Practical Tips

    Prevent colours from fading…

    When washing by hand, make sure the detergent is properly dissolved before inserting the garment. Wash with other garments of similar colours, as the dye may get into the water.

    Remember to empty pockets before machine washing.Must use cold water when adding in bleach and soak for a maximum of one hour. Do not use iron, copper or brass bowls.

    Do not expose to sunlight directly when drying.

    Tips for a perfect wash…

    Not necessary to wash clothes at the maximum temperature setting indicated.
    Do not rub garments, simply rinse gently.
    Do not use fabric conditioners with 100% cotton, as this reduces their absorbency.

    Dry your clothes perfectly…

    Wrap knitted items in a towel and allow them to dry flat.
    Do not hang knitted items or expose to sunlight and heat directly.
    Do not dry synthetic fabrics in direct sunlight.

    Things to be ware of when ironing…

    Follow temperature settings indicated on the labels.
    Ironing is easier when the garments are still slightly damp.

    Remove any fabrics that may have stuck to the iron plate by using a dampy cloth, before the iron cools.
