It’s all in the storage
To ensure that your clothes retain their shape, you need to store them correctly. But of course to do this, you need to know how to store them correctly. As a simple rule of thumb: Wool is best folded, while it’s best to hang all other materials on a coat hanger. Because wool is relatively heavy and unstable, knitted jumpers tend to stretch out on a hanger and develop unsightly bumps over time. In contrast, lightweight dresses and dainty blouses quickly become creased when you don’t hang them on a hanger.
You vs. moths
How can you protect your wardrobe against the attack of the moths? We recommend one or two small bags of lavender that you can place between your garments or simply hang up in your wardrobe. Moths really do not like the smell – so this protects your favourite clothes from those familiar small holes.
When it comes to bags and shoes made of high-quality leather, you want them to last a long time. That’s why impregnation is a fundamental part of the care routine for all leather items. Nevertheless, leather accessories quickly lose their shape with frequent use. To prevent this, you should always hang your bags up properly and use shoe trees. You should also fill the bag with paper and ideally store it in a cloth bag. That’s how to keep your favourite items in tip-top shape for longer.
Microplastic? No, thanks!
Not only the detergent, but also your clothes themselves leave residues with every wash, which get into the groundwater, because synthetic fibres release microscopically small microfibres during washing.
To prevent the so-called microplastics from entering the environmental cycle, we recommend the use of special washing bags, whose extremely fine-pored material works like a filter.
Your machine needs the right setting!
If you can no longer avoid washing, you should wash at a low temperature and fill the machine well. This way you use less energy (and save on electricity costs). Smaller stains are also easy to remove by hand. Does your washing machine have an eco-setting? Great! Then use it. Although the washing cycle often takes a little longer, it is much more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. Alternatively, you should always choose a low-temperature programme.
And if you want to do something good for the environment, don't use a tumble dryer or wash your laundry at 1600 RPMs. This way you get more water out of your clothes and save energy in the dryer.
Dark jeans always release dye the first time they are worn & washed. Therefore, you should not let the come into contact with light-coloured styles. To retain the colour as much as possible, turn your favourite items inside out before washing them.
Our tip: Instead of washing your jeans in the washing machine, you can simply put them in the freezer for 24 hours – this won’t remove any stains of course, but it will leave your jeans smelling fresh.
Use the right detergent
In general: Powder and tablets are less harmful to the environment than liquid detergents. This is because liquid detergents contain more surfactants and place a greater strain on wastewater treatment plants.
The ideal detergents are those that do not contain colouring agents or additional preservatives, that effectively wash your clothes even at low temperatures and that are sold in recyclable are already recycled packaging. You should also use detergents sparingly: a small amount is enough.
Please don’t wash too often!
Sad but true: The quickest way to reduce the “shelf life” of your clothes is to wash them too much. Many fabrics don’t cope well at all with frequent washing. A much more gentle approach is to air your clothes out – this is usually enough to eliminate the need for a wash cycle. You should also wash at low temperatures as often as possible, as this is much better for synthetic fibres and wool.
Good news! Taking right care for your favourite Linen Styles is easy. The strong natural Fabric feels a little rough in the beginning but gets softer with each wash. Make sure to use a mild detergent and choose a low temperature delicate wash cycle. It is environmentally and product-friendly to let the clothes air dry, but you can also use the tumble dryer on low temperature. Remove the garment and hang it up while its still slightly damp. Still unsure? You can find more information on the washing instructions for your product.
There are many types of wool. Most of them do not need to be washed often. Sometimes it is enough to air or just to clean the stains. If you want to use your washing machine, you should first read the washing instructions on the care label. Use a hand or wool washing programme and a low temperature. A wash bag will help you to avoid loose threads. It is best to dry your garment flat on a towel, do not wring it out. Wool should be ironed with steam, this will help to restore the natural shine.
