Doing laundry can definitely be time consuming, but it doesn’t have to be! Take a look at these tips for getting laundry done fast.
Wash less often
This one may seem obvious, but many people wash their clothing after one wear. A lot of your clothes can be worn multiple times before washing…unless the clothing is noticeably dirty or smelly of course!
Eliminate sorting with multiple hampers
Have a hamper for whites, darks, and colours in your closet. When getting undressed put the dirty clothes directly into the correct category and this way you won’t have to sort them when it comes to laundry day.
Buy all the same socks
Matching socks can be a real chore. The best way to avoid sorting socks is to purchase all the same kind! Buy only a few colours, all from the same brand, and in large quantities. This way you avoid having to go digging for that one lost sock.
Get stains our right away
Avoid having to scrub stains away days later by removing them ASAP. Simple household items like club soda, lemon juice, and hydrogen peroxide can do the trick! Check out this stain removal infographic to see what works best for specific stains!
Try a “right away” bin
For clothing such as soccer uniforms, gym clothes, etc. put them in a “please clean me ASAP” laundry hamper so you know which items to wash first.
