 Good wash and care advices to make your clothes last for a long time

 

CHOOSE THE CORRECT WATER TEMPERATURE: IF THE CARE LABEL SAYS 40 DEGREES, IT DOESN´T MEAN YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO WASH AT 40 DEGREES. IT JUST MEANS THE MAXIMUM SUITABLE TEMPERATURE. IT´S A REALLY GOOD IDEA TO LOWER THE TEMPERATURE, WHEN WASHING YOUR CLOTHES. YOU WILL SAVE MONEY ON YOUR ELECTRICITY BILL AND LOWER THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT WHEN YOU WASH AT 30 DEGREES. YOUR CLOTHES WILL ALSO KEEP THE COLOURS FOR A LONGER TIME AND WILL BE LESS WORN. TODAYS WASHINGMACHINES ARE PRODUCED TO WASH CLEAN AT LOW TEMPERATURES. 

DON´T WASH TO OFTEN: REMOVE STAINS BY HAND AND HANG YOUR CLOTHES OUTSIDE IN THE FRESH AIR FOR A MOMENT AFTER WEARING. 

DON´T USE A TUMBLE DRYER: BY HANG DRYING YOUR CLOTHES YOU WILL SAVE ENERGY AND YOUR CLOTHES WILL KEEP THE COLOURS AND LAST LONGER. 

DON´T IRON TO OFTEN: TAKE YOUR CLOTHES OUT OF THE WASHINGMACHINE RIGHT AWAY AND LET IT HANG DRY. TAKE YOUR CLOTHES WITH YOU INTO THE BATHROOM WHEN YOU SHOWER. HANG IT ON A COAT-HANGER AND THE STEAM IN THE ROOM WILL SMOOTH THE FABRIC. 

DRY CLEANING: BE SURE TO PICK A "GREEN" DRY CLEANER. 

HAND WASHING: MAKE SURE THE WASHING POWDER IS PROPERLY DISSOLVED IN THE WATER. IF NOT YOU´LL RISK DESTROYING THE COLOURS OF YOUR CLOTHES. WASH RIGHT AWAY - DON´T LEAVE THE CLOTHES IN THE WATER FOR A WHILE. RINSE THOROUGHLY WITH COULD WATER. DON´T TWIST YOUR CLOTHES BUT SQUEEZE WITH CAUTION TO GET THE WATER OUT OF THE CLOTHES. 

SOFTENER: DON´T USE IT. IT´S NOT NECESSARY AND IT IS POLLUTING. 

WASH BAG: USE IT FOR CLOTHES WITH MANY DETAILS SUCH AS ZIPPERS AND BUTTONS. IT WILL PROTECT YOUR CLOTHES AND WASHINGMACHINE. 

SOAP: USE THE RIGHT SOAP. ESPECIALLY THE RIGHT SOAP FOR SILK IS IMPORTANT. SILK CAN BE DAMAGED BY THE WRONG SOAP. 

STORAGE: KEEP YOUR CLOTHES IN A CLOSET AND DON´T LET IT HANG IN THE SUN OR NEAR A WINDOW. SUNLIGHT CAN FADE THE COLOURS OF YOUR CLOTHES.
