Clothing care tips

Brighter whites

Want to get brighter whites from your wash? Here's some advice from Steve, our resident fabric care expert.

Only use as much washing powder as you really need, because too much will degrade fabrics and make them turn grey.

Bear in mind that these days, manufacturers will often put in optical brighteners. The garment, when new, will look really, really bright - but that's an artificial colour, so don't feel as if you're doing anything wrong if it dims after the first wash.

What our customers say

"Steve knows his product and his materials really well. He has a very clear view about how things need to be treated - he has the experience of how to handle different things. Also, he's been very accommodating if I need last-minute things. If I get something and need to wear it the next day, he'll have it back."
