How to Wash Linen in 5 Easy Steps

Linen clothing can vary significantly in terms of texture and weight, and for more delicate items, handwashing may be the best choice. Fill a small tub or sink with cold water and then add a dab of gentle laundry detergent. The water should be lightly soapy—not overly dense or sticky. Swish the garment lightly in the water, taking care not to twist, wring, or stretch the fabric. When you’re ready to rinse the garment, drain the tub and refill it with cold, clean water. Lightly swish the item as you did when washing (this step may need to be repeated a couple times), and make sure all detergent has been removed before drying your clothing.
