Blog: Busy Moms Can Be Organized Too

You can extend the life of your favorite clothing with some easy strategies guaranteed to keep your wardrobe in its best shape.

Hand-wash your cashmere sweaters. Repeated dry cleaning can hurt the fibers overtime. Therefore, instead, use a mild soap. I recommend using cold water. Then lay the sweater out flat to dry. Another alternative that I like to use is Dryel which is a home cleaning system you use right in your dryer. It's quick and easy and keeps your sweaters in good shape because they are cleaned in their own garment bag.

In order to protect your clothes from fading, iron them inside out or place a cloth between your iron and the fabric. Put your iron on the lowest setting possible for the particular fabric you are ironing to avoid fading as well.

In order to banish hanger dimples, especially from wire hangers (I really don't like wire hangers - don't get me started!), use a steamer to get rid of them. Another alternative that I recommend is replacing your wire or plastic hangers with flocked hangers. They are thin velvet hangers that will better protect your clothing from "dimpling" at the shoulders. The flocked hangers also take up a lot less space in your closet.

In order to keep your socks together when they go into the washer and dryer (because we all know that all those odd socks just disappear into some deep dark hole somewhere in the earth), use a mesh laundry bag. This is one of my favorite tips and I recommend it to my clients all the time. I promise you will never end up with mismatched socks again!

These quick and simple tips will help you take better care of your laundry.
