TENCEL CARE RECOMMENDATION

TENCEL CARE RECOMMENDATION

To keep your Tencel items as durable and as new as possible, we recommend that you treat your clothes in accordance with the points below.

 

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS FOR TENCEL

• Charging rate 70%
• Washer ratio : 1: 5
• Rinsing ratio: 1: 6
• Do not use bleach if possible
Aggressive substances such as peracetic acid, hydrogen peroxide or chlorine must be neutralized during rinsing
• The cooling time from the main wash should be around 2-3 ° C per minute.
• The fabric should have a residual humidity of 38-40% after spinning to avoid creasing the clothes.
• Do not use fabric softener to avoid pellets and yellowing.


DRYING PROCESS

• The drying result is i.a. depending on the filling ratio. We recommend a 70-80% load.
• The temperature of the dryer must not exceed 80 degrees.
• Avoid over-drying at all costs so that no permanent tissue changes occur.
• Tunnel -/ cabinet dryer: the fabric is tested at 160 degrees and a drying time of 4:30 min. This is divided into steam time (2 minutes) and drying time (2:30 minutes).
The combination of dryer and tunnel -/ cabinet dryer provides longer life and a better self-smoothing effect of the fabric. Pre-dry the parts in the dryer at low temperatures and with low load. To prevent over-drying, we recommend a natural residual moisture of 10-12% at the end of the process.


6 IMPORTANT POINTS TO MAINTAIN THE APPEARANCE

• Do not overfill the washing machine
• Observe the cooling time (slow cooling)
• Rinse gently
• Avoid too low a pH value during the rinsing process. The rinsing water should preferably have a pH value of 7-8 (skin neutral)
• Avoid excessive drying.
• Always wash clothes to optimize opacity and absorbency.
