Tips in Caring for your clothes

We love shopping for gorgeous clothes and perhaps we should know how to take care of them in order for them to stay that way.

The Number One TIP on how to take care of your clothes is : TO CHECK THE LABELS on your clothes before you wash them. But most manufacturers state “dry clean only” on their clothing label in order to free them from any liability if the clothes get damaged after washing.

Most of your clothes are made of cotton because it is the most common natural clothing fiber but if you wash it in high temperature it will shrink so better wash it in cool water.

If you own silk clothes you should know how to take care of them. Some silks must be dry-cleaned and some can be hand-washed in lukewarm water with a gentle detergent.

You could also add fabric conditioner in your wash to make clothes easier to iron.

And speaking of fabric conditioner and laundry detergent, you should try Smart Steps for your baby clothes because they are hypoallergenic, Pedia-recommended and they are great for sensitive skin. Smart Steps has no dyes, no optical brighteners, no enzyme, no artificial colorant, and no bleach so you don’t have to worry about anything.
