Care Guide

Home Treasures’ linens have been expertly crafted using the world’s finest textiles. With proper care, you’ll be able to enjoy your linens for years (even generations) to come. We believe in livable luxury, so almost all our products can be laundered at home; however, please make sure to read the care label in each product for the best results.

Machine Washing

Machine wash your linens on a gentle cycle. In general, it’s best to use cold or warm water when washing fine linens to avoid shrinkage and excessive wrinkling.

Use a mild detergent. Never use fabric softeners, bleach or bleach alternatives, as these will destroy the quality of the natural fibers, reducing the longevity of your linens. Please be aware that certain facial creams contain agents that can cause permanent discoloration, so caution when using.

Pre-treat stains before washing by flushing with water and dabbing with a natural detergent. Do not use bleach, even on white linens, as it will weaken the fibers and cause yellowing.

Wash light and dark colors separately. It’s best to launder your linens separately from your clothing, particularly those made from polyester and denim, as well as those that have heavy zippers and hardware that can damage the fabric.

Embellished linens, including embroideries and lace, should be placed inside a pillowcase or mesh laundry bag before being placed in the washing machine.

Do not overload the washing machine, as this can cause unnecessary abrasion to the fabric.


Shake out and smooth your linens before putting them in the dryer to avoid additional abrasion caused by twisting and tangling.

Do not use dryer sheets as these artificially coat the fabric with chemicals that can alter the natural softness of the fibers.

Tumble dry your linens on a warm heat setting. Never dry on high heat as it will weaken the fibers and cause excessive shrinkage.

Avoid overloading the dryer so your items will dry evenly.

Dry your linens until they are slightly damp or just barely dry and remove promptly. Overdrying will lead to wrinkles being set into the fabric and difficult to iron.


Before ironing, please check to make sure your steam iron is clean. Mineral deposits may build up and cause brown spotting.

Use a steam iron on warm / hot setting for cotton and a hot setting for linen.

Spray with water from a spray bottle for stubborn wrinkles, if needed.

For Sateen and Jacquard fabrics, iron on the reverse side to restore the lustrous sheen. For Embroidered fabrics, iron on the reverse side on a white towel to preserve the raised effect.

Bed Linens

We recommend using three sets of bed linens in rotation: one on the bed, one in the wash, one in the linen closet. This will allow each set a rest from use and a rest from wash.

Wash matching linens (e.g. sheets and pillowcases) together, as each piece should be cared for similarly to help maintain color consistency and brightness.

Remove jewelry and watches, or other accessories that may damage fibers while sleeping. The added abrasion can break down the fibers over time, possibly resulting in pilling.

Wash off all makeup, sunscreen and harsh skincare products before bed as strong chemicals can react to the dye and damage fine fibers.

Bath Linens

Never use fabric softeners or dryer sheets when laundering towels as they reduce the absorbency of cotton fibers.

Do not iron your bath towels; instead smooth them by hand before folding and storing.

Table Linens

Wash matching table linens together so they wear at the same rate. This will also help maintain color consistency and brightness.

If possible, treat stains when they are fresh; as they set, they become more difficult or impossible to remove. Flush stains with sparkling water and dab with a natural, mild detergent.

To prevent crease marks from setting, store tablecloths by hanging on hangers.

Do not store your table linens in plastic, which can cause mildew or yellowing; instead cover your linens in cotton, linen or muslin.
