Care of embroidered linen.
Gently wash by hand using black soap to remove any stubborn stains before washing your embroidered linen in the washing machine. Do not use bleach as it will damage the fabric.
Before putting your linen in the washing machine, carefully to place it in a special bag for delicate linen so that the embroidery threads are not damaged by rubbing. Then wash in the washing machine at 40°c, cold, on the gentle program. Do not spin too hard to avoid damaging the embroidery.
Once your embroidery has been washed, lay it out flat to avoid distorting it, away from any source of heat and in the shade if you are hanging it outside.
A little tip: don’t let the laundry dry completely, it will be easier to iron.
Iron your embroidered linen while it is still wet, using a hot iron and full steam. You can also place a terry towel under the linen to avoid flattening the embroidery stitches and to give the work more emboss effect.
