Hanging vs folding:

It’s important to know which clothes to hang and which you should fold. Folding should be reserved for the heavier fabrics like wool and knitwear but items such as suits and shirts can be folded.

Take a break:

There‘s no way that you won’t have moisture and sweat residue from the clothes you wear. Thus, take  a break from the clothes you wear often and wear something else for a change.

Separate colors:

Every time you do your laundry, always make it a point of duty to wash different color groups separately. It may be a big frustration but it will save you the stress and agony of your favorite shirt looking like your worst shirt.
