Now more than ever it is important to extend the life of our clothes.
Sometimes it’s better to spend a little more on a higher quality item of clothing or take something old and make something new out of it.
But how far are you willing to go to make sure something lasts.
Chris Maddox is a fashion and lifestyle influencer, he shares fashion and lifestyle tips for men.
But Chris recently shared a controversial video that got everyone talking.
Chris shared a video with three things he advises you to stop doing to extend the life of your clothes.
Chris said, “Stop doing these three things that ruin your clothes.”
Tip number one: washing clothes too often.
Chris said, “First, you wash your clothes too often. Once you wear a shirt, you don’t need to wash it. It breaks down the fibers and causes the color to fade.”
He said: “If you have a bad smell you’re trying to get rid of and you don’t want to wash your clothes, fold them and throw them in the freezer overnight. The cold air will kill the bacteria and you’ll be fine.”
Tip number two: hang up sweaters.
Chris said: “Under two, you need to stop hanging up your sweaters. The sweaters are too heavy, so when they are on the hanger, they stretch the collar, which is not good.”

Tip number three: forget to fasten the top button on your shirts.
Chris said: “Under three, forget to fasten the top button on your shirts when you hang them up. Go to your closet and fasten that top button. This will keep the structure of the shirt.”
Chris’s video has had over 332,000 views.
And while most viewers agreed that the second and third tips sounded pretty reasonable, they were completely horrified and confused by the first tip.
Many commenters testified that they refused to put their clothes in the freezer or stop washing them after one use.
One commenter said: “There’s no way I’m going to stop washing my clothes. When my clothes get faded or stretchy, I’ll buy a new one.”
Another commenter said: “So you’re telling me to put dirty bacterial clothes in the freezer with the food?”
A third commenter said: “I really sweat too much to wear shirts more than once.”
