Clothes today have become quite a statement and keeping them looking good is important to individuals. More and more people are purchasing designer wear, which often needs special care. Use the following hints and tips to ensure your clothes keep looking fresh and stylish.
Use the garments care label - all clothes manufacturers indicate clearly on the garment label the instructions to correctly wash the fabric. If this is followed correctly the garment should have maximum life expectancy. If the garment is washed wrongly the fabric will be affected in many ways, e.g. colour loss, shrinkage and stretching.
Remove laundry promptly - leaving laundry in the machine for long periods of time will cause excess creasing which can affect the life and appearance of the garment. To keep you garments looking good remove from the machine on the same day it was washed.
Use correct detergents for colours and whites - to prolong the colours in garments ensure that Colour detergent is used, as this does not contain bleach or fluorescents, which gives clothes a faded look. For white clothes ensure you do not use Colour detergents are the white fabric needs the bleach and fluorescents to keep bright.
Wash inside out - washing garments in side out will protect the correct side of all your clothes. Any wear and tear that could build up during the washing process will only show on the inside, which no one will see.
