Tips for taking care of clothes minimizing the impact on the environment
While we have already talked about the main care that denim needs, now we will discuss how to carry out the care of clothes in general while minimizing the impact we produce on the environment.
As you know, the washing and care of clothes is in many cases highly polluting for our environment due to the chemical spills it entails. For this reason, it is important that we adopt certain measures with which, individually, we try to minimize the impact we produce on the environment, which, with increasing intensity, is destroying our planet.
Here are some tips to take care of the clothes while minimizing the impact on the environment:
- Use hot water to wash only sheets and towels. It is the only way to eliminate mites and bacteria. Remember that if you wash the rest of your clothes at more than 30 degrees Celsius, you will damage the fabric and your clothes will last much less than desired.
- Also, as you know, hot water mixed with cleaning products pollutes more than cold water, so, we insist: no more than 30ºC!
- The same goes for the dryer: the less the better. It is preferable to dry your outdoor clothes always well extended so as not to create artificial wrinkles - better for clothes, better for the planet and better for your pocket! -.
- If you want to take care of the clothes while minimizing the impact on the environment, you can use vinegar instead of softener: it is a natural product that disinfects, softens clothes, and eliminates stains and odors. Although it seems strange, the smell of vinegar disappears after a few minutes, although you can also mix it with some essential oil that you like to make the aroma more pleasant.
- When using commercial products - detergents and softeners - you must choose the ones with the least ingredients, they will be the least harmful. Try to avoid everything related to phosphate or sulfate, and also fragrances and brighteners.
