Recharge my bath towels

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

Bath towels are originated in Turkey. Some of the materials that are commonly used in the manufacturing of towels are bamboo (organic), cotton blend, linen, cotton and fibers that are not woven. All towers are weighed and measured in grams per square meter. The ones that have lower GSM are lighter. A good towel may be heavy but does not guarantee excellent quality. Some people are very particular about their towels and just pick the right one and pay heavily for it. It is found that Brazilian or Egyptian cotton is very smooth and very good at absorbing water. So taking care of them is very essential to keep them looking new and increase their usefulness.

• First, what you should do to the towels is wash them before use as you do not know from where the towel had been stored and brought from. They might contain dirt or bacteria. Some of the towels are applied with chemicals and oils to keep them less absorbent unless they are washed. You must wash the towel with warm water and half a cup of detergent along with one cup of white vinegar. The vinegar helps to get rid of the unwanted smell.

• You must also see to the number of times that you wash the towels. To keep the towel in a good state and to maintain its absorbing power, you should wash it after every couple of use. Washing also depends upon how often you use it. Some people get their towel dirty, so they require regular washing.

• People who do not dirty their towel quite often, use it many times before the wash. But you should at least make sure that you hang the towel well on the rack so that it dries up properly otherwise it tends to lose its absorptive capacity.

• Proper washing will keep the towel look new. Overstuffing of the towels with other clothes will lead to wearing off of the towel. You should not use fabric conditioner as it may reduce the absorbing capacity of the towel.

• Do not try to mix up washing of towels with that of bed sheets as it will lead to wrinkling. You should dry the towels on moderate heat and dry it completely by the dryer.

Proper care increases the life and the absorptive capacity of the towel.

5 Modern Bedroom Ideas

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

Bedroom IdeasAre you about to renovate your bedroom and looking for some modern ideas? Your bedroom is your ultimate place to relax and hence a little bit of nice décor would make it all the more inviting. The modern bedroom décor arena has come up with a wide variety of styles and here goes 5 modern bedroom ideas currently trending with the architects.

Classic style

The classic bedroom style would be great for those looking for minimalist décor without compromising on the style quotient. You can use either white or blue here that would prevail for everything in the room, right from walls to bed linen to the nightstand. If you think all-white would be dull, get a little bit of beige for the walls. Personally, I like the all white look. It is trendy to me.

Rustic style

The rustic style reflects your inner wild careless beauty. Use brown as the accent shade throughout the room with a beige background. Throw in a Welsh blanket and deck up the walls with your antique treasures. Make sure to use dark hardwood furniture with intricate patterns in the room.

Romantic style

A romantic bedroom is never complete without a generous share of pink in the room, creating a dreamy ambience. Get golden for the furnishing- you must get a luxuriously embellished bed with a gorgeous neat chandelier hanging over it.

Nautical style

A nautical style bedroom oozes a unique beach style feeling throughout. Use blue, green and white generously throughout the room. Get cane furniture and deck up the walls with sea-side knick knacks such as a shell bordered mirror.

Royal style

A royal bedroom features a plush set-up. Get an intricately patterned large bed with canopy. Velvet curtain look perfect for a royal backdrop and so a rich Persian rug on the floor. Install chandelier on top of the ceiling and satin bed linens for a true majestic feel.
