Clothing Care Tips that Will Save You Money
Clothing, especially your favorite garment, career wardrobe, party dresses, special occasion garment is an expensive INVESTMENT, and taking proper care of your clothing can save you considerable money over time, not to mention the time and frustration of having to repair/alter expensively or replace garments unnecessarily.
Excessive cleaning of clothing wears it out sooner. Some garments can be worn more than once before washing or cleaning if you give them just a little care when you remove them. Check the garment when you take it off, looking for spots, tears, lint, or anything else that would send it to the dirty clothes hamper. Garments that appear clean and smell fresh should be hung for wearing again. Jackets especially need to be brushed with a clothes brush paying particular attention to the shoulders and hung on a padded hanger. You can save money on the clothes themselves, as well as on laundry products and wear and tear on your washing machine by wearing garments again that aren’t soiled.
A stitch in time does save nine. Repair small problems right away by bringing it to Paras Alter Station. Sewing a few stitches to repair a tiny tear is much easier than having to sew an entire seam and less expensive than replacing the item if it becomes irreparable.
Use good quality hangers that support your clothes. Flimsy wire hangers allow clothes to sag out of shape. Over time they may even cause damage to the shoulders of garments.
Don’t crowd clothes in your closet, as crowding causes wrinkles, which must then be removed. Ironing them again not only wastes your time, but also adds to the wear and tear on your clothes. Storing out of season clothes in another location makes more room in your closet so that your garments aren’t crushed.
Sweaters should be folded and placed in drawers, on shelves, or in storage boxes. Be sure that wool garments, in particular, are clean when stored to deter insects that may smell a banquet on the sleeve of your sweater. It’s disheartening to pull out your favorite sweater and discover a moth hole.
Following the cleaning instructions on the garment label will save your clothes from damage. Hot water will shrink rayon, wool, silk, and other fabrics. It will also fade some colors. Heat from the dryer may also shrink garments. Clothing that has shrunk doesn’t fit properly and must be altered or worst replaced.
If you don’t like to wash items by hand, check labels for cleaning instructions before you purchase garments. Buy items that say machine washable. Machine washable clothing also saves on dry cleaning costs. By using a lingerie bag and cold or warm water on the gentle cycle, you can successfully machine wash some delicate items.
Treat spots and stains as soon as possible. If you take the article to a dry cleaner, point out any spots so that they can be given extra attention. It also helps if you can identify what caused the stain. If the garment is washable, use a spot remover that is appropriate for the type of stain and the type of fabric. Follow the instructions for stain remover products such as Spray ‘N Wash or Shout. If you’re unsure about color-fastness, test the product on an inside seam before using on the stain.
Sort laundry before washing. Wash fabrics according to light or dark colors. You don’t want dark colors to bleed color onto your light colored clothes. Washing delicate fabrics separate from sturdy fabrics protects the delicate materials, which might be damaged by rubbing against coarse fabrics. Wash items that produce lint, such as terry cloth towels, separately for obvious reasons. Otherwise, it will all lead to damage or replace your garments.
Use an adequate amount of detergent when you wash clothes as well as chlorine if needed, but avoid using too much because it will cause garment thinning. Check the rinse cycle when the washer is full of water. There should not be an excessive amount of suds in the water. By using the proper amount, you can save on the cost of detergent as well as water for a second rinse. Detergent left in clothing can irritate your skin and weakens the fibers of clothes.
When you iron or press clothes, use the proper heat setting for the type of fabric. An iron that is too hot can ruin fabrics in an instant. Pressing very delicate fabrics should be done with care, and using a press cloth adds another layer of protection.
Protect your clothes by wearing appropriate garments for the occasion. Don’t work on the car in a good dress shirt, for instance. Changing out of your good clothes before attempting dirty tasks will save the clothes from potential damage and will save you time and money in repairing or replacing them.
Thinking of your wardrobe as an investment will reap benefits. Taking proper care of your clothes will make them last longer and stretch your clothing budget. And just think of the time you will save not having to alter or shop for clothes that wear out too soon.
Clothing Storage Tips
If you live in a climate where there is more than one season, you should store off-season clothing carefully to avoid damage from insects, mildew and mold. Be sure to wash and dry all garments thoroughly before storing. Do not store clothes in plastic bags or airtight containers. Rattan trunks are perfect for storing clothing, as they allow the clothing to breathe when air circulates through the rattan. Here are a few tips for safe storage of different types of clothing.
Leather and suede should be stored in a closet that is cool and well ventilated. The garments are best covered with white muslin that’s been washed. Supple leather garments should be laid flat and padded well with white tissue.
Rayon should also be stored flat. If the garment has to be hung, pad it with white tissue and cover it with clean, white muslin.
Linen garments should be rolled. If you feel you must fold them, be sure to refold often to avoid fabric from becoming permanently creased. Always cover with white muslin that’s been washed.
Knitted and silk fabrics should always be stored flat. If you feel you must hang these garments, be sure to pad well with white tissue and cover it with clean, white muslin.
Garments made of metallic fabric should be rolled with clean, white muslin or tissue paper separating each layer.
Fur garments need to be stored in a cool, dark place. Cover fur with clean, white muslin. However when storing fur, professional cold storage is best.
Wool should be thoroughly cleaned, padded and wrapped in white tissue. Add mothballs to the storage area to prevent moth damage.
