Do you find yourself wincing at the thought of all the washing when laying your table for a party? Follow co-founder Rosy's simple steps below and you’ll no longer find yourself hesitating when deciding to use your linens even for the smallest of occasions.



  • It’s important to do a quick inspection of your linens before washing them as a simple pre-treatment can avoid stains from being sealed into the material.
  • To remove stains from linens, spray the area with Shout, Vanish or, if you can find it, Biotex spray (please tell us where!).
  • If you think it might be a particularly stubborn stain - such as curry, chocolate, tomato sauce, etc - gently work a little Fairy Liquid into the area too.
  • Once the linen has been pre-treated, put it on a delicate machine wash at 30 degrees. Using a non-bio powder or liquid will help prevent any designs fading.

TOP TIP: Watch out for candle wax! I find I am able to remove all stains from linens except coloured candle wax. I try to use non-drip candles which are mostly successful but I still find the odd pesky drip finds its way onto my linens!




  • Wash using a high spin
  • If you have a dryer, put the linen in for 5 minutes only to help smooth out
  • Hang out until almost dry
  • Iron whilst a little damp

TOP TIP: Do not add softener. RESULT: Lovely crisp linen!



  • Add a generous amount of softener to your wash, I use Comfort
  • Wash using a high spin
  • If you have a dryer, put the linen in for 5 minutes only to help smooth out
  • As you hang to dry, run your thumb and finger pinching along the edges to smooth them
  • If necessary to increase the softness, put back in the dryer for 5 minutes when they are almost dry


TOP TIP: If the linen feels too crisp it is because it needed more softener or another few minutes in the dryer. I am anti tumble dryers hence the 5 mins only, here and there! RESULT: Super soft crinkled linen.
