When you are creating a Sustainable Wardrobe, you want to make sure your clothes will last for as long as possible. One way to achieve a more durable closet, is to choose organic fabrics when you purchase something new. But another great way to become more sustainable, is to really take care of your items with more intent. But, where to start? To make tasks easier for you, I have assembled a few items that might help. Here is my personal selected, Sustainable Care Kit.
With this steamer from The Steamery, you can easily de-wrinkle any garment (except leather and suede) without having to iron it. This steamer heats up quickly and is very easy in use when you need to steam a garment. Steaming your clothes is better for the fibers of your garment, as it removes unwanted odors and bacteria from the fabric without harming the fibers too much. This steamer is a good investment that works and looks good as well!
Quality loss on your jumpers? Pills appearing on your favorite sweaters? Not with this fabric shaver! The Steamery has introduced this well-thought off product to regain the former quality of sweaters. Through the years, wool or other delicate fabrics start to loose strength and this small device can help you make them look as new. I have recently bought this item myself, and I love it! You can easily charge it. Like the steamer, they come in various colors.
You might not realize this when you do your laundry, but synthetic fabrics carry a lot of microplastics. During the laundry load, those microplastic release themselves and disappear into the waterways. Eventually polluting our oceans and threatens sealife. Want to help our planet a little further? Get yourself this GUPPYFRIEND washbag. The bag will clean up your laundry and remove the microplastics from the water.
If there is one product in your wardrobe that needs the occasional proper care, it is the leather item. Leather is one of the most durable fabrics available, yet it only lasts if you take proper care of it. Use a cream to keep the moisture in the leather and keep it nice and shiny. The Famaco Eco Cream is a nice sustainable and natural alternative to other leather cremes.
