We thought that this guide may remind you of a few simple ways to care for your SILOU garments and make your post-purchase routine a little greener.
Care information and washing instructions can be found on the lining of your garment.
KEEP IT ECO
The simplest way to care for your activewear is to add them to the wash sooner rather than later.
For your activewear to last longer and the climate impact to become lower, wash on a short cycle at 30 degrees or lower.
When separating your whites from your darks, make sure to separate your SILOU-ettes too. The colour combination will stay true from the first day you purchased them if you remember to wash them separately on a singular short 15 or 30-minute cycle.
USE A LAUNDRY WASH BAG
With each wash, countless plastic fibers from synthetic textiles are making their way from washing machines into rivers and oceans. The Guppyfriend Washing Bag is a patented solution, that filters out the tiniest microfibers released from textiles during washing. The self-cleaning fabric bag is made of a specially designed micro-filter material. Simply collect the fibers and dispose them of properly.
Our luxury fabrics are not suited to your tumble dryer. Make sure to air dry your kit on a clothesline or rack. Better for your SILOU and better for the planet.
WE’RE SOFT ENOUGH
Fabric softeners are made up of silicones, however, our activewear doesn’t need this ingredient – they are already buttery soft. Avoid using all fabric softeners as it inhibits the wicking capabilities of our performance fabrics.
We are known to wash like colours on an easy 15 or 30-minute cycle. We always go for eco detergent, or skip it completely and just add our favourite, freshening essential oils such as Tea Tree, Eucalyptus or Peppermint.
