When it comes to garments, caring for them is extremely important. A well cared garment will last much longer compared to a mistreated one.
The best way to maintain our garments is to separately soak them in cold water with a mild detergent for less than 5 minutes, followed by gentle rubbing through hands (without brush) and drying them inside out in shade.
You can choose to dry clean them after multiple usage.
The guide below will tell you everything you need to do to maintain your garment for a longer time.
- Hand Wash in cold water (Rinse only if machine wash)
- Tumble dry at low heat
- Dry in shade
- Do not bleach
- Steam Iron on Damp Fabric
Treat stains right away. Stains are easier to remove when they haven’t set into the fabric. Spread a mild detergent over the stain, gently rub it across and wash in cold water.
Wash Less. Washing garments too often can actually cause damage to the fibres and hence decrease the lifespan. Airing them after every use will keep them fresh for use, a couple of times.
Close zippers and other fasteners before washing. This will prevent snagging and breakages.
Natural-dyed colours might bleed during the first few washes or rub against the skin & other light-coloured garments. In the artful process of dying, embroidery work and stitching, variations are likely to come into existence. These irregularities are the hallmark of all handmade products and give each style a unique identity.
