Hi teachers~

I am wondering if 'look after something (not humans, animals or plants)' is as common as 'take care of something.'

I often hear 'take care of things', but not 'look after things.'

So I just thought 'look after' can only be used with living things.

I am looking forward to your explanations~~

Thank you.

No, "look after" can be used with non-living things too.

"Your clothes will last longer if you look after them."

Me, too. I think it is relatively uncommon in US English.

Thank you so much~~
