Quick 'N Easy Laundry Tips


There are a lot of people that will save all of their laundry for one day. On this day, they tackle load after load of laundry and it can take the entire day. To cut down on time and expedite the process, incorporate a few tips and tricks into your laundry day routine.

One Person at a Time
Rather than having one bin for dirty clothes, try giving each person their own bin or hamper. Keeping each person’s clothing separate will allow you to do laundry one person at a time. This will cut down on the time it takes to separate the freshly washed and dried clothing into their respective folded piles.

Bag of Socks
Losing socks in the washer and dryer is far too common. Finding matching socks during the folding process is far too frustrating. Eliminate both of these problems by placing each person’s socks in their own mesh bag. This mesh bag will keep all of the socks safe in one area, saving you from losing socks and your precious time.

Open Door Policy
Laundry day may take you a long time due to the amount of clothing that needs to be washed, but it should also include maintenance of the appliances. After your final wash, you should keep the washing machine door open. This will allow the moisture inside of the machine to escape, preventing mold and mildew from forming inside of the machine and near the rubber seal.

Washing and drying laundry is a long and tedious process to complete, but it can be improved with the help of a few tips and tricks.
