6 Washing & Caring Rules for Eco-Friendly Laundry
Sort & Separate
Dark clothes, light-colours and whites should all be washed separately.
Dry Cleaning / Hand Washing
We recommend to dry clean our products to prolong it´s life longer, especially the ones that have trims and intricate details. Otherwise, hand washing with a mild detergent is also an option. When hand washing, do not rub the fabric together as it will cause a white strain if done incorrectly.
Gentle Machine Washing
This is only recommended for garments with simple silhouettes. Make sure you put them into wash protection bags before they go in your machine. Make 30°C or Hand Wash settings as your standard option.
Forget about tumble drying. Tumble drying has a high energy consumption and high risk of shrinking clothes. Luckily, most garments last longer if they can air dry.
When hang drying, first wrap your garment gently in a towel to let the towel absorb the excessive water. Never twist or wring the garment as it will break the fiber.
Do Not Bleach
Do not use bleach. Once you find stains on your clothes, pre-treat immediately.
For tough stains like oil, dab an amount of cornstarch or talcum powder or plain white chalk. Let it absorb the oil and brush it off with a clean white cloth.
Make sure you don’t scrub stains because that can be hard on the fibers.
Wash your garment immediately after the pre-treatment to avoid getting a visible water stain.
Steaming vs. Ironing
Know the difference on when to steam or iron a garment.
It is best to use a steamer if the fabric is thin or silky and or if it has delicate fabric details. I will recommend using a steamer on our dresses and tops.
Ironing is best on thicker garments and/or if there is a crease line on pants, for example. Set the iron on 148°C or on “Wool” or “Silk” settings.
You can also mix both methods simultaneously in order to achieve the best result.
