First Time Dressing a Mannequin? Read This!


When dressing your mannequin, it's important you find the articles of clothing. The clothes must fit the mannequin properly and they mustn't have any wrinkle or creases. Make sure to steam/them the clothing on both sides of the garment. Remove the tags on the clothing if they can't be hidden.
Always start from the bottom of the mannequin and work your way up, leaving outer layers last to ensure they do not crease or wrinkle.
If the mannequin's legs are close together and you can put the pants on without detaching them, do so. In this case, it's best to put the mannequin in a seated position with its legs out straight ahead.
If you are unable to fit the pants on the mannequin's legs while they are attached, remove the legs and put the pants on separately. You can then reattach the legs when you are finished. If this is your first time reattaching the legs, ask for help because this part can be tricky.
Once you get to the torso of the mannequin, you may find you are working with a shirt without zippers or buttons and can't be opened. In this case, you will need to remove the arms from the torso before you begin. You can then put the arms back into place when you have finished.
If you are working with sitting/reclining mannequins, you will find it can be difficult to dress them in certain styles of clothing, such as tight jeans. You may also need to use larger sizes in order to fit them. It may be difficult to layer the clothing on these types of mannequins. You may also have similar difficulties dressing mannequins with bent arms.
Always take a final look at your mannequin to check and see everything looks right, the buttons are done up, etc.
Once you become more experienced with dressing a mannequin, you will be able to spend more time in styling them with the right accessories, popping the collar on a shirt, or just rolling up their sleeves to bring some life into your display.
Good luck!

Whirlpool washer ties clothes in knots on spin cycle


Its the wash or rinse cycle that is tieing the clothes in knots not the spin cycle. Try putting less shirts in. It happens because of the agitation during the wash. Or pin the sleeves together.

My cloths don't come clean.....whites are dingy even with bleach. Normal stains on regular colors don't come out. If you put more than one pair of pants or two long sleeved shirts in a load they come out...


First I would start by cleaning your washer system with vinegar. Ran your machine like you would without clothes and pour a cup of vinegar like you would with the soap for a whole cycle. If this doesn't work chances are your drain is clog or your pump isn't working properly.

HE3t Kennmore water fill level adjustment?


I completely understand your dilemma as I have the same problem with my HE3. I was so frustrated I called a service tech out before my warranty expired and he told me the #1 complaint about these washers is that they don't get the clothes clean. I was surprised at his honesty! He told me to get a water softener and to use hot water but said nothing about clothes that are supposed to be washed in cold water. I asked him how to adjust the water level and he said the sensor is not adjustable but I have been unable to find out if these is true. I agree with you and believe it's because they use too little water. I have come to absolutely hate this washing machine for many reasons. When washing anything long (jeans, pants, long-sleeve shirts, etc) it literally ties the whole load into a clothes knot. You can grab one item and pull the whole load out because it's a huge knot ball. So tell me, how do the clothes get clean (or properly rinse) when they are in a ball and unable to freely move through the water (which isn't there) in the bottom of the tub? Another problem is that it takes a MINIMUM of 3-4 rinse cycles to get the detergent out of the clothes...yes, I use HE detergent. Here's what I do. I use the 'add a garment feature' to interrupt the cycle after the washer has filled. Then I add about 2-3 gallons of additional water to both the wash and 1st/2nd rinse cycles. This has helped immensely but leads to two more reasons I hate the machine. First, that makes it extremely high maintenance to stand waiting for the moment to add water. Second, when adding the additional water, clothes have a tendency to get caught between the rubber gasket and wash tub where they can sit during the entire cycle not getting clean. On the up side I can say I've never had a mechanical problem with the machine. I am sorry and wish I could help more.
