10 Tips to Make Your Clothing Last

10 Tips to Make Your Clothing Last

Taking good care of your kids' clothes is an important part of making sure they last for years. Here are some tips to help you do just that: 

  1. Read labels and follow washing instructions. Different fabrics require different care, so make sure you pay attention to the tags and the recommended washing instructions to ensure your clothes last as long as possible. Check out our Coat Care Guide to keep your Appaman outerwear in perfect shape.
  2. Wash your clothes in cold water. Hot water can cause colors to fade and fabrics to shrink.
  3. Avoid overloading the washing machine. Too much laundry can cause your clothes to rub against each other, which can lead to pilling and damage.
  4. Don't leave wet clothes in the washer for too long. Leaving them in the washer for too long can cause mildew to form.
  5. Hang clothes to dry. Hang-drying your clothes will help them last longer and will also save energy.
  6. Don't iron clothes too often. Ironing can cause fabric to weaken over time.
  7. Use fabric softener. Fabric softener can help reduce static cling, wrinkles, and pilling.
  8. Stay away from the dryer. The high heat of a dryer can cause colors to fade and fabric to shrink.
  9. Store clothes in an airtight container. Storing your clothes in an airtight container will help prevent them from getting damaged by dust and moisture.
  10. Invest in quality items. Quality items will last longer than cheaper items. It pays to invest in quality clothing that you can wear for years.
