- Designate School Clothes Only: I know there are a few out there who are saying, are you crazy? That creates twice as much laundry! This may be occasionally true, but in the long run there nice school clothes will last longer and they can go and trash they play clothes, because they’re play clothes.
- Wash Them Properly: There are some people out there, myself included, who have issues following instructions. Especially when it comes to laundry. but the manufacturer knows how their clothes will last the longest. Hence the instructions. If you follow them along with the unspoken laundry guidelines they will last a whole lot longer.
- Don’t Buy Cheap Clothes: I’m sure most of you are familiar with the adage “You get what you pay for.” Of course you know that goes with clothes as well. So don’t buy cheap clothes if you want them to last. Gymboree has introduced a new line of kids clothing to withstand the daily rigors of school life with hurting the pocket book.
