Getting more life out of your products: easy tricks to extend product life

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Frayed seams, holes in the knees and pockets, your jeans take a beating...but if you want them to gentle: you don't have to wash them after every wear. Spot clean when you can. Some die hard denim enthusiasts wear their Levis months before washing.

Who wants to fork over hundreds for a new set of tires? Make the ones you have last longer. It's simple: rotate them every 5000 to 8000 miles, keep them properly inflated and make sure they're the right size for your car.

A box of eight disposable razors will set you back close to $20, that's almost $2.50 cents a cartridge which means if you use one a week, you're spending about $130 a year.

You could make your razor last twice as long by just drying it off. And although razor blades are expensive...look through the Sunday paper. There are always coupons that can literally slice the price in half.
