Care for what you wear
Care for what
Coolstripe garments are made with natural fabrics that require specific care.
Here are some tips to keep your clothes looking new even longer:
Avoid overusing the washing machine
Each garment has a label with its own washing instructions. For example, delicate pieces must be washed at low temperature.
Use a natural liquid soap
It dissolves better, it is more sustainable, and you can find biodegradable options in the market.
Wash your clothes at a low temperature
Especially when washing delicate garments.
Choose short cycles
the garments suffer less damage and you get to save an enormous amount of water and energy.
Do you usually use laundry wash bags?
They are perfect for all those delicate pieces, especially if you insert them inside-out. You will soon notice the difference.
We recommend you lay the jumpers flat to dry, and then fold them before putting them away carefully without squashing them.
Shirts and blouses
Use wooden hangers for a plastic-free environment. Hanging your items leaves them feeling fresh and helps prevent creases!
They tend to be the item we use the most but least take care of!
It’s best to hang them and fold them along the pleat instead of the seam.
Every now and then, remove dust or pilling with a specific fabric shaver or wool comb.
Be careful with the iron!
Elastic fibres such as elastane and Lycra are sensitive to heat, yet we can protect them by placing a damp cloth over them.
Make the most of the good weather and air out your garments.
You may also use different types of linen products that gives them that extra sense of freshness!
Do not let stains set
You will avoid having to wash the entire garment.
