Caring Instructions

Ensuring your fashion items last longer is a key aspect of sustainability. Here are some tips to help you care for your clothes in an eco-friendly way, extending their life and reducing environmental impact: 

  1. Wash Less Frequently: Avoid washing your clothes after every wear unless they are visibly dirty or have an odor. Washing less frequently saves water, energy, and reduces wear and tear on the fabric. 

  2. Use Cold Water: When you do wash your clothes, use cold water. Cold water is gentle on fabrics and helps prevent colors from fading. It also saves energy compared to washing with hot water. 

  3. Choose Eco-Friendly Detergents: Opt for biodegradable, phosphate-free detergents. These are less harmful to the environment and gentle on your clothes. 

  4. Air Dry Whenever Possible: Drying clothes in a dryer can cause shrinkage and weaken fibers over time. Air drying is a much gentler option. Hang clothes on a line or drying rack to naturally air dry. 

  5. Wash Full Loads: Run the washing machine only when you have a full load. This maximizes efficiency, reducing water and energy consumption. But also don’ t overload the machine, this again is contra productive as clothes won’t get completely clean and would have to be washed another time.  

  6. Spot Clean When NeededFor minor stains, spot clean instead of washing the entire garment. This reduces the number of washes and helps maintain the fabric's integrity. 

  7. Store Clothes Properly: Proper storage can extend the life of your clothes. Use padded hangers for delicate items, fold heavy knitwear to prevent stretching, and keep clothes in a cool, dry place to avoid mold and mildew. 

  8. Repair Rather than Replace: When your clothes get damaged, consider repairing them instead of buying new ones. Simple fixes like sewing on a button or mending a small tear can extend the life of your garments significantly. 

  9. Avoid Ironing: Ironing can weaken fibers and cause them to break down faster. If you need to remove wrinkles, consider using a steamer or hanging the clothes in the bathroom while you shower to let the steam do the work. 

  10. Use a Garment Bag for Delicates: When washing delicate items, use a garment bag to protect them from getting tangled or damaged in the washing machine. 

  11. Rotate Your Wardrobe: Give your clothes a break by rotating them regularly. This prevents overuse of certain items, allowing them to rest and maintain their shape. 


By following these sustainable care instructions, you can help ensure your fashion items last longer, reducing waste and your environmental footprint.
