Want to keep your hoodies soft for a longer period of time? Follow these simple tips and tricks for that extra softness

Hoodies are the most low-maintenance apparel anyone can own. You can practically wear one anytime, anywhere and for anything, well maybe that is debatable. But you do get the drift, right?

Follow these steps to make sure your hoodies last long.

1) Wear your hoodie as many times as possible before washing it. Since you wear a shirt or some other garment underneath your hoodie, it won't require regular washing like other garments that come in contact with your skin.

2) Wash your hoodie in cold water on a gentle cycle with a colour-preserving laundry detergent.

3) Avoid washing your hoodie with other clothes. The friction of a hoodie can ruin the softness of other clothes.

4) Turn your hoodie inside-out before washing, especially if it has a screen print or applique on the front. If the hoodie zips, zip it before washing.

5) Hang your hoodie to air dry instead of putting it in the dryer to avoid shrinking.

Top Tip

Don't add bleach or a detergent that has bleach to the load when washing your hoodie.
