We’ve all done it – Throwing a load in the washing machine and forgetting about it for a while. Leaving clothes wet in the washer can multiply the amount of wrinkles on your garments which results in more time you need to spend ironing and steaming your clothes before you wear them.


To cut your ironing time in half, simply hang up your clothes to dry right when they come out of the wash. If you prefer putting your garments in the dryer remember to take these out as soon as they are done and fold or hang-up them up to keep them wrinkle-free. The quicker you do this, the less time wrinkles have to settle!

Following this tip will ultimately save you less time ironing and steaming. To remove those last minute wrinkles from your outfits, T-fal has the perfect range of irons to help you keep your clothes and linens look fresh and crisp before you use them.

An important tip to remember before you begin ironing is to ensure that you have the correct temperature setting depending on the type of fabric you are ironing. This can make the difference between perfectly pressed clothes and a giant burn whole in your favourite shirt! Having the right setting will make ironing faster, easier and give you perfect results that will make your clothes look brand new again.

Love it or loathe it, the fact of the matter is that the ironing has to get done. That’s why it falls under the bracket of ‘chores’. Quite simply because ironing can be tedious, time consuming and for many of us overwhelming, especially if you are ironing for more than one. As much as you may try to run, you most certainly cannot hide, from a pile which will no doubt grow day by day.

For the next 2 weeks we are going to release a simple #T-falIronTip that will make caring for your linens easier!  Follow us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook to stay up to date on the tips we release.

For now, check out our below guide to understand The Science of Ironing:



Now that the warm weather is finally on its way, it’s time to shake off the cold winter and get back to your healthy routine. Whether you’re trying to lose weight for the summer or just want to be a healthier, crash diets aren’t usually the best way to go about it. After all, you can only live without chocolate for so long before you find yourself sitting on the kitchen floor surrounded by the remnants of the a Kit Kat multipack with no idea how you got there.


The best way to healthy lifestyle resolutions is to make them as sustainable as possible. Fitting food into your routine and lifestyle, rather than the other way around, will help you change your habits and avoid those late night snack sessions that give you one hell of a sugar hangover. Here are some top-tips to keep: 

Choose the right sugars

If you have a sweet tooth, giving up your chocolate bars and treats is probably absolute torture. However, you don’t need to give up everything sweet in order to be healthier and can still enjoy a pudding or snack during the day.

Rather than a daily chocolate bar, try sweet fruit instead, as something like a clementine can help beat those sweet cravings while being healthier. Fat-free fruit yogurt, vanilla almond milk and even dark chocolate are good in moderation too and could leave you feeling more satisfied.

Treat yourself now and then

While finding substitutes works well, we all know there is nothing quite like the real thing. This is why it is okay to indulge every once in a while. Having a weekly or bi-weekly treat can help keep you on track and reward you for a job well done.

Not only does this help stop you from going a bit mad with the treats, it also means you don’t feel guilty when you do indulge in something a bit more unhealthy.

Be smart when it comes to carbs

We actually need some carbohydrates in our diet for energy, so cutting them out completely can be a bad idea. Not only can it mean your diet becomes unbalanced, it can cause issues when you reintroduce them to your diet.

Rather than cutting them out completely, switch to complex carbs only and half the amount you put on your plate. If you’re trying to lose weight, this will help you do so but will also give you plenty of energy.

To ensure you’re still filling up at dinner time, simply top up your plate with more vegetables, which will make your meal even healthier.

Choose healthy snacks

Whether you’re at a desk all day, running after kids or active at work, snacking tends to happen a bit more than it should. You can make your meals as healthy as possible, but if you’re reaching for the cookies, chips or pop, it undoes all your hard work.

This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t snack, as we all need a bit of a boost and no one enjoys feeling hungry. However, you need to be careful when it comes to what you snack on.

Clear out the unhealthy treats and get in fruit, vegetables and nuts so you can reach for these instead. Things like carrot sticks and hummus, bananas and almonds are all great for filling you up without all the extra calories and can make your diet a lot more bearable. Just make sure you’re drinking plenty of water too!

Stay active 

Going to the gym doesn’t always need to be the resolution to get your daily exercise. Now that the warm weather is here, there are plenty of other activities you can do that doesn’t make exercise seem like a chore. Go for a walk to the park, take a bike ride to the local store, go swimming at the nearby community center  – These are just a few ideas you can do to incorporate exercise into your daily routine.


A day off with your family is the perfect way to fight the winter blues! We’ve put together some fun, family friendly activities that will help you enjoy your time together and make the most out of this great holiday we have in Canada.

1. Get crafty 

Brainstorm a crafty project in your home that everyone can work on together. Pinterest can be a good place to start to get some inspiration. Some creative ideas we love are: painting a wall mural together somewhere in your home, making matching family bracelets with beads, or painting and decorating photo frames for your living room. The possibilities are endless and whatever you make will be a keep sake to remind you of the fun day you spent together.

2. Play outside

Pull out the warm winter gear and get outside for some fresh air. Whether you are building a snowman, playing capture the flag, or even just going for a walk to the park, the whole family will enjoy being outdoors together and appreciate the day off from work or school.

3. Cook or bake together

Everyone grab their chef hat and put their apron on. It’s time to teach your children a passed down family recipe or create a new one together. Try to choose a recipe that is usually too complicated or time consuming to make because today you have the time, and the help from everyone to make it happen! Together as a team you can tackle the recipe and get to enjoy it afterwards.

4. Board games 

For most families finding the time when everyone is free to just all relax together and play a few board games can be tough! Put out some snacks and set-up your favourite board games in the living room. You can even create a mini-marathon chart of what games you will play all day and keep score to make it a full day event.

5. Give back to the community

Take some time to tidy up and get rid of some old toys and clothes you don’t need anymore so you can donate it to your local charity. It’s a great opportunity to teach your kids the importance of giving back to the community and helping others in need.

6. Take a trip down memory lane

Pull out any old home videos or pictures you have stored up in the attic and share them with your kids. They will love hearing stories of you as a kid and seeing what both their parents looked like when they were younger.


However you decide to spend the day with your family, we know that the time spent together will bring everyone closer and remind us of how special and lucky we are to have family in our lives.

Happy Family Day!
