The number-one rule for a sustainable wardrobe is ensuring your clothes last as long as possible. At A LITTLE FIND, we believe the key to keeping your clothes looking as good as new is a little TLC and trusted natural clothing care products.
We’ve hand-selected these airing-cupboard essentials from brands who strive to make good fashion last a lifetime. We’ve got handy tools for natural clothing care, alongside washing and drying aids. Of course, we only work with brands whose values reflect our own, using organic and biodegradable ingredients, encased in plastic-free, FSC or easily recyclable packaging (or all three).

Laundry Day Favourites
Laundry is a pretty unskippable part of day-to-day life, so we like it as simple and planet-friendly as possible. That starts with an eco-friendly laundry detergent that’s non-toxic, biodegradable and kind to skin too. Keeping your clothes looking shiny and new – and avoiding stretching, shrinking and discolouration – is all about choosing the perfect wash for the fabric. You’ll find special formulas for silk, wool, delicates, sports clothes and baby’s essentials, alongside tough-love stain removers that are still gentle on the planet and skin.
A washing bag by Guppyfriend is a two-pronged saviour, preventing plastics from entering our rivers and oceans and helping your clothes last longer by minimising fibre loss. For the next step in the routine, swap out costly fabric softeners for all-natural, chemical-free dryer balls from A LITTLE FIND. They are quiet in the machine, gentle on clothes, and best of all, they last for years.
Getting Into the Knitty-Gritty
Let’s get down to the knit-y gritty of clothing care – keeping our winter woollies looking pristine. Your cashmere pieces, wool jumpers and coats will look like new again with a bit of TLC and a cashmere comb to remove any pesky pilling. Gently comb the garment every month or so on worn-looking areas. Brands like Clothes Doctor have made an art of the humble cashmere comb, crafting theirs from untreated and uncoloured sustainable beechwood.
It’s not just your knitwear that appreciates less washing. For jeans, jackets, coats and jumpers (as well as bags and shoes), it’s often better to brush away the dirt using a specially crafted brush. Look to elegant Scandi brand Steamery Stockholm for expertly created and beautiful-looking rosewood brushes that gently remove dust, hairs, fur and dirt from your clothes and last far longer than a disposable lint roller.
