We know that sometimes it takes a lot of effort to take care of your clothes. But sustainability extends beyond buying sustainably made pieces. The journey begins after you bring them home. By taking care of and repairing our clothes, we will contribute to minimizing our impact on the environment.

 

How to Hand Wash

Step 1 – Turn your clothes inside out. Washing the inner part of your clothes to make sure that the part closest to your skin is clean.

Step 2 – Prepare cold water and soak your natural ingredient detergent.

Step 3 – Put your clothes in and move it around gently to make sure the detergent goes thoroughly.

Step 4 – Rub it gently to remove any stain

Step 5 – Squeeze it to rinse

Step 6  Put it into a clean water basin to rinse all of the remaining detergents.

Step 7 – Squeeze it again and hang it on the line dryer.

Tips:

  1. To avoid color-ins, stick to washing similar colors together.
  2. When you choose a detergent, please be mindful to these harmful chemicals: chlorine, optical brighteners, sulfates, petrochemicals, synthetic colors, phosphates, parabens, and artificial perfumes. We recommend using a natural ingredient based detergent.
  3. If you have to wash your clothes using a washing machine, make sure it’s fully loaded and use cold temperature water so that you’ll save both energy and water.
  4. We recommend line drying your clothes to prevent any breakage. A dryer can be harmful to your clothes and fades the colors out. Moreover, it consumes a lot of energy.
