Germs spread quickly via underwear, hand towels, or sportswear. Find out how easy it is to keep your laundry hygienically clean and cared for. The following applies to laundry hygiene in general:
Do not leave it lying around1. Used textiles and damp dirty laundry should be dried quickly and washed as soon as possible. Laundry that has been washed should be dried immediately and not left in the machine.
Save energy, multiply germs?2. Germs are not reliably destroyed at low temperatures. Whenever possible, select a 60°C programme. IMPRESAN Hygienic Laundry Rinse ensures reliable hygiene at low temperatures.
Remove biofilm3. Lint filter, rubber seal, or pipes: the damp environment in the washing machine when not in use promotes the formation of germ-harbouring biofilms. Experts therefore recommend running a 60°C wash cycle with an all-purpose detergent at least once a week. IMPRESAN Hygienic Laundry Rinse also reliably removes biofilms even at lower temperatures.
Leave the drum and detergent drawer to dry4. After use, the washing machine door and detergent drawer should be left open to dry. This prevents the formation of germs.
Babies’ and children’s laundry: responsible care
In general, babies’ and children’s laundry does not have to be washed in a different way to other laundry. If a member of the family is ill, it is sensible to use IMPRESAN Hygienic Laundry Rinse, especially in the event of gastrointestinal illnesses.
Wash new clothes before use
New clothing for babies and children should be thoroughly washed before being worn for the first time. This removes excess colourants, additives, and finishing agents from the textiles.
60°C whenever possible
Many manufacturers already ensure that babywear can be washed at 60°C. A hot wash cycle in combination with an all-purpose detergent containing bleach ensures hygienic cleanliness.
Delicates for sensitive ones
From age 2, outer garments can often only be washed at 30°C or 40°C. For specific hygienic requirements, you can use IMPRESAN Hygiene Laundry Rinse Free from fragances or colourants. It removes 99.9% of bacteria, fungi, and specific viruses and does not contain any colourants or fragrance.
Underwear and lingerie: delicate, but also delicately clean?
We often wear delicate lace, elegant blouses, or cashmere jumpers directly on the skin. As a result, these clothes quickly come into contact with germs. At the same time, the fibres require special attention when being washed and cared for.
A hot wash cycle with an all-purpose detergent containing bleach is out of the question. However, your delicates can still be hygienically cleaned with IMPRESAN.
Effective disinfection and care
If you want to disinfect as well as care for your delicates, IMPRESAN Hygienic Laundry Rinse is the right option for you. When developing these products, we used our dual competence as an experienced manufacturer of hygienic and special detergents. IMPRESAN Hygienic Laundry Rinse is also suitable for sensitive fabrics and has been carefully tested by a medical research institute
For hand and machine washes
All IMPRESAN Hygienic Laundry Rinse products are easy to use in the washing machine. Alternatively, you can use them during the last rinse when washing by hand. The exact dosage recommendation can be found on the relevant product.
Most modern lingerie is made from synthetic fibres and can only be washed at 30°C or 40°C. However, you also want to be sure that something that you wear so close to your body is really free from germs. It is therefore best to use a mild detergent in conjunction with IMPRESAN Hygienic Laundry Rinse, which removes 99.9% of bacteria, fungi, and specific viruses.
Sportswear: retain functionality, remove odours
The high-performance, high-tech fibres in sportswear prove their superiority when it comes to sports. As consumers, however, we would sometimes prefer a little more functionality when it comes to washing them.
Most sportswear can only be washed at 40°C. Germs, which multiply rapidly on sweaty clothes, are only destroyed at 60°C.
IMPRESAN Hygienic Laundry Rinse offers the necessary hygiene in this respect. Thanks to its active formula with freshness booster, the IMPRESAN Hygienic Laundry Rinse Active, for example, ensures long-lasting freshness and fragrance.
