To take care of your clothes it is important to wash and dry them properly. Here are some suggestions to keep your wardrobe looking good for longer while respecting the environment.
WATER IS A PRECIOUS RESOURCE, DON'T WASTE IT
Wash garments only if necessary. Often a few hours in the open air freshen a garment and allows you to wear it again.
REDUCE ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION
Don't wash garments at high temperatures unless specifically indicated, remember that detergents are now much more efficient than in the past. Many detergents work from 40°C, using 50% less energy than a 60°C wash. It also maintains the quality of the fabric. Finally, when possible, dry your clothes on a clothesline.
USE DETERGENTS CAREFULLY
Use the right amount of detergent; avoid the temptation to add more. Using harsh detergent tends to spoil the fabric. By using good quality detergent in moderation you will not damage your clothes and also reduce pollution.
RESPECT THE ENVIRONMENT
Dry-clean clothes only if it is the only possible option. This kind of cleaning requires organic solvents that have a negative impact on the environment.
