HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR CLOTHES & ACCESSORIES 101: Whether expensive or not, making your wardrobe last longer saves a long penny shopping-wise. And who would like to see their favorite pieces become worn out and trashy?
Wash as rarely as possible, rather put them in fresh air overnight. Hand wash or dry clean pieces with more delicate fibers, such as mohair, cashmere, or angora.
If the surface of the knit gets bumpy, a cashmere comb will help to smooth it out; and if you lack such a luxury, a shaver is a good replacement. Remember to pull the fabric tight before beginning the shaving in order to avoid unwanted holes.
Whenever not in use, fill the bags with for example plastic wrap (or get creative!) to avoid losing the form.
If made out of leather, use grease regularly. Just a thin, transparent layer spread overall the surface every now and then will keep the bag and the owner happy.
Keep an eye on the forecast; delicate leathers lose easily shape when in touch with water.
Keep your make-up in a bag. A simple but a golden rule. One accidentally open red lipstick, and you can kiss goodbye that beautiful suede lining.
When buying new shoes, directly treat them with a protection spray. Also use wax, colored or transparent, every now and then.
The shoemaker is your best friend. If your heels / heel pieces get worn out, replacing them will at best add years to the life of the shoe.
Rain = dry them the second you get indoors.
Boots? Support the shoe by placing rolled newspaper inside. No one wants slouchy shoes which need pulling up!
In case of leather shoes, use a wooden or plastic model inside the shoe when not in use. This will maintain the last and uphold the fit.
