4 Tips to Keep Your Apparel Looking Brand New

by Tim McCouch

We all have a go-to outfit, whether it’s for lounging at home or going out with friends. These go-to outfits eventually have an expiration date, because after so many uses, you’ll start to notice some changes in the way it looks and feels. It may look faded, feel stiff, or appear to lose its texture over time. 

It’s important to be mindful about how to take care of your clothing in order to increase its lifespan. Some fabrics and materials require special care, and if you disregard the instructions your clothes can be ruined after only a few wears. Continue reading to learn more about 4 tips to keep your apparel looking brand new: 

Don’t Overwash

Even though you may want to reach for that same polo and pair of pants throughout the week, it’s best to rotate your apparel to prevent overwashing. When you constantly wash your clothes, it can lead to worn out fabrics, dull colors, frayed materials, and rough texture. 

To prevent this from occurring, you can pay close attention to how you wash your clothes. Make sure to read the label instructions on your apparel first, and then decide the proper washer setting, such as delicate. This will eliminate most of the wear-and-tear that washes can inflict. You can also wash clothing inside out, use mesh bags to keep things separated, and use gentle detergent to preserve the longevity of your wardrobe. 

Air Dry Your Clothes

Another way to keep your apparel looking brand new is to air dry everything instead of using the dryer. The use of extreme heat can shrink or damage certain fabrics, so air drying is usually the safest bet. This method of drying also prevents static and reduces wrinkles as well! If time isn't of the essence, you can greatly benefit from air drying versus the use of machine-drying. 

Carry A Stain Stick

If you typically catch yourself dropping food or spilling drinks on your clothes, you can help keep your wardrobe looking fresh by using a stain stick. Stain sticks are easy and convenient to use while on-the-go. They fit perfectly in your pocket, and can be quickly applied to stains to help diminish the appearance and permanence.
