5 ways to make your clothes last longer to save money

Getting dressed everyday in a place like Nigeria can be very expensive yourself, especially with the higher exchange rates. However, there are a few tips on how you can save money on dressing.

Make your clothes last longer

A lot of people don’t realize that taking care of your clothes is a great way to conserve money and time in terms of fashion. Here are five ways you can achieve that:

Less laundry:

Don’t be so quick to do laundry. There are many clothes that don’t require a wash as soon as they are done. Most likely if it smells good and looks fresh, then it is clean. Otherwise, things like denim and sweaters should be washed with caution for longevity.

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.

Look again:

Check your pockets for anything left over like keys, coins, money and other hard objects that could alter your clothing if left inside while they are being washed.

Check out the tips above and let us know what you think abut it.
