How do I prevent wear and color fading of textiles?

You give your most loved fabrics the long life they deserve by taking good care of them. Washing as little as possible prevents wear and color fading. Enjoy your most beautiful garments, bedding, tablecloths, decorative pillows, etc. for an extra long time.

Clothes wear and tear caused by ironing and washing

With an iron, fibers of a fabric are crushed and wear out faster. By using a steam device, the fibers of a fabric are much less likely to be damaged.

Textiles also do not become more beautiful when you wash them (often). Research shows that a lot of washing shortens the life of your textile products. That has everything to do with soap, heat, lying around in the drum and contact with other clothes. The fibers of fabrics are affected, and fabrics become thinner and pilling, colors fade and clothes lose their shape. The CEO of Levi's explains that jeans should never be washed, because it is bad for the fibers of the fabric, the color and the fit. Even the CEO has his own jeans haven't been washed in the washing machine for 10 years .

Less washing and ironing is better for the life of your textiles

You should of course wash your underwear every day, but after that you can quickly stick to Stella McCartney's rule: " If you don't absolutely have to wash it, don't wash it ." For most clothes it is very bad if you throw it in the washing machine. The fabrics deform, the colors change, and the clothes wear out quickly. In addition, it is not at all necessary to always wash clothing / textiles. If there is a stain, you can of course also wash it out locally.

Use a handheld steamer

The specially designed pattern on the metal plate of the STEAM'R, in combination with the hot steam, ensures that the fibers of the textile are 'lifted' and are not affected. This process is comparable to the natural drying process in the (outdoor) air. As you can imagine, this is much less harsh (than, say, using a hot crushing iron) on the fibers of delicate fabrics. Using a handheld steamer is also super fast! Believe us, it is really a godsend for your busy life to always look well-groomed, fresh and without creased clothes in a very short time!

Last but not least: zorg beter voor de kleding die je al hebt!

Gebruik de juiste verzorgingsartikelen om je kleding te verzorgen. Stop je kleding niet onnodig in de wasmachine, maar haal er bijvoorbeeld eens een kledingstomer overheen om de stof op te frissen, of hang de stof buiten uit om te luchten. Gaat een stof pillen? Of zitten er pluizen op? Gebruik een textielborstel of pluizenverwijderaar om de stof nieuw leven in te blazen. Het hoeft zeker niet weggegooid te worden. Gebruik zachtaardig wasmiddel, zonder chemicaliën en schadelijke stoffen voor je kledingstuk. Zo gaat de stof veel langer mee!
