Ways to Tie a Scarf

Normally thrown around your neck in a casual fashion, a scarf can be so much more. Discover our simple tying techniques, then get creative on your own.  I found this article at the Homemadesimple website which I could resist sharing:
  1. Classic Wrap-Around : Place the middle of the scarf around the front of your neck, then pull the two ends around opposite sides to the front.
  1. Layered Knot : Place the scarf around the front of your neck so the ends hang in back. Pull the ends around to the front, and loosen the tightened neck section. Tie the dangling ends together and then pull the loosened neck section around the front of the knot.
  1. Double Loop : Start with the middle of the scarf on the back of your neck. Loop the ends of the scarf around and back to the front. Tie the two ends together.

 

 

  1. Triple Knot : Twist the scarf to thin it out and place around the back of your neck. Tie a triple knot in front, then loosen the knot loops to fill it out.
  1. Braided : Fold the scarf in half, then place around the back of your neck. Pull one of the loose ends through the loop on the other side, twist to make another loop, then thread the other loose end through.
  1. Rolled Coil : Place the scarf around the front of your neck so the ends hang in back. Pull the ends around to the front and tie them. Wrap and tuck the loose ends around to hide them.

Tips for Keeping Your Jeans from Fading

What do you do to keep your jeans from fading?  Back in the ‘80s, it was the style to have faded jeans but today, it’s all about the dark jeans.  I’ve been told the following help with the situation:

  1. NEVER wash your jeans.  Have you heard that?  I’m sorry but I just wouldn’t be able to do it.  I would always be paranoid that I smelled.  With respect to not washing, I heard people use Febreeze to freshen up the jeans.
  2. Wash jeans inside out in cold.  This is what I do.  I think it helps but I don’t think it solves the problem, just prolongs the fading a bit.
  3. Dry cleaning is another solution.  I’m not too keen on having all those chemicals used all the time on my clothes and more importantly, that can become very costly.
  4. Another thing that I do to help is to hang my jeans to dry.  Never, never put them in the dryer.  It is said that you’re almost guaranteed to have your jeans fade a shade when putting them into the dryer.
  5. An old home ready is to put vinegar in your washing machine with the jeans and wash on delicate with detergent designed to be used with dark clothes.  This is my plan to try next.
  6. A wives tail I’ve heard is putting salt in the washing machine with your load of jeans. I’m somewhat surprised by this as I’d think the salt with actually fade the clothing.
  7. Another one that I heard and I kind of find hard to believe it washing your jeans with beer….?

I’d love to hear what you do to prevent your jeans from fading!
