If you have LES the brand clothing hanging in your wardrobe, you’ve likely fallen in love with the beautiful, delicate fabrics. To ensure that your favorite garments last as long as possible and always look like new, it’s essential to properly care for them. In this blog post, we’ll share useful tips and tricks for keeping your clothing in top condition.
1. Handwashing: the golden rule for delicate clothing
We highly value the quality of our fabrics, which is why we recommend handwashing our clothing whenever possible. Fill a basin with lukewarm water and mild detergent. Soak the garments and gently agitate them to remove any dirt. Rinse thoroughly and gently squeeze out the excess water without wringing. Lay the garments flat or hang them to dry, away from direct sunlight.
2. Machine Wash: opt for the most delicate settings
If you don’t have the option for handwashing, it’s important to use the most delicate settings on your washing machine. Select the handwash or the shortest and gentlest program with the lowest temperature. Place the clothing inside out in a mesh laundry bag to reduce friction and provide protection. Use a mild detergent suitable for delicate fabrics.
3. Tackling Wrinkles: steaming and ironing on low heat
To remove wrinkles from your clothing, we recommend steaming. Steamers are gentle on delicate fabrics and prevent direct contact with a hot iron. If you don’t have a steamer, you can cautiously iron the garment on the lowest heat setting. Always place a cotton cloth or ironing paper between the iron and the fabric to prevent damage.
4. Stain Removal: handle with care
Treating stains on delicate clothing requires caution. Use a mild stain remover or create a paste with baking soda and water to pre-treat stains. Apply the mixture gently to the stain, let it sit for a while, and rinse thoroughly before washing the garment.
5. Storage: protecting your delicate clothing
To safeguard your LES the brand clothing when not in use, it’s important to store them correctly. Hang delicate items on wooden or velvet hangers to prevent them from losing their shape. Store them in garment bags or a closet that protects against dust, moisture, and sunlight.
Caring for delicate clothing requires attention and care. By following the recommended handwashing or machine washing settings and opting for steaming or ironing on low temperatures, you can ensure your garments always look like new. By treating them with care, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite items for longer.
