Peele’s Master Classes showcase the most important elements of managing a luxury estate, including the proper way to inventory a wine cellar, etiquette classes and the art of private services on a jet. Catering to America’s ultra-high-net-worth-individuals means understanding every facet of luxury from caring for Frette Linens to serving a properly chilled bottle of Moet. Peele’s Master Classes aim to provide ongoing education for premier estate managers to stay on the top of their game at all times.

Here, Peele shares five of his top tips for caring for Frette Linens.

Washing

Most Frette fabrics can be washed in water and do not need to be dry-cleaned. Linens should be washed before they are used for the first time, as fine fabrics are not pre-washed.

Detergent

Dreft is the only detergent of choice for luxury linens. It can be hard to find in stores but Peele suggests ordering it on Amazon. Dreft leaves linens so soft they usually don’t even need to be ironed.

Drying

If you machine dry, only use low heat. However, Peele prefers to hang fine linens in the sun to air dry. In addition to the freshening effect and the lack of wrinkles, the sun has a natural bleaching effect on white linens.

Ironing

Use a high quality, heavy gauge steam iron – Peele’s favorite brand is Rowenta products. You can iron bed sheets and tablecloths while they are a bit damp, it makes it easier to remove the wrinkles and obtain a fresh and crisp look and feel. Avoid using starch sprays.

Storing

Make sure you know the proper way to fold linens, especially fitted sheets, as an organized linen closet is a must-have. Fold the linen flat, make sure it is not exposed to light, and organize by type of linen.

The most critical element of estate management is to flawlessly execute every detail with precision and extreme attention to detail. What the principals might not notice, Peele will, and he vigilantly oversees his staff to ensure the household runs seamlessly, or at least it appears to, which is why Peele is known as the savviest estate manager in Los Angeles.
