Energy Efficient Laundry, Our Tips!
Did you know you can save energy and water, and prolong the life of your clothes by changing the way you do your laundry? With energy prices rising, we reveal how you could save money by using the w’air to clean your clothes.
We all know that over-washing clothes can cause damage, shrinkage and fading, but it’s also bad for the environment. Over 90% of all clothes washed in a washing machine aren’t actually dirty enough*, so what is the alternative?
Johnsons brings w’air to England
We've teamed up with Johnsons to offer trainer cleaning via their online service and in selected stores across the North West (Lancaster, Chorley, Wilmslow and Altrincham) and North East (York, Hull, Jesmond and Harrogate).
It’s the same quality clean you would expect from w’air, but completed by a trainer cleaning expert, so you can go about your day and pick them up box-fresh later. You can even buy a fresh pair of laces while you are there.

the tipping point for sustainable fashion
Only construction and agriculture have heavier carbon footprints than the fashion industry and, for the past two decades, it has performed like an industry on steroids. In 2014, the world produced twice as much clothing as it did in 2000. Naturally, consumers have responded to this overproduction by overconsuming. Today, we buy around 60 percent more clothing but keep those garments in the closet for only half as long.

Trustpilot rates us as EXCELLENT
Don't just take our word for it, here are some of our 5-star reviews:
"Great device for use on multiple occasions. Used it on my trainers first and found it effective and easy to use. Then tried it on some carpet stains and it generally did a good job. Finally, it’s really good for freshening up stuff - got the garden furniture cushions out of the loft and sprayed them down - it worked a treat and got rid of the mustiness immediately."
