Creating warm & cozy spots at home

I don’t think anyone will argue with me when I say nothing keeps you warm like wool.

If you live in a city that experiences a true winter with snow pouring down for days and never seems to melt till March, you think about fabrics that keep you warm all the time.

This winter I decided to purchase the plush blankets or faux furs that are very soft and come in many beautiful colors. To creat warm cozy places I covered most of our sitting places with them.

I still have our wool blankets, we need to stay warm, but fury and soft can be very comforting too.🌞 Wishing everyone a cozy winter❄️

Cure your dry skin

We put a list of easy, healthy ways to get our skin looking and feeling healthy again.

Baking Soda
Soaking in a bath of baking soda for 30-60 minutes can make all the difference. Add one cup baking soda to a tub of warm water. For more localized itching you can make a paste of 1 part water to 3 parts baking soda.

Oatmeal
You can make an oatmeal bath at home. Use a food processor to chop oatmeal into a fine powder, then put it into warm water. Make sure after your bath you also moisturize your skin to lock in the barrier.

Vinegar
Dot vinegar on the spot with a cotton ball. If you’re itching all over and dryness, add two or three cups of vinegar to your bath water and soak for 15 to 30 minutes.

Milk
Pour some milk into a bowl, dip a clean white washcloth into the milk and place it to the dry itchy skin patch for 5 minutes. Milk is very soothing to inflamed, dry, itchy skin. A milk bath once in a month can also help.

Honey
Honey tightens, softens and moisturizes dry skin. tapping the area lightly with your fingertips for about 2 minutes. Rinse well with warm water, and use moisturizer afterward.

Natural Oils
For extremely dry skin it is better to use an oil-based moisturizer, like baby oil.
Avocado, jojoba and almond, also help keep dry skin hydrated. For best results, use it oil immediately after bathing. Pat your skin dry with a towel.

Cool showers or baths or even ice packs can give you an instant remedy for itchy skin.
Wear cotton or silk under your wool sweaters.

Use a humidifier to add moisture to the air.

For potassium
Eat more potatoes and bananas

Caring for Cashmere & Wool sweaters

Cashmere sweaters
Cashmere sweaters

Wash wool or cashmere by hand in Luke warm water, and never expose them to direct heat.

Fill a tub with lukewarm water and a few drops of mild detergent, dishwashing liquid will work. Immerse the sweater, and swish gently, Soak for 10 minutes.

Never wring or stretch wool when wet. it can be pulled out of shape dry flat .
Cashmere can be washed safely in a lingerie bag in gentle cycle, but they’ll last longer if washed by hand. Again flat dry.
After squeezing out water, lay the sweater on a white towel. Roll the towel with the sweater together to remove moisture, squeezing and pressing as you roll.

To get rid off sweater pills,
Remove the little balls, one pill at a time, using a small pair of scissors or a razor blade. There really isn’t any easier way. But your sweaters will look as good as new.
