Laundry Tips



Laundry Tips


Getting it done

-Have established laundry days in your house.  The number of people in your household will dictate how frequently you need to do laundry.  If you have a lot of laundry you might need to embrace the fact that laundry is a daily thing…sorry.
-Get a load started first thing in the morning.  My routine is to throw in a load while the kids are at the table for breakfast.
-Set a timer to remind you when to rotate the laundry and also again when you start the dryer to remind you to take the laundry out.  My preferred timer is the microwave because it just keeps beeping until I go turn it off.  This is critical for me because the timer on the washer and dryer will beep a few times and then be done.  If I’m in a different part of the house I sometimes don’t hear it, or I hear it but then get side tracked and forget to go rotate the laundry.  I go straight from shutting off the timer to the laundry room. 

Folding and putting away (True confessions-this I where I struggle)
-Have an established place for folding
-Recruit kids as much as possible
-Definitely get the kids to put away their own clothes as soon as they are old enough.  How old is old enough, 2 ½, 3, you know your kids.
