How to keep your clothes looking like new

It’s always a little heartbreaking when your favorite crisp cotton white shirt develops that pesky yellow tint or a pair of jeans that fit you perfectly start to fade.

There are ways to make sure the best pieces in your wardrobe don’t lose their appeal, but that means you’ll have to be a little more careful with the washing process.

Here’s how you can get the most out of your clothes:

  1. Pay attention to the washing cycles

Usually there is a tag on your clothes that gives you advice on how to wash that specific piece. For example, you’re supposed to wash cotton in cold water on a delicate cycle. Heat, even in the dryer, can cause cotton to shrink.

For bright colors, Breeze High Efficiency Liquid Laundry Detergent has been proven to maintain vibrancy without risking being too harsh, so it may also be worth switching up if you are not already using this product.

  1. Try to prevent pilling

How many times have you had to comb through a wool sweater or cotton socks to remove those little balls of lint after washing? It’s probably enough to make you stop wearing some of your clothes.

Fabric blends usually lead to this type of occurrence, but it’s not so easy to avoid when buying, so it’s best to take care of it in the washer.

Try turning your clothes inside out before washing them to prevent pilling. Breeze HE also guarantees that their formula, coupled with a better washer label, could keep you from looking like you’ve been through a field of lint.

  1. Do not mix textures

Not all textures can be washed together. Although your favorite t-shirt and last week’s towel are both cotton, it’s not always the best idea to wash them together. In order to keep your towels, bedding, and even curtains soft, it’s best not to mix them with clothes.

Wash them according to their specific textures and requirements. Broken High efficiency liquid works well for maintaining textures in clothing, linens and other household materials.

  1. Be careful with your whites

Have you ever noticed that right next to your armpits on white shirts, a yellowish polish starts to show after a few washes? Sometimes it stretches all over the shirt and what was once a Monday morning staple now looks old and stained.

While underarm stains are usually caused by sweat and certain types of deodorant, how you wash these shirts is also important. Breeze HE promises to reduce the risk of that yellow dullness and even better if you wash your whites as soon as possible after wearing them, it’s a pretty sure hit that you won’t have to worry about them losing luminosity at all. .

Immediate washing; even hand washing with detergent, doesn’t give harmful chemicals and perspiration a chance to soak into the material too deeply. Even if you can’t get a full wash, just put some Breeze HE in cold water and let your whites soak.

  1. Bleach isn’t the only stain remover

It’s tough when you finish a good sassy roti and see that familiar yellow stream running down your clothes. That doesn’t mean it’s time to throw it away, though.

Removing stains from colored clothes, although a delicate process, is not impossible.

First, assess the material and composition of the garment, determine the correct temperature that will help remove the stain, then wash thoroughly with Breeze High Efficiency Liquid Laundry Detergent.

Knowing how to wash your clothes and linens plays a huge role in their longevity and while it may seem daunting at first, your pockets and wardrobe will thank you for it.
