Please see below some examples of the aftercare symbols which would be placed on our care labels. The following guide is listed so that customers can understand the best aftercare option and ensure the product remains looking good for longer. By washing at lower tempretures, you are helping to maintain the garments lifecycle and also being helpful to the environment. Please see our wash sysmbols and benefits of washing at 30 degrees below.
30°C Fine Wash.
Washing cycle suggested for dark coloured garments made in cotton, polyester, or mixed fabrications.
30°C Mild Fine Wash.
Reduce the quantity of laundry so that the drum is not too full. Select an appropriate washing program. Avoid spinning or do spin for short periods only to minimise the risk of creasing.
30°C Very Mild Fine Wash.
This washing cycle ensures a much reduced mechanical treatment – by this we mean there is reduced agitation on the garment and reduced spinning pressure. Reduce the quantity of laundry and select an appropriate washing program.
Hand wash at a water temperature between 30°c and 40°c, depending on the garment. First, dissolve a fine detergent in plenty of water. Allow the garment to float in the solution and agitate carefully, before rinsing well. Press the extra water out carefully using a towel and reshape gently.
