You never wear an apron while cooking.
做饭时从来不穿围裙

 

Stained clothing is never a good look, but that's just what you'll get if you never wear an apron in the kitchen. Though it seems old fashioned, wearing an apron will protect your precious wardrobe from being massacred by stray drops of oil or smears of sauce.

染上污点的衣服肯定不好看,但如果你在厨房里不穿围裙,你的衣服就很容易沾上脏东西。尽管穿围裙看起来很守旧,但是可以保护你珍爱的衣服不被油污或酱汁毁掉。

massacre['mæsəkɚ]: v. 屠杀;彻底击败;彻底破坏

 

You hang your sweaters up in the closet.
用衣架将毛衣挂在衣柜里

 

Hanging your sweaters up like you would a regular shirt can actually damage them over time. That's because sweaters are usually made of heavy material and can stretch out under their own weight if placed on a hanger.

像挂普通衬衫一样把毛衣挂起来,时间久了就会给毛衣造成实质伤害。这是因为毛衣通常是由比较厚重的材料制成的,如果挂在衣架上,本身重量会造成毛衣拉伸变形。

To avoid bumps in your sweaters' shoulders and saggy necklines, try this hanging trick, courtesy of Snapguide: fold your sweater in half lengthwise, so that the arms match up over each other. Next, place a hanger with the metal hook in the "armpit" of the folded sweater. Then, simply fold the torso of the sweater over one side of the hanger and then fold the sleeves over the other side. You can now hang your sweaters without worrying about stretching them.

为了避免毛衣肩部突起,或颈部下垂,可以试试Snapguide网站介绍的这个挂衣服的技巧:将毛衣对半折,让两个袖子相叠。然后用金属钩的衣架放在对折的毛衣腋窝处。让衣身垂到衣架的一侧,让袖子垂到衣架的另一侧。现在你可以放心地将毛衣挂起来,不用担心衣服被拉伸。

 

You wipe stains instead of blotting.
擦掉污渍而不是吸掉污渍

 

The next time you spill something on yourself, don't just start swiping at the offending spot. As Better Homes & Gardens suggested, blotting at stains is actually the best way to avoid permanent discoloration. This is because rubbing actually works the substance into fabric fibers and may even create enough heat to chemically bond the stain to the fabric.

下一次你将东西泼到衣服上,不要急着把污点抹去。据Better Homes & Gardens网站介绍,吸走污渍是去除污渍的最佳方式。这是因为摩擦会让污渍深入面料纤维,可能甚至会产生足够的热量将污渍固定在面料上。

Instead of wiping, immediately and gently blot around the outside of the stain, working towards the center. If possible, use cool water to dab at the stain and be sure to get the item into the laundry or to a dry cleaner as soon as possible.

你不但不能擦,而且应该立刻用温和的方法从外围向中心一点点吸走污渍。如果可能的话,用冷水在污渍处轻拍,然后一定要尽快将衣服拿去清洗或送去干洗店。
