At the end of April, we hosted our first Sustainable Garment Care Workshop at one of our local stockists, Steadfast Supply. It was such a nice morning of conversation centered around clean and sustainable garment care, all over delicious bites from DC Eatings.
I led a short discussion about garment care: it's history, traditional ways to wash clothes, the effects that detergents and softeners can have on fabrics, and sustainable ways to care for our clothes. After the discussion, each guest made a garment refresher spray from natural ingredients and essential oils. The also received 3 wool dryer balls to scent with essential oils and also take home with them!
It was so nice to hear that everyone who attended learned something new! We can't wait for our next garment care workshop on July 21st. Stay tuned for more details! Would you like a blog post dedicated to garment tips? Let us know below!
