Thrifty Tip #54: Taking care of your clothing will help them last much longer...which will in turn save money!
Here are some handy tips to help make the most of your clothing:
*Invest in drying racks! We hang everything to dry (except bedding, towels, socks, and underthings). This helps clothing keep it's original shape without shrinking and also keeps colors bright.
*For the most part, jeans and sweaters can be worn more than one time without being washed. This is somewhat tricky with children--there's a lot of inspecting going on before I make the call. Undershirts are a great way to save sweaters from harmful deodorants or perspiration.
*Keeping clothing neatly put away or hung up will ensure that the clothing stays looking nice, neat, and moderately wrinkle free!
