We spend quite a lot of money on clothing. This happens whether you’re a shopaholic or not. Children tend to grow out of clothing often and you will need to replace them fairly frequently. As you get older, you will be able to keep your clothes for a longer time, provided that they are well preserved. You need to take the right care of clothes when you wash and clean them.
Sometimes we have busy schedules and it can be hard to take care of washing clothes. You will have a big pile of clothing to take care of especially if you have children. In such a case, you will be able to use a laundry service for all your fabric washing and cleaning needs. This is actually a good option for the washing of delicate clothing and formal wear such as dresses, jackets, suits etc. They will take good care of such clothing and return them to you in more or less the original condition.
The key to preserving your clothes is to buy clothing that is of good quality. It will be easier to take care of them when they are made of a good material. You don’t have to buy expensive garments for every occasion. Simply spend a bit more money on classic pieces that you can use for a long time. This is more in the line of formal and office wear. For example, invest in classic pieces such as a business suit, crisp button-up shirts, comfortable shoes, a good coat, formal dress etc. The same consideration doesn’t have to apply when it comes to buying children’s clothes as they grow very quickly.
Most clothing comes with a tag that gives you instructions to follow when you wash. It’s better to heed these instructions as it will help the clothes last longer. The reputable laundry shop will know exactly how to treat each material and remove stains from any fabric. They will have a professional staff that knows exactly how to take care of your clothes. Not only that, they will take good care of linens, drapes, curtains, carpets etc. so that they are returned to you clean and smelling fresh.
A couple of things you should remember are to wash dark clothing inside out so that they don’t fade out fast and wash your light clothing separate from the darks. It is better not to use a dryer and instead use a clothesline or a drying rack to dry your clothes. Your clothes will fare much better when they dry naturally. It’s better if you keep it in a windy place that is out of reach of direct sunlight. Sometimes direct sunlight can bleach colours. If your clothing has metal components such as buttons or zippers, it is better to wash them separately to prevent tangling or melting. It is also important that you are knowledgeable about the setting on your machine. There’s a different setting for delicate and another for general purpose washing. Your clothes will also fare better of you practice good hygiene such as daily showering, wearing proper undergarments and use of deodorant. Make sure you wear appropriate clothing that fits the occasion.
