Caring for your outfits !!!!!

During all wardrobe restyling sessions ‘caring for clothes ‘ is  what I always talk about, i hate when the outfits are damaged when you have to put in so much of effort to build a workable wardrobe .

  • Batch similar colors to cut down on loads. T-shirts and shirts can be washed together.
  • A front-loader washing machine is far gentler on your clothes than a top-loader. Hand washing is best, but hey, who has time. (Bonus: front-loaders are usually more efficient in water/power usage and better for the environment)
  • Use less detergent than recommended – past a point more detergent doesn’t mean cleaner, it just builds up in your clothes.
  • Just because it doesn’t smell, doesn’t mean it isn’t dirty
  • Never dry clothes in the sun (except for whites) – it will bleach the colors very quickly.
  • Dry cleaning is very harsh on your clothes, try to keep it to the minimum
  • Dress/Shirts should be washed after every wear. If you wear undershirts/camisoles they can be worn 2 to 4 times before washing, depending on what sort of treatment they get while being worn, what sort of environment you wear them in.
  • NEVER re-iron the dress /shirt after wearing them once – you’re cooking the sweat, dirt, dust etc. into the fabric and significantly increasing the likelihood it will smell after a short time. Ironing a dress /shirt is not the same as washing it – it doesn’t clean it.
  •   If you press the pants yourself, don’t iron directly on the fabric, it will go shiny – use a damp ironing cloth
  • Care with love ..
