How to Clean Thrift Store Items Before Selling on eBay

Thrift store finds will not always be in stellar condition, so you will have to do some work to bring them back to life. Here are a few of my favorite tools for cleaning up thrift store items to make them more sellable on eBay.

Woolite. Wash fine garments and delicates by hand and lay flat to dry.

Shout Color Catcher Sheets. Use with multicolored garments to keep colors from bleeding.

Dryel in Home Dry Cleaning Kit - use to freshen clothing. Works well on sweaters, jackets, blazers, coats, and all types of clothing.

Clorox Bleach Pen. Great for touching up spots on white garments.

Shoe Polish. Use to hide scuff marks and make shoes look newer.

Black magic marker. Use to "color" scratched zipper pulls.
