General Information

Sort your clothes by colour and fabric before washing to prevent colour bleeding and damage to delicate fabrics. Read instructions on the labels of your clothes carefully and follow them to ensure proper cleaning methods. Use the appropriate water temperature for your clothes; hot water for whites and heavily soiled clothes, cold water for dark colours and delicate fabrics.

Use a mild detergent suitable for your clothes to avoid damaging the fabric and causing colour fading. Avoid overloading the washing machine to allow sufficient room for the clothes to move freely during the wash cycle for best results. Hang dry delicate fabrics and clothes with labels that recommend air-drying to prevent shrinkage or damage caused by excessive heat.

For garments that can be tumble dried, use a low heat setting to minimize the risk of shrinking and excessive wear. Iron or steam your clothes according to the fabric type to remove wrinkles and maintain a neat appearance. Fold and store your clothes in a clean and dry environment, protecting them from direct sunlight and humidity to preserve their quality and longevity.

Wool is known for its durability, but it requires special care to prevent damage. Hand wash wool items with mild detergent in cold water, or use the delicate cycle on your washing machine. Always air-dry woollen clothes flat to maintain their shape. Avoid hanging them, as this can stretch or distort the fabric.

Lurex Fabric
Lurex fabric is a sparkling, metallic material and to maintain its shine, hand wash it with a gentle detergent and cold water.

Cotton garments can be machine washed in cold water and dried on low heat. However, always check the clothing label for specific instructions, as some cotton blends or speciality finishes may require more delicate treatment. Iron cotton clothes when they are slightly damp to achieve the best results.

Knit Fabric
To care for knitwear, handwashing is usually the safest option. Gently soak it in cold water with a mild detergent, then rinse and lay flat to dry. Alternatively, use the delicate cycle on your washing machine. Cotton clothes when they are slightly damp to achieve the best results.

Silk is a delicate fabric that requires extra care. For best results, always hand wash silk clothes with lukewarm water and a mild detergent designed for delicate fabrics. Never wash with chlorine bleach and do not dry in direct sunlight.

Viscose Blend
The easiest, and preferred, way to wash viscose is by hand using a mild detergent, because it can maintain the quality of the fibre while saving energy. There's no need to use fabric softener because viscose is naturally soft. To maintain the fabric's texture, strength and colour, wash viscose in cold water. Avoid soaking silk for an extended period, and never wring or twist it. Instead, gently squeeze out excess water and lay flat to dry on a clean towel.

Linen Blend
A good quality linen lasts a long time, but in order to ensure they will last for their maximum lifetime, it is best to handwash or machine wash on a low temperature (cold or lukewarm) with a mild detergent. While it's true that linen is more likely to wrinkle than other fabrics, you can do a few things to help prevent wrinkling. First, avoid overloading the washing machine or dryer, which can cause clothes to bunch up and crease. Secondly, remove your linen from the dryer while it's still damp and hang it up immediately.

Garments that contain Sequins
Sequins (mainly made out of reflective bits of metals) sewn into jackets, bonnets, and dresses, can be machine-washed only if the item's care label allows for machine washing. Select the gentle cycle and cold water temperature and set the spin cycle on the lowest speed to prevent damage to the sequins. Add a gentle detergent, and don't use bleach or fabric softener.
