Garment Care & Hygiene
We understand that you may want to wash items during your rental so that you can use them multiple times. We just ask that you follow the garments' care labels and iron all garments inside out.
You can find a full list of washing Do’s and Dont’s here.
We ask you not to wash fine knitwear and other delicate materials at home.
Let our concierge team know and we will professionally clean them for you free of charge using our state-of-the-art wet cleaning and ozone technology. You will just need to cover the cost of sending them to our London studio and back by whatever method you prefer!
Our ethos is all about sharing the love and giving garments the longest possible lifecycle for the benefit of our planet! With that in mind we ask that you respect our luxury garments as though they were your own so that as many families as possible can enjoy them after you.
Our in-house eco-laundry facility uses innovative technology to remove stains, kill germs and fully disinfect our garments to European standards. This process makes our garments cleaner than any you could buy from a shop. All clothes are then checked to ensure they pass our quality control before being sent to their next home.
We take care of the washing so you don’t have to! Return your Babu garments dirty and cut your laundry load in half!
Our in-house wet cleaning programme, using state-of-the-art machines, achieves the same results as dry cleaning (which is toxic and carcinogenic!) using only biodegradable detergents and low water temperatures with extremely efficient cycles of only 20-30 minutes, all run on 100% green energy!
