CLOTHING, SHOES & LAUNDRY TIPS

CLOTHING, SHOES & LAUNDRY TIPS

Shine black shoes by rubbing them with a banana skin.
 
Shine brown shoes by rubbing them with the pithy side of a lemon.
 
Keep necklaces and bracelets from tangling by hanging off a mug tree or putting hooks inside your wardrobe.

To get rid of an ink stain on clothes, spray with a strong hairspray, and then wash as normal.

Dry wet shoes more quickly by putting crumpled balls of newspaper inside them.

To remove chewing gum from clothing, upholstery or carpets, heat some white vinegar in a pan and apply it to the gum.

To make ironing easier place a sheet of kitchen foil on the board under the cover, which helps reflect the heat.

When you are doing your laundry put any underwear inside a pillowcase. It will keep all those items together and make it easier for sorting everything once it comes out the wash. You can buy mesh bags designed especially for this.

To stop coloured cottons from fading and the colours bleeding, soak in strong salt water overnight.

To revive greying white cotton bedding, let the frost get to them on the clothes line.

Remove rust stains on white cotton by rubbing with lemon juice and salt before washing.

To remove candle wax from fabrics use a knife to scrape off as much wax as possible. Place fabric between 2 pieces of parchment paper or waxed paper and press with a warm iron. Wash with detergent in the hottest water safe for the fabric.

Tumble dry pillows in a hot tumble dryer once a week for 15 minutes to freshen them and get rid of dust mites.

Separate your clothes by season. If you have a wardrobe with a shelf over the rails, place current seasons clothes on the rails and move out of season clothes on to the shelf.

Categorize your clothes by purpose, such as work, casual, and formal.

If you have deodorant stains on your clothes, gently sponge the area with white vinegar. Leave for a few minutes and then wash in hot water.

To remove blood stains, soak the item in cold water for at least 30 minutes. If the stain remains, soak again in lukewarm water with added ammonia. Use 3 tbsp. ammonia per gallon of water. Rinse well. If the stain is really stubborn and still remains, work in a laundry detergent, and wash, using colour safe bleach.

To remove a fresh coffee stain, sponge or soak with cold water as soon as possible. Wash, using detergent and colour safe bleach. For a set in stain beat an egg yolk and then with a terry cloth, apply it to the stain. You’ll need to work the yolk into the stain for a minute or so. Now rinse it thoroughly with water. The stain will disappear.

To remove mouldy smells from towels, wash with a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda. The smell will disappear they will be lovely and fresh again.

Plant some lavender under your washing line, or if it on a patio or other hard standing, put some pots of lavender underneath. As sheets swing around on the line they brush against the lavender and pick up a subtle scent.
