Take care of your goods

As something new here at Consil KBH we have now got the beautifully designed steamer from the Swedish brand the Steamry.

In our shop, we are often asked about washing knit sweaters and various other delicate items. We always recommend washing your knit as little as possible and otherwise wash them by hand.

Steaming provides the safest and gentlest finish for laundry items, releasing wrinkles for a natural finish. Not only does steaming avoid any risks posed from ironing (such as burning and unintended creasing), but the steam kills most germs and bacteria, which helps eliminate odors. A steamer is a great investment. You’ll find it pays for itself very quickly, saving you time and money by reducing drycleaning.

REASONS TO STEAM

  • Steaming kills odor-causing bacteria.
  • Steaming removes allergens that attract dust mites. A key to controlling allergic reactions is controlling the dust mite population in a home.
  • Steam out wrinkles using a steamer to create a more relaxed, casual finish vs. the crisp finish from an iron.
  • Keep items fresh between wearing and washing, especially woolens and dry-clean items. This will both reduce dry cleaning expenses and wear on items!
  • Steaming requires nothing more than water and heat and, therefore, is non-polluting compared with mite eradication methods that require the use of detergents and other chemical agents.

IDEAL FABRICS TO STEAM
The best way to finish woolens, silk, and delicate items is to steam them. Steaming also works great for cotton, linens, and durable synthetic fabrics, providing a casual finish. We opt to iron only when we want an extra-crisp finish.

Wool, Cashmere, Wool Blends & Wool-Like Synthetics Steaming is also ideal for silk and delicate fabrics that cannot take high or direct heat from an iron.

Woolens appear wrinkled after washing, so we steam to release the wrinkles and fluff the yarns. Never iron woolens as this practice can crush or flatten the natural pile of the yarns.
Steaming is also ideal for silk and delicate fabrics that cannot take high or direct heat from an iron.

HOW TO STEAM
1. Hold the steamer nozzle (or head) to hover over the fabric.

2. Drag the steamer over the fabric. It’s ok if you touch the steamer nozzle to the fabric. This will not damage the item.

3. Steam the item, top to bottom. Systematically move from shoulder to the end of each sleeve or from waistband to each pant cuff.

4. If the item has a lining, steam the lining first. Then steam the outside of the item.

70S VIBES

70s vibesFor this fall, the 70's will continue, which is the very source of inspiration. The pants are wider, and generally everything gets loose. The autumn's popular colors become brown and green. Especially the brown color becomes dominant and it is in all shades: Light, dark, tanned. At the same time it also associates with something organic and natural, and all that is outdoors, as the green color also does. It is clearly seen that organic wins in our society these years. Food, wine and clothing must be organic and at the same time we are cleaning up in the recent decades of heavy use of plastic and additives.

Roller collars can make a casual look more formal, which can also be worn under a shirt on the colder days. Another clear proof of the 60's and 70's inspiration.

City guide: Paris

City Guide ParisDuring the fashion week in Paris in June 2017, we made our shopping for spring summer 2018. This trip offered a lot of delicious visits to various restaurants and places. Of course, we would like to share that with you guys!

Paris Season
Paris Season
1. SEASON
1 Rue Charles-François Dupuis, 75003 Paris, www.season-paris.com


Season has built its identity on a basic rule of diet: fresh produce can not be consumed year-round. This is why the card lives with the seasons and is renewed every three months.From kefta dumplings to pastrami sandwiches, to naan, Season offers a kitchen open to the world, healthy and revisited with a touch of French touch.


We just had time to take a small table before a huge queue was formed. The place is popular and it is quite understandable because the food and drinks are delicious. The setting is also very nice and the staff in spite of the influx of customers are still super friendly! We can really recommend their poached eggs with advokado.

    2 Boulevard Barbès, 75018 Paris, www.brasseriebarbes.com

    This place was clearly what impressed us the most. The site is built on 3 floors, we recommend to see if there is room on the 1st floor. It is built like a big greenhouse with bar and restaurant on either side, so beautiful. The food was so good and surprisingly cheap compared to the standard you got! We got snails in garlic and oysters for starters (when in Paris) and French country chicken and risotto to the main course.
