I was washing a wool sweater in some Woollite and was scouring the Internet for miscellaneous clothing care tips becuase I an idiot and have only recently graduated from throwing everything in the washer and then throwing everything in the dryer and blasting it til dry. At least I seperate by color.
Anyway, I was reading about handwashing sweaters (pain in the butt if you ask me) and it mentioned that you should only have to wash it once a year.
Once a year? I generally wash my clothes after every wear. Well my shirts and underwear. Well, my pants take repeated wears before they get the machine. And I suppose I let stuff like sportcoats go a little while in between washing.
The question is: what stuff do you wash after each wear? Is there anything that doesn’t need such regular cleaning? Is it possible I am overwashing a lot of my clothes?
Please feel free to regard me as an idiot in the realm of clothing care. In fact, if anybody wants to throw out any general tips, go right ahead.
