10 Ways To Make Your Clothes Last Longer

10 Ways To Make Your Clothes Last Longer

When we invest in clothes with purpose and intention, we love them enough to want to make them last.  Here are 10 tips for caring for your clothes.
  • Wash your clothes inside out. This will help protect the fabric from fading and damages from the washing machine.
  • Use a gentle cycle and cold water when washing your clothes. This will help keep the fabric strong and look new for longer.

  • Hang dry your clothes. Avoid using the dryer as the heat can break down the material faster and lead to fading.

  • Avoid using fabric softeners as they can break down the fabric fibers and cause fading.
  • Spot treat stains as soon as possible. The longer a stain sits, the harder it will be to remove.  My favorite is Grandma's Secret Spot Remover & Laundry Spray.
  • Invest in quality pieces that are made of durable materials. This will ensure that your clothes will last longer and keep their shape.

  • Store your clothes in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Sunlight can cause fading and damage the fabric.
  • Rotate the clothes you wear. This will help reduce wear and tear on certain pieces, making them last longer.

  • If clothing is wrinkled, I prefer steaming over ironing (it's quicker, easier and less likely to damage the garment).  Not only does steaming remove wrinkles but it can kill up to 99% of germs and bacteria.  The steamer I personally use is this one from Amazon.
  • Take your clothes to a professional for repairs when needed. This will help extend the life of your clothes.

Hope this helps!
