Tissage Moutet Care Instructions
Machine washable. Avoid mixing synthetic cloth with cottons, as polyester can form lint and cause pilling. Beware of detergents with optical brighteners, which can change the colors of the cloth. Use alkaline-free soaps or detergents without any additives. (In France, Moutet recommends Marseilles Soap).
The use of fabric softener should be avoided, especially for tea towels, because it reduces the cloth's absorbency. Instead, try using a "shot" of white vinegar in the fabric softener dispenser. It is good for the linen and environmentally friendly.
Do not tumble dry. Remove wet to avoid wrinkles and creases. Dry flat or iron with a medium setting.
Bear in mind that fabric will shrink 5 to 10% upon washing. Absorbency and softness will increase with every washing.
