Give them enough space to allow creases to fall out and to let them air. For the same reason, do not pack things too tightly into drawers. In drawers, put sets of underwear together. Organize sweaters, T-shirts and so forth according to color, or by weight — heavy sweaters in one drawer, lighter-weight ones in another, T-shirts in another.
How To Care For Pillows? Most pillows are ﬁlled with down, feathers — or a mixture of the two — or with a synthetic ﬁlling, such as foam or Hollowﬁbre.The pillow you buy is very much a matter of personal preference — although it is worth remembering that most chiropractors and physiotherapists recommend sleeping on only one pillow, at a height that keeps your head aligned with your spine.

The iron’s plate should be regularly checked to ensure there are no mineral deposits on it which can cause brown marks during ironing. The steam holes should be cleaned only when the iron cold. Scrub the holes with pipe cleaners soaked in soapy water. Next, eliminate the soapy water by turning on the iron and steam it out. For a dirty plate, gently rub the plate with a mild scrub cream cleaner.
Make sure to use only distilled water for your steam iron. Use a heat reflective cover for the ironing board for quicker and easier ironing. The temperature of the iron should be set according to the general laundering symbols found on the tags.
