How to properly wash your clothes and linens?
Let him or her who is without white T-shirts turned pink or favourite sweaters shrunk down cast the first sock! Do you consider yourself a washing machine expert? Perhaps you are, but don't we all feel just a little bit worried when taking our laundry out of the washing machine? If you want to show your washing machine who's boss, getting mad or banging on it isn't going to help. Everyone knows that “separating” is the key word for avoiding unpleasant surprises. But you still need to know what needs to be washed separately. It's easy. Just follow our tips below.
Tip No. 3
be gentle with new clothing
Contrary to what you might think, brand-new clothing is not stronger or more resistant. We thus recommend that you wash new clothes for the first time inside out and at a maximum of 30 degrees.
Tip No. 4
turn your jeans inside out
Some jeans run, others fade. If you want to avoid any unpleasant surprises, don't forget to turn them inside out. This will guarantee that your jeans last a long time.
Tip No. 6
trust the label
Always follow the instructions on the label: it’s the best way to stay elegant. If the labels says that the item should only be hand-washed in cold water, take heed. It wasn't placed there by accident.
Tip No. 8
wash your washing machine
If you're used to washing your laundry at 30°C or 40°C, we recommend you let your machine go through a wash cycle empty at 90°C (without soap or fabric softener). This will sanitise your washing machine by killing the microorganisms present in the drum. We recommend that you do this every three months.
