Turning your clothes inside out is one of the easiest ways to preserve the life of your clothes.
If you’ve ever had a soft cotton garment turn into sandpaper covered in bumps after a few washes, it is because the friction during the agitation cycle can damage and break delicate fibers. Those fibers tangle up, creating little fabric “pills” all over your garment.
Turning can also help prevent buttons, clasps, and zippers from getting snagged on other clothing. Lastly, sweat stains and odors are more effectively cleaned if the garment is inside out, allowing the detergent to make direct contact with the stain.
