How to wash and care for linen
• Like many fabrics, linen clothes need washing less than you’d expect. Hang them up to ventilate between wears.
• Machine wash with a low spin at 30°C/86°F. High temperatures can weaken the fires and affect dyes. When hand washing, rinse with lukewarm water.
• Hang linen pieces to air dry. Tumble drying can shrink or damage the fibers. It also uses lots of energy.
• Take care not to use thin wire hangers or clips that could leave impressions or pull the shoulders out of shape.
• Linen can crease easily. Hang in the bathroom while taking a hot shower and use the steam to reduce creases.


How to wash and care for silk
• Silk shouldn’t be washed after every wear. Instead, hang silk garments to ventilate, away from direct sunlight which can damage the color.
• Silk is best hand-washed with a specialist detergent in lukewarm water, without soaking as this can release some dye. Rinse the silk garment without wringing.
• To machine wash silk, wash at 30°C/86°F or lower, on a low spin using a small amount of detergent. A mesh bag can help protect silk garments from snagging or twisting too much in the washer.
• To dry, lay the silk garment on a towel and roll up the towel to absorb excess moisture. Then lay flat on a drying rack or hang to air dry.
• To iron silk, use the lowest temperature on an iron, or for an energy-efficient method, simply hang in the bathroom while taking a hot shower. The steam will reduce creases.


How to wash and care for cashmere
• Cashmere doesn’t need to be washed every time you wear it – just a few times per season is ideal. Instead, air out your cashmere between wears. It’s better for clothes and the environment.
• When you do wash cashmere, hand-wash or use a specialist detergent on a gentle machine cycle at 30°C/86°F or lower.
• You should also use a low spin setting, as this will help prevent pilling and save energy.
• Store knitwear folded in drawers, as hanging can alter the shape, and make sure you use mothballs.
• Pilling occurs naturally and can be easily removed with a pilling comb or a fabric

Merino Wool:

How to wash and care for merino wool
• Merino doesn’t need to be washed after every wear, as the wool is naturally antibacterial and odor resistant. Hang garments to air between wears instead.
• To wash merino wool, machine wash at 30°C/86°F with a low spin.
• Using a wool detergent will help merino last longer. Avoid using fabric softener, which coats the fibers and makes them less breathable.
• Hang merino wool to air dry and reshape while damp. The heat from tumble driers can cause fibers to shrink.
• Pilling will occur naturally with wear. This can be easily remedied with use of a pilling comb or a fabric shaver.
• Don’t forget to protect your merino from moths!


How to wash and care for cotton
• Cotton can be machine or hand washed. To prevent garments from shrinking and to keep them looking their best, wash at 30°C/86°F,
• Place delicate items in a mesh bag to help prevent snagging or twisting during machine cycles.
• Pre -treat stains before washing by dabbing a small amount of stain remover on the area. For darker pieces, patch test on an inside seam to check the color won’t be affected. Hang cotton out to dry, as heat from tumble dryers can cause it to shrink. This also saves energy.


How to wash and care for denim
• You don’t need to wash denim and jeans all the time. A few times per season should be more than enough. This makes denim last longer and helps the environment.
• In between washes, you can spot clean surface dirt with a damp cloth.
• To wash denim, a gentle machine wash at 30°C/86°F or lower is ideal. There are also specialist detergents available.
• Wash denim inside out to stop the color fading.
• Hang out to dry, as heat from a tumble dryer could cause shrinkage. The weight of the denim will help to pull out any creases. Avoid using an iron as heat can weaken the fibers.


How to wash and care for wool
• Wool doesn’t need washing every time you wear it. Its fires have a natural protective coating, making it resistant to dirt and dust. Hang to ventilate instead.
• To wash wool, use a specialist wool detergent at 30°C/86°F with a low spin setting. Squeeze out any excess water for heavier garments, without wringing.
• Dry woolens flat on a rack, placing a towel underneath to absorb any drips. Hanging wool up to dry will stretch pieces out of shape.
• Fold knitwear and store in drawers with mothballs. The weight of the wool will pull the piece out of shape if it’s hung up.
• Pills occur naturally with friction and can be easily removed with a pilling comb or a fabric shaver.


How to clean and care for leather
• Leather can be spot cleaned with a slightly damp cloth.
• Keep leather supple and conditioned with a specialist leather balm. Apply a small amount with a cloth and buff gently.
• Hang leather garments to ventilate between wears, avoiding direct sunlight.
• Wooden shoe trees help keep the shape and slow down the creasing that happens with wear.
• When traveling and storing, roll leather garments to avoid fold creases.
• Softer leathers can scratch! Be careful with sharp items like keys.

•Polyester can be tumble dried on a cool setting and won’t shrink.
•To avoid wrinkles and static build up, remove the garments from the dryer while slightly damp.
•Polyester doesn’t tend to wrinkle, if ironing is required use a low heat setting.
•High temperatures can cause polyester to melt.
•When it comes to storing your garment, hang or fold the garment based on necessity.

Precious metals:

How to care for precious metals
• Avoid wearing jewelry when applying makeup, perfume or hairspray.
• Remove jewelry when bathing or swimming.
• You can clean precious metals such as gold and silver with warm soapy water and a soft brush. Make sure the brush is very soft otherwise it can cause scratches. Use a soft cloth to dry and buff your jewelry once it’s cleaned.
• Afterwards, polish with a jewelry polishing cloth for smooth surfaces. Avoid using tissue or paper towels as they can cause scratches.
• Rubbing alcohol can also bring back the shine but avoid using bleach as this can destroy the metal.
• Store your jewelry safely and ideally away from air (to prevent tarnishing), preferably in the original box.
• Do not store your jewelry inside leather as this can tarnish the metal.


How to care for Faux-Suede
If the mark you want to clean is already dry, first brush the suede with a soft brush to bring up the pile and expose the dirt.
Rub an eraser over the stain. Don’t rub too hard, as this can destroy the fabric’s nap and ruin the look of the suede forever.
Take an almost dry sponge and rub the affected area to remove even more surface dirt. Then, leave it to dry. If the stain is still wet, blot as much of the dirt away with paper towels, sponge a little water over the stain, leave it to dry, and then try the eraser method.
Finally, give the item a good brush.
As a last resort, use a minimal amount of white vinegar on a small fluffy towel and rub the stain in a circular motion. Only do this for a short time and keep checking the material as you are cleaning. If it starts to discolor, stop using the vinegar.
If the item you cleaned is a pair of shoes and they are in any way damp, stuff them with something to help keep their shape as they dry. Never leave a suede item in direct sunlight, as suede is very prone to fading. If you leave it out as it dries, you will find uneven patches appear that will never go away.


How to wash and care for Faux-Leather
Faux leather is very similar to Vinyl. This type of leather is easy to clean but you should avoid getting it too dry, cleaning can dry it up, so conditioning it afterwards is a good idea or just using conditioner to clean it is very safe and simple.

How to Wash Faux Leather Clothes

Detergent: Gentle detergent

Water Temperature: Cold to warm

Cycle Type: Delicate or hand-wash

Drying Cycle: Air-dry

Special Treatments: Condition to prevent cracking

Iron Settings: Low

  • Most stains can be removed from faux leather with just a microfiber cloth dampened with warm water. For difficult-to-remove stains, put a tiny amount of gentle detergent on the cloth, and lightly scrub the stain.
  • Faux leather jackets, leggings, or skirts can usually be hand-washed or machine-washed. The key to success is using the correct water temperature, detergent, and gentle agitation. If you choose to machine-wash the garment, place it in a mesh laundry bag for extra protection, and reduce the speed for the final spin cycle to reduce wrinkling.
  • Set the washer or fill the sink with cool to warm water. Never use hot water, which can cause the faux leather to become misshapen or even melt.
  • A mild detergent is best for faux leather. If hand-washing, add the detergent to the water, and swish your hand around so it distributes evenly.
  • Faux leather is usually the most soiled on the inside of the garment due to body oils. Whether machine-washing in a mesh bag or hand-washing, turn the garment inside out so that the detergent and water solution can reach the interior surface easily.
  • If hand-washing, swish the garment through the water, and squeeze gently. Allow it to soak for five minutes. In a washer, select the delicate cycle, and reduce the spin speed for the final cycle.
  • Rinse any hand-washed garments in cool water until no suds remain. Excessive detergent left on the faux leather can cause it to stiffen and crack. Do not wring. Always use a cold-water rinse in the washer. Do not add any fabric softener.
  • Never place faux leather in the dryer. Hang jackets inside out on a sturdy hanger and allow them to drip-dry. Skirts and pants can either be hung or dried flat on absorbent towels. Drying can take up to 24 hours. Frequently turn items that are dried flat. To speed drying time, wipe down the garment with a soft, absorbent microfiber cloth.
  • When the garment is dry, use a tiny amount of baby, olive, or coconut oil on a soft cloth to condition the faux leather. This will keep the faux leather supple, prevent cracking and peeling, and help remove wrinkles.
  • Most of the time, wrinkles in faux leather will smooth out during the drying process. If a garment is excessively wrinkled, turn the garment inside out. Place a pressing cloth over the garment, and use the lowest heat setting on the iron to remove wrinkles. Do not leave the iron in one spot for too long, or melting will occur. This cannot be repaired.
