Tired of doing laundry day after day? Do you feel a little guilty about all the soap the laundry throws into the environment? The creators of this self-cleaning shirt listen to you.
The HercLeon self-cleaning t-shirt is a garment that can be worn for several days (up to a whole month) without washing it.
Washing, drying and styling: worse, disaster and plague
We put our shirts in the basket of dirty clothes and notice that the basket is full again. Yet. And maybe we just did our laundry the day before. This is the problem with most types of clothing. It is necessary (rightly) to wash them after each use to eliminate odors, stains and sweat.
Washing clothes is a hassle, let's face it. And then there's the environmental concern: constant use of the washing machine releases chemicals into the water and consumes a lot of energy. What if clothes could clean themselves?
The HercLéon self-cleaning T-shirt can
The HercLéon T-shirt is unique because it can be worn for days, even weeks without washing. And even after, when you wash it, it still won't smell bad at the end.
This self-cleaning t-shirt is comfortable to wear, is breathable and anti-odor. Above all, it is designed to accompany us wherever life takes us.
The secret is called copper
The HercLéon t-shirt is made with HercFiber, a copper wire fabric that causes bacteria to continuously decompose. The material is the result of three years of research and development. It combines ultra refined beech wood, copper infused fiber and spandex. The result is a tissue that kills i bacteria that produce odors even before they have a chance to penetrate the fibers of the shirt.
This obviously doesn't mean you have to keep it on 24/24 for a whole month. Just keep it in the air for a few hours after each use and the shirt will be as if it had just been washed.
Plus: it also protects from the sun and cools
This self-cleaning shirt also offers UV protection. You can wear it in the intense sun without worrying about protecting the skin underneath. Of course you will still have to wear sunscreen on your arms and neck to avoid getting a panda tan.
The shoulders, however, an area that receives a lot of sun exposure, will be protected. In addition, HercLéon t-shirts have body temperature regulation properties. This means that the shirt helps maintain a comfortable temperature, regardless of the weather.
The self-cleaning t-shirt also supports the daily exercise routine. It has the ability to absorb moisture and attract it to the outside of the fabric: this facilitates the evaporation of sweat. No more patches under the armpits.
The self-cleaning t-shirt looks like a teen's bonanza
And when, after a month, is it time to wash this self-cleaning t-shirt? Child's play. It dries quickly, much faster than other shirts. And it is more resistant to washing and wringing. It seems like a student, professional or busy parent's dream because it's a piece of clothing that practically takes care of itself.
We all have too much to do every day, we shouldn't be stressed about laundry too. HercLéon makes washing possible without stress.
We live in a constant loop of dirt and washing. We spend a lot of time washing our clothes and throwing detergents in the water.
The HercLéon self-cleaning t-shirt can be the ram that paves the way for a generation of clothes that can be washed with less stress and less pollution.
