Trousers made of cotton are basically very easy-care. But a few things should be noted anyway in order to have long pleasure with our trousers.
Sort your wash by colour. This prevents darker colours from leaking into lighter ones. Do up
all buttons and zips. This prevents metal parts from damaging the fabric. Then turn trousers inside out. This protects the outside of the fabric during the wash.
Avoid machine pre-treatments of stains. Due to the intensive rubbing, they simply rub the colour off the fabric - not necessarily the stain. Unsightly light patches may result. If necessary, please use suitable special products for pre-treatments.
Use as little laundry liquid as possible. This prevents harmful residues from remaining in the material after rinsing. Laundry powder and liquid are equally suitable. We recommend using laundry detergent for coloured clothing in order to prevent premature fading of the material. During the wash, cotton is primarily cleaned by the movement of the fabric inside the drum. Laundry detergent mainly contributes a pleasant scent. You do not need to use fabric conditioner or similar products.
Choose the care programme according to the care instructions for your MEYER trousers.
This is generally the coloured wash at 40°C. Delicate wash programmes do not provide enough movement to wash effectively. Pre-washing is not necessary. Do not wash more than 3 or 4 pairs of trousers at once. If the drum is overfilled, the movement which is crucial for the cleaning process is too limited to be effective.
For optimal washing, spin on the lowest setting for a short period of time (approx. 400 spins). When the wash programme has ended, the trousers should be removed from the machine as soon as possible. If damp trousers stay in the drum for a period of time, this can lead to discolouration. Shake and pull the trousers into shape before drying.
You can hang your trousers up to dry naturally. However, all MEYER cotton trousers are suitable for tumble-drying. Choose a low temperature - maximum 60-65°C. In the dryer, trousers become silky and soft.
Iron trousers at moderate to medium temperature - a maximum of 2 points on the iron.
Note the information on the care label.
Ironing at high temperatures should be avoided. You should be particularly careful with fabrics with a high proportion of synthetic fibres. Steam increases the temperature and should be used carefully. We recommend that you iron dark coloured trousers and jeans inside out in order to avoid shiny patches.
