Washing instructions

All our garments are properly tested. Each of our garments has its own washing instructions, and it’s important to follow these. If a garment is always washed with similar colours and at the recommended temperature, it will stay looking good for longer. “Wash separately” in the washing instructions means that the colour of the fabric may run – for these garments, which may initially have a little extra dye, it is particularly important to follow the washing instructions. 

 

Pre-wash

Use the same amount of detergent as in the main wash cycle when prewashing very dirty clothes, but skip the prewash cycle completely for less dirty garments. Soaking garments is not recommended due to the damage which undisolved detergent can do to fabrics.

 

Detergent

Always be sure to use the correct amount of detergent – see the detergent packaging. Choose a bleach-free detergent which is suitable for the temperature of the wash.

 

Drying

Only tumble dry as a last resort – if you have enough time and space, hanging garments out to dry is recommended as this is better for your clothes. Smooth out the fabric and the seams before hanging up a garment. When tumble drying, the garment should never be completely dried, as this causes unnecessary wear and can cause shrinkage.
