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.
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.
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.
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.
