  1. Fading colour is one of the first signs of wear, if possible hang your clothes on hangers to dry in the shade, away from harsh UV. Under a deck is perfect for fresh air drying without the sunshine.
  2. Turn all clothes, especially jeans, inside out for washing and drying.
  3. Use colour protecting Sonett Laundry Liquid Colour.
  4. Use good hangers, that won’t snag fabrics and will keep the shape of your garments, don’t use wire hangers.
  5. Store your clothes in a dark, cool place.
  6. Button up and zip up, you don’t want zips, buttons or velcro to snag on fabrics and damaging other items in the wash load.
  7. Use a laundry bag for your lingerie, swimsuits and delicates.
  8. Front loaders are much more gentle on your clothes than agitators and use the delicate cycle plenty.
  9. Iron less as ironing is hard on clothes, another reason to use delicates cycle which won’t crease clothes as much and hang on hangers to dry.
  10. Shop for quality and classics from brands that care about longevity and use quality fabrics. Disposable fashion won’t last, no matter how well you care for it.
  11. Read the labels and follow care instructions.
  12. Dry cleaning is harsh on clothes.
  13. Remove stains as soon as possible. Sonett Stain Remover is effective yet gentle to delicate fabrics. Spray, wait 10 minutes, then pop in the delicates wash.
  14. Sort your laundry, whites do stay whiter when washed without coloured items.
  15. Take off your work clothes when you come home and change into home gear.
  16. Use an apron when cooking to protect your clothes.
  17. Avoid dryer use.
  18. Don’t overload your washing machine.
  19. Sonett Laundry Rinse, which you put into the softener compartment, revives the brightness of delicate colours, helps to rinse out detergent residue more thoroughly, and smoothes fibres. Smooth fibres need less ironing!
  20. And lastly use effective and gentle Sonett Laundry products. Kind to your clothes, your skin and the environment.
