Wholesale Clothes Shopping On Sundays

When you go out shopping and you want to find the best possible deals, it is worth spending a little extra time to find wholesale clothing. Wholesale clothes and wholesale clothing can be cheaper than not buying at wholesale. Wholesale clothes tend to be less expensive than non wholesale clothes. It is best to go clothes shopping at the beginning of the week or even on a Sunday, when a lot of stores get new inventory in.

Sunday, above other days, is a great day to go clothes shopping. So many people are out and about and not as many people go to work on Sunday, besides for the employees working in the stores themselves. It is fun to people watch and you can get some fresh air and stretch your legs when you go out shopping. Some people like to just window shop and others are serious shopaholics and cannot resist buying a new item. Little boutiques tend to be more expensive than bigger department stores and also do not necessarily have access to items at wholesale.

Clothes shopping is such a great pastime. I think it is just a lot of fun and relaxing. It can take your mind off of stressful things in your life and it is probably better than watching television, since you are getting some exercise and doing something out of your house. I wonder what people do who do not like clothes shopping. Do they just buy all of their clothes online? Or may they have a friend or family member go out and buy clothes for them.

A lot of name brands can be found at wholesale if you know where to shop in the mall. You can find brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Armani, and Benetton, just to name a few. There are also a lot of sales on Sundays in the mall. Some people can spend their whole day shopping, while others can only take it for about an hour or two. There are those people who can just go shopping by themselves and not even know that any time is passing, and there are others who need to go with someone else to have this same sort of feeling of time going by very fast.

If you do plan on going clothes shopping, I advise you to leave it for a Sunday, when you could possibly find more wholesale clothes and there may even be more sales then. Since the Super bowl is coming up, that may be a good time to go clothes shopping as there could be good sales and a lot of people will be home watching the Super bowl. Clothes shopping is not for everyone, and you really have to be in the right mood to want to go out and buy something new for your wardrobe. So think, it could be a fun and relaxing endeavor and you could find some wholesale clothing while you are out enjoying your favorite pastime!

Summer Clothing Storage Tips

When you get ready for the winter, one thing that you do is get out your winter clothing and pack away your summer clothing. This helps you keep your closet a bit less cluttered as your clothing that you aren’t going to be using can be put into another part of your home. There are things that you need to do in order to protect your summer clothing so that it will be in good condition the next time you are going to use it.

Don’t pack away your summer clothes too soon. Many people make the mistake of packing it all away then get hit with days here and there of warmer weather. Put it off until the cold is consistent.

Keep a few outfits unpacked in case of warmer weather. This will give you a few things that you can wear during the warmer days of the winter if they happen.

Go through your clothing before packing it away. This is the best time to take a look at what you have. What did you wear during the summer? What did you not wear? What can’t you fit into anymore? What can be donated away? What needs to be thrown away? Organize everything and get rid of what you don’t need at this time before storing it away.

Before you pack away your clothes, you need to wash everything. When you wash your clothes, do extra rinse cycles. You don’t want residual soap on your clothing when it’s stored for a few months during winter.

You need to buy sealed plastic containers to pack your clothing in. You might have used cardboard in the past, but this is a huge problem. Many pests like beetles, rodents, and closet moths will get into the openings of the cardboard boxes and ruin your clothing. Sealed containers help keep the smallest of pests out of your clothes protecting them. This one small time investment can be used for all your clothes storage for years.

How to Strip Cloth Diapers

Clean diapers should smell clean. If they don’t, it may be time to strip them. Stripping cloth diapers is sometimes necessary to remove buildup of detergent, oils, or minerals. If you are using a cloth diaper safe detergent and avoiding rash creams, you probably won’t need to strip you diapers more than every few months – if at all. If you are using a detergent that does not rinse clean or that does not work well in your water, you may need to strip your diapers as often as every month. Never, ever use fabric softener of any kind on cloth diapers. Not only do they contain toxic chemicals, they can ruin your diapers and make them stop absorbing.

When to Strip Cloth Diapers – If your cloth diapers are repelling (losing absorbency) or are smelling bad even when clean or freshly wet on, they likely need to be stripped.

Detergent Buildup – The most common reason for needing to stripping cloth diapers is detergent buildup. You’ll know there is detergent buildup if your cloth diapers smell funky when they come out of the dryer or if they smell really bad (lime ammonia) when your child wets on them. Pee always has some smell to it, but if a freshly wet diaper burns your nose or a morning diaper smells extra strong, it is time to remove all the detergent buildup.

Some detergents leave residue behind, causing buildup on the fabric. Another common cause is using too much detergent for your water. In most cases you should use 1/4-1/2 the recommended amount of detergent. You’ll need more detergent if you have hard water, less in soft water.

To strip detergent buildup, fill the washer with the hottest water you can and your clean diapers. You might even want to turn your hot water heater up a bit for this, but be sure to turn it back down immediately to reduce the risk of burns (safety experts recommend keeping your hot water heater set to no more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid potential disasters if small children turn the water on themselves). Then, agitate the load on the highest setting for a full cycle. Now, rinse in warm and check to see if there bubbles when the load agitates. If you see suds, there is a detergent buildup. At the end of the cycle, spin the water out and repeat until there are no more suds. This may take 3-4 washes if you have a lot of buildup. You can also add a commercial water softener to the first wash to help remove buildup (Calgon makes a readily available water softener).

If the buildup is caused by minerals, diaper rash cream, or fabric softener you may need to follow the more extensive instructions on my web site.
