Wondering what cleaning essentials you’ll need in your toolkit to sell on eBay, Poshmark, or Mercari? As a reseller, you tend to come across many previously loved items that need a little TLC. Cleaning, washing and preparing clothes for resale online is a very important part of the reselling process.
If you’re in the business of selling clothes online, you’ll want to keep a resellers’ toolkit of all of the necessary items to care for your pre-loved items to get them back in shape to resell and get a great ROI.
Everything that I bring in from thrifting gets washed and put away in my storage in a sealed bag to contain the cleanliness.
I pride myself on this and know my customers love receiving items that were cared for.
It’s also important to pay attention to the care instructions for each item so that you can maintain the best possible condition before it is shipped to your buyers.
It’s also common for items picked up from thrift stores to resell to need a little TLC. For example, a bag might need its leather cleaned and conditioned or you may need to repair a small snag on a t-shirt. Sweaters often have piling that can be removed with a fabric shaver.
Over time, it’s helpful to have everything you need on hand so you can quickly list and sell the items online.
Below are the items I personally keep on hand to care for the items that I resell and how to clean clothes to sell online.
Do you sell on multiple platforms? Vendoo is an excellent option and game changer in the world of cross-listing.
I wash ALL of the clothes that I pick up from thrift stores, unless they are new with tags attached of course. It’s really important to clean thrifted clothes to get the funky smells out and keep things fresh for your buyers.
Oxiclean is a miracle worker on whites. I soak everything that is white or partially stained overnight & then throw it in the wash. Everything comes out bright white!
