Is it better to turn your clothes inside out when washing them?

Answer

Washing clothes inside out protects the garment from fading. It is recommended to wash clothes in this manner that have embellishments like beading and prints to protect these details from damage.

When washing your clothes, Lauren Conrad, a fashion designer, says clothes should be zipped up and buttoned. This should help prevent snagging. Garments with drawstrings should also be loosely tied to prevent them from tangling.

When washing delicate clothing like lingerie and hosiery, it is recommended to put them inside a pillowcase when washing to prevent wearing out more quickly. Using fabric softeners can also help protect the garment while washing. The softeners also make the clothes feel soft and smell fresh.
