How to clean your trench coat naturally

How to refresh  your trench coat naturally:

Trench coats are timeless classics that exude sophistication and style. They're versatile, functional, and perfect for various weather conditions. However, like any other clothing item, trench coats require regular cleaning to maintain their appearance and longevity. If you're passionate about sustainable living and want to minimise your environmental impact, refreshing and cleaning your trench coat naturally is the way to go…

Cleaning your trench coat

  • Assess Your Trench Coat

Before diving into the cleaning process, it's essential to assess your trench coat. Check the care label and material to determine the best cleaning approach. Most trench coats are made from cotton or a cotton blend, which can often be cleaned naturally. However, if your trench coat contains delicate materials or unique trims, consider seeking professional advice or services.

  • Refreshing your trench coat naturally

As these coats are a little larger than our normal everyday clothes, having to wash these often can be a hassle. If possible, start by giving your trench coat a good shake to remove any loose dirt or debris. Hang it outdoors, allowing it to air out and refresh naturally. After, you can mist this over with some Natural Garment Refresher to remove any bacteria and give it a lovely, refreshing scent. This simple step will help in reducing the amount of cleaning required.

  • Spot Clean Stains

If your trench coat has specific stains, tackle them first. Using a natural Stain Solution, apply this to the stained areas and gently blot with a clean cloth. Test it on a hidden spot first to ensure it won't discolour or damage your coat.

  • Natural Detergent for Machine Washing

Garment Care Collection

For trench coats that can be machine washed, opt for a Natural Laundry Detergent

  1. Turn your trench coat inside out to protect the outer fabric.

  2. Place it in a mesh laundry bag to prevent tangling or damage during the wash.

  3. Wash your trench coat on a gentle cycle with cold water to maintain its colour and fabric quality.

  • Hand Washing Your Trench Coat

If your trench coat requires hand washing, follow these eco-friendly steps:

  1. Fill a basin or bathtub with cool water.

  2. Add a small amount of natural detergent and mix until it dissolves.

  3. Submerge your coat and gently agitate the water. Let it soak for 10-15 minutes.

  4. Gently rub any soiled areas with your fingers or a soft cloth.

  5. Rinse thoroughly with cool water until the detergent is completely washed out.

  6. Gently squeeze out excess water without wringing or twisting the fabric.

  7. Hang your trench coat on a padded hanger to dry, preferably outdoors, to benefit from natural air circulation.

  • Maintenance and Storage

Proper care doesn't end with cleaning. After your trench coat is dry, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. To prevent wrinkles, fasten all buttons and belts, and hang it up properly.

Cleaning your trench coat naturally not only maintains its pristine appearance but also aligns with sustainable living principles. Take care of your trench coat, and it will continue to be a fashionable and eco-conscious addition to your wardrobe for years to come.
