5 Tips to Simplify Laundry Posted on July 26, 2018 under Blog. | no comments.
Laundry is one of life’s unavoidable chores, but there are ways to make to simplify laundry. Here are five tips to simplify your laundry routine.
Use two hampers
Keep two hampers, one for lights and one for darks. Don’t wait until laundry day to separate your piles. Drop dirty clothes into a light or dark basket each night to make sorting simpler.
- Never lose a sock again
Keep a mesh bag near your hamper, and throw dirty socks in there when you are done with them. Mesh bags, often used to keep delicates safe, will keep your socks paired in the washing machine.
- Develop a convenient routine
Consider this schedule for laundry duty: Dinner time is laundry time. Before sitting down to dinner, start a load of laundry in the washer. Switch the clothes to the dryer just before bed. Wake up and fold and sort first thing in the morning. Do laundry several times a week, instead of trying to fit it all in on one day.
- Make space for dry cleaning
Designate a special basket or area in your closet for dry clean only items. Keep these items out of the hamper to avoid accidentally running them through your machine. Set a reminder on your calendar for regular visits to the dry cleaner. Or, keep your VIP garment bag handy and schedule regular free pick up and delivery service.
- Fold clean clothes, right away
Don’t leave piles of clean clothes laying around. Make an effort to fold and put away clean clothes, right away. Piles of clean clothes left unkempt in baskets can become musty, and cause clutter. The laundry is not done until the piles folded, sorted, and put away.
By following these simple steps, you can take back control of your laundry and simplify one of life’s most tedious chores. You can also use professional laundry service. Call 239.598.1555 for more information.
