CARING FOR CASHMERE

SALAD SPINNERS AND CASHMERE?cashmere saladspinner

JUST SPIN IT!

You thought cashmere was DRY CLEAN ONLY?  Cashmere is washable!  But cashmere garments are delicate and should NOT  be twisted or wrung dry when soaking wet.  A salad spinner will gently remove access water without twisting or pulling potentially harming the garment.  Lay the cashmere garment flat on a drying rack or sweater drier and allow to air dry completely.

IKEA BAG HACK FOR THE GARDEN

I love using Ikea bags to organize wardrobe for productions (seen in Organizing Wardrobe and Props and Wardrobe).  I also re-purpose Ikea bags in my garden during winter months.  As a lover of clever re-invention, I decided to submit my extremely simple Ikea bag hack to IkeaHacker.net.

STYLIST TIPS FOR STATIC CLING

Image

STATIC CLING IS NOT CUTE

Dry winter weather creates the perfect conditions for static cling. I always keep Static Guard in my wardrobe kit to keep static cling under control when I am on set.  It’s quick and easy to spray on clinging garments.  If you are on a production,  it’s best to spray before talent goes on set.  If you must spray on set,  be aware of the camera!   Do not spray Static Guard toward the lens.

Flying to a quickie out-of-town production,  I cannot carry aerosol products on the plane.  I  pack dryer sheets instead of Static Guard for a quick static cling fix.  Once dressed, simply rub dryer sheets on the outside and the inside of your garment to remove static cling!

Dryer sheets also keep my wardrobe kit smelling  fresh – BONUS!

Does your hair get static electricity?  Use dryer sheets to neutralize the electric charge in your hair.  Gently rub a dryer sheet over your hair in the same direction your hair is styled.

Traditional dryer sheets are full of chemicals and considered toxic.  Seventh Generation and Meyers both offer a non-toxic biodegradable product.

No dryer sheets on hand?   Use a metal clothes hanger to discharge the electricity.  Simply glide the long side of a wire or metal hanger over your clothes to remove static electricity. Kinda clever!
