Your clothes often define you, which is why they need extra care. But a hectic lifestyle does not give you the time and effort to take care of your clothing.
We have a quick list of laundry hacks and tips:
1. Make those wrinkles vanish
If you don’t have an iron on hand, worry no more. There is an easy and simple way for you to smoothen out your clothes. Hang your clothing in your bathroom, far enough from the shower so it won’t get wet.
The steam from the shower will act a smoothening agent for your clothes.
But if you don’t have the time, you can also use the anti-crease function, present in your IFB dryer. The dryer’s gentle clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation action along with a stream of gentle hot and cool air ensures crease free drying.
2. DIY your fabric softener
Don’t have one on hand? DIY a simple fabric softener using vinegar and you favorite essential oils. Mix 48 drops to dilute a cup of vinegar and leave your clothes smelling fresh and feeling soft.
Just in case you want something a bit more, IFB has you covered with its own range of fabric conditioners. Buy it here.
3. Baby powder for oil stains
Sprinkle a little baby powder over the oil stain and leave it on for minimum 30 minutes. The baby powder will help soak up all the oil from the fabric. Brush off the excess once done.
4. Squeeze out those sweat stains
By squeezing some lemon juice into a spray bottle, you can spray them onto sweat stains before you wash them. The citric acid in the lemon juice will help lighten the stains.
5. Remove makeup stains
Ladies, do you hate getting foundation on the collars of your delicate dresses? Remove those stains with the use of a light shaving cream before you give them in for a wash.
6. Afraid of fading colours?
We all love a vibrant piece of clothing. But sometimes, with excessive washing, the colours of these favorite articles tend to fade. Protect them and their colour by adding a teaspoon of salt into the wash. Or you can also use LIMO, IFB’s premium fabric brightener which does not contain any bleaching agents, making it equally suitable for coloured as well as whites. Buy here.
7. Even your washer needs a wash!
Add in a few cups of vinegar and wash your washing machine with the setting on hot and on the longest wash cycle. Pause the cycle on between and let it sit for an hour or two before resuming. The vinegar helps remove mold and bacteria from your machine.
8. Too cold or too hot?
Every wondered when to wash using hot water or when to cold?
Cold water is best suited for delicate items of clothing, including blouses and sweaters and also protects clothes from running colours.
Hot water is good for clothes that are infected, and heavy clothes like bath towels.
While these tips can help in keeping the most delicate clothes looking new, repeatedly following many of these steps can be time-consuming and a hassle. Labels on clothes can be confusing too. Also, not all clothes can be treated with these tips for successful results.
