Just a few simple rules will help extend the life of your favorite things. Saving, eco-friendly consumption and a neat appearance are obvious advantages of proper clothing care.
Wash dark clothes inside out
Dark fabrics often fade during washing and fade over time. Nevertheless, there is a great way to “slow down” this process – it is enough to turn the dark thing inside out and add conditioner to the drum before washing to protect the color.
Whether it’s trendy jeans or a T-shirt, things will keep shades saturated and vibrant for a long time.
Correctly store things in the closet
Some people use plastic covers for storage or even randomly put clothes in a closet. And in vain. The first option is harmful, since plastic prevents the fabric from breathing and retains moisture, which causes the fabric to turn yellow. In the second case, the clothes may not be combined in material with each other, hence the appearance of unpleasant folds and microcracks.
The best way to store them is with special clothing organizers that protect but allow the fabric to air. How to organize the space in the wardrobe? Sort things not by color, but by season.
We use wooden shoe pads
A lot of shoes? Do not throw it in a heap. Otherwise, folds, wrinkles and cracks will not take long. Avoiding trouble is easy – periodically insert wooden pads into your shoes. A simple invention will retain the shape of the shoe for a long time.
Before you put your shoes in the closet, we carry out simple care procedures. To start, wipe the skin with a cloth or soft brush or remove dust from suede. Next, we use skin wax and cream conditioner (by type of material) to maintain the softness and color of the shoes.
We wash clothes less often
We all like fresh and clean things, but how much does washing like your favorite T-shirt or turtleneck? Frequent machine washing leads to fast fading, stretching and microdamage of even the most practical fabrics, such as cotton or denim. Try to stretch the life of the item until a new wash – often change sets of clothes and ventilate them after wearing.
Take care of vintage clothing
Metal models can leave traces of rust and make stretch marks. The fabric is colored and the old fiber is cracked. Stylish vintage clothing at 30 degrees. Only in horizontal position.
Grease the lightning
Metal zippers quickly become obsolete and deteriorate, but there is a way out. Periodically grease the entire surface of the fastener on both sides with a graphite pencil or petroleum jelly. In order not to stain the fabric, you can seal the area next to the zipper with tape and tear it off only after 15 minutes. After such procedures, the lightning will work properly.
