Garment Care

We present a small guide so that you can take care of all the products you buy in Décimas and know how to interpret all the care labeling symbols. The more care you take when taking care of your clothes, the longer they will last and we will help save the planet.

WASHING

Before you start washing your clothes, keep in mind that you don't always need to wash them, sometimes brushing and airing is enough. If you decide to wash it, always check the pockets first.

If you are going to wash by hand, check that the detergent is completely dissolved before putting the clothes in the tub. If it is one of the first times you wash a garment, separate it as it can color the water.

If you are going to wash using a washing machine, try to use it at its maximum capacity. If, on the other hand, there are only a few garments, try to use a program that is short and/or ecological.

Try to use a detergent that is ecological and do not use more product than recommended. Otherwise, it can cause stains on clothing or even skin problems.
