Washing at 30 Degrees will help keep the fabric of your clothes in good condition for longer as the fibers won’t break down as much. Wash with similar colours, turn your clothes inside out and wash more delicate fabrics together.
Use gentle eco friendly detergents which won’t be so harsh on your delicate fabrics.
If your garment is still creased, use a steamer rather than a hot iron which is harsher on your fabrics.
ITS BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AS WELL
Washing at 30 Degrees uses up to 60% less energy
Tumble drying uses approximately 4.5 Kh W energy per cycle.
Today scientists estimate that textiles produce 35% of the microplastic pollution in the world’s oceans (in the form of synthetic microfibers), which would make textiles the largest known source of marine microplastic pollution. That’s about 2.2 million tons of microfibers entering the ocean every year.
Therefore choosing natural fibres has never been more important.
If you do have synthetic fibres in your clothing using a guppybag will help stop the microplastics from entering the water supply.
The 2020 University of Plymouth study found that the Guppyfriend reduced microfibers by 54%.
Eco friendly detergents and fabric conditioners will help stop harmful chemicals from entering the water supply. Ethical Superstore carry a good range for all your laundry needs, and they stock Mudd & Water too!!
