*Before reading this, please be aware that we are going through a drought and that when you do any kind of laundry you're sure that it's absolutely necessary. Let's try and save water.*
I was so excited to try this product and share it with you as most of you would agree when it comes to clothing most of us are concerned with style, trends, fits, brands and or fabrics, and even though all these things are equally important when choosing an item of clothing, we need to put more effort into the actual garment care after we’ve bought the item.
Correct garment care can save you tons of money and have you stretching out the life span of those items you just can’t seem to part with, keeping them newer for longer.
Everyone has a favourite jean and t-shirt, I surely do. My favourite jean has always been black and through the past few years, I’ve been through quite a lot of favourites. I’ve recently got a new one and I’ve also recently started using Skip darks when washing my jean. If you head over to my Instagram account now, I can assure you there’s about three visible pictures in which I’m wearing the same jean.
Skip’s new range does not only cater for dark wash items but whites too and also those delicate fabrics that need extra care. They have recognised that there is a gap in proper care for clothing especially when it comes to varying colours and fabrics. We cannot treat all garments with the same care, this causes damage and shortens the life span of these garments.
The entire range is suitable for auto-washing machines, the bottles are 1,5 litres but lasts as long as a 2kg washing powder bag and each Skip intelligent bottle comes with fibre care technology. Each bottle also comes with a 1,5ml cap so it’s easy to measure per load. The name of each product explains itself, Skip perfect darks keeps your clothes dark, the perfect whites keeps clothes white and the perfect delicates helps care for your delicate items.
I don’t know if I’m more excited about the Skip dark or whites because I love bright whites and I’m extremely excited about the fact that my dark items will now be dark and new for longer. No more grey faded denims for me!
