- Care Instructions & Labelling
We have spent many years of testing to understand how a product performs in actual day to day use, which in turn helps us to develop care instructions that will achieve the best longevity out of our products. This is what Sheridan and our customers expect and deserve.
Care instructions vary based on the constructions of each fabric and product so we have compiled some basic guidelines when it comes to caring for your linen.
What detergent should you use?
Use a mild detergent and wait until it is fully diluted in the water before putting sheets in the washing machine. Undiluted detergents can cause staining on the fabric. Read the amount recommended on the laundry liquid bottle or box to determine how much to use.
Sheridan recommends to use a detergent that is free from Optical Brightening Agents (OBAs). This is a very common ingredient in most of the detergents and is great for keeping whites white, however can also weaken and discolour certain fabric fibres. We recommend using a eucalyptus based detergent such as wool wash which you can find in your local supermarket.
Should you use fabric softener?
Fabric softener is not required with our Abbotson Linen. Linen is a beautiful, natural fabric that will soften dramatically with time and use.
How do I remove stains?
We recommend cleaning stains as quickly as possible after they appear, although we understand etiquette might sometimes prevent this. Try to not strenuously scrub the stain away, but rather to gently soak, wash or blot it out, this process can be repeated until optimum results are obtained. It is easier to remove stains from natural as opposed to synthetic fabrics because the natural fibres are living and more accepting of attention. Once a stain is truly set, however, it is often difficult to remove.
When a fabric comes in contact with bleach or benzoyl peroxide it will permanently stain/discolour. If the discolouration is a green hue it is due to bleach and if it is an orange hue then it is due to peroxide exposure. As these ingredients are known to be in certain skin and acne treatments, we recommend you be aware of the potential staining to your linen and take necessary precautions to avoid permanently damaging your linen.
What water temperature is best?
Sheridan recommends that all of our Abbotson Linen products be laundered using a gentle machine wash at 40 degrees. The warm water temperature setting is more effective at removing dirt and natural body oils and more importantly in removing chemical residue of the detergents from the fabric. Detergent residue will deteriorate the fabric fibres if they are not rinsed out properly.
The gentle wash cycle protects the natural fibres used in our product construction. With the slow cycle, the products are left in the washing machine for a longer period of time ensuring dirt and body oils are removed completely and all detergent is rinsed out of the fabric properly.
By not overloading the tub, avoiding excess heat, detergent and any additives, and choosing gentle cycles and thorough rinses, you will protect your linens from stress and damaging surface residue.
Should you put your Abbotson Linen in the dryer?
Air drying is best for the longevity of your linen sheets, but can sometimes leave the linen feeling a bit stiff to the touch. If you plan to air dry the sheets, 10-12 minutes on medium heat in the dryer before you hang them out to dry helps to re-orient the fibres after washing and leaves a soft finish on the surface of the fabric.
When drying linen sheets in the dryer, put one sheet and one pillowcase together at a time to avoid overloading. Drying items in smaller loads allows for even drying of your sheets. Dry the sheet and pillowcase for no longer than 20 minutes on the low or medium heat setting. Repeat this process for the remaining items. Remember: linen dries much faster than cotton so be cautious as to not over dry your linen sheets as this will weak their natural fibres and potentially cause them to deteriorate.
Remove the sheets from the dryer while they are still slightly damp. Spread them out neatly on the bed or hang them over a railing or shower curtain rod to finish air-drying. Gravity will do the work of eliminating nearly all wrinkles. The cool, gentle flutter of a ceiling fan is also great for the final stage of drying. Remember these steps and you will be amazed by how quickly the linen is dry and how soft it becomes with each wash.
Please always ensure your bedlinen is completely dry before storing in your linen closet to prevent any dampness and mildew.
By following our recommended care instructions you will prolong the life of your bed linen and be able to enjoy it for many years to come.
