Customers are always asking how to launder our embroidered linens and especially how to remove stains. Madeline from The Laundress demonstrates how to remove common stains from linen embroidered napkins: red wine, lipstick, and greasy food.
RED WINE: apply stain solution on the stain; work it into the stain with a brush or finger; soak the stained area in water; wash in cold water and a delicate detergent.
GREASY FOOD: rub moistened wash & stain bar on the stained area; brush; soak; wash in cold water with delicate detergent.
LIPSTICK: apply stain solution and bleach alternative, creating a paste; soak; wash in cold water with delicate detergent.
- Brush helps get into the fibers of the fabric
- All linens should air dry (not machine dry)
- Always wash linens in cold water with delicate detergent
