Kids & Clothes: A Match NOT Made in Heaven

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:

Kids are hard on clothes. Here's some tips from HowToConsign.org

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!
