When your clothes need a wash, do not simply stick them in the washer as you might do usually; follow these guidelines:

  • Use a gentle cleaning cycle, and opt for an eco-friendly detergent; not only is that better for the environment, it is more gentle for the fabric too, and keeps everything as fresh, and clean as possible;
  • If you have any excessive stains, pre-soak the clothing in cold water before you put them in the washing machine (cold water only);
  • As with usual washing routines, separate light and dark colors and wash them individually.
