Everyday wear and tear can leave your clothes looking drab. After all the time and effort spent shopping for the perfect outfit, the last thing you want is to have to put them in a garage sale after just a season or two. Knowing how to properly store and care for your clothes can make for a great wardrobe . Here are some of the tips from Jennifer’s article. To read more helpful tips go to http://www.womansday.com/

*You may think you’re protecting your clothes by stashing them in the plastic from the dry cleaner’s, but letting your clothing stay under cover is one of the worst things you can do. Fibers need to breathe

*Cramming clothes into every last crevice of your closet will only end up crushing your clothes. (Oh boy, I’m glad you can’t see my closet…guess this one was meant for me!)

*Resist the urge to spritz perfume or hairspray as your last step to getting dressed. The alcohol within can stain and take the color out of what you’re wearing, especially if it’s silk.

*Sort your stuff before washing. It works wonders to preserve the color.

*Cottons have a tendency to wrinkle, so it’s a good idea to add a liquid starch to the final rinse to make the fabric crisper when ironing it.
