We all know that high-quality, well-made clothing will last longer, fit and feel better. So why don't we consider and care for clothing as an investment that can influence and communicate our unique image, self-confidence and success to others? After all, feeling good in your clothes means you do better work, have more fun with your kids, and generally enjoy life a little more. Like any good investment, clothes need to be cared for. Getting clothes repaired, even minor repairs, along with regular cleaning, can ensure you get years of enjoyment from most garments.

Unfortunately, many Americans don't protect their clothing investments. According to a study conducted by the University of Missouri-Columbia, Americans throw out an average of 14.3 million tons of textile waste annually. Most of this waste is clothing that was discarded because of minor tears and stains and that could have been easily repaired by professionals like those who work at DELIA'S Cleaners.
