I actively avoid ironing men’s shirts so much so that I buy the wrinkle free kind and will restart the dryer to avoid wrinkles. However, I actually am pretty good at ironing shirts and I can iron about 10 shirts in 20 minutes. Today I’ll share my […]
This is one of my most asked questions I get and one of the most references I make on the blog and I am now just getting to doing a post about it. My DIY fabric softener with no mixing required. Bonus, it helps keep your washer from stinking.
No Mix DIY Fabric Softener
For once in my life, I knew what I wanted to wear last Friday, but it was wrinkly. With my morning routine, I had about 30 seconds to do something about the wrinkles, or choose something else to wear as I don’t leave enough time for myself for another one of my Continue Reading →
I thought it might be about time for another laundry post and today’s tip is inspired by this pin and also by the fact that it seems like laundry always creeps up on me. Laundry should realize that if there is still a load sitting in the dryer, the dirty laundry baskets […]
I bought a new red shirt from Old Navy and really loved it, until I took it off to see that it had turned my white undershirt pink. Pink like you accidentally threw a red item in with your whites in the wash (which I’ve done on more than one occasion) pink. Boo. After […]

It seems like I should be promoting ironing and how to iron a dress shirt properly, but I’m not. Don’t get me wrong, I like ironing, but I don’t always have the time and find it quite unnecessary if the proper steps are taken. When I’m washing the Husband’s work clothes, I […]
I must admit, it took me a while to learn how to fold a fitted sheet. Fitted sheets in my house were halfheartedly folded in to a tall squarish lump and shoved into the closet you quickly close (because that’s how much junk lives in there) until I finally learned how. That pin with […]
Two Clothing Stain Facts
You will spill on yourself when you wear white.
You will spill at the most inconvenient time.
