Maintaining a luxury wardrobe is a daunting task for many! Find out how to keep your luxury clothes in tip-top condition with this handy list of the best laundry tips and tricks.
How To Wash Your Luxury Clothes
The best way to wash your luxury clothes is by hand. This will prevent any damage from occurring to the clothes and even extend the life of a garment. A common issue with washing your clothes in a machine is that it can cause clothing to shrink, wear out, or lose its shape. The first and most important step you should take to care for your luxury clothes is to wash them as infrequently as possible. As mentioned before, you should only wash your clothes when they need it. Woolen items will lose their shape and softness if washed too often, so these should be washed as little as possible as well. If you do need to wash your luxury clothes, avoid using hot water because this could shrink the fibers in the fabric. Instead, use cool or lukewarm water with a mild detergent.
How To Store Luxury Clothes
To protect clothing against the elements, first make sure they are on hangers. Secondly, you can put them in clear plastic garment bags. If you want to use boxes or drawers, then line them with tissue paper or acid-free tissue paper that prevents yellowing and/or wrinkling of the clothes. undefined A hot tip for anyone with expensive designer clothes is to invest in a high-end steamer. This will make sure your clothes are ready to wear when you pull them out of the closet. You should also invest in a protective garment bag for items that can’t be steamed. Good luck with looking after your designer clothing!
Expected Lifespan of Luxury Clothes
The lifespan of a luxury item is difficult to predict. Factors such as how it was manufactured, the materials used, and who wears it can impact how long it will last. In general, most high-end clothing will have a life span of 10 years or more. The life of a designer dress can be greatly extended with the right care.
There are many ways you can prolong the life of your expensive clothes. Firstly, try not to dry clean your clothes too often. Dry cleaning will damage the fibers in your clothes, making them less comfortable. Make sure you read all labels on clothing for washing instructions before throwing clothes into the washer or dryer. If you have a stain on your clothes, blot it with a cloth instead of using water.
Lastly, avoid storing silk and leather with scents because this will ruin the material.
The bottom line? Clean your clothes to maintain their quality, and you’ll be rewarded with luxurious garments.
