Wash & Care
Wash & Care
Taking care of your clothes will keep them looking good and fresh for longer. The following instructions will help you prolong the life of your cotton clothes.
- Water is precious. Wash garments only when necessary. Airing it after every use will keep them fresh for use, a couple of times.
- Wash our garments by hand. Do not put them in a washing machine or dryer. All our cottons are either handloom woven or hand-block printed. Moderate shrinkage may be expected. Some dyes like indigo may shed excess colour. Therefore it is advised that you wash the clothes carefully by hand.
Sort clothes colour-wise. Wash only similar coloured garments together.
Put a small quantity of mild detergent in a half-filled bucket of cold water. Soak the garment in the soapy solution for five minutes. Do not soak for a longer duration. Pre-soaked garments must be washed immediately.
The soiled areas can be rubbed gently by hand. Do not use a solid bar of soap or a brush. Rinse the garment a few times in cold water to remove the detergent completely.
A final dip in a diluted solution of liquid starch will render a crisp finish to the garment. Do not wring too much.
Drying your clothes under the sun causes colour-fading. Therefore, hang them out to dry in the evenings or in shade. Garments should be hung straight to dry on rust- proof hangers (either plastic or wooden).
Do not iron directly on block-prints, embroidery, etc. Such clothes should be turned inside out and ironed lightly.
Store garments in a cool, dry, place protected from sunlight. Keep whites and light coloured garments away from the darker coloured ones.
