I’ve mentioned oxygen bleach in a bunch of my previous blog posts, but it has so many merits that I figured it deserved its own write up. Spoiler: I absolutely LOVE oxygen bleach! In fact, if I had to choose only one laundry additive to use for the rest of my life, that would be it.
I firmly believe that wicking exercise fabric is one of the greatest inventions of our time. I’m old enough to remember what wet, sweaty and cold cotton feels like against the skin and I hope to never, ever have to experience that again! But at the same time a lot of folks are understandably confused by how these kinds of athletic garments should be laundered. The labels say to wash workout clothes in cold water on the delicate cycle, yet that often leads to the garments taking on a funky odor that seems impossible to get rid of.
Yoga mat cleaner sprays are one of those little things that absolutely delight me. They are small, they are cute, they usually smell really nice, and they remind you of all the use your yoga mat is getting. Not to mention keeping your mat clean and stink-free!
This blog post was inspired by my readers – over the past couple of months it has been hands down the most frequently asked laundry question: people want to know which natural laundry detergents work best and how to choose the one that will best fit their needs.
My laundry blog posts have been mostly devoted to detergents recently, so I thought I’d change things up a little and put together this step by step tutorial on how to clean a condenser dryer. If you’ve read my Miele W3038 review you probably know that I also own the corresponding condenser dryer – the Miele T8023C. Unlike the more common in the US type of vented dryer condensers do not blow the air outside and do not require any kind of special connection other than a 220V electric plug. They also require a different kind of maintenance, which I’m going to illustrate in this tutorial.
Just a couple of weeks ago one of my Canadian readers sent me a note to let me know that they had gone searching for Persil only to find that it wasn’t available in Canada. For some reason I was sure that the detergent would have launched at the same time in both the US and Canada, but apparently that wasn’t the case.
