Caring for your cotton

No 20/79

Cotton withstands most and can be washed, dried and heated without too much worry.

How to:

Keep light garments bright by pre-treating stains in areas such as under arms, necklines and cuffs. But avoid bleach, it's tough on the fabric and bad for the environment. Instead, try lemon juice (for stains) or vinegar (gets rid of smell).

The care label tells you how to best keep your favourites safe from harm, make sure you read it. Please consider the environment when washing - colder water saves energy.
