This is a question that comes up very often, which is why I'm taking the liberty of writing a short article on it.

If you take good care of your laundry, your clothes will last much longer and will not get damaged!

In the machine, clothes take on bad creases and become deformed by intermingling with each other. In addition, it wears out the closures. To remedy this, each time you wash, empty the pockets, close the buttons and zippers, and turn fragile textiles inside out.
Remember to remove the integrated belts, for example for dresses where there is a belt to tie, this will prevent it from getting stuck in other clothes when washing and tearing off the loops.


This applies to all clothes, not just those in my store.
For most clothes I recommend washing them inside out , avoiding the dryer or reading the labels carefully to find out if it is allowed. For fragile clothes, we recommend delicate washing at 30° if possible in a net or pillowcase.
Pay attention to the quantity of detergent used if you use too much the colors can easily fade.
To further protect them during the washing phase, try to reduce the spin cycle to a minimum (between 400 and 800 revolutions per minute).

What laundry detergent?

Powder detergent is well suited for white and/or very dirty laundry. Liquid detergent is best if you use low temperature programs and for colored clothes.

Sort the colors

The only way to preserve colors and white is to sort. A main principle, separate your laundry into three parts: the white (towel linen, bed linen, tea towels and tablecloth) which will be washed at high temperature (60°C); dark colors (jeans, shirts, underwear) on one side and light or medium colors on the other which will be washed at 30°C to avoid fading, with liquid detergent.

For black clothes

To prevent black from turning gray, use short programs at low temperature, with little detergent.

Don't overload your washing machine

In fact, there is no point in packing the laundry because it will not have room to expand in the water and will not be washed as well. Always leave a space, approximately the width of a hand, between the top of the drum and the laundry.

Tumble dry or air dry?

I recommend combining the two. Although air drying takes longer, it is the best way to dry delicate clothes.

It is best to avoid putting woolens, knitted clothing, nylon tights, textiles containing elastane, silk and underwear in them.
Bed linen, towels, tea towels, jeans, socks, cottons are clothes that you can put in your dryer.
Above all, do not wear leather or imitation leather or your coated pants!
The dryer, although very practical, is in reality the worst enemy of clothes. With each use, the heat and friction in the machine causes significant pilling and damages the fiber of the clothing.

Suede perfectos , sweaters and coatings

I recommend washing them inside out on a delicate cycle at 30° in a net.

Be careful with the first washes, the colored biker jackets can bleed, so remember to sort the colors.


If no one wants to spend on hangers, no one wants to ruin their clothes either. However, this is exactly what we do by hanging our most beautiful pieces on ordinary metal hangers. Those pants marked at the waist? Blame it on clip hangers that damage the fabric. So to put an end to these inconveniences, we finally make the decision to buy quality hangers. Our clothes will thank us.
Also be careful when ironing.

Sometimes hanging a garment well and avoiding ironing will help your garment last longer.

With these different tips you will be able to keep your clothes much longer without them being damaged.
