Fashion Hacks: How to Wash Clothes

Posted by Hannah Bezdek on

What kind of bra do you wear with an open-back shirt? How do you hem jeans in a hurry? How do you remove makeup from clothes?

We all find ourselves in a stitch sometimes (see what I did there?). We’re in a hurry—and OF COURSE something goes wrong with our outfit. You’ve already tried on numerous looks and finally found the right one. Don’t worry. Here’s a list of fashion hacks to help you look like the flawless fashionista you are.

If you’re like me, besides cotton and workout gear, laundry is a little out of your league. There are a multitude of fabrics out there, each with their own nuanced washing requirements. Most people recommend hand washing items if you’re unsure which, for me, is most of the time. Hand washing clothes seems so Little House on the Prairie, right? Take off your bonnet and relax because here’s your easy laundry guide since you’re #adulting.

First thing's first, check your garment’s tag. The clothing manufacturer threw you a softball because washing instructions are normally listed. I know what you’re thinking. It’s okay to admit it: what do those pictures on the tag even mean? Check out this article by Tide, because they are here to save the day

But what if your garment leaves you hanging and doesn’t have a care tag? Your mom probably told you the basics: white colors are washed with warm water, whereas dark colors are washed with cold water. But the world is more complex! How you wash your clothes depends on fabric type and color. I always refer to this photo because it is the ultimate cheatsheet for laundry!

Hope these tips help you keep your clothes as clean as the day you bought them!
