Less is more and this certainly goes for washing your clothes. If your clothes are not dirty or smelly give them a simple fresh-up by putting them on a hanger and hanging them on your balcony or in your garden before your next wear.
If you remove stains immediately, this is more effective and might save you an extra wash. There are many natural stain removers available and they truly can work miracles.
When you do wash your garments make sure to use a program with a gentle cycle and turn your garments inside out before putting them in the machine. Never wash your clothes at more than 30 degrees. And always check the care label inside your garments for instructions.
We recommend using non-aggressive, preferably ecological washing liquid for your clothes. Soap nuts are also a great option.
Don’t tumble dry but air-dry your garments. This is not only better for the environment but certainly as well for your clothes. The less friction they experience from tumbling around a machine the longer they will last.
Dry your laundered knitwear flat so they don’t stretch.
Need to steam or iron a garment? Hang it in the bathroom with you when you shower. It will give a refresh as well as a light steam, potentially not needing the full works after.
Use a laundry bag for finer materials such as light kinds of cotton, viscose, Lyocell & Tencel ™. The laundry bag helps prevent the fabric to wear and tear during the wash.
