your mood and that’s why you wish to keep it to the best. Your clothes will last longer with regular

dry clothes with sunlight.

To limit the effects of fading you should wash only when necessary. A spill or stain doesn’t
have to ruin a garment. For minor stains or spills, spot treat them. Try to clean the stain

separately. Wash your new clothes separate. Avoid washing white clothes along with
coloured fabrics.

dye loss. This also freshens your clothes, smooth’s fibre and reduces friction to make fabric
