How to Care for Your Louise Mitchell White Cotton Nightgown and Dressing Gown or Robe.

Louise takes an obsessive interest in the quality of the cotton supplied to her for her nightwear. It must be luxuriously soft but strong enough to be washed in a washing machine                             Luxury designer cotton collection

When you wear her cotton nightgowns, they feel like a second skin. The cotton fabric is light and finely woven. On hot summer nights her fine cotton breathes and keeps you cool.

You may find cotton for bed sheeting in some nightwear collections. This is a much coarser, thicker type of weave and far too tough for Louise’s luxury cotton nightwear collections.

Her cotton  must be white but not blue white or yellow white. Louise knows when this occurs and why it occurs. This cotton is rejected

Washing your Cotton Nightwear

When you need to wash a Louise Mitchell gown, you can put it loosely in a gentle wash cycle in your machine or machine wash it in a gauze washing bag. The bag is kinder and will mean that the garment will keep its newness longer.

Only use soft gentle wash powders in your machine.

Of course if you hand wash and hang up to dry inside your house or in the fresh air, this is wonderful for the happiness of your garment. Try not to tumble dry.
Stain Removal on White Cotton Nightgowns

The longer a stain remains, the harder it is to remove. Always treat it before laundering.

Care tricks for common stains                                                                            Luxury designer cotton collection
•    Lipstick - blot with baby wipes. They are excellent for removing stains yet gentle on the fabric.
•    Blood - blot with 3 percent hydrogen peroxide solution.
•    Oil - cover with talcum powder or baby powder immediately and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Brush it off, apply a stain remover such as Spray n Wash and wash in hot water.
•    Ink - apply rubbing alcohol and blot until the stain disappears.

Ironing Your White Cotton Sleepwear

Ironing is optional. These days everyone is busy and few of us have ironing ladies!

Louise hangs her gowns on a coathanger in her bathroom overnight . They drip dry and she does not iron them. Just the feeling of the soft cotton next to your skin is all you need for a restful sleep.

However if you want to iron, here are a few tips

Iron your cotton nightgown on the wrong side. In other words, inside out and when it is still slightly damp. This will prevent any finish on  the garment from being harmed. And will still give you a wrinkle free look.

Cotton can withstand high temperatures so use a hot iron. This is one of the factors which make it the most wearable textile in the world.
