During the first lockdown Result received many queries from customers asking what garments were suitable to be washed at 60°C, as this temperature is ideal for killing bacteria.
After months of rigorous in-house testing, Result has announced that those products that are suitable to be washed at 60°C now have their own 60°C wash category online.
During the testing Result watched for possible delamination, distortion, shrinkage and colour run.
Result does however advise a 40°C wash as standard, not just for fabric and colour stability, but also to help the environment.
While the current stock of styles may still have 40°C wash label instructions, on-going production wash labels have been updated to show their 60°C wash status.
