- Wash clothes inside out.
Another way to keep your CNY clothes safe is to wash it inside out. It would prevent its exterior from fading and the buttons from coming loose. With that, you can wear your outfit looking good as new.
- Use the appropriate detergent and fabric softener.
Of course, before washing any clothes, be sure to use the right detergent and fabric softener. So, it would not be too harsh on its fabric, and it would retain its top shape. As dry cleaners near you, we suggest you use biodegradable laundry products. Their ingredients are much milder and eco-friendly, too.
- Wash in cold water.
Yes, but only if your clothes came from natural fabric like cotton, wool, and linen. Washing it in cold temperature would prevent it from shrinking. Remember that is what hot and warm water do to clothes.
- Mend the rip in clothes.
Since you cannot shop spree like you always do, you can wear your old CNY OOTDs. Just make sure to repair any rip areas it has. So, it would look great and new again.
- Dry the clothes outside.
After washing your CNY OOTD, make sure to hang it outside on your foldable drying laundry rack. Air-drying it under the sun would give the clothes a fresh and clean smell. With that, you are ready to exchange mandarin oranges for ang bao!
