Woven Imitation Linen Fabric Can Be Machine Washed

  • Usually, before we bring everything home, we pre-wash them and then put them in the storage room or sewing room. So I won't forget to wash it! After returning home, it went directly to the laundry room.

    How should you pre-wash?

    Here are some general guidelines to help you get started. Usually, you want to wash based on the type of fiber rather than the fabric. When I prewash the fabric, I would rather treat it worse than the finished product. In other words, even if I don't plan to throw the T-shirts in the dryer, I might machine dry the fabric to shrink the fabric as much as possible. In this way, I don't have to worry about the possibility that it may accidentally pass through the dryer in the future, and hope to shrink it later by treating it harshly when it is not used for the first time.

    If you think the woven imitation linen fabric may bleed or release a lot of dye, you can press a wet white fabric on it for a minute to see if any color transfers to white, you can check in advance.

    For some fibers, I also add white vinegar to the prepreg to prevent the dye from leaching out of the fabric, but using professional products may bring better luck. (White vinegar is great for removing excess soap during washing. It also makes towels soft, so you don’t need to use fabric softeners.)
