I’ve written over 250 posts so far here at Mama’s Laundry Talk, and with that comes a lot of follow-up questions. Today I am going to tackle a few. Hopefully, some of your questions will be answered as well!
- I just looked at your Stain Removal post on The Soak. Do you soak multiple items at one time?
Yes, I definitely soak multiple items at one time. That could be because I always have quite a few items in the queue ready to go in the bucket. It saves me time and money (only one scoop of Oxi Clean versus several).
- When doing The Soak, do you soak colors and whites together in the same bucket?
I do soak colors and whites together if I am certain the colors will not bleed. If it is an item that has been washed several times and has ‘proven’ that it won’t bleed, then I don’t think twice about soaking them together. If there is any question at all about whether the color will run, it soaks by itself.
- I’ve read your post on washing stuffed animals. Do you recommend washing stuffed animals that have beans or little styrofoam balls in the washer?
I would personally surface-wash those only. I’ll have a post in the next week or so on how to surface wash a stuffed animal and not ruin it. There are only very general directions in the comment section of that post. Feel free to subscribe to my feed or follow me on Face Book so you don’t miss it.
- Your post on how to get the ironing done helped me finally get our clothes ironed for work on time! I’ve heard you say you love your iron several times. What brand do you have?
I have a DeLonghi iron. And to say I love it is an understatement. It cost a lot for an iron in my opinion (keep in mind I was buying it for a home business at the time of purchase). I’ve owned several irons in my life, from the $30 one at Wal-Mart to a more expensive Rowenta. In my pretty extensive ironing experience, you get what you pay for with an iron. A cheap iron cannot possibly give you superior results. If you don’t need superior results, the cheaper model from Target is fine. If you need to iron more delicate items, if you iron a large quantity of clothes, or if you need to iron clothes with absolutely no wrinkles (think dress shirts), then you’ll want to invest in a more versatile iron. Would I have purchased the DeLonghi if wasn’t purchasing it for a home business? Probably not in all honestly. But I absolutely adore it and I have not once been dissatisfied with its results.
- Do you take guest posts?
I do if they are laundry related! 😉 In fact, I’ve published several over the past few weeks, with the most recent being a Reader Review of Purex 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets. If you have a laundry product you just can’t live without, write about and send it to me! If you’d like further details, email me: [email protected].
Do you have a specific laundry question? Leave them in the comments or shoot me an email! I’ll be happy to answer them.
