Simple Tricks to Make Your Clothing Last Longer


Clothing is expensive, and replacing it can often hurt your wallet. Making sure that you look after your clothing correctly, whether it's packed away for a season, in the wash or on your body, is a smart to ensure your clothing lasts longer. Here are some genius ways you probably haven't thought of that will keep your clothing looking great for years to come.

  • Fold woollen jerseys around coat hangers to help keep the shape of their shoulders.
  • Make sure that all zippers are properly closed before throwing them in the wash.
  • Wash any clothes that can fade easily inside out to help hold the colour.
  • Use newspaper or packaging paper inside winter boots to help them keep their shape.
  • Rub beeswax on fabric shoes to waterproof them and prevent water damage.
  • Freeze nylon stockings overnight to prevent laddering before wearing them.
  • Paint shirt buttons with clear nail polish to prevent the threads from breaking and losing buttons.
  • Prevent bras from stretching out by hooking them from the back.
  • Don't over wash your clothing, some items don't need to be washed after every use.
  • Make sure to zip zippers and button buttons when storing coats and jackets in summer to keep their shape.

With these simple tricks, your favourite clothes will be looking like new for years to come. Keep your clothes and your wallet looking great and stay fashionable.
