How to care for your Frugi threads

Helpful tips and tricks to keep your Frugi looking tip top! 

If you look after it well you can hand Frugi down from generation to generation and its resale value will be better too!


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

We know you’re in a rush… but if you can, please separate lights and dark coloured clothing before washing.

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


If you choose to use a fabric conditioner make sure it’s good quality and don’t use in every wash. Fabric conditioner isn’t great for natural fibres like cotton as it coats the fabric making it less absorbent.


Turning clothes inside out to wash and making sure they’re 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.  Top Tip: Pre-washing your Frugi tights inside out will increase their longevity.




Fuzz balls… Bobbling (also known as pilling) isn’t a sign of a bad quality product, it’s actually a characteristic of natural yarns and the garment just needs a little TLC to prevent them returning. If you want to, you can remove the pesky little balls by using a de-piller. Super satisfying!


Rough and Tumble 

When you tumble dry your clothes they rub together creating pilling. Whenever possible, hang your Frugi clothes up to dry rather than using the tumble dryer. This will keep the Frugi fibres stronger for longer.

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


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!


Don’t forget!

Always check the care label in each garment as different fabrics and products need different care and washing.

Stinks and stains
Beware of the banana! Did you know that banana stains clothing? If your little one is eating a banana make sure you wipe off any mess immediately as banana staining is almost impossible to remove!

    Hello, I just wanted to say how satisfied with your wonderful clothes, my grandson and grand daughter look so cute in them.
    The clothes are so hard-wearing that some of them have been handed down from my 3 year old grandson to my 1 year old grand daughter.
    Thank you Frugi xx
