General washing guidelines 

Before washing all garments, we need to be careful and pay attention to the wash and care guidelines on the product label.
Generally, neutral detergents are recommended because normal detergents contain excessive whitener, we should always choose liquid detergents because they are softer than solid or powdered. The garments should be washed inside out, separate by similar colors and we should avoid high temperatures, they are always bad for fabrics.

The quantity of detergent in one washing is an important fact. Adding too much detergent damage the clothes, harms the environment and if the detergent doesn’t dissolve correctly, there may became stained.

After machine washing, it’s better to dry clothes immediately, leaving wet clothes in the washing machine for an extended period can damage all garments. During drying process we must avoid to exposure the clothes directly to sunlight and mechanical drying isn’t recommended.

Before iron the garments, we must to analyze the care guidelines on the product label and adjust the temperature to the fabric. It’s always better to use first lower temperatures first then high and for dark clothes is advised to iron inside out.
