The trousers should be washed at 30-40 degrees (too hot temperatures damage the fabric – colour fades quickly and the fabric’s fibres are ruined, making the material stretch too much), turned inside out, with the button/zipper closed.
If the clothes have separate leather tags, conditioners or excessive amounts of washing powder should not be used, the clothes should not be left to dry while completely wet and temperatures should be chosen carefully, otherwise the tag’s colour may be smeared on the clothes.
Cotton or linen materials are washed with temperatures of up to 60 degrees with programmes for mixed colours or delicates.
Woollen or mixed materials are washed with temperatures of up to 40 degrees with programmes for wool, or by hand. You should also use special cleaning products for wool clothes.
Expensive or easily felting materials that contain mohair, angora, vicuna, cashmere, etc. or products that are decorated with pearls, embroidery, etc. must be washed by hand with 30 degrees or taken to dry cleaning.
Tumble drying is not recommended as it makes it very hard to iron the clothes. However, light centrifuging gives volume to clothes of wool or mixture of wool.
You should never twist woollen fabrics! Shape your damp woollen clothing to restore its original size and shape. Cotton and linen clothing that tend to shrink after washing can be tugged to their original size.
Flat surface drying is most suitable for all knitwear, meaning that damp clothing will be laid on a special net or just a horizontal surface to dry. If the clothing is placed on the floor, table or other surface that does not absorb moisture, a good tip is to put a folded towel under the clothing. If you dry your knitwear on a hanger, make sure you choose a hanger of the right size and with round corners, so you will not get an unpleasant surprise in the form of additional “wings”.
Woollen fabrics or fabrics with mixture of wool that contain viscose should be ironed with temperatures that are no higher than 150 degrees, from the reverse side, and through a damp cloth or using a steam iron. Linen or cotton fabrics should be ironed with a steam iron with a temperature of up to 200 degrees.
It is recommended to keep woollen clothes, especially the larger and heavier ones, on a shelf, not on a hanger - otherwise you may find your beloved sweater stretched out and unusable.
