TIP NO. 26 – TLC GOES A LONG WAY
Everything in our life is better with a little TLC – even your clothes. Treat them kindly and well, they will repay you by always making you look good.
When getting undressed don’t put clothes over the back of a chair, or worth yet, drop them on the floor because they need to be washed or dry cleaned. Instead hang them up, or at least fold them neatly while they are waiting to go to the cleaners or being washed, avoid wrinkling them unnecessary because even pressing them later does not always make wrinkles disappear totally and does not improve their shape.
Doing a wardrobe consultation recently my client, who had lots and lots of t-shirts, I think like most of us, had rolled them up and stuffed them in a drawer. When we pulled them out they looked more like rags than t-shirts – believe me they didn’t make her look good when she put them on — please fold them before placing them on a shelf or in a drawer, you don’t want to look like you are coming out of the washing machine.
Another way to help your clothes to keep their shape is not to use wire hangers; use good plastic hangers, or wooden ones for coats and jackets.
The money you have spent on your wardrobe can only pay real dividend when you take care of your investment by giving it a little Tender Loving Care.
See you tomorrow
