Washing
How to ensure an effective clean in a gentler way
Proper washing practices can help maintain the quality of textiles while reducing environmental impact.
Washing CarePage
Washing cotton
Cotton is highly absorbent, so products that are used every day, like bedsheets, sleepwear and towels, should be washed on average once per week at a low temperature. This prevents natural oils and sweat from staining and damaging the fabric.
Washing wool
Wool has natural anti-bacterial and odour-resistant properties that means it doesn’t need to be washed often, if at all. Typically, dirt and stains will lift off with a spot clean and odours can be removed by airing. If you do need to wash wool, do so by hand in cold water – no higher than 30°C – and dry flat.
General washing
— Avoid overloading the washing machine as this can cause increased friction and fibre shedding, plus a less efficient clean.
— Remove laundry as soon as the cycle is complete to reduce damp and creases.
—Mild, neutral detergents are better for the environment and will help preserve the colour and quality of the fibre. Use them in the recommended dose when washing.
—Avoid using bleaches and softeners as these can damage the fabric’s fibres. Towels should never be washed with softeners, as they coat the fibres and prevent effective absorption.
—Always wash light and dark colours separately to prevent colour transfer.
—Wash at low temperatures whenever possible. If a deeper cleaning is needed, an additional antibacterial detergent can be added for an effective clean below 60°C.
—Use a low spin cycle, around 800 RPM, to reduce friction and wear.
—Separate products with metal buttons and zippers from other items with a laundry bag to avoid friction and pulling.
—Remember to refer to the care instructions of individual items for more detail.
