Laundry day isn't necessarily fun, but it doesn’t have to be so daunting. Follow these simple tips you can make it more simple and efficient:
Wear your clothes more than once. This may sound gross, but there are many clothing items that really don’t need washed after each wear. Pieces like jeans, button-down shirts, and dresses don’t need washed as often as, say, your gym clothes, so hang them back up instead of tossing them in the laundry pile.
Eliminate sorting. Sorting your lights and darks can be one of the most frustrating parts of laundry day, not to mention the most time consuming. By investing in separate hampers for light and dark clothing you can sort your clothes ahead of time.
Remove stains after they happen. It’s easy to get frustrated with a stain, remove your shirt, and toss it in the laundry basket to deal with later. These small stains add up though, and removing each individual stain can lead to quite a bit of time to your weekly laundry day. Deal with stains as soon as they happen so that you don’t tack any extra tasks onto washing your clothes.
