Those winter days yearn for cardigans as they keep you warm and cosy! Cardigan is essential for the winter but because of its delicacy, it does need special care and attention. With proper care, your cardigans will last for years. In this blog, we’ll give you the best tips to care for your cardigans!
1. Always Read The Label
When it comes to other garments, you might be able to get away with ignoring the label (even if it’s advised to read it). However, with cardigans, you will risk shrinking and fading them if you don’t read the label and proceed to wash them without care.
As a rule, try to avoid the washing machine because this can cause shrinking. Always opt to wash by hand as it helps preserve them better and keeps their fabrics intact.
To do this, wash your cardigan in cold water using a non-bio detergent. Let your cardigan soak for 30 minutes and then start to rinse under cold water. Once it’s been rinsed, gently squeeze the water out and roll it in a towel to ensure all the water is gone.
3. Don’t Over-Wash
Cardigans are mostly made out of wool and if it gets exposed to too much water regularly, they will start to wear down and lose their quality. To keep it safe, wash it every 5 wears but even then, spot-cleaning usually does the job.
Your body is not prone to sweat in the winter, so you won’t need to wash your cardigan as much, but if there is a spill or stain, you need to wash it immediately.
4. Wear a T-Shirt Underneath
It’s common for people to wear multiple layers in the winter. It does the job and keeps us warm! While cardigans do a great job themselves in keeping us cosy and warm, wearing a t-shirt underneath actually takes care of your cardigans better. This is because a t-shirt plays the part of a barrier that limits sweat and odour from getting to your cardigan. If there is less sweat on your cardigan, there is less need to wash the cardigan so it does a great job in preservation!
5. Fold Your Cardigans
A crucial tip to care for your cardigans is to fold, not hang, them. Hanging will cause them to stretch and lose their shape. So whenever you have washed and dried your cardigans, ensure they are folded neatly in a drawer or a shelf.
6. Contact Professionals To Care Of Your Cardigans
Winter is a great time to be all snuggled up on the sofa, drinking hot chocolate and watching TV. The thought of getting up to do your laundry chores can be annoying. The good news is, with Laundryheap, you can rely on us to take great care of your cardigans so you can stay cosy!
Winter brings hot chocolate, cosy nights, and crisp fresh air in the morning. With all the joy winter can bring, it can also be the source of laundry frustrations. Clothes take longer to dry in the winter due to the cold air but with better preparations, you can stay on top of your laundry. To help you do just that, we’ve compiled a list of winter laundry tips!
1. Choose a Room With The Best Drying Space
As the rainy days come more frequently, doing the laundry gets more frustrating. There is less heat so in turn, clothes take longer to dry. Luckily, there are effective ways to dry your clothes indoors.
To keep your clothes in top condition, we recommend drying your clothes in a room that has ventilation as it prevents mould, dampness and moisture damage.
When you do dry your clothes, be sure to place the drying rack next to an open window so there is good airflow that speeds up the drying process. It’s best you also close the door to allow the air to circulate around the room.
2. Hang Clothes Properly
As far as winter laundry tips go, hanging clothes properly is right up there in terms of importance. While it may sound obvious, it is unfortunately a common mistake many do. When you are hanging clothes, make sure the thicker clothes go on top so they can dry faster because air circulates most at the top.
For the clothes (i.e. thinner and smaller clothes) that require less time to dry, place them at the bottom.
3. Make Use Of The Sun
Doing laundry in the winter is like a game of cat and mouse; you need to take advantage of the sun when it is out. If it’s out, get on top of your laundry chores and use the drying clothesline outside so your garments can dry much quicker.
4. Re-wear Clothes
In the wintertime, you are less prone to sweating so clothes have less chance of smelling bad. Re-wearing clothes also reduce the amount of time you need to wash your clothes. In reality, washing clothes that aren’t dirty will not preserve their condition and will only waste energy and laundry detergent.
5. Wash Coats Twice In Winter
Your winter coats are essential for the season. Make sure you take care of them. The minimum times you should be washing them is twice in the winter.
To do this, you need to pour laundry detergent in cold water and place the jacket in it. After this, put the coat inside the washing machine and wash on a gentle cycle for 30 minutes. It’s essential you squeeze it gently before drying it on very low heat.
An extra tip for you, if you do add tennis balls in the dryer with the winter coat, it will help regain the fluffiness!
Everybody has a love/hate relationship with winter. As beautiful the scenery can be during this season, it does make laundry difficult, but we hope these 5 winter laundry tips have prepared you well!
Nothing says the winter season is here like the days getting shorter and colder. For hotels, winter is a period where you will get an influx of tourists booking to stay. For this reason alone, it’s important to start preparing how to cater to guests in this season. To help you do just that, we’ve compiled 4 ways to prepare your hotel for winter!
1. Maintain a Strict Cleaning Schedule
Hygiene is important all year and all seasons. Whether it’s Spring, Summer or Autumn, you’ll want to maintain cleaning standards. However, there are higher chances of people getting cold and the flu during the winter so be sure to go boost your hygiene practices. Follow deep cleaning procedures after a guest has checked out.
Hoovering rooms, putting hand sanitisers in the reception and cleaning bed linens and towels all go a long way in stamping out any germs and bacteria.
2. Inspect Hotel Boiler
Picture this – your guests book a room at your hotel – expecting a warm and cosy stay. Then they discover the room feels a little cold and there is no hot water.
It’s a recipe for a bad review – especially in winter when everyone wants to be inside. To avoid a situation like this, inspect your hotel’s boiler and make it a top priority. January and February are very cold months so make sure to get your hotel’s boiler checked as soon as possible to prepare your hotel for winter!
3. Make Rooms More Comfortable
When it comes to winter, every detail of your hotel room must be of high standards. We’re not just talking about just the beds, pillows and towels but also about the room temperature and room amenities. After all, nothing beats the feeling of drinking a hot drink in a warm room.
To do our part in keeping your rooms up to standards, we do offer linen hire services! Our bed linen is fresh, smooth and of high quality! Not only will investing in our bed linens guarantee comfort and quality sleep for your guests but it will also maintain overall cleanliness!
4. Provide Bathroom Essentials
A relaxing and warm shower in the winter is a heavenly feeling for guests. Be sure to provide the essential toiletries that your guests need such as body lotion, conditioner, shampoo, and shower gel.
Don’t forget the towels too! With Laundryheap Linen, you can order some durable, fluffy and warm towels to provide your guests with.
Managing a hotel is not easy no matter what season it is but preparation always makes things easier!

It’s going to take more than just a coat to keep you warm this winter. Luckily, your trusty winter warmers are here to help. Just make sure that you look after them by following our handy guide.
10% of your body’s heat is lost through your head. Luckily, a warm hat will help prevent this heat from being lost. In winter, the most common type of hat to wear is a beanie, a close-fitting hat that clings to the head and can be worn over the ears. In the autumn and winter seasons, you will find yourself wearing your hat most, if not every, day, so to keep it clean it’s best to wash it 3-5 times each season.
Most beanie hats are made from polyester or wool and cotton blends, which are safe to wash in the washing machine. Before machine washing your beanie, first, check the care label. This will tell you if you can wash your hat in the washing machine and, if you can, what temperature and cycle to use.
To machine wash your beanie, first put it in a laundry bag to prevent it from being snagged in the machine. Next, select a cool wash setting, ideally 30 degrees Celsius, and a gentle cycle. Beanies are made to be stretchy so that they can fit over your head, however, they can stretch in the washing machine and become misshapen. A gentle cycle and cool temperature will help to prevent this from happening.
If you are worried about machine washing your beanie, hand wash it instead.
To begin hand washing your beanie, first fill a sink with cool water and add a teaspoon of mild laundry detergent. Submerge your hat in the water, and gently move it around. Make sure that you are not wringing or scrubbing your beanie whilst it’s in the water as this will cause it to stretch. Gently swirl your hat in the water for roughly 5 minutes. If it is heavily stained, allow your hat to sit in the water for 15-30 minutes so that the dirt and oils can break down and be removed.
After you have washed your beanie remove it from the detergent water and submerge it in fresh, cold, water. Swirl your hat in the fresh water until all of the detergent has been removed- you will need to replenish your water frequently until no more detergent is released. You may be tempted to hold your beanie under a stream of cool water, however, this will only result in it stretching.
Regardless of how you wash your beanie, the drying process is the same. Lay your beanie flat on a clean, dry, towel, and lay another clean, dry, towel over the top of it. Leave your top towel over your beanie for a few minutes to soak up as much excess water as possible, before removing it completely to finish air-drying. Do not wring or twist your beanie to remove water, or use a tumble dryer, as this will stretch and misshapen your hat. Leave your beanie to completely dry before wearing it.
A scarf is perfect for keeping your neck warm whilst you brave the brisk winter day. Most winter scarves are made from cotton, wool, or cashmere as these materials are thick and therefore better at keeping you warm. To ensure that your scarf keeps you warm throughout autumn and winter, wash it 3-5 times per season.
Washing machines are too harsh for some materials, such as wool and cashmere, so before washing your winter scarf make sure that it is made from cotton or polyester.
After checking that your scarf is safe to machine wash, place it in a laundry bag and into your washing machine. The laundry bag will ensure that your scarf doesn’t get snagged whilst being washed. Next, select a gentle and cold water cycle on your machine. Even though your scarf’s material is safe to machine wash, it is still delicate and therefore needs to be washed using a delicate cycle. Finally, add gentle laundry detergent to your machine and begin the wash cycle. Make sure that you are using a gentle laundry detergent as they are softer on fabrics and don’t contain dyes or harsh chemicals.
If your scarf is made from wool, cashmere, or any other delicate material, it must be hand-washed only.
To begin hand washing your scarf, fill a sink with cold water and add 1 tablespoon of gentle laundry detergent. Completely submerge your scarf in your detergent water and gently swish it around. You may want to gently squeeze each section of your scarf to ensure that it is absorbing as much water as possible. After you have swished your scarf in the water a few times, leave it to sit for 10 minutes, giving it ample time to soak up as much detergent as possible.
After 10 minutes, remove your scarf from the detergent water and rinse it under a cool running tap. Make sure that your tap is on a low water pressure to avoid any damage to the fibres of your scarf. Avoid wringing or twisting your scarf whilst you are rinsing it as this can also damage its fibres. Continue to rinse your scarf under the cool running tap until no more detergent runs from it.
Unless your winter scarf is made from fleece, you should never use a tumble dryer to dry your scarf. Instead, lay it flat on a clean, dry, towel, and place another clean, dry, towel over the top of it. Gently press down on the top towel to remove as much excess water as possible. After removing as much water as possible, remove the top towel, and leave your scarf to air dry. If your scarf is made from cotton or polyester, you can hang it on a clothes horse or outside to continue air drying.
If your scarf is made of fleece, you can dry it on a low heat setting in your tumble dryer. Make sure that you are not using a high heat setting as this will damage the fibres of your scarf.
When your hands get cold they become stiff and achy, not a particularly pleasant feeling. Gloves keep your hands warm and mobile by insulating them. To ensure that they stay in top shape, wash your gloves roughly 3-5 times each season.
Gloves can be made from a variety of different materials, however, cotton or those made with synthetic fibres are the only ones that can be machine washed. Before machine washing your gloves, check their care label to make sure that they are safe to wash in the washing machine.
To machine wash your gloves, first put them in a laundry bag and then into the washing machine. This will firstly ensure that your gloves don’t get snagged whilst in the machine, and secondly prevent them from getting lost. Next, select a cold and gentle wash cycle that won’t be too abrasive on the fibres of your gloves. Finally, add oxygen bleach to your wash and begin your cycle. Oxygen bleach will help keep the colour of your gloves vibrant, whilst killing any bacteria that may be on your gloves.
If your gloves are not made from cotton or synthetic fibres, then you will have to hand wash them. Not all gloves can be hand washed in the same way though.
Leather and faux leather
To clean your leather gloves, first use an oil-based soap to remove any stains. Gently rub the soap onto your gloves, paying extra attention to the heavily stained areas, before setting to one side to dry.
Once your gloves have dried, use a microfiber cloth to polish your gloves. This will help keep them looking shiny. Be careful not to press too hard with your microfiber cloth as this could lead to scratching the leather of your gloves.
Once you have cleaned the outside of your leather gloves, sprinkle a light dusting of corn-starch or baking soda inside your glove. The powdery particles will absorb any oils and odours inside your gloves, leaving them smelling good as new. Leave your corn-starch or baking soda for 15 minutes, before shaking it out of each glove.
To hand-wash your wool gloves, begin by filling a sink with warm water and adding a drop of gentle laundry detergent. Make sure that you are only using a drop of detergent as gloves are reasonably small and don’t require a lot of detergent.
Next, submerge your gloves in the detergent water and use a swishing motion to allow the detergent to soak into each glove. Leave your gloves for 10-15 minutes, before draining the detergent water and re-filling the sink with fresh, warm, water.
Repeat the swishing motion with your gloves, removing all of the detergent from each one. You will have to refill your sink with fresh water each time it becomes too soapy. Once you have removed the detergent from your gloves, drain the water and leave your gloves at the bottom of your empty sink. Using your hands, gently push down on each glove to remove as much excess water as possible.
Waterproof gloves are often used for skiing and don’t require much cleaning. To clean your waterproof gloves, generously spray the outside of each glove with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. This will help disinfect the outside of your gloves. To clean the inside of your gloves, sprinkle either corn-starch or baking soda into each glove and leave it for 15 minutes. The powder will work in the same way as with leather gloves, removing oils and odours.
Regardless of what material your gloves are made from you must avoid using the tumble dryer to dry them. Your waterproof and leather gloves won’t require drying because they have not come into contact with water.
To dry your cotton and wool gloves place the gloves on a clean, dry, towel and roll the towel up so that the gloves are encased. This will help squeeze any excess water from each glove without causing them to lose their shape. After a few minutes, unroll the towel and rearrange your gloves so that they are lying flat. Leave your gloves in this position to air dry, refraining from wearing them until they are completely dry.

A winter coat is a wardrobe essential this time of year. In order for it to last the whole of winter, and beyond, you must make sure that you are taking care of it.
Empty your pockets
Always hang it up
Brush it over
Remove stains immediately
Wash twice a season
Always read the care label
Send it to Laundryheap
Empty your pockets
Every time you take off your coat make sure that you empty out your pockets. Leaving heavy objects, such as keys, in your pocket for an extended period of time can lead to sagging and your coat becoming misshapen.
Always hang it up
Hanging up your coat will prevent it from becoming wrinkled and dirtied by people interacting with it. It’s best to hang your coat on a wooden hanger as these are sturdy and less likely to break. Make sure it is hung in an airy location so that it has room to reshape and rid itself of any lingering smells it may be carrying. For the best results, leave your coat for 24 hours before re-wearing.
Brush it over
To maintain the cleanliness of your coat, brush it after every wear. A suede brush will help to remove any oils that have built up throughout the day, and a lint roller will remove any lint, fluff, or threads on the surface. This will increase your coats longevity and help you maintain a presentable appearance.
Remove stains immediately
If you find a stain, do not panic. Use a damp cloth to gently pat the stain, making sure that you do not rub it as this could damage the fibres. If your coat is woollen, you can add a small amount of laundry detergent to your cloth and continue patting. If your coat is suede, try using a pencil eraser to remove the stain.
Remember, it is always best to treat stains as soon as you notice them.
Wash twice a season
Your coat should be washed at the beginning and end of every season. This will help prevent moths from infesting it during the spring and summer months. In addition, washing your coat twice a season will remove the dust, bacteria, and pollution that it picks up as you wear it, ensuring that it remains in top condition.
Always read the care label
Before you wash your coat you should always read the care label. Some coats, such as those made of wool, can be hand washed at home using a mild detergent and lukewarm water. Other coats, such as suede ones, may be dry clean only. To make sure that you are taking care of your coat in the appropriate way you must always check the care label first.
Send it to Laundryheap
If you are not confident when it comes to washing your coat, we’ve got you covered. We will pick up your coat, wash or dry-clean it depending on the care label instructions, and re-deliver it back to you, in top condition, within 24-hours.

It’s out with the cold and in the heat! Spring is finally here and that means making room in our wardrobe for our spring and summer clothes. But how and where do we store our winter clothes for the time being? Fortunately for you, we have some tips on how to store away your winter clothes properly.
The Right Way To Store Away Your Winter Clothes
Here a few things you need to do before you go to store your winter clothes away:
Before you even think about storing away your winter clothes, make sure to laundry and dry clean everything first. You don’t want to be storing them along with the dirt, bacteria and germs that your clothes have accumulated during the winter. Keep them fresh and ready to wear when the winter season comes again.
Repair any minor damages
A missing button? or loose a thread? Repair anything that appears damaged or broken before you store them away, so it’s ready for the next wear. Minor repairs can be done yourself, but you can send clothing with more difficult repairs to a local tailor to get them fixed.
Get rid of unwanted clothes
Noticed a few winter sweaters that you no longer wear? Set those pieces aside to be donated. Get rid of the winter clothes that you no longer wear anymore. Give them to your friends or family, donate them or sell them.
Plastic storage containers
Keep all your clothes neatly folded and stacked away inside plastic storage containers with tight fitting lids. Make sure not to overfill the box though as this will crease your clothes as well as not giving them air to ‘breath’. Don’t forget to include the chunky knits- it wouldn’t be a good idea to hang them as it will deform its shape.
Wooden or plastic clothes hangers
Hang your bulky coats and jackets on sturdy plastic or wooden hangers.
Hang your more delicate coats (such as fur, down or leather) and other delicate clothing in garment bags to keep them protected and in good condition.
Make sure to store your clothes in a well-ventilated area. This means avoid storing them in humid areas such as the attic or garage.
For most of us, that means turning the heating up and spending ridiculous amount of money on our energy bills. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can stay warm at home this winter AND save money on your energy bill with these 5 tips:
Block out the draughts
Keep the heating low
Use your curtains
Make the most out of your radiator
Add layers to your floor
Block out the draughts
The number one reason why it’s cold in our homes is because of poor insulation, letting in draughts! Nevertheless, there are a few ways you can stop the draught from coming in through your windows and doors.
Patch up the gaps around your windows and doors and invest in self-adhesive rubber seals or insulation tape. This is a great investment that will save you money on your heating bill! You can also purchase a door drought excluder for extra insulation.
If you’re feeling creative, do a DIYdoor draught excludersor if you’re feeling cheap, why not use a pool noodle or an old pillow/cushion to block out the draughts, it will look awkward but it will do the job!
Keep the heating low
It’s cheaper to turn on the heating at a low temperature (18-21°C/ 64-69°F) than it is to turn it on at a high temperature at your preferred time. If you’re going to use your heating, set it at a low temperature and time it to turn on an hour or 30 mins before you wake up so your house is already feeling warm. Also, avoid keeping the heating on whilst you’re out of the house.
Use your curtains
If you have curtains, here are some things you can do to try to keep the warmth from escaping through the windows:
Close the curtains before sunset to avoid the cold late night temperatures from invading in.
Keep curtains closed during the day if you’re not at home to lock in the warmth.
Use heavy curtains to block out the cold effectively, especially when you have single-glazed windows.
Make the most out of your radiator
The heat from the radiators usually go upwards than around the house. To get the warm air to spread properly, cover some card (that matches the size of your radiator) with tinfoil and place behind the radiator to reflect the heat to go outwards rather than up. This will help retain more heat. You can also purchase aready made foil insulation.
Add layers to your floor
Whether you already have a carpet or wooden floor, it’s always nice to add an extra layer on top of that, especially during the winter.
Add a rug to your carpet or wooden floor to keep cosy! You can also add a roll of carpet onto the wooden floor to keep the warm air from escaping.
Don’t forget, if the cold weather is making you lazy to do your laundry, Just schedule a collection with Laundryheap and we’ll take care of it for you! That way you can relax and enjoy being cosy and warm at home.
How do you keep your house warm and save money on your bills in the winter? Leave a comment!
I don’t know about you, but when winter comes, it just makes me feel super unproductive. The weather becomes colder, days become shorter and darker. These factors make me want to stay in the warm indoors and do nothing all day!
However, to stay indoors all day because it’s cold is unrealistic and it’s definitely not the solution to avoiding the cold weather either!
If you’re one who feels less productive during winter, here are some ways which you can stay productive during the cold months:
Catch up on household chores
Attend festivity events
Spend more time with special people
Set goals for yourself
Get physical: I know it’s ‘too cold to exercise’ but exercise keeps your body and mind active, so it will avoid you feeling unmotivated. Why not go for a walk as an exercise alternative? This will at least keep your body from feeling sluggish and will give you a head start on productivity.
Eat clean: Winter is one of the seasons where the temptation to eat junk is upon us all and not just because it’s the holidays. This is one of the reasons why we feel so lethargic during the winter. Keep your plate clean and eat foods that give you energy!
Work your winter clothes and wrap up properly. Whip out your parka, trench coat, fur coat, your wool jumpers, turtle neck jumpers, boots, etc etc. Stay warm yet stylish, because the better you feel in your winter clothes, the more you’ll want to spend time doing things you need to do.
Catch up on household chores:
Something that will surely keep you productive is catching up on household chores that you may be a bit behind on. Whether that’s dusting or scheduling your laundry to Laundryheap whilst you clean out your closet and make room for winter clothes.
Attend festivity events:
Winter fairs:As winter months typically fall between December-January, this only means festivity! You’ll find that there will be many ‘magical’ Christmas events like Winter Wonderland.
Winter markets: All around the main cities of London, there will be Christmas markets that vary between November- January. Major cities within the UK also hold these festive markets that are sometimes grand than the ones around London. Check out these top Christmas markets within the UK.
If you reside outside of the UK, I’m sure there will be many festivity events that are just as ‘magical’ for you to check out too. Just do a quick google search. 🙂
These events will surely keep your energy and spirits up for the winter!
Spend more time with special people:
Since this time around, it’s school break and holidays, it’s a great chance to spend time with family and friends! Have a catch up over a warm coffee, go ice-skating, attend a winter market/fair. Just enjoy each others company! Give yourself something to look forward to doing over the winter.
Set goals for yourself:
Winter usually means a year is ending (or has ended) and a new one will soon begin (or has begun). Why not take the time to note down things you wish to achieve in the upcoming year? This could be work or school related and even general personal development. Anything that will motivate you to work hard to achieve a goal or aspiration. You can also try and learn something new, like a language for example.
There may also be some tasks that you planned to do but never got around to doing like visiting a place you’ve always wanted to see or reading a novel you’ve always wanted to read. Why not do it now to keep yourself productive in the winter?!
