Perfect care - perfect shape

Wash and dry, ready. Correctly looking after our trousers isn't hard if you know how to do it. Treat your trousers right. That way they'll stay as they are - perfectly-formed.

MEYER Care instruction - Preparation

 

  • Sort your wash by colour. This prevents darker colours from leaking into lighter ones.
  • Do up all buttons and zips. This prevents metal parts from damaging the fabric.
  • Then turn trousers inside out. This protects the outside of the fabric during the wash.
  • Avoid machine pre-treatments of stains. Due to the intensive rubbing, they simply rub the colour off the fabric - not necessarily the stain. Unsightly light patches may result.
  • If necessary, please use suitable special products for pre-treatments.

MEYER Care instruction - Washing

The correct way of washing prevents your trousers from shrinking.

  • Use as little laundry liquid as possible. This prevents harmful residues from remaining in the material after rinsing. Laundry powder and liquid are equally suitable. We recommend using laundry detergent for coloured clothing in order to prevent premature fading of the material. During the wash, cotton is primarily cleaned by the movement of the fabric inside the drum. Laundry detergent mainly contributes a pleasant scent. You do not need to use fabric conditioner or similar products.
  • Choose the care programme according to the care instructions for your MEYER trousers. This is generally the coloured wash at 40°C. Delicate wash programmes do not provide enough movement to wash effectively. Pre-washing is not necessary.
  • Do not wash morethan 3 or 4 pairs of trousers at once.
  • If the drum is overfilled, the movement which is
    crucial for the cleaning process is too limited to be effective.
  • For optimal washing, spin on the lowest setting for a short period of time (approx. 400 spins).
  • When the wash programme has ended, the trousers should be removed from the machine as soon as possible. If damp trousers stay in the drum for a period of time, this can lead to discolouration.
  • Shake and pull the trousers into shape before drying.

MEYER Care instruction - Drying

You can hang your trousers up to dry naturally. However, all MEYER cotton trousers are suitable for tumble-drying. Choose a low temperature - maximum 60-65°C. In the dryer, trousers become silky and soft.

MEYER Care instruction - Ironing

 

  • Iron trousers at moderate to medium temperature - a maximum of 2 points on the iron. Note the information on the care label.
  • Ironing at high temperatures should be avoided.
  • You should be particularly careful with fabrics with a high proportion of synthetic fibres. Steam increases the temperature and should be used carefully.
  • We recommend that you iron dark coloured trousers and jeans
    inside out in order to avoid shiny patches.

MEYER Care instruction - Washing our pure wool trousers

Trousers made from 100% pure wool are generally not suitable for washing at home. Dry cleaning (P) is the ideal choice. However, most woollen trousers from MEYER can be washed at home in the machine thanks to their added polyester. For wool, however, the following basic rule applies: As little movement as possible in order to prevent pilling (build up of bobbles due to felting) - use as much water as possible.

Preparation

Carefully sort your washing. Trousers made from a wool mix should not be washed together with other materials. Do up all buttons and zips prior to washing in order to prevent rubbing or catching on the fabric of the trousers. It is not absolutely necessary to turn the trousers inside out.

Washing

Select a wool wash programme at 40°C. Alternatively, you may choose a delicates cycle at 40°C. You should avoid spinning as this causes the woollen fibres to felt. Use detergent designed for woollens because this is adapted to the specific needs of wool fibres.

Drying

Woollens should not be tumble-dried. Wringing out or beating wears the wool fibres out. If necessary, you can place wet trousers on a hand towel and gently squeeze the water out. We recommend spreading the trousers flat and hanging them dripping wet to dry.

Ironing

To prevent damage to the inner lining - Do not iron your trousers inside out – Steam ironing should be absolutely avoided as this can permanently deform the trousers or create unwanted creases. In order to fix iron creases, place a damp tea towel between the iron and the fabric.
