My cleaning posts seem to be a little obsessed with laundry at the moment (see here and here) – probably because it’s one of those tasks that I dread. With sorting, washing, hanging out on the line (or putting in the dryer), bringing in, ironing/folding up and putting away, washing your clothes is one of those jobs that takes all day. It’s short bursts of effort at a time, but the very thought of laundry fills me with dread. Luckily, I had a large washing machine, so I can get away with only doing a load a couple of times a week.
“I never iron. I just mix a teaspoon of lavender oil – the cheapest kind available – in a litre of water and mist it over the clothes before wearing them or hanging them in the wardrobe. Lavender oil is a fibre relaxant…you see the creases disappear before your eyes.”
I’ll be buying lavender oil the next time I go to the shops to give this a go!
Have you tried using lavender oil? What are your tips to minimise ironing? Let me know in the comments!
