Fresh smelling clothing gets your day off to a beautiful start, doesn’t it? But sometimes your clothing may not smell as fresh as you’d like. Closets get musty along with your clothes occasionally picking up normal body odors. Here are 6 tips you need to keep your clothes always smelling fresh.
1. LAUNDER AFTER ONE WEAR WITH ONE EXCEPTION
It’s a simple tip but an important one. Launder your clothing often, generally after one wear. The only exception to this would be your jeans. Experts recommend that you don’t wash jeans after each wear because it breaks down the denim.
2. LAUNDER SOON AFTER WEARING
It’s best if you can launder your clothing soon after wearing it. This keeps stains and odors from setting in. Sometimes this is difficult to do, though. If you can’t make it to the laundry for a bit, you may want to spray your empty basket with a small amount of household odor eliminator. This can help keep odors neutralized until laundry day.
3. CHOOSE FRAGRANT LAUNDRY DETERGENT
A fragrant laundry detergent can make all the difference in the world when it comes to making your clothes smell fresh. Everyone has their favorites. There are other things you can do to make your clothing smell fresh while doing laundry too, such as using scented fabric softener sheets or scent boosters.
4. HAVE A SIGNATURE FRAGRANCE
If you’re one of those lucky ladies who’s found a fragrance that’s so completely you that it’s became your signature fragrance then hints of it will get into your clothing from consistent wear. Signature fragrance effects clothes with a soft scent of it, even after being laundered. This is motivation to commit to a fragrance as your signature.
5. WALK THROUGH YOUR PERFUME
This is a trick. After applying your fragrance to your pulse points, spritz into the air and walk through it. Spraying it directly onto your clothing can cause a stain. But a tiny spritz to walk through is much safer. Even after your fragrance fades from your #skin, your clothing will still have it.
6. OPEN UP YOUR CLOSET
It’s easy for closets to smell not so fresh, especially in the summer. Most of us don’t have closets that have a vent for AC to come through. That can equal some unpleasant closet odors. This has an easy fix, though. Just leave your closet door open so it can air out whenever it’s convenient for you.
