Caring for your clothes

“Certainly this is a duty, not a sin. "Cleanliness is indeed next to godliness."”
John Wesley

Caring for your clothes is a important as acquiring them!
Over the years you have spent so much money acquiring clothing and accessories.
Dont forget that the clothes make you beautiful.
Its therefore very important to care for them properly.

For your clothes to serve you excellently and for an extended period , its important to properly store them.

  1. Hang them! People tend to leave their clothes on piles all around their room! Invest in a good, big, multifunctional wardrobe.
  2. Fold your jeans and tshirts.
  3. Wash your clothes regularly, dirt actually ruins them.
  4. Fix  the little problems; a missing button, a tear etc.
  5. Check for washing instructions on all your clothes.
  6. Dry clean, DON'T wash your suits.
  7. Remove stains with the right detergents, the wrong bleaches or detergents could further damage the outfit.
  8. When using a washing machine use fabric softener.
  9. Have a designated laundry basket or bag to prevent dirty clothes from getting mixed up with the clean ones.
  10. If you havent worn a piece of clothing for 2 years, give it out. Create room for the new ones.
