This is on topic because I want to keep my clothing looking as nice as possible for as long as possible since I can't afford to get new clothing as often as I'd like. I'd like to keep my favourite shirts from getting faded, fuzzy, threadbare or pilly. Does anyone know what I should or should not do in order to keep my clothes looking nice? My current laundry routine is basically to toss a bunch of clothing in the washer (either colours or whites or reds...oddly enough i own enough red clothing that i can do red-only loads, haha), with some laundry soap, wash it on the regular cycle, then hang my shirts up to dry over the bath tub. If there's anything I could or should be doing differently to prolong the lives of my shirts, i'd like to know please.
