Table Linens Laundry Care Guide

Your beautiful table linens have been created just for you. These fabrics are used successfully by the catering and hotel industries and will serve you well for years to come with just a little care.

Please contact us for washing instructions specific to your fabric. The following are some general recommendations by the Manufacturer of Millikin -Visa Fabrics for easy care of these products in Home Washers and Dryers.

  • Equipment: Maytag, Kenmore, General Electric, Whirlpool, etc.

  • Loading: Do not overload washer or dryer. Wash loads must have good floatation and agitation.

  • Washing: Use perma press cycle or split water temperatures (110-130°) with a cold
    water rinse. Use chemicals recommend for home type washers. Do not use softeners, as they may waterproof the linen.

  • Dryers Use perma press cycle for 12-15 minutes with an 8 minute cool down.
    (Times may vary due to load size and extraction). If dryers do not have
    perma press cycle, use medium heat (120 - 160°), and "air" for cool down
    step. Do not overload dryer; linen must tumble freely for optimum flat dry
    results.

Check List for Wrinkles:

    1. Overloading - wash loads may be too large for size washer or dryer (no mechanical action "or floatation equipment).

    2. Over drying - linen may be too dry before cool down begins. Reduce dryer time to where linen is just dry before cool down cycle begins.

    3. Thermal Shock Wrinkles - drastic changes in fabric temperatures. Examples: water
      Temperature drops from 180° -100°; dryers are being stopped while still hot (140° - 160°).

    4. Improper Cool Down - dryers have been stopped before linen has been cooled to normal body temperature for folding.

    5. Process Wrinkles - wrinkles due to mishandling. Linen which has been set in the washer, dryers, or hampers for prolonged periods of time.

    6. Improper Storage - inadequate storage on shelves or racks. Linen also may have been folded improperly before reaching storage areas.

    7. Shelf Time - recommended shelf time for linen is 24 hours for optimum flat dry results.

Check List for Stains:

    1. Overloading - no mechanical action, or the linen has been packed too tight for proper agitation.

    2. Improper Chemical Usage - the amount of detergent may be too small for the size wash load being processed, or the soil level is too high.

    3. Abusive Stains - these type stains are usually of three types: A. carbon based - grill grease - ashtrays, etc. B. silver polish C. cement stains Usually bleach will help salvage the linen unless stains are of above types.

    4. Softeners - we do not recommend the use of softeners. Most softeners coat the VISA linen making it waterproof and hard to remove stains due to this waterproofing action.

    5. Hard Water - chemicals that may be found in water make cleaning at normal detergent
      loads difficult. Some stains may be due to iron, calcium, which may be found in the water. Check with your chemical representative for this type of problem.
