I still have my old clothes 10 years ago, and they still look good and I can't let it go yet even it doesn't fit to me anymore. I am trying to loose some pounds so I can wear them back. I always keep my clothes fold and make sure it doesn't get where I store it cause it becomes moldy. I hate winter because of this reason, cold sweats can make your storage molds if you don't check it every now and then.
Proper washing, dry it our completely and it's also depends on what type of clothing you have. There are some types of material that doesn't last long. Since we don't have proper storage at home, I store my old clothes at the traveling case. Some of them I am still using especially the  one is stretchy. Mostly, that doesn't fit me are my pants and some dresses. Some old clothes I have been given to charity so someone who has not enough can wear it.

I like it when people maintain their belongings especially clothes. It allows you to save money .Maintaining and repairing your belongings is a way of living a zero wasteful life.Some tips you can use to maintain your old clothes include:

Constant use of dryers can cause  tiny micro tears on your cloth which can reduce the longetivity of your clothes.In other words,dryers are rough on your clothes.Drying fabrics at 150 degree Fahrenheit only twenty 20 times makes it twice as easy to tear.Although clothes are not safe when dried without heat either but it only leads to 24% loss,only half as bad as hot cycles.In other words,the mechanical tumbling action is the main cause of fabric tear.

Handwashing your clothes is another way to extend their lifespan. Don't use hard soaps or detergents to wash them.

Be careful when you wring your clothes out.Press the water out gently and lay them flat to dry on a drying rack.

A great way to maintain the quality of your cloth is to stretch washes. Don't wash your clothes every time especially your jeans.Wash your clothes  only when they are dirty. To avoid them stinking, you can spread them outside so that they can breath.let them air out.

Their are some other tips you can follow to maintain your old clothes. You can check online for some other tips.
