4. Steam wrinkles and creases
Your clothes will bear traces of your hectic days, looking dull with creases and wrinkles. Clothes worn only once are often tossed on the floor before they are put into the laundry basket, even if they are not dirty, stained, or smelly. Steam and put them back in the closet instead. The hot steam targets bad odors and bacteria, eliminating all signs of the garments being worn in the first place.
5. Target the stains, not the garment
Spills from lunch, berry stains from snacking, grass stains from the playground, or red wine stains from Saturday’s dinner party. The stains on our garments are clues to our everyday life. If you are acting fast and treat the stain before it’s settled, you don’t necessarily have to wash the whole garment.
The general rule is that grease stains, like butter or any type of oil, should be treated with a fat dissolvent, for example, colorless washing up liquid or bile soap. Stains like blood, ice cream, berries, or grass can be removed with Oxi Spray. Spray directly on the stain, let it bubble, rinse with water, and or gently dab with a sponge. When in doubt, use our Stain Remover
to treat any kind of stain.
You can also try to soak the stain with detergent. We recommend using our specialized detergents
that are designed for different kinds of textiles. For instance, if the stained fabric is a delicate material, like silk or wool, you should use an enzyme-free detergent that targets dirt without harming the textile fibers.
Try these methods before throwing your clothes in the laundry basket. Once you kick the habit of washing clothes that are only worn – and not dirty – you will never go back to doing unnecessary laundry again.
