HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR CLOTHES?

It’s simple to make your lovely clothes last in a good condition for a long time if you take just a bit of care! Here are some small and easy ways to guide you…

After undressing, if you want to wear the same outfit again soon, then definitely put them on hangers! They won’t crumple and the fabric will be protected and look good. Put the rest in a hamper to be washed.

Avoid getting food stains on your clothes. You will just need to eat a bit carefully and still if you get some, dab ice water or seltzer on them so the stain does not set. Never rub!!

Wash clothes often using a gentle cycle for delicates. Never use liquid bleach in the wash and always separate colored items from whites. It’s best to avoid chemical bleaches, instead use pure soap with bicarbonate (baking soda).

Drying clothes in sunlight or open air is much healthier than using a dryer. The latter besides using up a huge amount of electricity, will also wear out your outfits or fade colors quickly. You can use a clothes rack indoors if it’s not sunny. Always iron clothes when they are slightly damp and if you have to use a dryer, the temperature should never be too high. It will tend to wrinkle your clothes!

After drying clothes, hang them up neatly so that there are minimum wrinkles. Smooth out the fabric with your hands. You can use our light but robust clothes storage boxes to arrange all items neatly and keep the dust and insects away. It will reduce closet clutter and you can tuck them away even under the bed or in the attic when space is lacking!! http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-brownclothstorage; http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-greenclothstorage

If you keep clothes, inner-wear in drawers or dressers, fold them neatly. Use our savvy drawer organizers to neatly arrange your delicates, ties, socks, scarves, handkerchiefs or other small accessories. You will marvel at how easy your life will become! http://tinyurl.com/amazon-uberlyfe-organizers

Though washing clothes is good for enhancing their long life, don’t overdo it! Often, simple airing can work wonders for the oil, dust or perspiration that accumulates over time.

Sometimes, denim can develop creases during a wash which are hard to get rid of! In that case before ironing, just grab it by the waistband, raise your arms and give it a good flick. Repeat if required. Also folding clothes along their seams keeps them in good shape and utilizes space efficiently.

Finally instead of buying expensive padded hangers for heavy or fragile items, use layers of tissue paper, old socks or hand towels to get the same result!

GLOW IN THE DARK TEDDY BEAR!

208432_1_600

This large glow in the dark teddy is more than just a cuddly soft toy…if your kids are afraid of the dark, it can help them overcome that fear! The toy uses colorful LED lights powered by low voltage batteries. The light is composed of quality cotton and lint. It is perfectly safe to use and acts both as a night light and plush pillow or cushion.

The multi-colored lights emitted, stimulate babies visually and for slightly older tots, it is a great way to teach the names of different colors. So besides being uniquely decorative, this friendly bear is utilitarian too 🙂

The color of your walls can contribute in a major way, when it comes to creating the snowy, chilly ambiance…artificial, shimmering, silvery snowflakes hanging from the ceiling looks simply awesome!

You can go for a combination of different shades of blue and white while choosing the bedding, blankets or cushions…it will enhance the general feel of the room. Kids will specially love the ones with “cool” motifs on them like igloos, penguins, polar bears or snow. Digital prints on plain sheets or covers are also another option. If the color of the curtains and furniture follow the same rule, like maybe white bed or dresser and pale blue curtains…it will be amazing.
