A Whole Lotta Love: How To Care For Your YBD Finds

At YBD Finds, we believe that every piece of clothing tells a story. From the moment you find that perfect piece to the memories you create while wearing it, each item in your wardrobe deserves to be cherished and cared for with the respect it deserves, so it can live with you and be loved by you for longer. Our designers put their heart and soul into designing pieces that are long-lasting, easy-wearing, and durable so that you can get the most wear out of them, but there are things that you can do in return to help preserve these pieces for even longer. With the right care and attention, you can ensure that your clothes keep their quality for as long as you need (we hope that’s forever).

Here are our five top tips on how to care for your clothing and keep them looking their best:

  1. Read the labels

    Before you begin washing or caring for your clothes, always take a moment to read the care labels. These labels provide valuable information on how to properly care for your garments, including recommended washing temperatures, drying instructions, and any special care requirements. Following the instructions on the care label will help prevent damage and ensure that your clothes stay in tip-top condition.

  2. Wash with care

    When it comes to washing your clothes, gentleness is the key. Opt for a mild detergent and avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals that can damage fabrics. Wash your clothes in cold water whenever possible, as hot water can cause colours to fade and fabrics to shrink. Additionally, turn your clothes inside out before washing to minimise friction and protect delicate fabrics from snagging or pilling.

  3. Handle with love

    When handling your clothes, be gentle to avoid unnecessary wear and tear. Avoid wringing or twisting your clothes when washing or drying them, as this can cause stretching and distortion of the fabric. Instead, gently squeeze out excess water and pat them dry with a clean towel. When hanging clothes to dry, use padded hangers to prevent stretching and maintain their shape.

  4. Store properly

    Proper storage is essential for preserving the quality of your clothes. Avoid overcrowding your wardrobe and use breathable garment bags or storage boxes to protect delicate items from dust and sunlight. Fold knitwear and delicate fabrics to prevent stretching, and hang clothes with enough space between them to allow for air circulation. Additionally, store clothes in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent fading and discolouration.

  5. Treat stains promptly

    Stains are inevitable, but how you handle them can make all the difference. Treat stains using a stain remover or gentle detergent as quickly as possible, following the instructions on the product label. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing the stain, as this can spread it further and damage the fabric. Instead, gently blot the stain with a clean cloth or sponge until it lifts, then wash the garment as usual.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your YBD Finds stay looking their beautiful best for longer, preserving their quality and extending their lifespan. Remember, a little care goes a long way in maintaining your much-loved, carefully crafted wardrobe. Show it the love it deserves.
