How to Care for your Handmade Creations

#AD After channeling time, love and care into your sewing projects, it is essential that you look after them correctly, otherwise all of your hard work could go to waste. From an antique quilt to a blouse that has been made from the finest lace, every handmade item deserves to be treasured. Luckily, Eucalan is the perfect laundry companion for all of your hand or machine sewn garments and accessories. Read on to discover our top tips for loving laundry day and protecting your projects…

Select Your Scent

How to Care for your Handmade Creations

The only thing better than a garment that looks fantastic is one that smells fantastic too! That is why it is essential for you to select a scent that suits your tastes. Trust that Eucalan uses only pure essential oils to fragrance the formula. With five scents to choose from, you’re sure to find your new favourite: fresh, clean eucalyptus; fragrant, delicate lavender; romantic, intoxicating jasmine; crisp, pure grapefruit or naturally simple, unscented, for those with scent sensitivities or allergies.

Consider Your Make

How to Care for your Handmade Creations

Instead of throwing your project in the wash without a second thought, you should take a moment to answer the following questions. What fabric have you used? Are there any delicate or fragile areas? Can you spot any added embellishments that need to be protected? Eucalan is the respected choice for laundering everything from the finest knits to new or antique quilts; as well as exquisite intimates to swimwear, cozy pj’s and baby’s delicate handmade toys. Fine details, embellishments and stitching all need gentle care, and Eucalan provides that with its simple formula, free of typical harsh chemicals, optical brighteners, enzymes and bleach.

Take It One Step at a Time

How to Care for your Handmade Creations

Simply fill your basin with tepid water and add a capful or two of Eucalan and swish it around with your hand. Place your garment in the basin and squeeze the water through. Allow a few minutes to sit undisturbed, then gently squeeze again, paying particular attention to any heavily soiled areas. Drain the water and carefully squeeze the garment to remove as much water as possible. Roll your item in a clean, dry towel then place on another clean, dry towel to dry out of direct heat or sun. If your item isn’t a knit, it may be hung to dry.

Embrace an Eco Outlook

How to Care for your Handmade Creations

If you are an eco-conscious crafter, protecting your projects won’t be the only thing on your mind.
