Ever since the invention of washing machines, people can now do simultaneous cleaning of laundry with as little time. Washing machines have improved and reinvented itself through time.

A washer or washing machine is intended to clean the laundry such as sheets, towels, and clothing. The term washing machine is usually applied to those that only use water as the main cleaning solution other than dry cleaning. Dry cleaning, on the other hand, uses a lot of substitute cleaning fluids and is only performed by business specialists or ultrasonic cleaners.

All washing machines work by means of thermal energy, chemical reaction and mechanical energy. The mechanical energy is passed on to the load of the clothes via the agitators rotation in the top loader or through the plummeting action of the drum in front loaders. The wash baths temperature supplies the machines thermal energy.

The main key for washing machine maintenance is to take good care of it. You need some basic carpentry tools, baking soda and distilled white vinegar.

The first step is to inspect the fittings and hoses. Ensure that the hoses are not blistered or cracked. You must also ensure that the fittings are in excellent condition and are not corroded. The water must not be dripping in the fittings. It is best to replace the fittings and hoses once every three years as part of washing machine maintenance even if there are no problems. It is just a safety precaution so as to avoid all the future problems and hassles.

The next step is leveling. Use the leveling tool to adjust the feet of the machine until the fizz indicates that it is balanced. Washing machines that bashes around every time require leveling before it smashes down.

Keep the washing machine clean and spotless in the outside. Usually, bleaches and soaps will not do any damage in the machines exterior but other chemicals like stain removers might have adverse effects.

Always remember to clean the tub at least once every three months. All you have to do is set the machine to hot or it there is an extra setting built for very dirty clothes, set it. Fill the tub with water and add approximately three cups of distilled vinegar. After that, add half a cup of baking soda. Advance the cycle in order to spin when the tub starts to drain. Set the washing machine to cold if the cycle has ended and run one more cycle.

Another step is to wash the machine dispensers. If the dispensers are removable, take it out and immerse them in hot water. Clean the gunk that collects the dirt around the dispensers. Also, clean the machine top as well as the tub. If the dispensers are non-removable, just pour hot water into them until they are clean.

Always use lesser fabric softener and detergent. Some clothes have a reaction to strong detergents and fabric softeners. Sometimes, these cleaning agents can ruin your clothes so always make sure to read the tags before placing it in the washing machine. The clothes will be clean enough when you use half of the recommended amount of detergent. Dilute the fabric softener with water or use vinegar. As a rule, liquid detergents are way better than powdered detergents.

The last advice would be to get a service call. Make service calls as a routine habit as part of washing machine maintenance. The machine life may be extended if the service person is able to remove the cover and clean it from the inside. Never try to remove the front panel of a front loader washing machine.

Start early by shopping seven to nine months before the wedding. Some manufacturers take at least five months to make a gown and another two for the alterations.

Come up with a schedule of store visits. Call up boutiques ahead of time to find out the price ranges of their gowns and ask for an appointment. In this way, you can work out a plan where to go to first and not be rushed. Try at least 5-7 gowns in each bridal boutique. Have a notebook with you and write down descriptions of the dresses so you can remember what the dresses look like.

Be open-minded. A gown always looks different on a model or on a hanger. You may not like a style of a particular gown, but you will be amazed that it will completely transform you once you have it on.

You should make the most of each fitting. In adjusting the gown to your size, it will usually take two or three fittings. Try sitting, hugging and dancing in your wedding dress. Try waving you arms to make sure the sleeves are not binding.

Examine the dress meticulously to make sure the quality is worth the price tag. Do not be afraid to ask what materials the gown is made of. A great tip to know if the dress is made well is to look inside. You should examine the seams and stitches and determine if the sewing looks solid and professional.

The best advice probably is to be realistic and confident. It is important you accept who you are. Learn to highlight your assets and be confident about it. Choose a gown that best compliments your body shape. Whether you are pear-shaped or petite, wearing the right cut for your body type will accentuate your best features.

Keep in mind that finding the perfect dress takes effort, patience and a lot of research. Give yourself enough time and surely when its finally your moment to walk down that aisle, you will be a vision of beauty to all your friends and family especially your groom that will all be captured in your wedding videography.
