How to Get Rid of the Clothes You Don’t Need – Part I

It’s about that time of the year where you can finally bring out all your summer clothes and pack away the warmer ones, but rather than simply switching them round, how about getting rid of the clothes you don’t need?

You might be thinking to yourself: “I don’t need to throw away any clothes, I wear them all” – but if you’ve ever found yourself staring at a wardrobe full of clothes but still feeling like you’ve got nothing to wear, then we’ve got news for you.

Before going shopping and adding more clothes to the load, go through what you have and chuck out anything that you don’t need. Not sure how to decide? That’s what we’re here for! Here ‘s how to choose which clothes to get rid of:

Badly stained clothes
If you’ve tried everything in your power to remove a stain but it just won’t leave, then it’s time to say goodbye. You may want to save some stained clothes for when you’re painting, doing house work, dying your hair, or any other messy work, or perhaps use them as cleaning cloths – in this case, find a separate storage space for them.

Persistent smells
Certain materials hold on to smells longer than others, despite washing them over and over. If you have an item of clothing that smells of body odour, mould, or some other nasty smell even after having washed it and sent it for dry cleaning, then you have no use for it.

Damaged clothes
Certain damages might be fixable, but if you’ve got a tear that can’t be repaired – or if you’ve had something for fixing that’s been sat there for months or even years – then it’s time to get it fixed or move on.

If you’re really struggling to say goodbye to such clothes and want to give them a second chance, Portughes Dry Cleaning might be able to help. Dry cleaning is great for removing stains and bad smells, and we also offer tailoring services and might be able to repair certain damages. Call us on 2144 4444 or 9999 4444 for more information.
