Cleaning Your Thrifted Finds
You should never assume thrifted clothing items  are clean and ready to wear. You are purchasing  items  that going to come in contact with your skin. Your first measure if to wash then in a  good detergent in hot water and dry with a good warm dryer heat setting.
Specialty Fabrics – may need dry cleaning or you can use Dryel at home dry cleaning sheets to freshen them,
Put leather purses in a pillow case and wash them.
 Shoes-Lysol spray them in and out or 

Wipe the insides of shoes with Clorox wipes.

Wipe the outside and inside of purses, clutches and wallets with Clorox wipes as well.

Clothes- Tide with Oxi, Fabuloso , Oxi-clean or  a new Walmart exclusive product called Persil*, is a super cleaner with a great scent.
 Accessories I use cleaners like Awesome from the Dollar Tree, Mean Green also from Dollar Tree.
Clean all jewelry, including earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings with rubbing alcohol
Earrings- I clean all them over with alcohol or sanitizer, clean the posts with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide then finish the posts with a thin coat of Neosporin.

Home Decor- clean your pieces with Lysol spray or mix the concentrated one with water, PineSol, hand sanitizer, bleach
I even disinfect and clean books! I wipe down the cover with sanitizing wipes.
I spray the front and cover down with Lysol let it set a few minutes, then wipe it down to dry.
Glasses and Cups: I use bleach to soak them and then wash as usual.

These are just some of my favorite cleaning tips.
