Hot Costume Care Tip: Plan to reuse, recycle team costumes

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Tue, Apr 09, 2019 @ 06:04 AM

Are you tired of this season's costumes?

If so, follow these easy steps to ensure you get the most out of your old costumes:

  • If you plan to order new team costumes this year, formulate a plan for what to do with your old costumes. Don’t just toss them aside at the back of your team’s closet or send them out with the trash. 
  • If you took great care of your costumes throughout the season, DON’T STOP when your season is over! Check over your costumes for any and all needed repairs.
  • If your costumes are dirty, but launderable. take care of it right away! Don’t wait until ‘later’.
  • If your costumes are stinky, air them out at the VERY least. If possible, treat them with FRESH AGAIN®!
  • Tally the numbers of your costumes and accessories, so you always have a record at your fingertips.

Now you are ready to:

  • SAVE your costumes ‘as is’ for a future routine
  • DONATE your costumes to a deserving, less financially sound team
  • SELL your costumes to a budget-conscious team
  • TRADE your costumes with a like-minded team
  • TRANSFORM your costumes into something NEW!
