Basking in the luxury of linen is about more than just its visual appeal; the true charm of this fabric lies in its enduring nature and straightforward care.

BlueFlowerCo Guide to Linen Maintenance

At BlueFlowerCo, we specialize in exquisite linen products made from premium European Flax. Part of cherishing these items involves taking care of them in a manner that ensures their lasting beauty. Here's a handy guide to help you keep your linen products looking and feeling their best.

Laundry Time

Linen, by its nature, is a robust material that grows softer and glossier with each laundry cycle. However, it does appreciate gentle handling. It's best to wash your linen goods in cool or slightly warm water, up to 30°C (86°F). The softer the wash mode, the better your linen will maintain its quality and durability. For cleaning agents, stick with mild, liquid detergents to avoid damaging the fibers.

Drying Out

Post-wash, air-drying your linen items is the optimal approach. If you are using a machine dryer, remember to select a gentle cycle with low heat. Since linen dries fairly quickly, aim to remove it from the dryer while it is still somewhat moist to avoid stubborn wrinkles.


A classic feature of linen is its propensity to develop a relaxed, soft wrinkle over time. However, if you desire a smoother look, you might choose to iron your linen. If so, it's best to do so while the fabric is still slightly damp, and always on the reverse side of any colored or patterned items to maintain their vibrancy. Use a moderately hot iron and adjust as needed.


When storing your linen, make sure it is entirely dry to prevent any mold or mildew. Ideally, linen goods should be laid flat or rolled. If folding is necessary, aim to refold regularly to avoid weakening the fabric at the creases.

Specific Guidelines

Linen Curtains: Regularly vacuum your linen curtains gently to remove dust. Should they require washing, use a mild cycle, and rehang them slightly moist to deter wrinkling.

Linen Table Linens and Napkins: After use, clear off any remnants and promptly rinse any spills. They can be machine washed and air-dried. If a sleek look is preferred, iron them while slightly damp.

With gentle care and a touch of patience, linen care is simple and rewarding. Your BlueFlowerCo linen products, treated right, will grow more lustrous and softer with each wash, enhancing their charm over time.
