      Why A Good Ironing Cover Matters

      Why A Good Ironing Cover Matters

      Why A Good Ironing Cover Matters

      Trying to skimp on the quality of your ironing board cover?

      Here are some reasons why investing in a good ironing board cover matters:

      1) A good ironing board cover supports the transfer of heat & steam

      LEIFHEIT Heat Reflect Ironing Board Cover


      Regardless of technique or strength, the key ingredient for ironing to remove wrinkles is heat (and steam). If there’s an inadequate transfer of steam and heat from the iron to your clothing, the wrinkles won’t disappear & it would have ended up as a waste of your energy and time.

      The right ironing board cover allows for the easy transfer of heat and steam from the iron into your clothing, smoothening out those pesky wrinkles fast.


      2) A good ironing board cover is fitting and secure

      A well-fitted ironing board cover fits snugly on your ironing board as it should not crinkle up or shift around when ironing clothes on it, allowing  the transfer of heat and steam to occur properly and improves the efficacy of ironing your clothing on it - resulting in straightened and smoothened clothes! Sometimes, these ironing board covers can come with an elastic drawstring or a tension clip that ensure that they sits tightly and firmly on the ironing board just like the Thermo Reflect featured above.


      3) A good ironing board cover is one that suits your lifestyle & ironing habits

      LEIFHEIT Cotton Classic Ironing Board Cover


      As fashion moves along with times, our wardrobes might likely have expanded with a variety of clothing that comes in all different materials & fabrics. Just as how there are different ways in caring for the various materials of clothing, there are different ironing board covers made with varying functions to suit specific types of clothing and ironing habits.

      Some fabrics allow for faster ironing and prevent scorching or damaging clothing fabrics when compared to others. A smoother ironing board cover is generally better because heat and steam transfer easier through a smoother surface than a coarse one.

      Some are better or worse than others at keeping your clothes from moving around too much on the board, and that obviously has an effect on how much you can get the wrinkles out.

      Regardless of whether you are ironing your go-to cotton t-shirt or your favourite silk dress, we have an ironing board cover that will meet your every ironing need! Get yours today!:

      Benefits of Ironing Your Clothes

      Benefits of Ironing Your Clothes

      Have you ever stood infront of the ironing board thinking to yourself if this t-shirt or dress really needs to be ironed? Especially with an ever-growing ironing pile, it's easy to feel defeated or unmotivated to keep ironing. Despite ironing being one of the household chores most people shun away from, there are actually a host of benefits to this chore & can potentially be motivating factors to make ironing a part of your lifestyle too!



      1. Clothes look better for longer

      Steam ironing garments help fabric fibres soften and return to their original state improving their quality and ensuring their longevity. Some fabrics stretch out as you wear them, changing the original form of the garment. By ironing your shirts, dresses & even jeans, your garments will maintain its shape and look like new for longer.


      1. Steam kills germs & eliminate moulds

      A steam iron heats up to 212 degrees Celsius in order to generate steam, and at this temperature, the steam kills bacteria, germs, mould, and even dust mites. Steam ironing also replaces the need to use toxic chemicals in order to sanitise your clothes. If you are a pet owner, you can also run your steam iron over surfaces to restore the freshness!



      1. Steam ironing removes odours

      Do you know that one of the causes of body odour is due to the occurrence of a natural by-product of bacteria living in our clothes? By ironing your clothes, bacteria are killed and the odour dissipates. Sports gear and polyester fabrics can sometimes also trap the stench of sweat but there's nothing a good steam cannot fix, leaving your clothes super fresh and hygienic!



      1. Safer than dry cleaning

      Dry cleaners use harmful chemicals that you avoid by doing your laundry and ironing at home. Most dry cleaners use a chemical called perchloroethylene and other chemicals like it to treat garments. These toxic chemicals are harmful to our health as they stick to your clothing and can be inhaled or absorbed by the skin too.



      1. Ironing helps reverse shrinkage

      Steam ironing helps with relaxing and flattening the fibers of your woven fabrics which can restore the natural shape of the garments that might have tightened up during the washing or drying cycle. This can sometimes make the difference between clothing feeling too tight or just right.



      1. Improved first impressions & image
      Dressing well and having crease-free clothing shows that you take pride in yourself. It follows that people who take pride in themselves take pride in other areas of their lives too. First impressions last, and just like you will observe what you do and do not like, so will your date or your future employer. Don't allow the wrinkled appearance of your clothing to distract them from the good stuff!

      If you still need some convincing, start somewhere & start small. Choose your battles wisely. Thanks to modern textiles, there are iron-free fabrics which can help to reduce the number of garments you have to iron & also to save you the time taken to complete this chore.

      With the many positives that comes with ironing or steam ironing your clothes, maybe it might not be too difficult to incorporate it as part of your lifestyle! Let Leifheit give you a hand in your ironing journey through our selection of ironing board covers by checking out our website:

      How to prevent backaches when doing chores?

      Simple household tasks can turn into trouble for people with persistent back pain. But following a few general rules can help minimize the risk of injury and keep your back healthy.

      Here are 5 tips on how to protect your back when doing household chores:

      1) Posture when lifting
      -Poor posture when lifting heavy objects or poor lifting technique can cause back pain or back injuries. The natural tendency to round your back when bending over to pick things up is a motion that can put your hips at an awkward angle that places stress on the ligaments around your spine. Keeping your shoulders stable, engaging your pelvis & bending your knees when lifting ensure that you don’t overextend your back, preventing stress & injuries to your back.

      2) Change your position
      -Being in the same position, be it sitting or standing, for an extended period is tiring and can also cause muscle aches or strains. When standing for long periods of time, such as cooking or cleaning, try widening your stance or alternating your position to avoid repeated stress on the same muscles.

      3) Strengthen your core muscles
      -Exercises like planks, pelvic tilts and crunches can help to strengthen lower back & abdominal core muscles. These groups of muscles are often engaged when you are doing your chores.

      4) Stand proud when vacuuming, sweeping or mopping
      -Avoid bending and pushing while vacuuming. Instead, stand upright with your chest pushed out slightly, think military style, and use your legs rather than your back to move forward and backward.

      5) Choose the right tools
      -Tools are invented to make our lives easier but if they make chores even more frustrating & time-consuming, then they might not be the right tools for you! Select tools that are lightweight, portable, and easy to manoeuvre - Leifheit’s Regulus Aqua PowerVac 2-in-1 is a great example of such a cleaning tool! This cleaning tool is capable of both vacuuming & wiping the floor simultaneously which saves you time & effort especially from the physical work of filling a bucket full of water, lugging it around & throwing away the dirty water after use. It also comes with wheels for easy manoeuvrability and is fully battery operated which allows you to cover greater spaces without having to find an alternative power source as compared to a vacuum that comes with a cable.

      Investing in the right tools for the right chores would make a whole world of difference to how you feel about chores each time you do them!

      What Your Chinese Zodiac Sign Says About Your Spring Cleaning Style

      What Your Chinese Zodiac Sign Says About Your Spring Cleaning Style

      It’s that time of year again—when we quickly swap Christmas for Chinese New Year decor. As you prepare for Spring Cleaning, you start thinking about what your cleaning style says about you as a person. Are you a list-maker? A spazz? Or do you keep everything organized and neat? If you don’t know what your Chinese Zodiac Sign says about your personality yet, or if you’re not sure what to do with all of this information, worry not! Let our Chinese Zodiac cleanliness guide help you out.

      1. Rat – The Most Resourceful Sign


      Years: 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020, 2032

      Rats have no issues keeping their homes clean! Why? They’re always looking for ways to improve and are easily able to see things through a different perspective. Keep your spring cleaning fresh and exciting by trying out new cleaning products, methods, or recipes. Rats will never run out of great ideas because they’re always looking at their current situation with a critical eye - everything can be better, right?

      2. Ox – The Most Determined Sign


      Years: 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021, 2033

      You are no slacker. You set a goal and stick to it until its completion. And when it comes to cleaning, nothing gets in your way! Well, almost nothing. You're a little bit of a perfectionist and that can make things take longer than necessary (that closet just HAS to be organized). 

      However, once everything is cleaned to your liking, you can relax knowing that it was done right—and there’s no one better at taking care of those hard-to-reach places like ceiling fans or light fixtures than you! Don’t forget to treat yourself once you have done all the hard work!

      3. Tiger – The Competitive Sign


      Years: 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022, 2034

      It is your year! You live for a challenge and truly shine when you’re given an opportunity to compete. You can be incredibly productive during spring cleaning—you enjoy completing tasks that fall within your skill set and even seek out projects that push you outside of your comfort zone. 

      Even if they prove challenging at first, over time, these hard-to-do jobs become easier for you! This year, you can stay organized by using removable stickers to label everything!

      4. Rabbit – The Responsible Sign


      Years: 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023, 2035

      You take on many roles and are a highly competent multi-tasker. You tend to be a perfectionist, with high standards and often feel stressed if you don’t have enough time or resources to complete all of your tasks. You can be a little hard on yourself if you find that you do not live up to your own expectations, but you usually bounce back easily! 

      When it comes to spring cleaning though, leave enough time for yourself so that you don’t work too hard. Give yourself frequent breaks during which you can de-stress by soaking in a warm bath with relaxing oils like lavender or eucalyptus. Arrange your day so that it is less stressful.

      5. Dragon – The Most Enthusiastic Sign


      Years: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024, 2036

      Dragons will get right to it. There’s no time for anything else! A home should be clean, comfortable and airy—and when it comes to cleaning, there’s no need to overcomplicate things. 

      Dragon energy will be directed at creating an efficient and organized cleaning plan so you can have more time for relaxation. Since a messy room is distracting, simply make sure all of your belongings are in place before you start. Once you have a system, stick with it. As long as everything is under control, there’s nothing standing in your way!

      6. Snake – The Idealist


      Years: 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025, 2037

      You're a dreamer, an optimist and an idealist. You're happiest when you feel on top of things and your home is no exception. You aren't afraid to take risks, but you do need structure. The best thing for you is to find a space with lots of storage where you can tuck things away as soon as they've been used so they don't get in your way—but still have them at hand should you need them again. 

      Having everything tucked away neatly makes it easier for you to keep your home neat and orderly; in fact, cleanliness is one of your greatest loves!

      7. Horse – The Most Energetic Sign


      Years: 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026, 2038

      When spring arrives, there’s no better time to put your energy to work cleaning up. But if you’re a Horse, it will be hard for you to keep yourself from running off and exploring; most Horses crave spontaneity. Still, with a little planning, you can turn your spring cleaning into an adventure. 

      Try taking on a section of your home each day as an individual project—you might start with a closet or dresser drawers on Monday, move onto bathroom surfaces on Tuesday, and so forth. If that doesn’t help enough (and for some Horses it won’t), try making it a game by inviting friends or relatives over!

      8. Goat – The Most Calm Sign


      Years: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027, 2039

      You’re a cautious person by nature, which means you tend to stay away from anything that will lead to unnecessary stress or unneeded hassle. Because of your go with the flow attitude, your spring cleaning practice is simple and relaxed – it fits you perfectly! 

      So don’t change a thing when it comes to your style! Just keep on doing what makes you happy.

      9. Monkey – The Smartest Sign


      Years: 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028, 2040

      You’re meticulous and hyper organized, but can get a little frustrated if others are not up to your standards. You know everything has its place. This might lead you to resent other people who don’t have their act together! 

      Try planning a day off each week where no one can bother you.  Or enjoy a nice bath with some relaxing music. Once you feel more relaxed, you’ll be able to better balance orderliness with fun. 

      10. Rooster – The Most Hardworking Sign


      Years: 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029, 2041

      The Rooster is someone who will get down to business at a moment's notice, especially if you need them to clean up a messy room. The Rooster gets an adrenaline rush from organizing and cleaning; it makes them feel alive. 

      They love when everything has its place and are known for keeping their homes in immaculate condition. You don’t mess with a Rooster while they’re cleaning! If you see them getting crazy while they clean their space, they could get aggressive over their possessions. Don’t take any chances because Roosters are known for having quick tempers! 

      11. Dog – The Honest Sign


      Years: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030, 2042

      Dog people will appreciate a minimal, clutter-free space. A clean home is more than just a physical space; it’s a mental blank slate where they can focus on their work or hobbies without distraction. Dog people crave simplicity, even if they aren’t always naturally inclined to achieve it. 

      If clutter bugs you (like it does me!), give yourself permission to purge when spring cleaning. Every year in early spring I dig through closets and drawers looking for anything that doesn’t bring me joy or spark my imagination—it’s a great way to declutter with intention!

      12. Pig – The Most Diligent Sign


      Years: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031, 2043

      A Pig's spring cleaning style reflects their hardworking nature and natural ability to excel at anything they take on. Their attention to detail is what helps them accomplish so much while also keeping their house in order. Pigs love to be home and comfortable. 

      This might not seem like a sign that would care much about a clean home, but they actually do - because it makes them feel happy and productive when their home is in order! Their sign goes hand-in-hand with a relaxing spa day where they have time to take care of themselves!

      Before you get to it, here are the auspicious days to do your spring cleaning:

      • 17th January 2022 (Monday)
      • 20th January 2022 (Thursday)
