Save Your Sweaters #fallfashion #ChurchAndDwight #ad

Sweater season has finally arrived!  Once you complete your wardrobe switch (from summer to winter) and organize your closet you might want to review your fall and winter fashion.  Why?  Quite simply put, you can revamp your clothing and save money doing it.  By caring for your clothing you can stretch out its use.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Now is the time to check for loose or missing buttons, any loose hems, and even any missed stains.  You can easily reinforce loose buttons, and you can replace a missing button (or two)!  Actually, you can change all the buttons on any clothing item and even change the look altogether!

If you come across any loose hems you can quickly stitch it yourself.  It’s pretty simple to sew a few stitches and it really doesn’t have to be perfect either … unless you’re a perfectionist.  If you don’t know how to sew you can look up online how to do so.   By mending something yourself you avoid spending money at a seamstress.

Last, but not least, it might be helpful to do a “once over” to look for any dirt or stains.  It’s better to do the “once over” before packing away any clothing after each season; however, I like to be cautious and double-check just in case.  As the saying goes:  no harm no foul.

To keep your bright colours bright try using OxiClean Colour Shield Laundry Stain Remover and see how radiant your precious fall pieces stay.  I’m very happy with the results I get each and every time.

Stains aren’t always easy to get out.  Whites are especially difficult but that’s when I bring out the big guns!  OxiClean White Revive Laundry Stain Remover brightens my whites better than bleach!

I love white whites so being able to wear my whites longer makes sense to me.  This is exactly why the OxiClean family lines my laundry shelf; everything is at my fingertips so that I can take care of any (and all) stains.

So whether you restock, reuse, revamp, or recycle you can do so knowing that you have a selection of stain-fighters on your side.  Your clothes will be happy … and so will you.
