To take care of your clothes it is important to wash and dry them properly, following the instructions on the label and selecting the correct temperature and programme on your washing machine.
Here are some suggestions to keep your wardrobe looking good for longer while respecting the environment.
|WATER IS A PRECIOUS RESOURCE, DON’T WASTE IT
Wash garments only if necessary. Often a few hours in the open air will often freshen a garment and allow you to wear it again.
|REDUCE ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION
Don’t wash clothing at high temperatures unless specifically indicated, remember that detergents are now much more efficient than in the past. Many detergents work from 40°C, using 50% less energy than a 60°C wash. Finally, when possible, dry your clothes on a clothesline.
|USE DETERGENTS CAREFULLY
Use the right amount of detergent, avoid the temptation to add more. Using the most suitable type of detergent, and the right quantity, you will not damage your clothes and will reduce pollution.
|RESPECT THE ENVIRONMENT
Dry-clean clothes only if this is the only possible option. This kind of cleaning uses organic solvents which have a negative impact on the environment.
