The most sustainable way to shop begins with knowing why and how your clothes were made.
But the journey begins after you bring them home.

We're here to help you make it easy.
Because just like anything we love, our clothes deserve to be cared for.

 

How should I wash my #MadeRight piece?

Wash in cold water (best is handwash) and hang to dry — it’s better for the environment and reduces energy use in addition to being the best way to take care of your clothes. Actually, you might want to consider doing this with your entire wardrobe!

Step 1 – Turn your clothes inside out. Washing the inner part of your clothes to make sure that the part closest to your skin is clean.

Step 2 – Prepare cold water and soak your mild detergent (hand soap or shampoo works best as they are pH-neutral).

Step 3 – Put your clothes in and move it around gently to make sure the detergent enters the fabric thoroughly.

Step 4 – Rub it gently to remove any stain.

Step 5 – Squeeze to rinse.

Step 6  Put it into a clean water basin to rinse all of the remaining detergents.

Step 7 – Squeeze it again and hang it on the line dryer.

Tips:

  1. To avoid color-ins, stick to washing similar colors together.
  2. When you choose a detergent, please be mindful to these harmful chemicals: chlorine, optical brighteners, sulfates, petrochemicals, synthetic colors, phosphates, parabens, and artificial perfumes. We recommend using a natural ingredient based detergent.
  3. If you have to wash your clothes using a washing machine, make sure it’s fully loaded and use cold temperature water so that you’ll save both energy and water.
  4. We recommend line drying your clothes to prevent any breakage. A dryer can be harmful to your clothes and fades the colors out. Moreover, it consumes a lot of energy.
