Linen Tips

How to store fruit and vegetables

For vegetables that like to be wet, such as lettuce and celery, first wet the bag so it’s soaked. Second, rinse your vegetables carefully, remove any damaged areas, and then gently shake off any excess water. If you’re washing lettuce or greens, there’s no need to spin. Let your bag do the work! Third, store in the main compartment of your refrigerator or in a slightly opened crisper drawer. When the bag dries out after several days, re-wet slightly by running it briefly under the faucet, vegetables and all.

Do not wet the veggie bag for vegetables that do not need water to remain fresh, such as mushrooms, peppers, etc. Store them as you would normally.

Washing linens

Our linens can be hand or machine washed in cold water, hang to dry. Drier safe on cool. No Bleach! Iron while damp.

Removing stains from Linens

Some linens, such as our linen napkins and veggie bags, often require a little different treatment because of their close contact with foods that can stain. So, taking care of your linen will help make sure it lasts as long as possible.

Stains should be treated prior to washing following the recommendations for specific stains. One word of caution: If the linen has been dyed, some colours like khaki may not be completely stable, and stain removal products can change the colour. Always test a stain removal product on an inside seam or hem before treating the stain. Spread a dab of the stain remover on the seam and then rub with a cotton swab. If colour transfers to the swab, don’t use the product! Test and use another product instead.

Linen fibers can be weakened by chlorine bleach. Undiluted bleach should never be applied directly to the fabric, even if it is white.
