In order for your products from TORSHAMMARENS to stay fine year after year, you should carefully follow our washing and care instructions. Below you will find information on how to best take care of your newly purchased products, as well as some good advice on washing in general.
Do not wash unnecessarily. Too much washing is negative for both your economy and the environment, but also for your products. Many times it is enough to rinse or brush them.
Wash at lower temperature. For heavily soiled products, we recommend washing at the highest permitted temperature. If, on the other hand, they are only slightly dirty, we recommend washing at a low temperature to protect both the product and the environment. The maximum permitted washing temperatures of the products are stated on the respective product page.
Do not overdose the detergent. Overdosing the detergent does not give better results, on the contrary, the excess can remain in the product and cause skin irritations.
Let the products self dry. Tumble dryer and drying cabinets not only consume a lot of energy, they also wear extra hard on the products. Therefore, let your products dry self if possible.
Close Velcro and zipper before washing. Unnecessary wear can often be prevented by closing any Velcro straps and zippers before washing.
Do not use softener more than necessary. Fabric softener is not only a frequent unnecessary expense, but also contributes to an unnecessary use of chemicals. In addition, the use of fabric softener can even destroy the functions of certain products and change the appearance of the material. However, there are a few occasions where we recommend the use of fabric softener for our products.
