5 Quick Tips That Make Your Favourite Clothes Last Longer

Letting go of a favourite piece of clothing, especially if it has worn out rather quickly, can be a heart-breaking experience. At some point of time your entire wardrobe will definitely be replaced. But who would not like to be able to extend the longevity of their favourite clothes? And you don’t need to be an expert to do that. Follow these five quick tips to do it just right.

#1 Read Fabric Care Labels

Every type of fabric needs a different kind of treatment. Unless you are a laundry expert, you need to carefully read the instructions on the labels, for washing powders and detergents. If it says cold machine wash only, you need to follow it. The ones that are labeled for dry cleaning should strictly be dry-cleaned.

#2 Always Sort Your Laundry

Imagine your sheer nylon blouse getting entangled with the metal zipper of your denim. Without a doubt it will be nothing short of a disaster. Also when it comes to drying, some clothes will dry faster than others after being washed with a detergent. This makes sorting your clothes very important.

#3 Know When To Fold, And When To Hang

Increasing your wardrobe’s longevity requires efficient storage strategy. For example, woolen wear have a tendency to get stretched when hung. So it’s best to fold and keep them in a drawer. Similarly shirts and suits need to be hung on wooden hangers for them to retain their shape and in order to relax the creases

#4 Don't Overload the Washer

Cramming more clothes in the washing machine may seem like an effective idea to get more laundry done quickly. But in reality, it does more harm than good. First of all the clothes don’t get washed properly even when the top detergent brands are used.  The second and more crucial point is the fact that the increased rubbing among the clothes damage their texture

#5 Use a Fabric Conditioner

A fabric conditioner like Comfort coats each cloth fibre with a protective layer and prevents the damage caused by repeated detergent washing. Using Comfort fabric softener gives your clothes new-like shine, even over repeated washing and gives your clothes freshness that lasts all day long!
