The fundamental and most common tip for giving long life to your clothing is keeping a few simple points in your mind while washing them. Always follow the color separation method, wash light, dark and white colors in turns. This might take a little extra time but it’s worth it. Also, turn them inside out before putting it inside your washing machine. Avoid dryer whenever possible, it squashes your clothes and depletes their luster and shine. Other than that, always read the washing instructions carefully mentioned on the label. In addition, wash them in cold Water because that also helps in increasing the life of your clothes.
- STRICT CLEANING REGIME
Your footwear needs time to time cleaning. Wash or dry-clean your shoes at least once in a week. What’s the most important is, do not forget to read the washing/cleaning instruction that are usually tagged along the shoe or any label placed inside the shoebox.
- ALTERNATE CLOTHING
Avoid wearing the same pair of shoes, pants or shirts for two consecutive days. Let your footwear and clothes air out. It is an important step because it helps in keeping them odor free.
If you plan to wear the same set of clothes again without washing, which happens usually in case of woolen wear, then make sure that you hang them out of your closet in open air for an hour or two. Once the body odor leaves your clothes, it is equally important to fold them in a proper manner before setting them in your wardrobe. The same rule applies to your shoes; let them rest out of your shoe-rack for some time after wearing and before placing them in the rack.
