Children are tough on clothes. After all, they’re closer to the dirt than we are! We’re happy to pass these care tips from resale moms on:
To keep their favorites as bright as the first time they wore them, add a cup of white vinegar to your rinse cycle once in a while. Vinegar cuts soap residue which dulls and grays colors.
Provide your children’s dirty-clothes hamper with spring-type clothes pins. Ask the kids to tag stains to be pre-treated before washing.
Collar stains are easily removed with shampoo. Use that brand no one liked!
Cut your mending-pile work by dabbing clear nail polish over the threads that hold buttons on. Prevents wear that leads to lost buttons.
Remove drawstrings on hoods that can present a tangling mishap.
And best tip of all: shop consignment and resale for your children’s wardrobe! If they’re growing fast, your budget will be able to keep up. Shopping at a Professional Resale Shop means more money for that college fund!
