7 Ways to do your Laundry Like a Boss!
Laundry day, otherwise known as "the worst day of the week." It doesn't have to be! Here are a few tips to rock laundry day like the boss that you are!
1. Wash Your Clothes Less Often
We all want to avoid doing laundry as much as we possibly can right? What better way to do that than to, do it less often! Not every item needs to be washed right away. In fact, you can probably wear your clothes more than once before they need to be washed. Shirts can survive multiple wears, especially if you wear an undershirt. Believe it or not, some people don't even wash their jeans!
2. Remove Stains ASAP!
Don't waste your time and energy trying to scrub out that stain after it's been sitting for days... Keep a Tide to Go pen handy to remove right away.
3. Use Multiple Hampers
Save yourself some time by keeping multiple hampers around so you don't have to sort colors later! Simple as that...
4. Wash Everything Properly
You know how all the tags on your clothes have those little symbols? Those are there to tell you how your garment should be washed. Check below for a handy little chart to help you. A good thing to keep in mind is if you wash on cold, separating color doesn't matter. You'll also save time on drying cycles in one easier to dry load. Make sure you don't use fabric softener on towels either! They'll lose their absorbency.
5. Sock Bankruptcy
Tired of searching for that for all those missing socks or trying to pair them all together? I declare sock bankruptcy! Buy a whole new set of socks, a few colors, all from the same brand. Throw them in your dresser, and never sort again!
6. Use Less Detergent
This won't save you a whole lot of time, but it will save you some money! Most of us use way too much detergent in our laundry. Use less than the detergent manufacturer suggests, and your clothes will still be just as clean!
7. Clean Your Appliances
Many of us forget that we have to actually wash our washer & dryer too. But trust us, it will make them work better! Clean your washing machine every few months to get rid of soap build up, excess dirt.
