How To Take Better Care Of Your Garments?

Some clothes in our wardrobe are our all-time favourite pieces, so it is no surprise that we want those clothes to last for a very long time. At Spotlight, you can find all kinds of garment care products, which will help you extend the lifespan of your favourite clothes.

At Spotlight, we can also provide you with some helpful tips on how to extend the lifespan of your favourite garments. So, if you want some additional tips, be sure to check our overview below.

What Is The First Tip To Extend The Life Of My Garments?

While you may have heard this before, but quality does matter when it comes to clothing. The material your clothes are made from will have a serious influence on their longevity.

When you head to the store to update your wardrobe, quality is always something to keep in mind. Always check the label of the clothing, or check information online, to see which materials your clothing is made of. Remember, fabrics such as cotton and polyester with a high thread count are likely to last longer.

What Is The Second Tip To Extend The Life Of My Garments?

The way you wash your clothing can have an influence on their lifespan. Below, we have laid out the washing and drying rules you must apply to get more from your clothing.

When washing dark clothing, always wash it inside out. Darker materials are subject to fading, especially when they rub against other clothing in the washing machine. Turning them inside out will give your darker clothes some added protection.

Sticking your clothes in the tumble dryer might be quicker, but it is not the best for your clothing. In fact, studies have shown that clothing lasts considerably longer when dried on a clothesline or drying rack. However, don't forget that direct sunlight is bad for your colours, so try to keep that clothesline in a nice shady spot.

What Is The Third Tip To Extend The Life Of My Garments?

Do you have a favourite shirt that you will grab just as soon as it comes out of the dryer? If so, it might be a good idea to look at your current clothing rotation.

When we talk about clothing rotation, we are talking about how much you wear each individual item in your wardrobe. If you wear certain pieces of clothing more often than others, it is extremely likely that those clothing pieces will wear out a lot faster. So, rotating your clothing more often can extend the lifespan of several pieces.

Naturally, there could be some clothes in your wardrobe you do not like wearing at all. If this is the case, it may be time to get rid of those garments and head over to your favourite clothing store. Not only is it the perfect time to add to your wardrobe, some new clothing can help to spare your existing pieces in your closet.

What Is The Fourth Tip To Extend The Life Of My Garments?

We discussed everything from clothing rotation to washing, but we have not mentioned the actual storage of your clothing. Naturally, correct storage can also contribute to a longer lifespan for your favourite garments.

Opposed to what many people believe, it is actually better to fold your sweaters than hang them in your wardrobe. Some sweaters can be rather heavy, especially wool ones. So, by hanging them, it is a lot easier for those sweaters to get overstretched. Simply fold them to add a couple more years to their life and keep them in the right shape.

Before you put your favourite buttoned shirt in the wardrobe, make sure you button it up. It is easy for a button to get lost or for an open zipper to get damaged, so make sure those fasteners are closed before you store them.

Finally, you can get some convenient storage solutions for your clothing at Spotlight. We also provide special fabric brushes and other accessories, which you can use to maintain your favourite garments before you store them.
