Fast Fashion Vs. Staple Pieces: How Should They Be Laundered?
Washing clothing is a pretty easy (but annoying) task, right? Putting clothes into the washer and moving them to the dryer. But is it really that simple? Not always.
When it comes to clothing, you want them to last as long as possible.
Items of similar fabrics and colors should be washed together, but what about those timeless, staple pieces that you want to stay in top-shape for wears and wears to come? What about those trendy pieces that are less-expensive but you still want to last for the season?
Staple pieces of clothing are usually of higher quality material, thus costing more when you swipe your card to purchase these items. They often require more thought before purchasing, so why wouldn’t you take care of them properly?
We’ve created a list of common staple pieces and how they should be cared for, including dry cleaning and clean and fold. Clean and Fold is a LNDRY service for washing and drying your clothes in gentle detergents with techniques that will keep their quality!
Blazers: Dry Clean

What exactly is fast fashion? By definition it is, “inexpensive clothing produced rapidly by mass-market retailers in response to the latest trends.” The quality of these items is typically much lower and typically not made to last more than a season or two.
So, how do you care for these items when you want to stay on top of the trends for the season but know they aren’t made to last? A simple clean and fold is perfect for these items! You’ll get the most out of them for the season and will have everyone asking how you keep them in such good shape!
