Fabric and care
When you wash cotton clothes for the first time, it can give off color. Therefore, wash the clothes separately the first few times.
Hand wash cotton in lukewarm water at 30 ° C, use little liquid detergent.
Do not over-dry a garment, but roll it in a towel to remove excess moisture.
Machine wash; do not set the temperature of the washing machine higher than 30 ° C for the first wash cycles. After, follow washing isntructions on label.
Do not let cotton dry in direct sunlight. Do you use a tumble dryer; prevent wear and tear by putting the laundry inside out in the dryer and do not set the temperature too high.
Cotton can be ironed hot.
Cotton can be stored hung or folded.
When washing cotton, always follow the instructions on the care label on the inside of the garment.
Wash silk with mild detergent or a mild baby shampoo without additional additives. Let silk soak in lukewarm water for about 3-5 minutes.
We generally do not recommend machine washing silk: it is best to hand wash or dry the silk garment. Use a laundry bag for machine washing. Silk can be washed on a delicate program with silk detergent and at a maximum temperature of 30 ° C.
Roll the garment in a dry towel to remove any remaining moisture. Gently squeeze the cloth without wringing. Dry the slightly damp fabric in the open air and lying down.
Silk is easiest to iron when it is still slightly damp. Iron inside out at the lowest possible temperature and without steam.
Silk has a self-cleaning capacity. If you really need to, you can rub two pieces of a silk garment very gently together at the level of the stain. For a thorough cleaning, it is best to take the garment to the dry cleaner.
It is best to hang silk clothing.
When washing silk, always follow the instructions on the care label on the inside of the garment.
Viscose can be hand washed without any problem at a low temperature, unless the washing instructions indicate otherwise. Always keep in mind that clothes wear out faster by washing it often. Viscose has a natural wax shrinkage of 4-8%. The shrunk viscose can be easily ironed back to its original shape after washing.
Viscose can easily be machine washed at a temperature of 30ºC. Wash viscose on a wool or silk wash program, using neutral soap or wool detergent. Place the garment inside out in a laundry bag to avoid rubbing.
To avoid creasing, it is advisable to spin briefly or not at all after the last rinse. Do not put viscose in the tumble dryer as it can shrink. It is recommended to dry while lying down: roll the garment in a towel and then hang it rolled out again.
If you want to iron viscose garments, it helps if the fabric is still reasonably damp. Do not set the iron to the highest setting, as viscose cannot withstand that. To prevent the outside fabric of becoming shiny, it is best to iron viscose inside out.
Viscose stains are best removed with a liquid detergent. Use the detergent directly on the stain and rinse manually or wash the garment in the washing machine.
Viscose is best hung.
When washing viscose, always follow the instructions on the care label on the inside of the garment.
Synthetic garments can be machine washed with a maximum temperature of 30ºC. Use the washing program for Easy Care, Delicates or Synthetics.

Synthetic fibers contract when they get too hot. Polyester has a great wrinkle-resistant capacity and therefore wrinkles little. If creases do occur during washing or drying, you can easily smooth them out.
Polyester can be hung or folded.
When washing polyamide and polyester, always follow the instructions on the care label on the inside of the garment.
