Dad’s slacks and polos for office, kuya’s school uniform, ate’s favorite Sunday dress, bunso’s comfy pajamas. There’s just so much to wash, dry and press and in so little time. Even when it’s raining cats and dogs outside, mommies can try these four laundry hacks to save the day
1. Removing mud stains
Kuya comes home with mud splatters on his white school polo, no thanks to the hurrying car that sped by while he was walking near a rain puddle. If the stain hasn’t had time to seep through the fabric, hand-wash the part that has a stain first using a strong detergent, without wetting the whole fabric as the stain will just spread to the rest of the clothing. When the stain is removed, the entire garment can be cleaned in the washing machine.
Hanabishi offers fully automatic top load (HAWMD 170) and twin tub washing machines to suit Filipino households’ preferences and needs. As a consistent Kapartner ng Praktikal na Nanay at Bossing, Hanabishi makes available to the local market quality yet affordable products that stand the test of the seasons.
2. Ironing stubborn wrinkles
Mix 20ml of fabric softener with 80ml water in a spray bottle and spray clothes before ironing. This will allow the fabric to smoothen out wrinkles. To make life easier, the Hanabishi Flatiron Hi 89 has a built-in container and spray. Just fill the container with the mixture, spray and glide the wrinkles away!
Who wants to iron the whole day away, especially when it’s nicer to curl up and take a nap when the sky looks dark and sleepy? But if ironing is really a must (because dad still has to go to office, no matter what), Hanabishi has multiple flat iron models to choose from. Most models have thermostat and thermal fuse features so they shut off automatically when they reach the needed temperature. This avoids clothes from being burned. In addition, Hanabishi flat irons are non-stick, so they glide smoothly on different kinds of fabric without damaging the clothes.
3. Conserving electricity
Even if it’s tempting to dump all the clothes into the washing machine in one go to save time and energy, this practice actually uses more power and causes more friction which can damage the clothes. It’s better to divide the laundry into lighter loads and using shorter wash times per load.
When there is a high pile of clothes, Hanabishi has got it covered! Its Twin Tub Washing Machine series specifically the HWM 270 is equipped with a dryer that is high in power and low in electricity consumption.
Semi-dry clothes hung indoors will benefit from an open window so that air circulates freely to help it dry faster. For extra faster drying time, semi-dry clothes can also be ironed first before hanging them in an airy room.
Rainy season is usually a stressful one to moms. Good thing Hanabishi is a great garment care warrior!
