Wie Sie Ihre Kleidung optimal pflegen

Give your clothes some TLC this Earth Day with these expert tips from some of our favourite brands.

Da am diesjährigen Tag der Erde dazu aufgerufen wurde, in unsere Umwelt zu investieren, haben wir darüber nachgedacht, was das für unsere Kleiderschränke bedeutet. Für viele von uns heißt das, weniger zu kaufen und in das zu investieren, was wir bereits besitzen. In diesem Frühjahr gönnen wir unseren Kleidungsstücken eine Wellness-Behandlung und verlängern so die Lebensdauer unserer geliebten Teile.


Damit Handtaschen ihre Form behalten

With a different handbag for almost every look (just us?), we’re constantly switching between styles. When it comes to storing yours between uses, Furla advises you stuff your handbag with tissue paper – not the shoulder strap – to maintain the bag’s shape. Plus, store it inside the protective dust bag it came with to keep away dirt from sensitive materials, especially suede.

Need to give your favourite a spruce up? Furla recommends using a gentle cleansing milk and lightly moistened cloth to freshen up anything leather.

Verlängern Sie die Lebensdauer von Jeansstoffen

A planet saver and time saver in one: washing your denim jeans and jackets less often can prolong their life, according to Tommy Hilfiger, as the machine can shrink and fade the fabric. Instead, place your denim in the freezer for 24 hours to kill bacteria and freshen up your weekend regulars.

When you do wash them, the brand recommends turning them inside out first, to preserve the colour, using a cool wash and allowing them to air dry outside.

Unterwäsche von Hand waschen

Another wardrobe essential that doesn’t appreciate the washing machine: your lingerie. According to the experts at Calvin Klein Underwear, we should all be handwashing bras to keep them in good shape.

They advise using lukewarm water and delicate laundry detergent ¬– leaving the bra to soak for an hour before rinsing it with cold water and hanging to dry from the centre front grove (the bit between the cups). For an extra deep clean, you can use a toothbrush to give your delicates a scrub, which won’t damage the shape or material.


Polieren und schützen Sie Ihre Turnschuhe

Keep your sneakers looking box-fresh with Timberland’s three-step process. First up, the ‘Sole Brightener’ cleans and whitens your rubber sole. Simply press down to dispense, scrub away the dirt and then wipe clean with a cloth. Then, the ‘Waximum’ leather protector – made from beeswax and coconut oil – buffs, polishes and protects your leather outer (whether waxed or oiled) to like new. Buff in small circles using a sponge and leave to dry.

Finally, spritz a little ‘Air Raider’ refresher inside each shoe to keep them smelling sweet.


Waschen Sie Ihre Wolle angemessen

Our favourite winter warmer is another material that survives best with little washing – simply air your jumpers outside before giving them a onceover with a clothing brush to release the material’s natural oils. When you do wash them, garment bags are your friend, as is the ‘delicate’ washing machine setting. Remember to dry and store your wool jumpers flat so you don’t damage the fibres or twist the shape.

We all know wool and cashmere are prone to pilling, but your little-known secret weapon is the freezer, surprisingly. Place jumpers in there for a few minutes before each wear to help prevent pilling.


Beachten Sie alle besonderen Anweisungen

Be sure to check the label for washing and care advice on any new purchases, as these can vary hugely by brand. For example, when it comes to their much-loved polo T-shirts, Lacoste recommends washing without fabric softener – it won’t give any suppleness to your polo and can even damage the fibres.

Plus, since ‘Petit Piqué’ cotton is a mesh that loves freedom, allow it to air dry. It won’t appreciate the tumble dryer so, for the sake of the planet and your shirt, banish that.

Wir sind begeistert von der Timberland-Initiative "Timberloop", die im April diesen Jahres startet. Bringen Sie einfach Ihre alten Kleidungsstücke oder Schuhe in die Boutique und sie werden repariert oder zu etwas Neuem recycelt.


Gehen Sie beim Entfernen von Falten behutsam vor

A steamer is a quick and easy alternative to ironing, especially when you’re working with delicate fabrics, such as silk. Use long and slow movements, working from inside the piece, so the steam really penetrates the fabric and eases out any creases. Don’t own a steamer? Simply hang your outfit of the day in the bathroom while you’re taking a hot shower.
