World Wellbeing Week typically falls at the end of June each year. To mark the occasion, we’ll list the best ways you can look after your wellbeing.

Stay Active

Never underestimate the importance of staying active as it not only boosts productivity but also boosts your morale. Take advantage of the summer and go for regular walks or start jogging. Set yourself new fitness goals by going to the gym.

Benefits of Folding Your Clothes

Laundry is a repetitive chore; the job starts with putting dirty clothes in the basket and ends with hanging clothes outside to dry after they’ve been put in the washing machine. However, the chore doesn’t end there. Folding your clothes is the last task.

Folding your clothes

Essentially, there are benefits to folding your clothes!

More Storage Space

Getting into a habit of folding your clothes means you’ll have more storage space in your wardrobe or drawer. Nobody wants to go home to find unfolded clothes on their chair or bed. Instead, if you fold them and put them away neatly in a contained place, you’ll save so much room and reduces the pile of laundry.

Additionally, folding your clothes will also help save space in your luggage for your next holiday!

Reduces Wrinkles

If you have an important meeting to attend and noticed a wrinkled shirt, it could mean it wasn’t folded properly. To stop your big days from being ruined by a wrinkled shirt, make sure your clothes are folded to reduce wrinkles and creases in your laundry.

However, if you want to urgently get rid of the wrinkles and creases, book with Laundryheap and we’ll iron your shirts so you look smart in your meetings!

Helps You Stay Organised

It may seem like a very small task but keeping clothes folded helps you stay productive, relaxed and organised. Leaving everything cluttered is not good for your mood. In addition, organising means you’ll find your favourite shirt easier the next time you look for it.

Increases Lifespan of Clothes

Significantly, folded clothes results in a better lifespan for your clothes. By folding them neatly and putting them away, you are eliminating the risk of buttons on clothes coming off or clothes being damaged. You’ve spent time laundering your clothes so make sure you increase their durability by folding them properly!

Folding your clothes itself is a skill and we hope next time when your clothes are cleaned and dry, you consider the benefits of folding them.

4 Common Ironing Mistakes

Much like laundry, ironing is a chore you either love or hate; there is no in-between. Regardless, it’s a chore that needs to be done with care and patience because if done correctly, ironing adds a smooth and cool look to your clothes. However, there are also ironing mistakes that need to be avoided.

Here are 4 common ironing mistakes!

1. Not Using Correct Temperature Settings

Not checking the temperature is one of the most common ironing mistakes. With the right setting and temperature, you’ll get the clean results you want.

If you have made this ironing mistake, you’ll know that choosing the incorrect temperature setting can ruin the smoothness of the fabric. Also, it can cause marks and burns on your clothes!

Always read the labels and iron for a good, smoother, and fresher result to save you time and stress!

2. Ironing Dried Clothes

Drying clothes is part and parcel of cleaning clothes, but ironing dried clothes tends to be on the list of ironing mistakes. Dried clothes lack moisture and consequently, the wrinkles are far more stubborn when they are left on dry clothes, which could damage your fabrics in the long run.

That’s not to say you should be ironing wet clothes but ideally, you should aim for damp clothes because they’ll have enough moisture. Ironing damp clothes makes it easy to reshape and remove creases. Always spray water on dried clothes to dampen them for better results!

3. Not Cleaning Your Iron Board

When you think about ironing chores, it’s easy to overlook your iron board’s condition. Iron boards are no different to clothesline in your garden; if they’re in good shape, your clothes will be in good shape. If you neglect cleaning duties for your iron board, chances are your clothes may catch some dust and dirt.

We advise you to first store your iron board in a room with a lot of space and every month, clean and wipe it with a cloth!

4. Not Managing Clothes Pile

When it comes to ironing, the organisation is the key to a fresher result. Managing a big laundry pile is the difference between good and bad ironing. Always make a habit of ironing the clothes with the lowest heat setting first.

Generally, heating the iron up is easier than cooling it down. The most common materials that need the lowest temperature are polyester and silk. Once you are done with this, change the settings on your iron to medium and high for the relevant materials.

Ironing mistakes are common and don’t feel too disappointed if you have made these mistakes in the past. Ironing clothes does require time and patience.
