No-Iron Men’s Shirts

No-Iron Men’s Shirts

Some guys love them. Others hate them. Say that they are “hair shirts” and too stiff. But no-iron men’s shirts do look good. Can’t deny that.

If you are a purist, these just may not be for you. Having debuted in 1953 by Brooks Borthers, the no-iron concept is certainly not new. DuPont has worked with retailers to create the non-iron formula which has not changed much over the years. Today, however, many no-iron shirts are all-cotton while the first ones were a dacron-cotton blend.

The chemical process that creates the non-iron product comes from a chemical treatment with formaldehyde that bonds fabric strands to create a stiffer fabric. But the process also leads to baggy elbows and fabric that tends to become stiffer over time.

Even with all that being true and not sounding very environmentally friendly, everyone wants to look good. It is difficult to appear fresh and nicely groomed if your shirt is all crumpled up. Having a freshly-pressed appearance right out of the closet is a huge advantage.

Another great benefit of the no-iron men’s shirts is the considerable savings in laundering, pressing and steaming services of maintaining your wardrobe. No hauling of a big bag of laundry to the cleaners every week either or having to go pick them up.

Today, non-iron shirts come in a variety of fits and styles to meet anyone’s preferences. Whether you want spread collar, tapered fit, extra long tails, or triple-stripe, there is a shirt that will fit the bill.

Non-iron shirts also maintain their shape throughout the work day. For travel, they are super great. Some manufacturers also include a stretchy polyester spandes fabric that means you can crumple your shirt into a ball and still put on a shirt that looks freshly laundered.

New “wrinkle-resistant” formulas are being tried all the time to stiffen fabric. One formula includes a naturally extra long cotton fiber that tends to be wrinkle-free.

Craft Tables

Craft tables come in many styles and configurations. You may need to have a dual purpose crafting table that can be incorporated into a space as a piece of furniture or one that can have dedicated space. There are also craft station especially for children, too.

You also have a choice when it comes to the complexity of your crafting station. Large ones can cost well over $1,000 when more modest selections start at less than $100.

Many tables will have accessories for holding pens, pencils, brushes or other tools. The selection of craft tables shown here are geared more toward studio work than for crafts such as sewing or other work with textiles but a few could be used for both. The glass-topped tables would be particularly useful for stencil or film cutting. The glass-topped varieties can easily be transformed into a light table by attaching some small LED lights to the lower part of the frame.

Whether you are an art student, drafting professional or home crafter, the selection of crafting tables will give you a start.

Dining Room Chair Seat Covers

When shopping for dining room chair seat covers, you will probably want them to be washable and durable. Even with that, there are lots of ways to go about protecting your dining room chairs from sloppy guys to messy toddlers.

The minimal approach is simply ScotchGuarding new chairs. If the fabric is new, this actually works pretty well. Just keep spills cleaned up quickly before they have a chance to soak in.

The next step up is clear plastic covers. These can be put on before dinner and removed after for a better look but they certainly are effective. Next up is the microsuede dining room chair seat cover. From my experience, microsuede is virtually indestructible and nothing sticks to it. It’s a pretty good choice and looks nice. The ultimate is the full chair cover which adds a dramatic flair to your dining room while adding a good level of protection to your chair seats.

The full chair cover is an excellent choice for a long-term solution. The full chair cover changes the whole look of your dining area. A neutral color is always good but a brighter color will give your dining area new life.

Here are a few options to get your thought processes going on which dining room seat covers to choose.

Corner Cabinet for Bathroom

Corner cabinets are awesome because they take up almost no space but double or triple storage area in any room including a bathroom. And because the cabinet sits in a corner, it never interferes with traffic flow in the room.

Stock your corner cabinet with extra towels, shampoo and other bathroom supplies to keep them handy.

When purchasing a cabinet regardless of the style, wiggle the cabinet to test its construction. The cabinet should hold up well to gentle pressure. Think carefully about whether you want glass or plexiglass doors in a cabinet in the bathroom. A slip and a bump on wet tile can easily turn into a glass disaster, cut feet and even cut arms. Plexiglass is safer if transparent doors on the cabinet are even necessary.

Open shelves can attractively store bath or hand towels, extra little soaps or a basket of various shampoos and conditioners and keep them very available for guests.

A cabinet on tall legs makes it easy to mop under the cabinet when necessary. Tall legs also have an airy feel which in a small space can be quite important.

See if one of these cabinets fits your needs perfectly.

Shot Glass Display

Collecting shot glasses is fun. You get them as gifts or you collect them as momentos of your travels. Saving shot glasses from bars, especially famous bars, is another way to increase your collection. No matter how they are acquired, your collection of shot glasses needs to be safely displayed so you and your guests can enjoy them.

A case with a glass door helps to keep dust off the glasses. Also a case with spaces for both single and double shots is nice.

A case with a mirrored back gives a bit of a bar feeling to the display so that might be considered when choosing any one case.

As your collection grows, you will want to add more cases to your display. Keeping all cases in a light wood or in a dark wood gives a cohesive feel to the display as a whole. A glass or plexiglass case really makes your collection stand out, though. Here are a few choices to get you thinking about how you want your collection to look.

NFL Tailgating Gear

Tailgating is just plain fun. Getting all the necessary gear for the party is part of the whole experience. As an American invention, tailgating now has its own place in American cuisine, too.

Probably the best known events for tailgating are sporting events and primarily football. But the practice can, and does, occur anywhere that there is an outdoor event. The Santa Fe Opera tailgating party traditionally takes place before the performances which are held in the outdoor theater.

There is no particular food that is required for this type of gathering but easy to do things are the most common. Hamburgers and hot dogs top the list of foods and beer easily tops the list of beverages. Soda come in a close second. There will also be a good representation of potato salad, cole slaw and baked beans.

Popular games played while tailgating include cornhole, ladder toss (also known as dangle ball, ladder golf, testicle toss and several others), kanjam, ringtoss and, of course, the ever popular beer pong.

Tailgating is a great way to meet new people and to reinforce bonds with old acquaintances, too.
