The first reflex to have is to check the instructions on the care label.
If the symbols look like hieroglyphs to you, go here. ^^
For all our clothes, we recommend that you wash them only when necessary. Machine washings contribute to the wear and tear of materials, closures, Velcro, zippers and other finishes.
They are also large consumers of water and energy. It is estimated that laundry water is responsible for more than a third of the plastic micro-particles found in the oceans.
To limit to aggravate this last observation, we advise the use of these filtering washing bags: Guppyfriend Washing Bag.
For machine washing, a temperature of 30 °C is in most cases sufficient and less energy consuming.
A slow spin (600 rpm) limits wear and tear on the garments and preserves colors and the properties of the technical materials.
Spread your clothes outdoors and if possible outside. Turn colored clothing inside out to prevent fading. Avoid leaving them in the washing machine for too long.
We do not recommend tumble drying, which wears out the products prematurely and uses energy.
Fabric softener makes fabrics softer but uses a waxy material that is deposited on the surface of the garment.
This can degrade the breathable/quick-drying effect, reduce the life span of the elastane or loosen the heat-sealed seams in our technical garments.
