Tips On Buying Preloved Clothing - has this been washed

Like if this Guide is helpful
When buying a bargain pre - loved piece of clothing there is one huge very important thing to keep and mind before hitting that bid button.
Ask the seller has this garment been cleaned. I cant tell you how many gorgeous vintage dresses or tops I have bought and the item has
not been cleaned. While that perfect little dress may look clean, storing a worn garment that has not been cleaned may be attacked by bugs
that like to have a munch on the fabric and you wont know this until you wash it and holes appear. The other problem is the underarms can
be stained by deodorant that clog the fabric and bleach out the dye or yellow lighter fabrics.  Marks from perpetration very rarely come
out and if your item is silk or a delicate fabric there is no chance of removing this mark.
