Some tips for a perfect wash!
Always turn the garment inside out before washing. Before putting clothes in the washing machine, close the zippers and empty the pockets. Remember to sort colours into light, coloured and dark. Each of these groups should be washed with appropriate detergents
to help protect light-coloured clothes from greying and yellowing and to protect dark-coloured ones from fading. Clothing should not be washed in excessive amounts of washing powder or liquid.
To prevent shrinkage and maintain the appearance of the clothes, wash at low speed and at 30°C. Delicate fabrics and garments with sewn-on patches should be placed in a mesh bag to prevent possible mechanical damage inside the machine drum.
The optimum load is 75% of the washing machine drum capacity. Excessive loads will have a negative effect on washing quality. Things may not get washed and will be more wrinkled.
Stains should be removed before washing. The best way is to gently rub in a circular motion a small amount of soap or dishwashing liquid (especially if there are greasy stains) with lukewarm water.
Do not rub spots on coloured and dark clothes and knitwear, or you may get an unpleasant surprise!
Avoid warm water as it keeps the grease in the fibres. To dry, hang the clothes inside out in a lightly shaded place.
Never dry in full sunlight. Tumble dryers should be avoided if possible. Many materials can shrink in higher temperatures.
Remember about saving energy!
Today, many finishes are used to refine materials. They are one of the things that make your clothes soft, smooth and crease-free.
The finishes are also responsible for colour fastness. Remember, finishes are easily washed out in excessive heat.
