Tips in Caring for your clothes

We love shopping for gorgeous clothes and perhaps we should know how to take care of them in order for them to stay that way.

The Number One TIP on how to take care of your clothes is : TO CHECK THE LABELS on your clothes before you wash them. But most manufacturers state “dry clean only” on their clothing label in order to free them from any liability if the clothes get damaged after washing.

Most of your clothes are made of cotton because it is the most common natural clothing fiber but if you wash it in high temperature it will shrink so better wash it in cool water.

If you own silk clothes you should know how to take care of them. Some silks must be dry-cleaned and some can be hand-washed in lukewarm water with a gentle detergent.

You could also add fabric conditioner in your wash to make clothes easier to iron.

And speaking of fabric conditioner and laundry detergent, you should try Smart Steps for your baby clothes because they are hypoallergenic, Pedia-recommended and they are great for sensitive skin. Smart Steps has no dyes, no optical brighteners, no enzyme, no artificial colorant, and no bleach so you don’t have to worry about anything.

Nothing’s Change for the last 10 years

We are very busy for the past few days cleaning our house because our Town Fiesta is fast-approaching and we don’t want the guests and visitors to see dust and garbage around our living room. And because the “cleaner soul” in me wants to get all the things cleaned, I took the liberty of checking out some old boxes stashed in the house helper’s room. And look what I found:

Yep, that is me! TODAY! I am wearing my old high school cheerleader’s uniforms and gosh I could still squeeze myself into them. When I was a freshman, sophomore and junior I used to be a member of the cheerleaders squad but when I was in my senior year I bid goodbye to cheerleading and joined the field demonstration group.

After my photo op above, I looked into my old album and took a photo of myself when I was still in High School and here they are:

Fashionable Gift Ideas from your Travels

I love to travel and saying that statement is an understatement already. I also love to buy gifts for the people that I love, from my family to my friends to my relatives. Sometimes it is hard to think of what to bring to my kins because they almost have everything and giving them something not that pricey might not enticed them but then again its the thought that counts and not that price tag so I always make sure that I bring them gifts from my travels.

I used to buy little trinkets and key chains because they are the most lightweight piece of gifts I could find and aside from that the most inexpensive ones. But then most tourist spots inside and outside the country has been selling fashionable wrap skirt with marks of the places that I have been so I realized it is another cool gift to bring home from my travels. Aside from that there are so many uses or wrap skirts now so they can use it whenever they can.

T-shirts with prints from different places are cool gifts too but they are bulky to bring home and sometimes will not fit into my luggage so I think I will still prefer the sarongs because the fabric used are more lightweight than the shirts and can be fold to fit in my luggage. If you haven’t tried buying sarongs or wrap skirts as gifts from your travels, I think you should try it believe me you could save a lot of money and a lot of space in your bag.
