How to wash cotton and viscose

Washing

Hand wash:

  • Sort clothing by colour
  • Look for stains, rinse in lukewarm water (about 30°c) and rub gently with a stain-removing solution then rinse again
  • Turn garment inside out
  • Soak in lukewarm water (about 30°c) using mild soap, do not leave more than 20 minutes
  • Agitate clothing by hand and rinse in lukewarm water (about 30°c)
    • Wring (without twisting) to remove surplus water then blot dry by rolling in a towel to remove excess water. (If the garment dries with too much water, it may shrink.)
    • Reshape the garment (technic called 'blocking')
    • Dry flat on a dry towel or on a rack (do not hang).
    • Many use the tumble dry low temperature technique, which is a good tip for cottons. After a good spin in the machine or by rolling in a towel, it is possible to spend 15-20 minutes. This gives shape and space to the stitches. It can be done after drying flat or before.

    Machine wash:

      • Turn garment inside out and place in a net washing bag
      • Wash on the gentlest cycle in warm water (about 30°c) using mild soap
      • Reshape the garment (technic called 'blocking')
      • Dry flat on a dry towel or on a rack (do not hang).

        Ironing

        Cotton knits regain their shape and softness well when given a little steaming iron. This removes creases and gives shape to the stitches.

          • Favour the use of steam to iron
          • No steam iron: Cover the garment with a slightly damp cloth to prevent the heat from scorching the the fibres.
          • Steamer: steam from the inside of the garment when it's hanging


          Storage 

          • Store your  clean garments in a container that allows air to circulate.
          • We recommend placing a sachet of lavender to help repel moths. (Here's more exemples of grains you can use that repels moths and have antifungal properties: lavender, pepper, Tea Tree Oil, Cedar, Eucalyptus)

          * It is important to never hang your cotton knits, especially cottons in larger gauges for a very long time, neither when drying, nor when storing them, to make sure that they keep their shape. *
