Save Time Doing Laundry
3 Ways to Spend Less Time Doing Laundry
Most people divide into two camps: those who love laundry and those who would give up chocolate for life if they could avoid cleaning (and laundry) all together. While we don't have a magic wand to make laundry disappear, we do have these simple, time-saving tips:
- Sort your laundry. Whether you are doing laundry for an entire family or just yourself, sorting your laundry is a simple and easy way to save time both when washing your dirty laundry and putting away your clean clothes.
- Do laundry daily. The average family of four will run 400 loads of laundry a year. With 365 days a year, save yourself some time and run 1-2 loads a day. If that is unreasonable, simply increasing the frequency throughout the week will help alleviate "laundry day."
- Clean out your closet. Making sure that your closets are clear of clutter can save time during your laundry routine. Clothing is less likely to become wrinkled and doesn't need to be washed as often when stored in a clutter-free closet where air can circulate. Not sure which clothes you want to donate? Change the direction of your clothes hangers and when you wear an item, put it back the other way. After a year, you'll have an idea which clothes you don't wear that can likely be donated.
