Your Wardrobe Is an Investment
Your wardrobe is an important investment and it helps to know how to lengthen the life of each piece you have.
Here are some tips to do that.
1. Read the care labels. Always check the care labels on your clothes for specific washing and drying instructions. They provide important information on water temperature, recommended detergents, and any special care requirements.
I usually turn my clothes inside out as an additional precaution from them getting damaged during the wash.
2. Sort laundry. Sort your laundry into different piles based on the fabric type, color, and level of dirtiness. This will prevent colors bleeding onto lighter clothes and ensure that delicate fabrics are treated gently.
3. Wash with care. Use the appropriate water temperature and gentle cycle settings recommended on the care label. Separate whites, darks, and colors to avoid color transfer. Consider using a laundry bag for delicate items to prevent damage. And use a mild detergent suitable for your clothes; avoid using too much detergent as it can leave residue.
4. Treat stains promptly. Pre-treat any stains as soon as possible using stain removers or a gentle soap. Gently blot the stain rather than rubbing it, as rubbing can spread it further. Wash the garment soon after treating the stain.
5. Dry properly. Check the care label to see if the garment can be dried in a machine or if it needs to be air-dried. If using a dryer, set it to the proper heat and cycle. For delicate items, it is often best to air-dry them to prevent damage. Avoid over-drying as it can cause shrinkage or damage fabrics.
6. Use the appropriate temperature setting and proceed with caution if ironing is required. Check the care label for the appropriate temperature setting and iron on the reverse side of the fabric if possible. For delicate materials, use a pressing cloth to protect the fabric from direct heat or use a professional dry cleaner.
7. Store properly. Fold or hang your clothes properly to avoid excessive wrinkling or stretching. Make sure the top fits evenly on the hangar and be sure to button up if there are button closures. Use padded hangers for delicate items. Consider storing seasonal clothing in airtight containers to protect them from dust and pests like moths.
8. Don’t forget to clean scarves and other accessories. They need to be cleaned just like other items in your wardrobe.
By following these tips, you can help to extend the lifespan of your clothes and keep them looking their best.
