Taking Care of Your Bread & Boxers Clothes
At Bread & Boxers, we believe that taking care of your clothes is essential for both your wallet and the environment. Here's a simple guide to help you extend the life of your underwear, T-Shirts, and lounge sets:
Follow Washing Instructions:
Always follow the washing instructions provided on your garment. They're there for a reason and ensure the best care for your items.
Avoid washing your clothes too frequently. Most garments, especially cotton, don't need to be washed after just one wear. Cotton breathes naturally. If you want a quick freshen-up, simply hang them out to vent.
Lower Temperature Wash:
Modern washing powders are efficient even at lower temperatures. This not only saves energy but also prolongs the life of your clothes.
Resist the temptation of using dryers, as they can stretch the shape of your clothes and cause them to wear out faster. Opt for air drying, which is also better for the environment.
Beware of "White" Detergents:
Avoid "White" Detergents: Steer clear of detergents labeled "white" as they often contain bleach, which can damage clothing fibers, especially those with elastane/stretch.
Skip Fabric Softeners:
Fabric softeners aren't the best choice for your clothes, yourself, or the environment. We recommend avoiding them.
To preserve color and prevent pilling and rubs, wash your clothes inside-out.
Secure Zips and Buttons:
Keep zips and buttons closed when washing to prevent them from scratching other garments.
Organize Your Closet:
By following these simple guidelines, you can enjoy your Bread & Boxers items year after year while reducing your environmental footprint.
