Get Back to School Ready with TEFAL

by Tefal Team on 04 September 2023
  • Summer is coming to a close and we’re getting ready for the Autumn season as the nights begin to draw in and we start to get cosy.

    While children may be getting excited to get back to school and see their friends, after a fun and long Summer, a lot of parents may be feeling apprehensive about Back to School, particularly with tasks looming; like ironing the school uniform, preparing school lunches and doing the morning drop off.

    But Rome wasn’t built in a day, so let’s deal with these things one at a time. By the end of this blog post, you’ll be feeling calmer and ready to tackle the next few weeks.

  • Task #1: Ironing the School Uniform

    We know those first few mornings back can be hectic, getting the kids up, washed, dressed, fed and ready for school can be quite a shock to the system, and that doesn’t even include getting yourself ready for the day.

    So understandably, you can’t be spending your time ironing the school uniforms when you have so many other things on your plate. We get it, and we’re here to help!

    You can go hands free with the Care for You, de-wrinkle, sanitise and steam in just 10 minutes! We know, it sounds too good to be true, but this product really is magic.

    With TEFAL’s linen care products, you could make the dreaded task of ironing the school uniform so much simpler and save yourself tonnes of time.

    Simply place your school items (up to 3-5 items) on hangers into the Care for You, place on the weights to help straighten, and select the 10-minute setting. Hop in the shower or head to the kitchen to start preparing the breakfast and return to the school uniform wrinkle free and ready to go.

    Watch this Reel to see just how effective it really is in practice.

  • It’s out with the Irons and in with the Steamers

    We know that uniform will have been collecting dust in the wardrobe for the last 6 weeks, but it might just need a little freshening up ahead of first day back. This is where our steamers come into play.

    Take a look at the Pure Tex that sanitises and steams your clothes in minutes.

    Erasing even dog and cat hairs from clothing, what more could you need?

    Or check out the Pure POP. A hand-held steamer that heats up in just 15 seconds and comes in 4 bright and exciting colours.

    Top tip: Get the kids involved! Ease some of the pressure for yourself and get the whole family to chip in. This can teach fantastic values to your children and also means you’ll get the job done in half the time. Encourage the kids to steam their own shirts ahead of their first day back. You might just entice them with this bright and trendy steamer, coming in 4 exciting colours.

  • Task 2: Meal Prep Time

    Now, task one is out the way. Onto the next, preparing school lunches and quick and easy dinners for the whole family.

    It’s the perfect time to invest in products that can speed up time spent in the kitchen. So let’s start of with the new dual Air fryer.

  • It’s Easy with the Dual Air Fryer

    First up we bring to you the Dual Air fryer, recently launched here at TEFAL. Prepare healthy, delicious lunches and dinners that your kids are going to love. Less fuss but just as much flavour!

Whether you’re looking for a sweet breakfast or a more savoury one, the Dual Air fryer has got you covered. Have a browse on the Tefal App or search for our scrambled egg, cooked spinach and tomatoes or our caramelised apples and pears with yoghurt. There are so many functions to this clever air fryer and tasty breakfast recipes to tuck into. You can even use the ‘sync’ setting, to switch on each drawer automatically at different times. This will ensure they finish cooking at the same time so your meal is piping hot and ready to eat.

    Want to treat the kids to a tasty dessert after a great first day back? Why not check out our TikTok and whip up these Biscoff cookies.
