Here are some ways to get more use out of your clothes.
Dry only a half load at a time. You clothes get petite looking in the washing machine and larger in the dryer. Whenever you stuff the dryer the clothes take an extended period of time to dry and make your clothes fabric rougher. Mary Zeitler of the Whirlpool Institute of Fabric Science affirms that by drying that a load “clothes will dry faster , more evenly Nd be in better overall condition.”
Pretty soon you will stash the sleeveless T shirts, shorts and miniskirts as it is going to become frosty out there.
A good tip is to put them places where they have some breathing room. If you put them in one of those containers that go under the bed it will capture dampness and allow mildew grow. Crease your clothes, put on a white sheet that is spotless. Envelope its ends near the pile of clothes and do a loose tie and loose knot on top. The sheet is like an envelope, it can let air through but prevents dust and moths to get through.
If you don’t want your garments creased or crushed, clothing consultant Sherrie Matheson explains the clothes in our closet need a 1/2 inch space between them to keep oxygen circulating . It will also keep their color better. If you have too many garments and don’t have enough space to keep your garments that far apart from each other. To give your clothes some time to breathe open your closet door for about an hour. Remember to close it after the hour, don’t keep it open all the time as you are inviting dust.
