How to take care of your linen

Here are some practical recommendations for taking good care of your Tomète table linen:


How to machine wash your table linen? Unlike other materials, the more you wash linen, the softer, suppler, and more beautiful it becomes. It can, of course, be hand-washed, but also machine-washed. Be cautious with older machines, as they can damage all fibers, including linen. We recommend washing your colored table linen at 40°C and up to 60°C for white linen. Do not overload the machine and separate the colors.

Which detergent should you use for washing your table linen? There is no need for special detergent. Prefer a mild detergent, and avoid chlorine-based or bleaching agents that could dull or damage your table linen.

What spin speed should you use for your table linen? We recommend 600 to 800 revolutions per minute maximum. Higher speeds may damage the fibers.


How to dry your table linen?

Preferred method: Air drying! Linen dries quickly. If you have the space, we recommend letting your table linen air dry, either flat or hanging.

Machine drying: Machine drying is also possible, but prefer a gentle cycle.


Is it necessary to iron your table linen? Ironing is optional. Unironed, your table linen will retain its natural, slightly wrinkled, and chic appearance.

How to iron your table linen? If you are not a fan of the wrinkled look, you can iron your table linen at low heat, making sure it is still slightly damp.


How to clean the most common stains from your table linen?

Red wine: Spilled a few drops? Rub the stain with sparkling water and put your table linen in the machine as soon as possible.

Grease: Lather the stain with dish soap and water, then let it sit overnight before washing it in the machine.

Coffee and tea: Dab the stain with water, then apply white vinegar. Wash as soon as possible.

Blood: For cuts, soak the bloodstain in saline solution and machine wash as soon as possible.

Candle wax: Remove as much wax as possible without scraping, place the fabric between two paper towels, and apply a hot iron to absorb the remaining wax.

Grass: Soak the stain in rubbing alcohol (for colored linen) or lemon juice (for white linen), then wash it in the machine.
