Which of the two are better: At-Tasbeeh or Al-Istighfaar?

Ibn Al-Qayyim (rahimahullahu ta’aala) said: I said to Shaikh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullahu ta’aala) one day: some of the people of knowledge asked: which of the two are better for the servant, At-Tasbeeh or Al-Istighfaar?

So he said:

"If the garment is clean then incense and water from the watering place is better for it, and if it is dirty; then soap along with hot water is better for it."

Then he said to me (rahimahullaah):

"so how is it when the clothes do not cease being dirty?"
