Which garments need to be washed at 90° and which at 40°?

Monday April 14th, 2014


Hot water at 90° is used for resistant fabrics or for sterilising a particularly dirty garment. Children’s white clothes, with food stains, are particularly dirty; the solution is to apply a stain remover or Marseilles soap on the stubborn stains, followed by a hot wash. But a cycle at 90° uses twice as much energy as one at 40°, and does not always give the best results. Scala laundry products are suitable for washing at 30 – 40°, giving equally satisfactory results.
