With the New Year fast approaching and the holiday season in full swing, I am sure that you are beginning to shift your focus to 2018. The New Year offers an exciting new set of possibilities and the chance to start fresh with a new set of resolutions. Regardless of your resolutions, a clean and well taken care of wardrobe will only help accent the new you.
Read Those Tags
Every item in your closet has its own set of washing instructions. Make sure to look at the label on the inside of each garment and follow those instructions. By following these instructions, you will ensure that your clothes remain looking new for years to come.
Certain clothes are too delicate for a wash cycle and thus should be taken to the dry cleaner. We recommend that you bring those clothes to us and let us care for them properly. We are an ecofriendly dry cleaner that offers a free pick-up and delivery service and would love to help you with all your dry-cleaning needs.
Clean Out Your Closet
Cleaning out your closet is another way to positively transition into the New Year. A decluttered closet not only looks better, it is also an important way to keep your clothes in excellent condition. A crowded closet not only wrinkles clothes, overcrowding also wears down sensitive fibres and fabrics. Make sure to create space so that each individual garment can hang free.
Hang, Fold or Store
It is a good idea to take care of your clothes once they have been cleaned. Make sure to hang or fold your clothes immediately after they have dried, to ensure a wrinkle free garment.
Here are some tips for proper garment care:
- Always fold clothes along the seams to avoid unwanted creases and to maintain the garment’s shape.
- Always clean seasonal wear before storing it. This will ensure that when you pull these clothes out to use them they are clean and free from bugs, scents and stains.
- Invest in a drying rack or clothesline to hang clothes to dry. Avoiding the dryer will give your clothes a longer lifespan and will prevent any unwanted shrinking.
A quality set of hangers is a great investment if you want to keep your clothes looking new for years to come. Wire and plastic hangers can stretch out your clothes over time, which will affect the shape of that particular garment. Instead, invest in a hanger with push arms or wooden hangers that will keep the shape of your clothes.
Do the Necessary Repairs
Just because a piece of clothing is missing a button or has a missing stitch, does not mean that it is junk. Rather a quick fix can breathe new life into any garment in need of repair. We have an excellent seamstress on site that can help you with any of your alteration or repair needs.
By following these few simple tips, you should be able to keep your wardrobe looking clean and new for years to come. If you have any questions about garment care, please feel free to contact us today. We look forward to working with you.
