Clothes that last

I found this article which has some decent tips so I link the whole thing but one part I especially enjoyed is this:

"Wash Everything in Cold Water

People who wash their clothing in cold water will notice a drop in their energy bills very quickly. ...

[Some parents might note that it is very difficult to remove grass stains from a kid's pants using cold water washes. To this I respond: this is why children should be dressed from head to toe in black. Not only can you imagine that they are little ninjas (or French poets, if they are pouting), but it'll save you the pain of trying to remove all kinds of goobery stains from their clothing.
