Don’t you hate it when you have an outfit all planned out in your head, fifteen minutes to throw it on, and you realize your top or jeans is at the bottom of your dirty laundry hamper? Of course you should always opt to wash your clothes properly when you can, but sometimes you just haven’t had a chance to get your G-T-L on, and you really want to squeeze out one last wear out of that garment.
I know I’ve been there, and if you have too, read on for my secret way to refresh your clothes for one-time wear in minutes:
Step 1: Treat
To start, treat any stains on the garment individually. Try not to get the whole thing wet, just the area that needs attention. A “Tide To Go”, or similar stain-removing stick works great. Apply the stain remover, then use a wet cloth to dab at the area until it’s clean.
Step 2: Refresh
Next, spritz the garment with a fabric refresher, like Febreeze, all over. Don’t you perfume or not designed for fabric, as the scent will actually make the garment less fresh.
Step 3: Dry
Throw the piece of clothing in a dryer on high, with a fabric softener sheet, and a clean towel for 10 minutes. The towel helps absorb any moisture and sweat, while the softener sheet refreshed and adds a light scent.
Step 4: Enjoy
Let the item cool down and you’re ready to rock your refreshed gear! Just make sure to wash it next time.
