Dylon fabric dye – does it work? I answer your questions!

In the past if I had clothes that looked worn I would just throw them in the bin. Eventually. However, I want to waste less money and I hate clothes shopping. 

Since having my c-section I am really struggling with finding trousers that actually fit nicely, without hurting my stomach. I’ve got one pair of jeans that I absolutely love and they are really comfortable.

I’m able to work down the allotment in them and walk long distances without pain. They had seen better days though. Significantly better days. 

For a while I was wearing them faded and wasn’t really bothered. That is until I saw a photo of me wearing them. I knew then that I had to either find more jeans that I enjoy OR I had to give my favourite jeans a dye. I picked up this Dylon fabric dye and set to work.

Top tips for drying clothes in a flat

For around 9 years we lived in a little 1 bedroom flat. With a child too. We originally felt like we had lots of space, and made room for pets as well. We also had space to store all the items for our daughter but finally, when she was 3.5 we were able to move house. Into an actual house! Hence the update to this post that has been popular for a few years now. It worked out well for us, for the most part, living in a flat. There was hardly anything I dislike about living here, besides drying clothes in a flat and my neighbour banging all the time!

Obviously, it is easy enough to use a washing line in your garden, if you have one. It is also easy to use a tumble drier if you have room for one. We personally had room for a tumble dryer but I like to try and cut back on the electric bill where possible.

Review: Shark Steam Mop S6001UK (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted the featured item in exchange for coverage. This year, mostly thanks to the good people at AO, I have been well and truly converted to Shark products. I have two Shark vacuum cleaners, have gifted my Mum a Shark vacuum cleaner and now I have been gifted a Shark Steam Mop from AO. As I love a bit of cleaning (30 minutes a day most days!) I thought I’d tell you what I think after using this for a couple of weeks.

Review: Morphy Richards Saturn Steam 305000 2400W Iron (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted this item in exchange for coverage. Ironing… One single word that can emit a huge groan from most people. Whether you are a fan of ironed bedsheets and pants, or just using your iron for the bare minimum (weddings and school photos), it is inevitable that at some point you’re going to need to get the iron out. In our home, my husband does most of the ironing, which I’m really grateful for. Although this is mostly because he wears ironed clothes and I rarely mind if mine are ironed. The good people at AO recently sent me the Morphy Richards Saturn Steam (model number 30500) to review and I want to share my thoughts with you.
