Before washing, make it into a habit to pre-treat stains thoroughly - you'll be surprised the difference it makes. Finally, turn the clothes inside out in order to retain longevity of the color and quality.
You should only wash your clothes when necessary - air it out instead after wearing it a few times. Also, you can save a significant amount of energy just by lowering the washing temperature and don’t worry, your clothes will still get clean. When washing more sensitive fabrics, make sure to check the care label.
When drying your clothes, try to hang-dry as much as possible and only tumble dry when necessary. This will both save a lot of energy and your clothes will last longer. Apply a hanger for your shirts in order to avoid creases and reduce the need for ironing. After washing wool or knitwear do not hang dry as the weight of the wet fabric, will make it go out of shape. Instead, find a spot to lay them flat and dry.
