Our Laundry Tips



  • General Care

    1. Sort the clothes by type of fabric (cotton, wool, silk, synthetic, etc.) so that you can easily select the best washing and ironing settings.
    2. Empty pockets, remove belts, jewelry and other accessories before storing or washing to prevent damage or bulging on the garments.
    3. If washing the garment for the first time, make sure to remove any labels or tags on the garment.
  • Washing Cotton

    1. Cotton is ideal for washing machines.
    2. To make ironing easier use Sta-Soft® fabric conditioner. (Try Sta-Soft Complete range which has an easy-ironing benefit)
    3. If the fabric contains cotton plus other fabrics, wash according to most delicate fabric.
  • Washing Silk, Viscose and Crepe

    Silk and rayon are soft and delicate fabrics that require special care. Here are our tips:

    1. Do not spin-dry or wring silk or viscose items.
    2. Wrap the garments in cloth and "knead" until the excess water is removed.
    3. Preferably hand wash with detergent and warm water. Some silk garments allow machine washing at low temperatures, check the label.
    4. Lay out flat and iron when garment is still damp.
    5. Iron at low temperatures, preferably when slightly damp or inside out to prevent it from looking shiny.
    6. Do not splash water on this type of fabric, as it can stain.
  • Washing Synthetic Fibers

    Protect these fibers from heat; they shrink in the dryer.

  • Washing Cashmere

    1. Cashmere is a very delicate and typically expensive fabric, you should always hand wash using detergent for delicate fabrics.
    2. Hand wash cashmere in cold water and detergent. You should not wring.
    3. Use Sta-Soft® fabric conditioner and your garment will retain an irresistible fragrance, as if it was always freshly washed.
    4. You must let the garment dry naturally: if ironing is necessary, do it at low temperatures while the garment is still damp.
  • Washing Wool

    1. Wash wool with cold water and lay it to dry flat over a towel.
    2. Dry wool clothing at room temperature, away from heat and sunlight. Do not use the dryer.
  • Washing Brocade

    1. Wash clothes with brocade by hand with cold water and a detergent for delicate clothes.
    2. Never wring a brocade garment.
    3. Always iron inside out over a towel to protect the embroidery.
  • Washing Denim

    1. While denim is a very durable fabric, it also needs care.
    2. Machine wash separately to avoid discoloring.
    3. Wash denim inside out and remember to zip up before putting the clothes into the washer.
  • Washing Lace

    1. Lace garments are very delicate and should be washed and dried very carefully.
    2. It is best to use a gentle and mild detergent for garments made of lace.
    3. Never use bleach as lace may become yellow.
    4. Dry flat on a white towel and away from direct sunlight.
  • Washing Leather and Suede

    1. Washing is rarely permitted. For best results please check the label.
    2. Maintain the appearance of the garment by rubbing the suede with a brush or with another piece of suede.
  • Washing Linen

    1. Although a tough fabric, it does require care.
    2. It is best to iron when the garment is still damp.
