What is a kitchen product line without APRONS?
The Eat Less Water aprons are made from linen, one of the most sustainable fabrics on the planet yet represents less than 1% of all textile fibers consumed worldwide.
The ONE SIZE FITS ALL apron ties in the back and is available in three colors (blue water, grey river rock, and brown sand). The aprons are deliciously soft. And like all quality linen will grow softer with each wash.
They have a large front pocket and are pre-washed. Made in Lithuania by a small family business.

HOW TO CARE FOR LINEN
- Linen should be washed with cold water. If some heavy-duty stains appear, you can increase the temperature up to 60 °C / 140 °F. Washed linen production is highly resistant to shrinkage compared with non-washed linen however, high temperatures shouldn’t be used too often.
- Hand wash linen clothing using a gentle swishing motion, but never wring, twist or scrub the cloth.
- Hand washing is best suited for clothing that is not heavily soiled.
- Any stain gets more and more difficult to clean with time. So to reach the best result, make sure you clean the stains as soon, as they appear.
- Choose soft, neutral detergents for delicate fabrics. Avoid detergents with bleach (i.e. chlorine, peroxide).
- Do not pour the detergent directly on textiles; rather, add it to the water as the wash tub fills or dilute detergent with water, then add linens.
- Be sure that all detergent is completely rinsed from the garment before drying.
- You can only bleach white linen pieces. Do not bleach-colored items.
- It is recommended to use oxygen-based bleaching agents.
- Linen can be dried in a tumble dryer on a low temperature, hung, or left to dry flat on a white towel.
- If using a tumble dryer, take the linen out when it’s still damp and complete drying by hanging it or laying flat.
- Overdrying is the most harmful process for fabrics as it weakens the fibers causing shrinkage and pilling.
- Over-dried items restore their natural moisture content after re-absorbing moisture from the air.
- Iron linen while it’s still slightly damp.
- Use medium or high temperatures and steam. If needed, you can also spray some water on the fabric.
- Iron on the reverse side.
- Smooth and fold, or press with an iron if desired.
- If you like the natural, slightly crinkled look of linen, you can skip the ironing.
- Our washed linen production is highly resistant to shrinkage compared with non-washed linen.
- Pre-shrunk items normally shrink 3 percent or less.
- Do not wash or, especially, dry linens on a hot setting, which is most likely to cause shrinkage.
