Most of our pieces are made with recycled fabrics, which can make them more delicate and require greater attention and care, in order to guarantee their durability for many, many years =)
So here are some great tips:
FIRST OF ALL, THINK IF THE WASHING IS NECESSARY
Are your clothes really dirty?
We are used to wearing clothes once and throwing them straight into the washing machine, when washing is often not necessary. If this is the case, hang your garment inside out on a hanger and leave it in a cool place for a few hours. That's it, that's enough to remove light odors and be able to use it again!
Reducing the number of washes you increase the durability of your clothes and also save water!
If washing is really necessary, follow the next tips.
ALWAYS PREFER HAND WASHING
This way you prevent your clothes from being damaged by the washing machine.
Always use cold water and opt for natural soaps. The use of chemicals harms not only the environment but also your health.
IF YOU NEED TO USE THE WASHING MACHINE
Choose your machine's delicates cycle option and, if possible, place the items inside those washing bags.
AVOID USING CHEMICALS
Chemical products, such as stain removers, are aggressive to your clothes, causing them to fade and attacking their fibers, reducing their life cycle.
WHEN YOU USE THE IRON...
Keep the iron at the lowest temperature, never exceed 110 degrees and avoid using steam.
So you avoid burning your clothes and also save energy!
AVOID THE DRYER
It can shrink or warp your clothing.
After washing, let it dry in the shade and in a cool place.
If possible, leave the garment to dry lying down and do not use clothespins to avoid unwanted marks.
Always store your clothes in a clean, dry place, protected from dust or other dirt.
On a day-to-day basis, avoid friction with rough or pointed surfaces, avoiding the fabric abrasion.
