Care Guide

Care label for beginners
​​​​​​​It's not as difficult as it seems, we got you

In all honesty, we’ve all been guilty more than once to speed-reading the care label, promising a follow-up without actually coming through to that promise. Laundry often feels like a chore, and sometimes, you simply can’t be bothered. Let’s change that though, shall we? It only takes a second to prolong the lifespan of your pieces. Sounds like a win to us. Now, let’s help you along the way with a 101-symbol guide.

Washing symbols

Let's get started

The basics

1. Laundy basket with degree: Machine washable
2. Laundry basket with hand: Hand wash
3. Crossed laundry basket: Not washable
4. Circle: Dry clean only

Did you know

Degree: the correct temperature to wash.
Line underneath symbol: Gentle

- Spin at a lower setting
​​​​​​​- Shorter wash programme or delicate programme

Drying and ironing symbols

You're halfway through

1. Box with circle: Tumble-dry allowed
If crossed: Do not tumble-dy.
​​​​​​​2. Iron: fit to iron

Did you know

The number of dots indicate the temperature. The more dots, the hotter you can iron or tumble-dry your piece. No dots means you can choose any temperature desired.

Line underneath symbol: Gentle (delicate programme).

Your laundry care bible
Rules to live by

1. Don’t overfill your washing machine. Laundry needs space.
2. Wash your clothing inside out. That way, it will look better longer.
3. Separate by colour: whites, blacks, colours and neutrals.

When it comes to bright colours, it’s best to wash new pieces separately at first. Even the best products have a risk of colour bleed during the first wash. To avoid this, you can also fix the colour before washing by immersing it in a bucket of water with a dash of vinegar.

Hang your pieces after washing. This will result in fewer creases, and less ironing. Careful, this does not apply to knitwear and woollen pieces.

Knitwear manual
Knitted – and woollen garments

Woollen or knitted styles should always be dried flat or folded on a towel. Hanging them will cause the garment to lose its shape. These styles are delicate and therefore extra valuable.

Even the best quality of wool will pill to some extent. Luckily, this can be remedied with a comb, razor or electric lint remover. Make sure to do so carefully.

Stain removal
Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us

1.Try not to let stains dry, instead, treat them immediately. You can use our stain remover or when in need even result to ox gall soap. Softly dab the stain, allow to soak for a little while, and then rinse.

2. Yellow stains on a white garment are often caused by the aluminium in most deodorants. Try shopping one without or soak the stained area with a cup of water with a dash of vinegar. After rinsing thoroughly, your stain should be gone. If you’re feeling conscious about possible odours, we advise you to try our refreshing textile spray.
