Choose products that have the Charter for Sustainable Cleaning logo on their label, this indicates that you are choosing a product that meets strict sustainability criteria.
Sort your laundry according to colour. Keep dark colours from light colours and separate wool and silk as these fibres need a special detergent.
Some products are specifically designed for hand-washing delicate or lightly soiled items. Do not use these products in your machine as you will get too much foam.
It is possible to use a machine-wash detergent for hand-washes if this is indicated on the pack. Follow dosing instructions carefully.
Wash coloured laundry inside out to minimise colour fading and wear-and-tear from the clothes rubbing against each other and the drum.
Read the instruction manual of your machine to see how many items can be washed in the delicates cycle. As a rule of thumb for special-care items, do not fill more than half and reduce the spin speed.
