lace is especially delicate when it comes to being picked.  This can be avoided!

2. Protect Delicates

Most detergents simply aren’t gentle enough to use on fine linens. It’s imperative to use a mild “baby” detergent, or one that is non-alkaline and doesn’t contain bleach or brighteners. 

3. Button It Up

Take the time to button up and zip up your garments.  By doing this you are securing the garment. This can prevent extra wear and tear during the washing period.  Also by doing this after being cleaned your garments will stay in the condition you bought them in.

4. No Cramming

Keeping your closets and drawers from getting crammed keeps your linens and delicate fabrics from breaking down and getting ruined.  The constant wrinkling and ironing of the fabrics breaks down the fibers in the materials and ruins the garments. 

5. Stop Pouring

Pouring detergent directly onto the fabrics leaves room for error.  You can end up with blue stains on all white garments.  The best way to wash your whites and delicate linens are to let the tub fill with water and let the detergent dissolve into the water then add your garments.
