Please wash gently
Delicate cycles are shorter and gentler, causing a lot less friction.

Using a non-biological detergent (ideally a liquid) will help to keep your clothing bright and colourful.

Using a good quality fabric conditioner will prolong the life of your garment and help to keep it super soft.

 

Turning clothes inside out  to wash and making sure they are removed from the machine as soon as it’s finished will help garments keep their shape. Don’t mix garments with zips with thinner delicate items in the wash as these could make holes or pulls.

Sunlight is your friend

Sunlight works wonders on stains, the air and light act as a natural cleanser.

Fuzz balls… Bobbling (also known as piling) isn’t a sign of a bad quality product, piling is actually a characteristic of natural yarns and the garment just needs a little TLC to prevent them returning.

Avoid using Mr Tumble

When you tumble dry your clothes they rub together creating piling. Whenever possible, hang your Frugi clothes out to dry rather than using the tumble dryer.

It’s also much better for the environment…so get that whirligig out!

If you want to, you can remove the pesky little balls by carefully using a razor or a de-piller.

 

Iron all printed clothing on the reverse side.

And lastly….Beware of the Banana! Did you know that banana stains turn black and are almost impossible to remove from clothing?  Make sure you rinse any suspicious stains as soon as possible!
