The machine, ready.
During the week we put several washing machines. Thanks to them, the clothes are clean but ... And inside the machine? Do you dedicate time to its maintenance? Over the years, washing machines accumulate mold and give off a bad smell. If you do not want this to happen, after each wash dry the drum and the rubbers with a clean dry cloth. And once a month, make an empty load with 4 cups of bleach and another empty load with 4 cups of white distilled vinegar. And it will look like new!
The carpets are also for summer.
Gone is the idea of associating carpets with winter, due to their thermal and acoustic insulation. In microcement floors, tiles and wood, these textiles come in handy all year. In summer, choose materials that transpiren, natural, light and fresh, such as jute, hemp or coconut, which also give such a decorative touch!
Put your dryer to work.
Insert curtains, comforters and even cushions in the washing machine in a cycle without spin. Upon completion, pass them to the dryer in an air cycle alone (without heat) for 15 minutes. Tend the laundry. In the case of curtains, if you want, you can re-hang them immediately to avoid wrinkles.
The weight of the furniture leaves unpleasant marks on the carpets that we only notice when we remove them. Remove them easily by rubbing the affected part with an ice cube. The carpet will return to normal in the blink of an eye.
