Caring for your garments to extend their life is one of the most sustainable things you can do. Putting your organic cotton garment straight into a top loader washing machine with a strong detergent is not a good idea to achieve this. Therefore we have come up with some easy tips on how to care for your garments.

  • Gentle machine wash or cold hand wash garments. If I machine wash my garments in a front loader it is more gentle, and I always use a low spin speed.

  • To dry, gently shake out the garment and hang it on a padded hanger in the shade - this will minimise the need for ironing your garment later.

  • Use a mild detergent - we use Earth Choice, a liquid detergent that uses plant based ingredients

  • Avoid using a dryer (unless you are ok to shrink your garment a little).

If you follow these tips you will significantly extend the life of your garment :) If you would like more information feel free to contact us.
