Washing clothes in an eco-friendly way is a great way to reduce your environmental footprint.
Here are some tips on how to wash your AS'FALL clothes in a more environmentally-friendly way: Since its creation in Switzerland in 2009,
AS'FALL produces its collections entirely by hand, using only the finest materials.
Wash in cold water: Most garments can be efficiently washed in cold water, which saves energy, as heating water requires a lot of electricity.
Use eco-friendly detergents: Opt for detergents that are biodegradable and free from harmful chemicals. Eco-friendly detergents are designed to be gentler on the environment.
Avoid chemical fabric softeners: Traditional fabric softeners can contain harmful chemicals. Use greener alternatives like white vinegar to soften your clothes.
Air-dry: If possible, hang your clothes to air-dry instead of using a tumble-dryer. Tumble-dryers consume a lot of energy.
Iron in moderation: Avoid ironing your clothes more than necessary, as this consumes energy. If you must iron, do it all at once to save energy.
Pre-treat stains: Rather than using chemical stain removers, try more natural solutions such as baking soda or vinegar to remove stains.
Invest in net wash bags: Use wash bags to protect your delicate garments, extending their life and reducing the need to buy new clothes more often.
Repair instead of throwing away: If a garment is damaged, try to repair it instead of throwing it away. Sewing, altering or mending can extend the life of your clothes.
Donate or recycle: When you decide to get rid of clothes, consider donating or recycling them instead of throwing them away. This reduces the amount of textile waste.
By following these tips, you can help reduce the environmental impact of your laundry routine while preserving the quality of your clothes.
