Keep the washing of your cotton garments to a minimum. Washing it too much will cause the fabric to break and tear.
Stains should be treated before the garment is washed.
Loading your washing machine to the brim might seem like the most responsible way to wash garments. But, by doing so, you risk damaging the products inside. So, fill your machine but make sure not to overload it.
30 degrees is often enough to clean cotton garments, but make sure to always consult the care label. Remember that the listed temperature is the highest and not the recommended temperature.
Hang your garment out to dry to protect your garment and save energy. Tumble-drying can lead to the garment shrinking, tearing and breaking.
Make sure it is put into the intended shape before it is hung up to dry.
The ideal way to store a product depends on the fabric. Delicate woven fabrics or heavy knitwear are best folded. More robust products will benefit from being stored hanging.
Iron & steam
If possible, avoid ironing your cotton product. If it is very wrinkled, use a low heat setting while it is still damp. Steaming can also be a gentle way to remove wrinkles.
Always check the care label to see the correct heat setting.
Always treat the garment before washing, for the best chances of removing the stain.
Not all stains were created equally, and the best treatment always depends on the specific of stain. Therefore, we recommend that you always consult the internet before treating the stain.
Resist the urge to rub the stain, as this will only make matters worse and damage the fabric.
Please make good use of your product. Use it, and use it a lot, for as many years as absolutely possible.
Repair it if it gets damaged and take it to a tailor if it doesn’t fit you anymore. Please don’t throw out your product. Fabric is a valuable resource that should not be wasted.
If you reach a point where you do not wish to use the product anymore, we ask that you sell it, donate it, bring it to a take-back station or repurpose its fabric in a creative project.
