Always check pockets before washing! A tissue, a note…these things can ruin a great washing experience. Don’t forget to close all zips on jackets and trousers so that the sharp teeth do not damage any other items. Any underwear or tights should be put in a washing bag so that you don’t have to waste any time untangling them later on. (We recommend you wash most of your garments in a washing bag on gentle)
Don’t be tempted to fill your machine to the brim. If it seems really full, you should take 1/4 out immediately. ;-) Washing machines that are too full don’t give their best performance.
Wool can quickly become matted or shrink if you do not wash it correctly, which is why washing it by hand is best. However, if you still want to use a washing machine, only wash at a maximum of 30°C on a special wool or hand wash programme and use a wool detergent where possible. But be careful! You still need to watch out for detergents containing enzymes even when hand washing and do not rub too hard. Do not leave it to hang after washing. Dry flat.
Another tip especially for wool: Vibrantly coloured items should be washed separately the first time they are washed.
Viscose fibres wrinkle every time they are washed. The warmer the wash, the more the fibres become wrinkled. The surface becomes coarser and the silky smooth surface is no longer what it once was. Viscose items should therefore be ironed after every wash. Turn it inside out and iron with a damp cloth between the material and the iron. The fibres will retain their original shape and length if the maximum temperature indicated is not exceed and if they are not put in a dryer.
Linen always requires plenty of water from the washing machine. It’s best to only hall-fill the machine. The material shrinks slightly as soon as it comes into contact with water. But don’t worry, its shape will automatically return when you iron it.
Speaking of ironing, linen items should still be a little bit damp when you iron them. Alternatively you can dampen the material a little beforehand.
Beware of lime! Linen does not like hard water or lime residue on the iron. It leads to stains, so try to avoid both.
Very dark jeans always lose colour during the first wash or the first wear. That is why they must not come into contact with other light coloured items of clothing. The colour is best preserved by turning your favourite jeans inside out before every wash.
Always turn printed t-shirts inside out so that you get the most out of your item and the print. This applies to both washing and ironing.
The perfect look is one thing, but exactly how hard is it to preserve and what do I have to look out for? How is the item tailored, how does it fit, what material is it made from? –> You can find all this information in the online shop. Every item has a detailed product description.
