We all know that washing your laundry in hot water is one of the more effective ways to get your dirty clothes clean from stains and bacteria. Yet, the news agenda is rife with stories surrounding the environmental impact our lifestyle choices are having: lifestyle choices such as frequently washing clothes at high temperatures, which is having an influence on our drinking water supply and the quality of our oceans, not to mention the higher energy costs.
The reality is that choosing to wash your laundry in a colder temperature is not just about saving on power, energy and money and helping the environment. It’s also about sustaining your clothes.
We’ve put together this helpful guide on how to choose between a hot or a cold wash.Read More »

A peek in the average British wardrobe will confirm that we’re living in increasingly throwaway times. In the UK around 336,000 tonnes of our unwanted clothing gets thrown away every single year. Which? discovered that the average UK household owns about £4,000 worth of clothing, a third of which hasn’t been worn for over a year!
As the ‘haul culture’ continues to grow in popularity and the rise of low-cost retailers competing with various, tempting offers, it’s no surprise the British public are hooked on fast fashion. But it’s not sustainable.
It’s inevitable that on occasion you’ll fall out of love with your clothes. Perhaps a change in body shape means the garment no longer fits like it used to, your children have simply grown out of them, or fashion no longer permits this item to be deemed ‘in’.
Whatever your reasons, before giving your clothes the heave-ho, consider whether they could be reused in some way or another. Below are some of our top suggestions on how you can ensure your old clothes do not end up on the landfill pile.Read More »

Whether it’s for the office, a formal occasion or part of the school uniform, nothing beats a freshly pressed, clean, sparkly white shirt or blouse to add a certain dressy quality.
The only downside to owning something so white is that they can prove quite difficult to maintain bright, especially the collars and cuffs where grime and sweat can combine and form dirty marks.Read More »
The British Summer Time (BST) is wonderful. Not only does it give us hours of sunshine, warmer temperatures and longer days, it also provides households the opportunity to dry clothes promptly in the fresh air – leaving them smelling fresher for longer.
Sadly, BST is still a few months away. For those without tumble dryers or access to a garden, it’s highly likely that over the winter months, your wet laundry has been taking up space around the house on airers and on radiators and taking much longer to dry too!
Here are seven simple tips on how you can safely dry your clothes in your home, without resorting to the energy-hungry tumble dryer.Read More »
