Tips to Help Make Your Family’s Clothes Last Longer
We spend so much money for our kid’s clothing and it just makes sense to try and make that clothing last as long as possible. I’ve been fortunate that Ryan has been able to wear some of James hand-me-downs, but those hand-me-downs, were actually another someone’s hand-me-downs, and clothes can only last so long. Hand-me-downs or brand new, here are some tips to help make your family’s clothes last longer.
1. Wear jeans and pants two or three times (if not full of stains) before washing. Excessive washing will actually wear out clothing faster, and more importantly, it will mean less washing for you!
2. Simply spot clean a stained article of clothing that is otherwise clean after wearing, instead of running it through the wash.
3. Repair items like jeans by sewing patches on knees with holes. Not into sewing? Look for the iron on patches for holes. Turn jeans inside out and iron on a patch at the knee on the inside for some reinforcement that no one can see!
4. Buy pants with an adjustable waist and that are a bit too long. Iron in a hem that can later be removed. This is one way to get the clothing to grow with your child.
5. Read your clothing’s washing instructions. Use the right wash settings and quality laundry products like Gain and Tide to ensure proper clothing care.
6. Split up your wash loads by color. I typically have four types of loads – white, light, dark and towels. If you wash a red shirt with your whites, you may end up with pinks that no one wants to wear!
7. Refurbish with clothing dye. Refresh color faded or stained clothing by dyeing with a darker color. Kids may enjoy Tye-dying old white t-shirts. There is also reverse Tye-dying, where you use 2 parts bleach to 8 parts water to take the color out of clothing. (Just remember to dilute the bleach with water, as straight bleach with destroy the clothing.) Tye-dying also makes for a great kid’s birthday party activity!
