Spring Cleaning? Expert Tips on Refreshing Your Home

|
Spring is the season to refresh and update our homes. At Peacock Alley, we are often asked for ways to spruce up our spaces and make our daily chores a little easier. If you are spring cleaning, here are a couple of tricks we have learned from more than 47 years of experience.

 

Tip 01

Follow the Rule of Three; one in the wash, one on the shelves and one in use. We recommend keeping 3 sets on hand  - whether they are sheets, towels, blankets or duvets, this tip will make your load lighter and laundry day a breeze.

Tip 02

Thirsty Towels are the best towels! Maximize your towels' absorbency and keep them their fluffiest with this simple hack: Add 1 cup of distilled white vinegar directly into the wash with your favorite detergent. This is especially effective the first time you launder new towels, and a great way to refresh towels any time. 

Tip 03

Smooth and soft. Keep the wrinkles at bay by laundering your fitted sheets separate from the rest. This keeps the other linens from ending up in a wrinkled ball in the fitted corners. Try this tip and see the difference.

Tip 04

Ironing your sheets really does make a difference. Once you've slept on pressed linens you will understand the luxury, especially when it comes to percale cotton. So, this Spring treat yourself to professionally ironed sheets (our founder, Mary Ella swears by this!) or at the very least, press your cases and the top cuff of the flat sheet. It's truly heavenly.

Tip 05

Refresh your layers, refresh your look. Spring is the ideal time to lighten up and change the layers of your bed. Switch out your coverlets or pull back the duvet to the bottom of the bed. Change out a pattern or even a color and give your bedding and your room, an entirely new look.
