We all wish we could wear our clothes once and then have them changed, but that does not happen. Many of us are forced to wear our garments for as long as possible.
We may not be able to buy clothes as frequently as we would like, but we can take precautions to ensure that our clothes last much longer.
Here are five easy strategies to help your clothes last longer.
1. When washing your garments, use cold water.
Hot water should be avoided, especially with fragile fabrics. Hot water causes your garments to fade and lose their color. It also weakens the cloth, making it more susceptible to injury.
2. Wash garments by hand as much as possible.
If you have delicate or soft clothes, try hand-washing it instead of placing it in the washing machine. That way, you won't damage the fabric or embellishments.
3. Keep A Stain Remover In Your Purse.
When it comes to stain removal, the first guideline is to act promptly. The latest advances in stain removal convenience are stain removal pens and wipes.
Carefully follow the instructions and make sure to follow up when you return home. The pens are fantastic, but they aren't magical; you must still wash the clothing to avoid damage.
4. Wash Them Less
The simplest way to extend the life of your garments is to wash them less frequently. Many of your garments, especially sweaters, can be worn numerous times before being washed.
Most goods suffer more wear and tear in the washing machine than on your body! When you do throw in a load, make sure to wash and dry knitted garments and T-shirts with designs inside out.
5. Do not wash all of your clothes at the same time.
It is well worth the extra couple of days to wait until you have all of the same color items to toss in the washer. Otherwise, those lovely white tops you have will turn pink after being washed with the red top you wore last night, which is not a nice appearance for anyone.
6. Follow Instructions On Laundry Tags.
If your favorite wool product is beginning to show signs of wear and it's time to wash it, there's one golden rule to remember: always check your garment's care labels and directions to help extend the life of your product.
