Care Guide

At EFAAR, we're committed to offering stylish and eco-friendly clothing and ensuring that your garments have a long and sustainable lifespan. Here's a care guide to help you maintain the quality and longevity of your sustainable fashion pieces:

1. Wash with Care:

  • Opt for hand-washing your garments using cold water and mild, eco-friendly detergent whenever possible, helping reduce water consumption and preventing microfiber shedding.
  • Select a cold water cycle and use a gentle detergent specifically formulated for delicate fabrics if using a washing machine.
  • Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals as they can damage the fabric and harm the environment.

2. Air Dry Whenever Possible:

  • Line drying your clothes is the most energy-efficient method, and it helps preserve the integrity of the fabric.
  • If using a dryer, choose a low heat setting or air dry feature to minimise energy consumption and reduce the risk of shrinking or damaging the garment.

3. Iron with Caution:

  • Iron clothes only when necessary and use a low to medium heat setting to avoid damaging delicate fabrics.
  • For garments made from natural fibres like cotton or linen, consider steaming instead of ironing to remove wrinkles and freshen the fabric.

4. Store Properly:

  • Hang clothes on wooden or padded hangers to maintain shape and prevent stretching.
  • Fold knits and delicate fabrics neatly to avoid wrinkles and creases.
  • Store clothes in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent fading and discolouration.

5. Mend and Repair:

  • Instead of discarding damaged garments, consider repairing them or taking them to a professional tailor.
  • Learn basic sewing skills to mend small tears or loose seams, extending the life of your clothing and reducing waste.

6. Avoid Overwashing:

  • Only wash your clothes when necessary to conserve water and energy.
  • Spot clean stains with a gentle detergent or eco-friendly stain remover instead of washing the entire garment.

7. Choose Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products:

  • Use environmentally friendly laundry detergents and fabric softeners free from harmful chemicals and toxins.
  • Look for products labelled as biodegradable and phosphate-free to minimise environmental impact.

By following these care instructions, you can help reduce your environmental footprint and prolong the lifespan of your sustainable fashion pieces. Thank you for choosing EFAAR and joining us on our journey towards a more sustainable future.
