Garment Care
For the sake of the environment and your clothes, we would like to share with you some garment care and laundry advice.
 
Sorting
Sort garments by colour and given washing temperatures. A coloured garment that’s meant to be washed hot can release excess dye if washed warm or by hand. It isn’t always better to choose a lower washing temperature.
 
Detergent
Detergent with an eco-label is less harmful to the environment. Do not use too much! Too much detergent does not give better results. The excess may remain in the clothes and cause skin irritation. Measure out the detergent according to the instructions on the packet. It’s important to know whether the water in your area is hard (use more detergent) or soft (use less detergent). Call your local water authority if you’re not sure. Do not use detergent with optical whitening or bleaching agents on coloured garments, this is because the colours may fade.
 
Fabric softener
Fabric softener is not only an unnecessary expense; it also contributes to needless environmental impact.
 
Fill your washing machine!
It is always best to fill your washing machine. If you need to wash small quantities, it is particularly important to use an energy-saving cycle, which most modern washing machines have.
 
Wash temperature
Sort your clothes by colour and always follow the temperature instructions on the garments. The dye in a coloured garment that is supposed to be washed in hot water could run if it is washed in warm water or by hand. It is not always better to select a lower temperature.
 
Hand wash only
Dissolve the detergent carefully in the water before you add the garment. Avoid soaking. Squeeze the garment in the water, don't rub or wring. Rinse carefully.
 
Dry-cleaning
For some of our garments we recommend dry-cleaning. The reason for this may be that the clothes contain details or materials such as colour blacks, ribbons or acetate linings that may discolour or shrink if washed in water.
 
Drying
To maintain the garment's original look it is important to notice whether it can be tumble dried or not. Never tumble dry garments that cannot take tumble-drying! If you choose to dry your garments in a drying cupboard you have to make sure that the temperature does not exceed the one given on the care label. Heavy knits should be reshaped and dried flat. Drying your clothes in a tumble dryer or drying cupboard uses a lot of energy. It is therefore important to spin your clothes thoroughly before drying them. It is best to dry your clothes at room temperature if possible.
 
Give your clothes away!
When you no longer want your clothes, donate them to an organisation that gives them to the needy. This prolongs the life of the clothes.
