Happy (new year) wishes.

A few gifts to start off on the right foot: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect. It’s a fresh year with new opportunities and challenges, new rewards and surprises. New friends and new […]

Glittering holiday.

Here’s a very tiny tip: When the shine comes off, and the carpet’s covered in glitter from ornaments, decorating and celebrating, grab a ball of Play-Do. Roll it over the mess to pick up the loose bits of shine. That’s about as much housecleaning as we’re going to do today. Article source: http://weeklytips.brightleafweb.com/?p=1268

Corduroy comeback.

The experts at GQ recommend choosing classic colors for a blazer, like hunter green or rich marine blue, in a thin to medium-wide wale. Avoid baggy fit or too-worn cuffs and elbows — a crisp new corduroy blazer with updated fit won’t break the bank. A sporty corduroy blazer pairs as well with dark slacks […]

Velvet everywhere.

This season, we’re seeing more lush, plush fabrics than ever. Velour, velveteen and velvet all rely on cut pile for luxurious feel. Velvet is woven, cut and crushed while velveteen is simply woven and velour is knit. All the V fabrics are comfortable, warm and susceptible to wrinkles, creases and pilling. Always hang velvet on […]

Daylight Saving Time…

ends this Sunday. Now’s the time to store away your warm weather clothes. It’s a good tradition and a great way to make closet space for the bulkier winter clothes. Just don’t add moth balls to your stored garments — instead use cedar chips or dried lavender. Moth balls contain naphthalene or paradichlorobenzene, petroleum-based chemicals […]

Corduroy classic.

Autumn favorite, corduroy needs special cleaning care to preserve the rich velvety pile and prevent shrinking. If your corduroy garment is washable, check the label before throwing it in the wash. Never wash with lint producers like fleece, felt or terry. Use the right water temperature, wash like colors together and turn the garment inside […]

Thanksgiving leftovers.

If candles dripped on the tablecloth, let everything cool and peel the wax off with your fingers.  If it’s stubborn, freeze the tablecloth, then scrape off the wax with a credit card. Wash in hot water to remove the remaining embedded wax. Better yet, and a lot easier, bring your table linens to us for […]
