Try to keep your dryer use to a minimum. Air drying your clothes is much better for the fabric of your clothes. And don’t you just love seeing a line of fresh laundry drying in the sun? We do! Remember: it’s best not to dry your dark wash in direct sunlight as this will discolour or fade the fabric. Best to hang up your dark laundry in a dark room, such as the attic..
The occasional steam clean at a laundromat isn’t the end of the world, but try not to do it too often. A laundromat tends to use heavy chemicals to clean your clothing, which is pretty bad for them. Is your blazer smelling a little iffy? Put it in a bag and lay it in the freezer for a night. The next morning it’ll smell fresh as a daisy! Also, did you know you’re better off steaming your clothing with a hand steamer or using the steam function on your iron, rather than ironing your clothes? Steam is much quicker and less aggressive than ironing. Hanging up your clothing in the bathroom while you have a hot shower is also a great tool against wrinkles!
