Caring for your Fine Linens
Our linens are made to last and when properly cared for, we stand behind our products. Machine washing is the best way to care for our linens as it not only restore the ample loft and volume of our fabrics, but it accentuates the inherent texture and luster of the natural fibers.
Please follow these guidelines:
Our Cotton, Tencel and Linen sheets are machine washable using warm water and Fine Fabric Wash. Tumble dry using a low temperature, gentle cycle.
Our towels should always be washed before their first use. They are easily machine washable using warm water and Fine Fabric Wash. Tumble dry.
Our Cotton Covers are machine washable using cold water, Fine Fabric Wash, and a rapid spin cycle. Tumble dry using a low temperature, gentle cycle.
HELPFUL HINTS TO MAKE CARING FOR YOUR FINE LINENS A BREEZE
• When washing, be sure to turn your linens inside out if possible.
• It's best to wash your pieces separately to give them plenty of water and adequate space. Therefore make sure your larger items comfortable fit in your home washer.
• Linens made from natural fibers such as silk, linen, cotton, cashmere and wool should be washed in cool or cold water.
• Use only Fine Fabric Wash as it is specifically formulated to gently and effectively clean fine washables. It is super concentrated, cold water active and biodegradable. And because it rinses away clean, leaving no damaging residue to break down fibers, it can keep fine linens in newer condition longer.
• Do not use any brighteners, bleaches or fabric softeners on our products.
• Set the wash cycle to spin-dry thoroughly and remove from the washer at once. Leaving them wet will cause the fibers to shrink or felt.
• Do not over-dry natural fibers as it will alter their shape, increase wrinkles and make the fabric brittle.
• To add even more freshness to every load, use SDH Dryer Sachets. Our French lavender filled sachets are wonderful for your drawers and cupboards too.
• Please be careful with lotions and medications that may come in contact with your linens. Avoid products with alpha hydroxy, retinol or any bleaching agent as they can discolor and destroy the fabric.
Down Care Guide
To ensure you enjoy maximum benefit from your down bedding, please follow these simple instructions;
- Pillows and comforters should always be used inside a cover.
- Pillows should always have a protector in addition to a cover.
- Comforters may be spot cleaned for spills and aired out occasionally.
- While frequent washing is not advised, down products may either be washed or professionally cleaned.
- Professional cleaning should only be performed by a company experienced with down products, as dirty cleaning fluid will cause the Down to clump, lose its lofting ability and occasionally develop a mild odor.
- We recommend washing only in a front-loading commercial capacity washer. No machines with agitators as these are too rough and will tear the baffles, which would void the warranty. Use a low sudsing detergent or a product specifically designed for washing down products. Run through the rinse cycle twice to remove all soap. Place in large capacity dryer on lowest heat setting and dry for several hours. This step is very important, because if down is not thoroughly dried, it may develop mold and odors.
