About Country Kitchen Linens and Things
Country Kitchen Linen Accessories is an ensemble of kitchen and home accessories made almost exclusively from linen. (Except that I love denim and cotton and so you will see a collection of accessories without linen for affordability purposes mainly. If one were to see an item they love and would prefer it made with linen I would be so pleased to custom make it. Linen that is environmentally friendly sourced. Why linen? Linen absorbs so much! The older linen gets the more it thirsts so it makes wonderful kitchen towels, napkins, dish mats, whatever! "Naturally" this makes linen a greener choice than papertowels and napkins. Linen is also naturally antimicrobial so it resists things like mildew and other odors. Linen is the healthiest choice of textile for your home. It is natural, anti-microbial, resistant to fungi, helps with irritations. Linen is very hard wearing. It will only get softer and softer (but not weaker) with every wash. Will last for ages. Thank you so much for browsing. Shop anytime. Custom orders are very welcome if there is any item you would like to order just ask and I will gladly make another if I am out. I would like to include washing directions for you to come back to as a reference. For the first washing it is ideal that you should presoak your linen product layed out flat in lukewarm water about 4-5 hours. Then proceed to washing. For the first wash, and all subsequent washes, wash gentle cycle warm water, (not hotter than 140°F). Non chlorine bleach. Hang dry and medium low iron while damp. Avoid the steam no matter how handy. Following these directions will ensure a long lasting beautiful product. Linen is tough and will likely survive any washing you throw at it. I usually bleach mine with my whites ????and it is surviving beautifully.???? But if you want your linen to "thrive" follow these simple wash instructions and your love will endure much longer with a happier linen that shines in it's joy!!! Also, as long as you are considering the benefits of responsibly sourced linen in your home consider the benefits of switching your everyday household cleaners to safer, environmentally friendlier, cost effective products that ACTUALLY work,possibly better than national brand caustic cleaners. Discouraged by some of the natural choices available on the market? Ask me where to find products that are truly effective, innovative and environmentally friendly. No safety caps required.
