This is how to keep your favourite items looking good as new
It was love at first sight: Your new items and you were meant to be. But after wearing them a couple times they end up looking a bit less.. new? To keep your items looking good as new, they need a little extra TLC. These are our tips.
1. Listen to the care instructions!
Sure, we understand you don’t feel like hand washing every single item. But it’s important to listen to the care instructions, this will keep your items looking great. Are you the type to cut out all labels once you’ve bought the items? Make sure you save the care instructions and store them somewhere so that you can always check the instructions.
2. Pre select your laundry
Okay this tip might be a it obvious but.. wash whites with white, darks with dark colours and colour with coloured items. It’s also important to pay attention to your laundry detergent. This also plays an important role in your new items’ lifespan. As does the temperature, have got a batch that is quite filthy, try washing at a higher temperature. Towels and socks can be washed up to 90 degrees. Darker colours are different story, they last longest when washed at 30 degrees.
3. Inside out
To make sure that your clothes stay nice in between washes, it’s best to wash your items inside out. Also pay attention to whether all of the zippers are closed, hooks closed and buttons buttoned up. When you are washing delicate items such as silks blouses, it’s best to use a hosiery bag. Same goes for bras and tights… 😉
4. Remove you items from the machine in time
It’s best to remove your laundry from the machine as soon as possible. The longer you leave your laundry in, the sooner it starts creasing and the possibility of it starting to smell also increases. You’re likely to want to turn it back on again.
5. Leave your clothes to dry the right way
We tend to dry our laundry by hanging it on the clothing line and leaving it to try in this position. Some fabrics are best to let try while laying flat. Such items are woollen sweaters, these can stretch a lot and lose it’s shape. Which is a shame !
With these tips you’ll be able to enjoy your favourite items for even longer! In search of some new cosy items to make it though winter? Check out our new cosy collection.. 😉
