Cleaning your table linens seems easy. Just toss them into the washer and they should be as good as new, right? Not so fast. Your table linens may seem to be clean, but in reality, they aren’t. This is especially the case for those reusing table linens for the holidays.
Keeping your table linens as clean and fresh as possible is very important. The cleanliness of your linens determines how your guests perceive you. Are you a professional and gracious host? Or are you a sloppy and uncaring one? As you continue to clean your table linens on your own, the whites of your table linens start to become more yellowish. If your table linens are colorful, they may begin to fade. The fading of colors and the yellowing of your whites indicate that your linens were not cleaned properly and are no longer fresh and crisp.
The only way to ensure that your table linens are fresh and crisp for the holidays is to take them to a professional dry cleaner. Only they can clean your linens professionally so that you always have fresh and cleaned table linens whenever you need them. Tossing them into the washer may seem the like easiest thing to do for quick and clean linens. However, doing so will ruin the quality of your table linens and ultimately, will ruin your guests’ perception of you.
Do the best thing by taking your table linens to a professional dry cleaner.
