You need to pay a little more attention to how you wash your clothes not only to prolong their use, but also to help reduce harmful environmental impacts and protect natural resources. It is good to keep in mind that washing on high degrees requires a large amount of electricity, as well as drying in mechanical dryers. Our advice is to wash your clothes at the lowest possible temperature which can easily be done today, since modern washing machines remove dirt on clothes even at temperatures of 20 or 30 degrees. Use as little detergent as possible (best environmentally friendly one) and refrain from using a softener, since it not only harms the environment but also spoils most fabrics.
Our clothes are almost entirely made of cotton, linen, silk, tulle and other natural fabrics. Here are a few tips on how to take care of each of them:
Cotton is a natural fiber extracted from a subtropical perennial herbaceous plant, which is used to make clothes. Cotton products do not stack and are durable, pleasant for the skin and resistant to heat.
Cotton absorbs moisture and has high breakage resistance and is also easy to clean. Cotton fibers have a low level of elasticity and because of this they are easily being crumpled but the folds can be well ironed.
Iron up to 2 points on the iron.
Drying in a dryer is possible, but keep in mind the instructions on the label.
Linen (flax) is a natural raw material that is extracted from the long stem with cellulose fibers of the flax plant, and then processed on textile fabric in the form of a sheet. It is breathable and pleasant to the skin.
The low level of elasticity of the fibers leads to a tendency to fold the fabric, however, this effect is reduced by mixing with other fibers. Our caves are made of flax with woven cotton fiber in it.
Linen garments should not be centrifuged. In case you have used a centrifuge and the garment has lost its shape, smooth it with a steam iron (best on the outside) to restore it to its original appearance.
Smooth in a slightly humid state.
Dry cleaning is not recommended as well as a tumble dryer. Adhere to the instructions on the label.
Silk is an extremely delicate fabric, famous for its excellent wearable comfort, especially noble shine and natural free fall.
Silk can absorb a lot of moisture. However, garments made of silk should not be too tight, since silk is sensitive to sweat. At the same time, silk is gentle on the skin making it good for people with sensitive skin.
We suggest you hand wash it or use machine washing on a light cycle at a maximum of 30 degrees. Use a very small amount of liquid detergent.
Iron only at a low temperature considering that the water leaves stains, so use only purified ironing water.
Do not dry directly on sunlight because silk is photosensitive and the color of the garment can be damaged.
Please, keep in mind the washing instructions printed on the label.
Viscose fibers are pleasant to wear, fall softly, silky smooth and have especially durable colors. Clothing made of this material should not be centrifuged to maintain the stability of its shape.
Before washing the item for the first time, it is best to soak it in cold water, (viscose tends to shrink slightly). Wash at 30 degrees with a soft detergent that does not contain optical bleachers.
Iron from the inside out at a maximum of 2 points on the iron.
