How to Breeze Through Laundry Day

November 25, 2015 5:11 pm

If you want to make doing the laundry easier and more efficient, there are a few things to keep in mind. Follow these smart tips and you’ll breeze through this week’s laundry day!

  • Plan to multitask. Before you begin doing the laundry, make a mental list of other things that you can do while your clothes are in the washer. Plan a short workout, mop the floors, or catch up on emails.
  • Sort your clothes ahead of time. One of the best things you can do to minimize your laundry time is investing in a double-sided hamper. That way, you can separate the lights and the darks as soon as you take off your dirty clothes, and they’ll already be sorted once it’s time to do the laundry.
  • Treat stains. If you stain an article of clothing, be sure to treat it as soon as possible. Even if you don’t wash it right away, treating the stain as soon as it happens will ensure that it doesn’t settle into the fabric.
  • Fold right away. Folding your clean laundry is the most time-consuming aspect of laundry day, so be sure to get it out of the way as soon as your clothes are dry. Leaving it for later only prolongs the process, particularly if you end up with wrinkly clothes!

Build Your Own Poki Bowl with Japanese and Hawaiian Elements

November 18, 2015 8:47 pm

Poki Bowl doesn't exactly serve Japanese sushi, but it doesn't exactly dish out typical Hawaiian fare, either. Its food lands somewhere in between. The San Jose restaurant's version of fusion cuisine incorporates components of both Japanese and Hawaiian food—and maybe a few others—while allowing eaters to DIY their own dinners.

Step one: decide on your bowl size and base. The bowls come in both regular and large, and the base can be sushi or brown rice, or green salad.. Then you have to pick your mix from options such as spicy tuna, shrimp, yellow tail, and octopus. Next up: the sauce. "Not Spicy," mild, and spicy all promise drastically different meals. Now you're ready to choose your toppings from a long list, which encompasses everything from avocado and green onion to crab meat and masago eggs. All that's left is to decide on a side and any extras. Voila! You have your own customized poki bowl. Time to dig in.
