At hoya kerry, we strongly recommend cold wash and air drying for our garments, as it is cheaper and better for our environment.
The carbon footprint of a load of laundry:
0.6 kg CO2e washed at 30°C, dried on the line 0.7 kg CO2e washed at 40°C, dried on the line 2.4 kg CO2e washed at 40°C, tumble-dried in a vented dryer 3.3 kg CO2e washed at 60°C, dried in a combined washer-dryer
Air-drying clothes can reduce the average household’s carbon footprint by a whopping 1088 kg a year. Moreover, the ultra-violet rays in sunlight helps to bleach and disinfect laundry.
Our garments can be machine washed in cold water. However, if aggressively washed, they will be damaged. Therefore, you can use our drawstring bag as a laundry bag to increase the longevity.
Wash the garment before you wear them
Wash according to care instructions
