Autumn fashion 2020

We may all still be spending a large amount of time at home, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t look amazing whilst doing so. These are the hottest Autumn 2020 fashion trends. 

  • Brown PU leather coats
  • Neutral tones 
  • Red
  • Slouch boots
  • Tiger print
  • Pop colour bags 
  • Belted blazers
  • Knitted dresses
  • Statement earrings 
  • Capes

Brown PU leather coats 

It is vital that we protect ourselves from the harsh autumn breeze by wearing a coat. This autumn the hottest coat is brown leather PU. This understated coat comes in a range of lengths, depending on your preference, and is perfectly paired with black, grey, and blue colours. It’s the perfect coat to throw on whenever you’re feeling the autumn chill. 

Neutral tones 

Sticking with the theme of brown, neutral tones are the desired colour palette this autumn. Neutrals are a staple in every wardrobe, and this autumn you shouldn’t be afraid to mix and match your neutrals. Try pairing a sand coloured boiler suit with a camel coat, or maybe a mocha leather skirt paired with a nude jumper. The possibilities are endless when it comes to mixing neutral tones so have fun with it.

Red

In contrast to the neutral tones that are popular this autumn, red is also a big colour. Fire engine red will quickly become your go-to shade for injecting colour into your wardrobe, specifically for your more going-out looks. Red sequins, tassels, and frills are all the range for party outfits so don’t be alarmed when you start to see red wherever you go.

Slouch boots

Whether you’re wearing a skirt, jeans, trouser suit, or dress, a pair of slouchy boots are the perfect accompaniment. Sitting just below the knee, with every step you take your boots with scrunch and give your outfit some added texture. Try and find a pair in a warm shade of cream to elevate your looks. Whatever outfit you’re rocking these boots will give you an extra edge this autumn, whilst keeping most of your leg warm. 

Tiger print 

Animal prints are a staple favourite every season, and this autumn is no exception. This season we are going wild over tiger print. The combination of black and warm brown/orange in a funky print adheres to the warm colour palette associated with autumn, whilst adding a pop of colour to any monochrome outfit. Whether you rock a tiger print jacket, dress, or top, adding a pop of print will make any outfit look both fun and fresh.

Pop colour bags 

This autumn neutral tones will make up the majority of your outfits. That being said, it’s always good to add a pop of colour, and this autumn it will come from your bag. A pop colour bag, such as a vibrant yellow or deep blue, will break up the neutral palette of your outfit, and add an eye-catching feature. The best way to wear a pop colour bag is as a soft-leather clutch, held under your arm and close to the other items in your outfit. 

Belted blazers

In recent seasons a loose-fit has been the way to style a suit. This autumn the structured suit is back, with particular emphasis on the blazer. A belted blazer should be worn over your suit to create a more angular outfit. This trend is focused on pulling in the waist to create a more traditionally feminine hour glass look. 

Knitted dresses 

Autumn offers the perfect opportunity to get out your cosiest jumpers, and this season we’re turning that cosy jumper into a full dress. Keep your whole body warm this autumn with a full-length maxi knit dress. You will be able to find these dresses in both a tight and loose fit, with many offering a slit up the leg of one side in order to create more of a shape. Pair yours with a heavy pair of boots and your ready to stomp down any runway… or high street.

Statement earrings 

The bigger the earring the more fashionable you will be this autumn. Big, bright, bold statement earrings will be the centrepiece of your outfit. Look for gold statement earrings as they will complement the nude hues of your outfit. 

Capes

A cape is the perfect choice of outwear this autumn as it is heavy enough to keep you warm, yet light enough to not overheat you during the transition between summer and autumn. You will find a variety of different capes in varying shapes and sizes, so you will have plenty of options to choose from. This autumn checks are big, so look for a cape with a plaid pattern to stay on trend. 

Once you have selected your perfect autumn wardrobe make sure it is properly taken care of by letting us dry clean your items. Book your Laundryheap service by heading to the Laundryheap website or by downloading the free Laundryheap app.

How to sort your laundry

Half of the battle of doing laundry is sorting through your dirty washing and deciding what to put in each load. These tips on how to sort your laundry will make that process easier.

  • Partitioned laundry basket
  • A basket per room
  • Separate pre-treated clothing 
  • Clothing colour
  • Fabric type
  • Level of dirtiness 
  • Use Laundryheap

Partitioned laundry basket 

A partitioned laundry basket is a great way to begin sorting your clothes. They usually come in sections of two or three. This means that you can have a partition for your colours and darks if you have two partitions, or colours, blacks, and whites, if you have three partitions. If you stick to only putting the correct colour in each section of your laundry basket, when it comes to laundry day, it will be as simple as unloading one partition at a time. 

A basket per room 

Alternatively, to the partitioned laundry basket, you could assign a washing basket per room in your home. This means that you can do a load of washing per room at any given time. You will find that by using this method you will begin washing similar items and fabrics together. For example, a laundry basket in the bathroom will be filled with towels of the same or similar fabrics. This saves time sifting through your clothes to find similar fabrics that can be washed on the same setting. 

Separate pre-treated clothing

When you stain your clothing it’s always best to treat the stain immediately. After you’ve pre-treated your stain, if you don’t want to wash the item of clothing straight away, separate it from the rest of your washing and put your pre-treated items in the same pile. This will help you with your laundry firstly because your stained items should be washed as a priority, but secondly, because your stained items may have been pre-treated with chemicals that could damage your non-stained clothing. 

Clothing colour

Regardless of whether you use a laundry basket, or simply create a laundry heap, it’s always a good idea to sort your clothing by colour. Create a coloured, dark, and white, pile, perhaps even separating your coloured pile into darker and lighter colours. It’s important to wash similar coloured clothing together to avoid colour run stains. By creating separate coloured piles of laundry, pre-laundry day, you save yourself the task of sifting through a basket of dirty laundry to find similar colours to wash together. 

Fabric type

As important as it is to wash similar colours of clothing together, it is also important to wash similar fabric types together. When your clothing goes into the washing machine, the items rub against one another as the washing machine spins. If you wash a rougher fabric, such as denim, with a delicate fabric, such as silk, this rubbing together creates friction that can cause fibres to break, leading to the delicate fabric to tear. To avoid this, make sure that you wash similar materials together. This will also help you decide what setting to wash your items on as some materials are best washed on hotter or colder washes. 

Level of dirtiness 

If you have clothing that is very dirty, a muddy sports kit, for example, it’s best to separate this clothing from the rest of your washing. Incredibly dirty clothing may have to be washed more than once in order to fully remove the dirt. If you wash your dirty clothing with less soiled clothing, you risk dirtying your normal laundry further. It’s best to sort your heavily soiled laundry separately, washing it as a priority, then cleaning your washing machine out before doing your usual laundry load. This will prevent any cross-contamination of dirt and ensure that all of your laundry is effectively cleaned.

How to motivate yourself to do laundry

It seems that laundry is a never-ending chore. The longer you let your laundry pile up, the more exhaustive the task seems and the less likely you are to do it. Here are some tips on how to motivate yourself to get your laundry done.

  • Put your dirty washing in plain sight
  • Pre-plan your time
  • Don’t do it alone
  • Set small goals
  • Give yourself an ultimatum 
  • Use your favourite scent
  • Make it fun
  • Play music
  • Reward yourself
  • Use Laundryheap

Put your dirty washing in plain sight 

There is no better way to motivate yourself to do laundry than to put it somewhere that is unavoidable. If you leave your laundry in plain sight, your only two options are to do your laundry or to look at your dirty washing, and nobody wants to spend their day looking at dirty washing. 

Pre-plan your time

If you know that you’re not a fan of doing your washing, then pre-plan your time. Block out a section of your day that will be used solely for completing your washing. Don’t fill that block of time with anything else other than washing duties. This way, you will know in advance when you will be doing your laundry and can complete the task free from distractions.

Don’t do it alone

Some people find motivation in being surrounded by others. If you are one of those people, invite someone round whilst you are doing your laundry. A friend, a family member, a partner, whoever you decide. You can catch up whilst simultaneously getting your washing done. That laundry pile will be non-existent in no time.

Set small goals 

If you have a large pile of laundry to get through, break down the workload by setting yourself small goals. It can be overwhelming when you have a mountain of laundry to tackle, but breaking down the job into smaller goals will make it more manageable. Once you begin achieving these small goals you will become more motivated to achieve the next one, and before you know it your laundry will be done. 

Give yourself an ultimatum

If you are drastically unmotivated to do your laundry, set yourself an ultimatum that will force you into doing it. This could be something as simple as not seeing a friend if your washing isn’t completed by the end of the week. You want to give yourself an ultimatum that will motivate you into doing the laundry so think of something that you really want to do. 

Use your favourite scent 

Everyone loves the smell of fresh laundry, and if your laundry smells of something you particularly love it can motivate you to get it done. Pick a laundry detergent smell that you love and watch as you look forward to doing your laundry every week. 

Make it fun

Let’s face it, doing laundry is boring. That being said, if the boring nature of doing laundry is what is preventing you from completing the task, why not have some fun with it? Turn doing the laundry into a game, or hide (wrapped) treats in your dirty laundry to find. Whatever it is, add a fun element to doing your laundry and you will not hesitate to do the laundry again.

Play music 

Listening to music makes any task go faster. Make yourself a special laundry playlist and include all of your favourite songs. You’ll be so busy listening to tune after tune that you won’t even realise that you’ve sorted, and washed, all of your washing until you’ve reached the bottom of your basket. 

Reward yourself

Laundry is such a mundane task to complete it’s only right that you should be rewarded once you’ve completed it. Choose any reward you want- unlimited TV watching for the rest of the day, a glass of wine, a bar of chocolate, whatever your reward is remember that it is waiting for you at the bottom of your laundry pile.

The benefits of steaming your clothes

Clothes steamers are perfect for when your clothes need freshening up but not a full wash in the washing machine. The benefits of steaming your clothes do not stop there.

  • Preserves clothing 
  • Removes stains
  • Kills odors 
  • Reduces allergens 
  • Removes wrinkles

Preserves clothing 

Over-washing causes irreversible damage to your clothing. Each time you wash your clothes the different materials rubbing together in the machine causes fibers to weaken. This can lead to holes and rips that are near impossible to repair. Clothes steamers do not include any chemicals other than water and heat, meaning that they are much gentler on clothing fibers. If your clothes are unstained, using a clothes steamer is a fast and effective way to freshen your clothing without damaging their fibers. 

Removes stains 

Clothes steamers are particularly useful at getting rid of stubborn stains. Before using your steam cleaner, pre-treat the stain in the most effective way depending on what has caused it. Once the stain has been pre-treated, aim your steam cleaner directly at the stain for around 30 seconds. The heat from the steam will loosen the stain and work with the pre-treatment to remove it. 

Kills odours 

If your clothing is unstained but odorous a steam cleaner will lift odours and leave your clothes ready to re-wear. When water reaches a steaming level it becomes hot enough to deactivate bacteria that cause odours. If you have a particularly stubborn odour, spray the strongest smelling area with a combination of white vinegar and water, this will help deactivate the bacteria and lift the smell from your clothes.

Reduces allergens 

If you suffer from allergies, such as hayfever, a clothes steamer can help alleviate your symptoms. When you use a clothes steamer, the steam pushes through the fibers of your clothing, eradicating any lingering bacteria, dust mites, or pollen. This is particularly helpful during hayfever season when pollen sticks to your clothing after being outside.

Reduces wrinkles 

If you hate ironing investing in a clothes steamer could be your saving grace. Hang your item of clothing on a coat hanger and gently run your clothes steamer up and down the garment. The steam will loosen the fibers of the fabric, allowing wrinkles in the material to be released. This will leave you with fresh, un-wrinkled, clothing without the need for an iron

Hacks for folding clothes

Sometimes the worst part of doing laundry is having to fold and put away your clean clothes. Try these handy hacks for folding clothes to make your laundry easier. 

  • T-shirt
  • Jumper
  • Dress shirt
  • Trousers 
  • Socks

T-shirt

If you are someone who folds their T-shirts and stacks them in a draw, one on top of the other, then this folding hack will be a game-changer. Folding your T-shirts to stack on top of one another may be fast and easy, but your neat pile will soon become a mess once you realise the T-shirt you want is right at the bottom. To avoid this mess, fold your T-shirts so that they can be placed in an upright position and neatly stacked behind one another. This way all your T-shirts can easily be seen and picked up without causing a mess. 

How to fold your T-shirt

  1. Begin by folding one side of the T-shirt, lengthwise, towards the middle of the T-shirt so that it’s roughly level with the neckline. 
  2. Fold the sleeve of the side you have folded back over the folded fabric.
  3. Take the non-folded side of the T-shirt and fold it over the folded third of your T-shirt. 
  4. Fold your remaining sleeve back over the folded fabric. 
  5. Take your T-shirt and fold it in half, leaving the bottom of your T-shirt showing.
  6. Finally, fold your T-shirt into a third, making a rectangle shape that will stand up on its own.

Jumper

Now that we have welcomed summer, it’s time to fold away our winter jumpers to make room for lighter materials. To ensure that your jumpers will be wearable next winter, it’s best to store them safely and appropriately. This includes being careful of the way that you fold them.

How to fold a jumper 

  1. Begin by folding the arms of your jumper inwards, across the jumper and parallel to the hem. 
  2. Take one side of the jumper and fold it inwards towards the middle, repeating the process with the other side. 
  3. Take the bottom of your jumper and fold it in half upwards, turning your jumper into a neat square shape that can easily be packed away until next winter.

Dress shirt 

It’s always best to hang your dress shirts up to avoid creases. That being said, if you are packing a dress shirt to travel or you want to make space in your wardrobe for clothing you wear more often than it’s always best to fold your dress shirts in a way that will minimise creasing.  

How to fold a dress shirt

  1. Fold one side of your shirt inwards towards the centre.
  2. Take the sleeve of the folded side of the shirt and fold them back over the fold, folding them again so that they are half their length. 
  3. Repeat steps one and two on the other side of your shirt.
  4. Once both sides of your shirt have been folded inwards, take the bottom of your shirt and fold it in half lengthwise. This should make a rectangle that will be easy to store away.

Trousers

Similarly to dress shirts, trousers should be hung up in your wardrobe to avoid them taking up space in your drawers. That being said, if you prefer your trousers to be stored away in a draw, or if you are packing trousers to travel, there is a very easy way to fold them.

How to fold trousers 

  1. Fold your trousers in half by placing one leg on top of the other and matching up both sides of the waistband. 
  2. Next, fold your trousers in half lengthwise by bringing the hem of your trousers up to just under your trousers’ waistband- this should create a long rectangle shape.
  3. To create a smaller shape, fold your trousers in half, lengthwise, again.

Socks

It’s very easy to lose your socks or get pairs of socks mixed up. To avoid odd socks, it’s always best to fold them.

How to fold socks 

  1. Lay one sock flat on top of the other, making sure that the toes and heels are matched up. 
  2. Fold the toes of the socks upwards, stopping just shy of the elasticated top of your socks. 
  3. Finish by folding your socks in half again so that they can just about stand on their own.

When should you use fabric softener?

Fabric softener can be a very useful addition to your laundry routine, but it shouldn’t be used all the time. So, when should you use fabric softener?

  • What is fabric softener?
  • When do I add fabric softener?
  • Hard water areas
  • Bed linen
  • Keep clothes looking new 
  • Sensitive skin 
  • Clothes likely to bobble

What is fabric softener?

Before answering the question of when you should use fabric softener, we need to first understand what it is. To begin with, as the name implies, fabric softener softens your clothing and leaves it smelling fresh. Asides from this, it will strengthen the fabric of your clothing, therefore making your clothes easier to iron. 

When do I add fabric softener?

Many people believe that fabric softener should be added to your washing at the same time as detergent. This is incorrect. You should add your fabric softener during your rinse cycle. Adding softener during a wash cycle will remove the chemical residue that makes your clothing soft, therefore making it ineffective.

Fabric softener should be used for the following situations.

Hard water areas 

If you live in a hard water area, you may notice that your clothing comes out of the washing machine feeling rough. This is because the mineral content in hard water is high and attaches to the fibres in your clothing, making the fabric stiffer than in soft water areas. Adding fabric softener to your wash can remove some of those harsh minerals, resulting in softer clothing.

Bed linen 

Everybody loves crisp, soft, clean-smelling sheets. When washing your bed linen, add some fabric softener. The next time you get into bed you will be met with soft sheets and a heavenly smell that will make it even harder for you to get out of bed.

Keep clothes looking new 

It’s awful when you put your favourite jumper in the wash and it comes out unravelled and with a hole in it. Fabric softener smooths the fibres in your clothing, reducing the friction caused when washing, and therefore reducing wear and tear. Adding a small amount of fabric softener to your washing can prevent the loss of your favourite clothing, and keep your clothes looking newer for longer. 

Sensitive skin  

For those that suffer from sensitive skin, be careful with the fabric softener that you buy. Some softeners are perfumed and can, therefore, cause additional irritation. That being said, if you buy a sensitive skin friendly fabric softener, it can eliminate irritation caused by rough clothing rubbing against your skin.

Clothes likely to bobble 

Bobbles on clothing can really damage the aesthetic of your favourite look. They occur when friction causes the fibres on the surface of your clothing to rub together, resulting in small, irritating, balls of loose fabric. Fabric softener strengthens the fibres in your clothing, preventing bobbling from occurring. Now, you can strut down the street in your best outfit, completely bobble free. 

If you’re still not sure when to use your fabric softener, leave it to us. Book your contactless delivery slot on the Laundryheap website or by downloading the free Laundryheap app.

Spring Fashion 2020

It’s time to pack away the jumpers and make room for clothing of a lighter kind as we welcome spring 2020 to our wardrobes. This new season brings with it the possibility of a brand new wardrobe of vibrant colours and lighter fabrics. Here’s what you can expect from spring fashion 2020. 

  • The disco collar 
  • Shorts of all lengths
  • Highlighter colours
  • The return of the waistcoat 
  • A new look for leather

The disco collar 

We’re heading back to the ’70s this spring with the disco collar. This pronounced collar will be seen on coats, jackets, and shirts both on and off the dancefloor. If you’re feeling brave, choose a collar in a contrasting colour, guaranteed to leave you with that Saturday night fever.

Shorts of all lengths 

Short shorts are making a return this season, so bring your legs out of hiding and show them off to the world. Pair your shorts with a long-sleeved top or light jacket, and finish off the look with knee-high boots to stop your legs from getting cold during those April showers. 

If short shorts aren’t for you, Bermuda shorts are the way forward. Jazz up your usual office attire with a classy Bermuda short suit- perfect for keeping cool in the office.

Highlighter colours 

We’ve been back to the ’70s, but now we’re re-winding to the ’80s for the return of neon. This spring, highlighter neons will be bringing us sunshine on even the cloudiest of days. To tone down your look, pair your neons with black, white and tan items of clothing. Alternatively, if you aren’t quite ready to embrace the colour intensity, add some neon to your wardrobe with a subtle accessory.

The return of the waistcoat 

Back in 2005, supermodel Kate Moss made waistcoats a fashion staple when she paired hers with a pair of denim shorts at Glastonbury. Now, the waistcoat is making its return. Whether you want to wear it on its own, with a flowing shirt or as part of a three-piece-suite, this fashion classic will definitely be found somewhere in your wardrobe this spring.

We’ll soon be seeing hot pink leather skirts paired with electric blue leather jackets- nothing is being done subtly this season.

How To Prevent Clothes From Fading In The Wash

No one likes wearing worn-out clothing where the colour has faded; that’s why it’s essential to look after our clothes for it to remain in good condition. Prevent your dark coloured clothes from fading in the wash with these tips.

How To Prevent Clothes From Fading In The Wash

  • Wash in cold water
  • Wash inside out
  • Use vinegar or salt
  • Don’t wash too often
  • Dry naturally

Wash In Cold Water

When it comes to washing your dark clothes, always run them through a cold wash with a temperature of 30/40°c to help preserve the fabric’s dye and fibres. Avoid washing at warmer temperatures as the heat will cause the colour to bleed out.

Wash Inside Out

Before washing your dark clothes, turn them inside out. It will help to reduce the friction from rubbing against other clothing which causes fabric fibres to break and will prevent colour fading colour on the outside layer.

Use Vinegar Or Salt

These ingredients come in handy when it comes to protecting the colours of your clothes. Add a cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle or half a cup of salt to the wash cycle.

Don’t Wash Too Often

If your clothes aren’t visibly dirty or smelly, there’s no need to wash them. Most clothing pieces can be worn a few times before washing anyway. Check out how often you should be washing your clothes. For clothes that don’t need frequent washing, spot clean them if you notice a bit of dirt after 1-2 wears.

Dry Naturally

To preserve the colour after washing, it’s best to naturally air dry your clothes by hang dry or dry flat, away from direct contact of the sun. 

By following these tips, you can be sure to keep the colours on your clothes from fading in the wash and lasting years to come. If you require a professional laundry or dry cleaning service that collects and delivers to your door, book a collection with Laundryheap

How To Remove Stains From Silk Clothing

With a delicate fabric like silk, it’s hard to imagine what to do when you accidentally spill or drop something. If you’re not sure how to remove a stain from silk clothing, follow this simple guide.

What To Remember When Cleaning Silk

Whether it’s for spot cleaning or pre-treating before washing your silk garment, it’s important to remember these points. 

  • Check for colourfastness- The last thing you would want is the fabric losing its colour. Test clothes for colourfastness before treating stains.
  • Don’t rub the stain- Gently blot instead. 
  • Wash gently- Use a mild detergent and wash gently in cold water.
  • Avoid machine drying- The heat is will damage it and cause shrinkage.
  • Don’t use bleach Using bleach on silk will damage the natural fibres.

How To Remove Stains From Silk Clothing

Treat the stain as soon as possible and gently blot the stain to remove excess before commencing stain removal. Use a paper towel, clean cloth or cotton wool to treat the stain.

  • For a gentle stain remover, dilute a few tablespoons of either white vinegar or lemon with two cups of lukewarm water.
  • For tougher stains, you can either increase the ratio of vinegar to water or dilute a few tablespoons of alcohol/ ammonia with lukewarm water.

You can also choose to use a branded stain remover made for delicate garments. If you desire a more professional approach to remove tough stains, book a collection with a laundry service.
