Our hope is that you keep your Somewhere forever! So to help you, we have put together these helpful tips about how to care for your clothes.   

Organic Cotton Singlet, T-shirt and Shirt

WASH - The most environmentally friendly way to wash your cotton, which is also the kindest on your clothes, is to cold hand wash. Although we prefer to hand wash you can also clean your cotton on a cold, gentle machine wash. 

HOW OFTEN - We have thoroughly wear tested our cotton garments and found you shouldn't need to wash them more than once every 3-4 wears (unless it is a particularly sticky day in the middle of summer...)

HOW TO HAND WASH - Simply pop your cotton pieces in a bucket of cold water with some detergent, we like the Ecostore  selection. Swish them around to let the soap to pass through before letting them sit for a few minutes. You can use a sard soap on areas of contact like the underarm or necklines to make them nice and fresh. Next, rinse thoroughly in clean water and ensure you remove all soap residue. Remove from the bucket and squeeze softly until the dripping stops, do not wring out.

DRY- To dry, hang them outside or on a clothes line inside. Quick tip: hang them on a coat hanger for no wrinkles and no peg marks. Please never use the tumble drier! The heat is really harsh on your clothes, wears them down quickly and consumes a lot of energy - not to mention it will shrink your cotton!

Merino Singlet, Turtleneck, Cardigan and Crewneck

WASH - Merino is a delicate and sensitive fibre which everyone has discovered the hard way at least once; is prone to shrinking. The most environmentally friendly way to wash your merino, which is also the kindest on your clothes, is to cold hand wash. Although we prefer to hand wash you can also clean your merino on a cold, gentle machine wash. 

HOW OFTEN - Merino is naturally antibacterial so doesn't need to be cleaned after every wear. We have thoroughly wear tested our merino garments and you shouldn't need to wash it more than once every 4-6 wears.  If it needs a freshen up, often just hanging it in the shade outside will do the trick. 

HOW TO HAND WASH - Simply pop your wool pieces in a bucket with cold water and some detergent, our suggestion is the Ecostore wool and delicates. Swish them around for a few minutes to let the soap pass through, letting them sit for another few minutes then removing them from the water. If it is a more delicate thinner wool, squeeze gently but do not ring or twist as this can distort the shape and break the fibres. Empty your bucket or basin and refill it with fresh water. Put your piece back in to remove the detergent. Repeat this process until you’re confident there is no more detergent in the wool.  

DRY - To dry, lay the garment on a fresh towel and roll it up. Gently squeeze the towel but do not wring or twist. Unroll and lay it flat on a fresh towel to dry, placing it in a shaded area outside or a flat surface inside. Do not hang your merino to dry as the weight of any remaining water can cause the garment to stretch. Please never use the tumble drier! The heat is really harsh on your clothes, wears them down quickly and consumes a lot of energy - not to mention it will shrink your merino to the point of no return!

Organic Cotton Denim Jeans

WASH - The less you wash your jeans the better! For little marks, spot clean them, hang them in the sun to freshen them up and if you really really have to wash them, hand washing is the way to go. Although we prefer to hand wash you can also clean your merino on a cold, gentle machine wash.

HOW OFTEN - The less the better! You should get at least 10 wears out of them before needing a wash. 

HOW TO HAND WASH - Turn your jeans inside out and pop them in a bucket of cold water with some detergent, we like the Ecostore  selection. Swish them around to let the soap to pass through before letting them sit for a few minutes. You can use a sard soap and a toothbrush if you have any little marks marks. Next, rinse thoroughly in clean water and ensure you remove all soap residue. Remove from the bucket and squeeze softly until the dripping stops, do not wring out.

DRY - To dry, hang them outside or on a clothes line inside. Please never use the tumble drier! The heat is really harsh on your clothes, wears them down quickly and consumes a lot of energy - not to mention it will shrink your jeans!

Regenerated Nylon Leggings

WASH - The most environmentally friendly way to wash your leggings, which is also the kindest on your clothes, is to cold hand wash. Although we prefer to hand wash you can also clean your leggings on a cold, gentle machine wash using a Guppyfriend™ washing bag

HOW OFTEN - You shouldn't need to wash your leggings more than once every 8-10 wears.

HOW TO HAND WASH - Simply pop your leggings into your Guppyfriend™ washing bag, then into a bucket with cold water and some detergent, we like the Ecostore selection. Swish them around for about a minute to let the soap pass through, let them sit for a few minutes. You can use a sard soap on areas that need a slightly deeper clean or where you have little marks. Next, rinse thoroughly in clean water and ensure you remove all soap residue. 

DRY - Remove from the bucket and squeeze softly until the dripping stops, do not wring out. Hang to dry either outside or on a clothes line inside out of direct sunlight. Please never use the tumble drier! The heat is really harsh on your clothes, wears them down quickly and consumes a lot of energy - not to mention it will shrink your leggings!

Organic Cotton and Merino Blazer

WASH  - Your blazer's should very rarely need to be washed. Spot cleaning is an easy way to get rid of any little marks and airing them outside in the shade is usually all they need to freshen up.

HOW OFTEN - We recommend washing your blazer only once or twice a year. 

HOW TO WASH - For tougher stains or if your blazer needs a little more than spot cleaning and airing, please take it to a professional dry cleaner (an eco one if this is available to you!)
