Washing & Keeping your House Clean.

Posted in: Blog, Independence

Washing your clothes is almost as important as washing your skin. When we leave the house, we need clothes, so we want to make sure that these clothes are clean, washed and taken care of. So how do we know what the best washing powder to use is? When it comes to washing your clothes, powder and liquid detergents aren't that different. Liquid detergent is better at greasy stains, while powder detergent is better at getting mud out.


Choosing between using a drier and hanging your clothes on the line is a never-ending battle. The lazy half of us, will tend to throw the clothes in the drier, start the machine and walk away whereas the practical half, will take the time to hang the clothes on the line. Using a drier is great when we’re in a rush or its raining but mostly when we can’t be bothered to hang out our clothes. However, driers have an adverse effect on the environment, our wallets and our homes. Driers can be expensive and using a drier adds to our electricity bill especially if we're using it every time we wash our clothes. Also, dust and lint from driers stay in the air in our homes, where we breath it in. Like everything in life, the easy option isn’t always the best option.

• Some of the benefits of hanging out our clothes include
• Saves money on electricity
• Better for the environment
• Line drying helps to remove strong odour
• Gentle on clothes
Increases physical activity
• 10 minutes outside to enjoy the sun, breeze and smell of freshly washed clothes


A clean home or organised space is proven to reduce stress, improve happiness, and can even improve your eating and exercise habits. Reducing clutter helps to increase productivity at home and in the workplace and keeping your house clean and organised also ensures it is safe. Regular cleaning keeps your home free of dust and makes it a much better environment for you and your family, particularly anyone with allergies. If you don't clean, you can actually start to develop some serious allergies and breathing issues. Dust can cause symptoms such as congestion, cough, a runny nose and if ignored symptoms can become more serious, such as asthma.
