We have all had those moments when we enter our laundry, only to encounter a mountain monster of laundry staring back at us. We think to ourselves, how did this get so big, and I really wish this would disappear. Well, with a bit of daily discipline, you can concur that mountain and become a laundry legend in no time.
Like doing the dreaded dishes and making your bed, laundry needs to be a daily chore. Some simple changes to your everyday routine can significantly minimise your laundry and save your precious time.
Do some laundry every day
Taking the time to throw a laundry load in each day saves more time in the long run. Instead of doing all the loads in one day, take 15-20 minutes each day to wash at least one load. Go about your normal daily routines, then dry the load, shake out the items, and start the sorting process.
Laundry baskets in each bedroom
Invest in several baskets for your and your family's bedroom. Each morning do a sweep of the rooms and collate the dirty clothing into the laundry. This way it doesn't pile up and becomes more manageable.
Use basket for light, dark and colours
Sort your dirty laundry into dark whites and colours, this way, you are maximizing your loads and ensuring no nasty dyes leek onto your precious clothes. We have all had that rouge red sock that has wreaked havoc on our white shirts in the past.
Simplify your sorting
If you leave, you will grieve…. As soon as it finishes a load, pop on another one, and with the clean clothes, place them in the dryer or air straight away. Babe, it will take only 5 mins, and you will be so glad you did it.
Enlist a little help
Delegating everyone to their own clothes basket means we can get everything put away in record time.
