It is advisable to wash new sheets before putting them on the bed for the first time. Always wash dark colours separately. For most 100% cotton bedlinens we recommend to wash at 40ºC do not leave in washing machine overnight as fading may appear along crease lines. Always follow the washing instructions on the label. Commercial soap powders and detergents may be safely used but avoid detergents containing bleach or optical brighteners as they break down fabric fibres and cause colours to fade. Tumble dry but avoid overdrying as it causes wrinkles to set.
Always follow the washing instructions on the label. Limit use of fabric conditioners on towels. Whilst they give a soft feel, overuse of conditioners leaves a coating which reduces absorbency Avoid contact with facial cleansers and skin treatments as some contain Benzoyl Peroxide which has a bleaching effect. Pulled threads can simply be cut off as the towels are woven so that threads will not run.
Old spots are virtually impossible to remove - seek assistance from cleaning firm.
Every wool fibre naturally has its own thin, protective layer. This allows wool to repel dirt and gives you the opportunity to act when anything is spilled on the carpet. Naturally, all spots should be treated as soon as possible. Below are some useful tips.
Always remove the spot immediately.
Scrape off as much of the spilled moisture or substance with a spoon or a knife where possible, working from the edge towards the centre of the spot.
Clean the spot with a cloth or absorbing paper. Do not rub or scrub, just dab!
Do not make the spot too wet.
When using a detergent, always remove it from the pile using water (when using detergents or a solvent, always try it out in an inconspicuous place first).
Dry the carpet thoroughly after removing the spot, using a hairdryer.
