Antique Linens – Taking Care Of Quality Products

Antique bedding should be cared for a longer life. When not in use, antique bed linen should be carefully hand washed and stored on clean cotton cloth or acid-free paper.

Antique bedding should be placed in a drawer or cupboard above another bed to avoid sharp creases. There is usually no yellowing or discoloration of the base if the base is not in contact with a painted surface or wood. You can also opt for embroidery linens at

If an antique bed will be stored for a long time, it should be folded regularly to remove wrinkles and bad discoloration during storage. Use detergent and mild soap to wash soft, delicate sheets.

Otherwise, some other cleaning product made specifically for laundry can be used. There are cleaning products that have been developed specifically for fine and antique textiles, as well as products that have been developed specifically to return antique fabrics to their original beauty and elegance.

When dealing with rust and stains, the product with the gentlest effect should be used. These products should first be tested for effectiveness in an inconspicuous area of underwear.

It is generally recommended to avoid chlorine bleach as it can be too harsh for most antique bedding and should only be used if no other alternative to the product is available. Instead, you can try using white vinegar or an oxygen product to remove stubborn soap residue and stains.
