Storing your winter wardrobe

October 18, 2016 2 min read


Winter is almost over, meaning the summer wardrobe is getting a look in! It's time to wash and clean our woollies one last time before their hibernation period. 

Cleaning our winter woolies before storing them away for summer is important as any stains will become set or stubborn to remove if left. Plus, pests are more attracted to smelly unclean clothes.

Silverfish, beetles, moths and mice love delicate wool and all that yummy fabric. There's nothing worse than revisiting our winter wardrobe only to discover a mess of stains or evidence of a silverfish picnic. Not to mention that stains creep causing garments to yellow and discolour.

Spend a little bit of extra time to make sure everything is in good order as you do with them while you are wearing them and looking fabulous during the season doesn't have to be difficult!

Here's our check list:

  • Check all the buttons, fasteners and zips are healthy and in working order too. If not get to with a needle and thread or take them to a professional.
  • Dry clean any garments that are dry clean only.                 
  • Wash all woollens and delicates in enviroCare Delicate & Wool Wash.            
  • Make sure everything is thoroughly dry before packing away to avoid moisture damage                

Cleaning doesn't take long and it makes a world of difference when you come to unpack, better the time spent on packing away nice clean and fresh items than unpack smelly stained ones! 

Wrap valuable jumpers and woollens in tissue paper or even old sheets, choose a suitable container to store items in that are pest proof and air tight.                  

You might even like to put a sachet of carefully concealed herbs or a few drops of essential oil onto a cottonwool ball in with your winter woolies. This can also help keep the creepy crawlies away as they find some fragrances such as pine and tea tree aversive. Our faves are lavender, rosemary and rose petals!            








Logistics Status & Pricing Update | 8th Feb 2022

Further to the previous logistics update, the spread of omicron variant continues to play havoc with many courier drivers, warehouse staff, forklift drivers, container unpack crews and administrators across the country.

To make logistics even more difficulty the East-West rail line is closed due to significant flooding including to both the Eyre and Stuart Highways, South Australia.

Please allow (at least) an extra 14 business days on top of your estimated date for arrival.

envirocare earth has always worked our best to minimise delivery costs but as a result of the ongoing issues affecting logistics all online orders will now attract a delivery charge.

FLAT RATES -  WA $15.00, INTERSTATE $20.00.

We encourage you to order in bulk; saving on product, delivery and helping the environment.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated and we hope that normality can return soon.

Omicron Logistics Status Update | 12th Jan 22

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant has further impacted the logistics industry. This includes many courier drivers, warehouse staff, forklift drivers, container unpack crews and administrators.

Due to the widespread impact of Omicron infections, our partnered carriers across the network are experiencing both a surge in parcel deliveries and major disruptions to their delivery services. With a significant number of people in self-isolation in accordance with state regulations and public health orders, delivery delays are expected across the network due to driver shortages, depots experiencing temporary closures and/or operating with significantly reduced staff.

This has also created some lags in tracking details being updated on carrier websites.

Please allow (at least) an extra 14 business days on top of your estimated date for arrival.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
