Ever feel like you spend your entire weekend doing laundry? It could be that you're washing your clothes more often than needed. Of course, you don't want to wash your clothes too infrequently, either, so check out this handy guide to see if your laundry schedule is on the right track.
Denim: After every four or five wears.
To help prevent fading, turn the jeans inside out and wash in cold water. Pants made with less durable fabrics, like dress trousers, should be washed or dry cleaned after every three or four wears.
Bras: After every three or four wears.
Ideally, bras should be washed by hand. If you're pressed for time, you can toss them in the wash on delicate. Be sure to first fasten any hooks or closures and place them in a lingerie bag. You should have a couple bras in your rotation, as this will help prolong their shape and elasticity.
Swimwear: After every wear.
Whether you take a dip in the ocean or a chlorinated pool, your suit needs to be rinsed thoroughly with fresh water after every swim. Hand wash in a detergent created for swimwear, then hang the suit to dry.
