Splash Blog


As a fashion brand, Splash is committed to sourcing responsibly, which is why we offer a range of garments made from eco-friendly materials such as Responsibly Sourced Cotton, Tencel, Modal, and recycled polyester and nylon. While these materials are known for their durability, comfort, and eco-friendly nature, proper care is still necessary to ensure that your Splash garments stay in great condition for as long as possible.


Did you know that the way you care for your clothes can have a bigger impact on the environment than you might think? In fact, clothing care accounts for around 30% of a garment's carbon footprint.


This calls for a re-consideration of what happens in the laundry room. Many a times we end up ruining our favorite clothes because we don't understand the care instructions. Trust us we've all been there - you throw a shirt in the wash, only to pull it out and find that it has shrunk or become faded. Don't worry, you're not alone! That's why we've decided to create a helpful guide to clothing care. With our easy-to-follow tips, you'll be able to keep your clothes looking their best for longer. No more shrinkage, fading, or mysterious stains - just fabulous, well-cared-for garments. So don't let confusing care instructions hold you back any longer - follow our guide and start enjoying your clothes to the fullest!


Care Instructions: Each of our garments comes with care instructions that outline the best way to wash and care for the specific material. Be sure to follow these instructions carefully to ensure that your clothes last as long as possible.



Wash your clothes: One of the easiest ways to extend the life of your clothes is to wash them less often. Not only will this help your clothes stay in better condition, but it will also save water and energy, which is good for the environment. If your clothes aren't too dirty or sweaty, try spot cleaning or airing them out instead of washing them.



Wash in cold water: Hot water can be harsh on clothes, especially those made from eco-friendly materials. To protect your clothes and save energy, wash them in cold water whenever possible. If you need to use hot water, be sure to use a mild detergent and wash on a gentle cycle. That's why splash recommends Machine wash in cold water for most of its products - Green your Laundry!



Don't overstuff: Overstuffing your washing machine can cause your clothes to rub against each other, which can lead to pilling and other wear and tear. To avoid this, be sure to leave enough space in your washing machine for your clothes to move around freely.



Use a laundry bag: Delicate items such as lingerie, swimsuits, and hosiery can easily get snagged or damaged in the wash. To protect these items, consider using a laundry bag to keep them safe. 



Dry your clothes gently: To keep your clothes looking their best, be sure to dry them gently. Avoid wringing out your clothes, as this can cause them to stretch and lose their shape. Instead, gently squeeze out excess water and lay your clothes flat to dry. If you need to use a dryer, be sure to use a low heat setting and remove your clothes as soon as they are dry to avoid over-drying.



Store your clothes properly: Proper storage is key to keeping your clothes in good condition. Be sure to fold your clothes neatly and store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid hanging your clothes, as this can cause them to stretch and lose their shape. Instead, use hangers with padded shoulders or fold your clothes and store them in a drawer or on a shelf.
