We do our utmost to take care of all our items in the most responsible, planet-friendly while assuring that every garment comes back to the library in a tiptop condition. Here is an overview of our eco-care practices:
- We use a washing machine with A+++ energy label and always opt for the eco-mode that is said to conserve water and energy
- We wash our precious garments at 30 degrees unless it is absolutely necessary to wash them in warmer water
- We use soap nuts and eco washing detergent: no phosphates, no toxins, no petroleum-based ingredients.
- Instead of fabric softener we use vinegar. Vinegar is a true super hero! It helps removing stains, adds brightness to whites and colors, removes lint, helps prevent dyes running, kills bacteria, neutralises odours and helps keeping clothes (and washing machines) clear of soap residue.
