The laundry hacks everyone needs to know

 
From how to iron shirts like a pro to the ingenious trick to remove red wine stains, here are the laundry hacks everyone needs to know.

There are a host of tricks you can use to get everything looking like new again…according to the Dailymail

1. GOODBYE RED WINE STAIN

Don’t panic when this happens, instead get a damp cotton cloth and dab it on the stain to remove any excess. Then stretch the item taut over a bowl with the stain in the middle and secure with an elastic band. Pour salt over the offending area and leave for five minutes before carefully pouring boiling water on it from a height of about 20cm (this will flush it out). Then wash on as hot a cycle as the fabric can take and it’ll be gone.

2. UNSHRINK YOUR CLOTHES

Fix your shrinking disasters by adding the item to a bowl full of warm water containing a capful of baby shampoo or adult conditioner to relax the fibres. After about five minutes, take it out, roll it up in a towel and squeeze to remove as much water as possible. Lay on another dry towel and gently stretch back to the original shape. Leave to dry and it’ll be ready to wear again.

3. HOW TO IRON … WITHOUT AN IRON

Getting out the ironing board is a faff, especially for just one item. So switch on your hair straighteners and use them instead.

4. SAY HELLO TO SOFT TOWELS

After a few uses, towels often start feeling rough. It’s caused by a build-up of detergent, so cut down on the amount of washing powder you use and don’t add fabric softener. Instead, half a cup of white vinegar in the final rinse will strip away any detergent, leaving them beautifully soft. Fluff them up further by sticking a clean tennis ball in the tumble drier.

5. GET YOUR WHITES WHITE AGAIN

Get your whites back to their best by bringing a pan full of water containing sliced lemons to the boil, taking it off the heat then popping in the clothes you want brightened. Leave soaking for an hour while the citric acid in the fruit lightens the material then wash like normal for brilliant whites. Drying in direct sunlight will also help as it naturally bleaches fabric.

Most ladies would go for tight jeans as compared to baggy ones. This trend however is being overtaken by baggy jeans which were a trend in the 80’s.
