Pillow covers can be safely dry-cleaned or machine-washed.
- Turn pillow covers inside out before washing to prevent snags.
- Machine-wash polyester in warm water, using an all-purpose detergent. Use a chlorine bleach if necessary. Fabric softener will reduce static electricity.
- White polyester fabric will look even whiter if you soak it overnight in a mixture of 1/2 cup automatic dishwashing detergent and 1 gallon warm water. Launder as usual, but add 1/2 cup vinegar to the final rinse.
- Tumble-dry at a low temperature setting. Do not overly dry polyester; this will cause gradual shrinkage.
- Press polyester fabrics at a moderate temperature setting, or use steam.
Pillows can be tossed into the washing machine. Wash two at a time to balance the load, and set machine on the gentle cycle; agitate only one to two minutes. Once detergent is totally rinsed out, tumble-dry on low, fluffing them often.
- Machine wash using cold water only. Cotton tote bags are highly prone to shrinking, so it's really important to avoid the use of warm or hot water. For that reason, you also shouldn't put tote bags in the dryer — even on a low-heat setting, they'll be likely to shrink.
- If, after drying, the bag is wrinkled or the straps aren't laying flat, a quick going over with an iron on the medium setting will do the trick.
- Finally, if the tote is dyed in any way, you'll want to be sure it's colorfast before you wash it; if it has embellishments, it should be hand washed only.
- Fill sink with hot water and dish soap.
- Place mouse pad in solution.
- Rub mouse pad surface lightly.
- Rinse mouse pad, make sure all soapy soap is out.
- Two drying methods, air dry (fast) or leave by window (slow)
- For best results, leave mousepad alone for 24 hours after cleaning.
Washing the mug by hand offers the safest long-term protection. Use a mild detergent and a soft cloth. Avoid abrasive cleaners and scourers as these can cause scratches to appear.
Always rinse mugs and cups immediately after use. A build-up of stain can be easily removed with a soak in a weak solution of bleach. Soaking in a mixture of salt and water often works.
Use warm water and dish soap and clean spots off your laptop sleeve. It is probably unnecessary to soak the whole thing but if most of the sleeve is dirty then soak the entire sleeve for 30 minutes. For hard to clean spots, use a soft-bristled brush. Use a wetsuit and dry shampoo for individual spots.
