dirty are your work clothes really? Do they need that extra wash or is it
enough with a bit of airing between washes? Fair enough, if you had a full day
on a muddy potato field, there’s probably no other option, but make sure you fill
the machine before turning it on. It reduces the use of water, detergents and
electricity for each garment, reducing the environmental impact on every pair
of work trousers we produce
Extremely hot temperatures don’t necessarily give you a better result. Unless the clothes are extremely stained, we recommend 40°C. This way your work trousers will last longer, both regarding fibres and colour. They will survive an occasional 60°C if need be, even if we recommend 40°C.
Don't overdose detergent
Neither your clothes nor the environment benefit from overdosing washing detergent. Instead, it can cause bad smell, allergies, and unnecessary wear to the fibres in your clothes.
- Be quick! Easier said than done if the stain occurs at the start of the day but try to treat as soon as possible for best result.
- Don’t unnecessarily aggravate the stain or tear on the fibres by rubbing the fabric too hard.
- Find the right stain remover for your specific stain and pre-treat with the right product for best result.
Don’t tumble dry
The elastic material in the work trousers contains elastane which gives the trousers its stretch. The high temperatures in tumble dryers destroys the elastane which leads to your trousers losing their shape. In addition, just hanging your clothes up for drying has no impact on the environment.
