Sustainability Tips: How to Take Care of Your Clothes to Make Them Last Forever!

Ok... maybe not forever, but one of the best things you can do to live more sustainably is taking care of the clothes you own. 

Taking care of your clothes is essential to making them last as long as possible!

Here are 10 tips to help you do just that:

  1. Read the care label: Each piece of clothing comes with a care label that includes information on how to properly wash and care for the item. Make sure to read this label!

  2. Sort your laundry: Before washing your clothes, sort them by color and fabric type.

  3. Use the right temperature: Different fabrics require different water temperatures for washing. For example, delicate fabrics such as silk  should be washed in cold water.

  4. Use the right detergent: Not all detergents are created equal. Make sure to use a detergent that is appropriate for the type of fabric you are washing.

  5. Avoid putting too much in the washing machine: Overloading the washing machine can cause clothes to become stretched out or misshapen.

  6. Hang dry: Whenever possible, hang dry your clothes instead of using a dryer. The heat from a dryer can cause shrinkage and damage to fabrics. If you must use a dryer, use the lowest heat setting and remove clothes while slightly damp.

  7. Ironing: Iron your clothes only as needed.

  8. Store clothes properly: Store clothes in a cool, dry place. Avoid storing clothes in damp or humid areas.

  9. Invest in quality: High-quality fabrics and construction are more durable and resistant to wear and tear.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your clothes last as long as possible!
