Then, the stencil is being placed on the apparel and the ink is then spread on the stencil. Now, the ink passes through the permeable layer in the stencil onto the piece of garment.

Recycle Used Clothing

The first way is pretty basic: donate your clothes to a local charity. Every town has a Goodwill or charity that distributes clothing and other items to those in need. When you drop off your clothes to a local charity you get a tax write-off, which can go to replenishing your wardrobe.

You’ll be exchanging more than clothes as you share memories of things that happened when you wore this skirt or those boots.

Third way is to turn your clothes into something new, or upcycle your clothing. A recent article I read mentioned cutting up a scarf and using it to create a flower-like adornment for … Read the rest
