Tips To Take Care of your Expensive Clothes:

Designer clothes are not cheap in cost or in quality. In fact, they are an expensive investment in everyone’s wardrobe. So how do you extend the life of your designer clothes? With gentle hand washing to dry cleaning you can easily extend the life of your designer clothes. Start with these steps:

Step1: 
Limit the amount of wearings. Exercise restraint; although you’ve fallen in love with that irreplaceable dress, wearing this fashionable frock every other day will weaken the garment’s fibers. When purchasing designer clothes, determine how often you will wear the item to keep it in pristine condition for years.

Step2:
Dry clean regularly. The costly designer fabrics used to construct these expensive creations demand a superior cleaning regimen. Make an appointment each week with the dry cleaner to launder your clothes. The high-cost of designer clothes demands a specialist who is familiar with techniques to preserve your expensive wardrobe pieces.

Step3:
Store your designer clothes after each season. Make detailed plans for storage. Separate clothes by seasons and categories. Purchase garment bags to store your designer frocks. Send your fine furs and leathers to a furrier for leaning.

Step4:
Keep your closet well-ventilated and moth free. Don’t pack your closet to its full capacity. Create one inch of space between each hanger in your closet. Instead of using smelly moth balls, hand cedar blocks into your closet, to prevent any clothes-loving insects from damaging your designer clothes.

Step5:
Dry clean your designer clothes before placing the items into long periods of storage. Remove the plastic dry cleaning bags after laundering to prevent damage to the expensive fabric used to create most designer clothes.

Step 6:
Make sure you put your clothes on a hanger when you get undressed at night if they are going to be worn again. Put everything else into the hamper to be washed. Never just put your clothes into a ball, and drop them on the floor. Protect the fabric, and the items will last and always look nice.

Step 7:
Prevent getting food stains on your shirts or blouses by bringing the spoon 'to' your mouth, and gently sip the contents, so as to prevent dripping. When eating pasta or gravey dish, hold the napkin between your shirt or blouse and the food, again, move your mouth to the fork.

Step 8:
Dab ice water or seltzer onto food stains immediately , so it does not set. Do not rub.


Step 9:
Wash your clothes often. Use a gentle wash cycle for delicates. Do not use liquid bleach in the wash. Separate colors from whites. Pure soap with a handful of bicarbonate (baking) soda is a much better, safer and more environmentally friendly bleach than White King. Chemical bleaches are extremely bad for your health, and don't properly wash out of your clothes.

Step 10:
Try not to use a dryer at all. Dryers wear out your clothes and fade their colours more quickly than drying in sunlight. Drying in sunlight or in the open air is also a much healthier way of drying your clothes - sunlight is a natural disinfectant. And lastly, clothes-dryers use an enormous amount of electricity, contributing to the greenhouse effect and your electricity bill. Try drying your clothes on clothes-racks if the weather is not good, and ironing them when still slightly damp. Much better for your clothes and for the environment. If you absolutely have to use a dryer, use it on the warm setting and clear the lint filter after every load. If the temperature is too hot, your clothes will come out all wrinkled. If your dryer has a delicate cyle use it. Make sure you do not leave the dryer on, longer than necessary.

Step 11:
Remove the clothes from the dryer and hang them up immediately. Button the top button on shirts, and hang blouses neatly on the hanger. Slacks should go on a special pants hanger, that clips over the top of the waist. Smooth the fabric with your hand, so as to avoid wrinkles. Iron out any wrinkles that might occur.

Step 12:
Fold all other garments neatly and place in the dresser drawers

Step 13:
Hang your clothes in the closet, and make sure they are not all crowded or crushed together. They need breathing room or they will become all wrinkled and slip off the hangers and land on the floor.
