Lighten the {Laundry} Load

Lighten the {Laundry} Load

  • Are piles and piles of laundry getting you down? We wanted to share a few quick tips to lighten up your laundry routine, so you’re not spending your whole week tripping over piles of clean, wait, maybe dirty (who knows?!) laundry!
  • 1) Get your laundry on a schedule. If you’re one of those people who waits until you’ve run out of something or until you get a spare moment to do the laundry, it’s time to make a date with your dirty clothes. Depending on the size of your family, pick the day(s) of the week that make most sense – when you’re home a bit more or have fewer obligations on your plate – and schedule your laundry! If you stick to the plan (even if the hamper isn’t over-flowing), you’ll feel like you’re on top of your piles and you’ll never run out of what you need!
  • 2) Get a great drying rack. Struggling with a cheap folding rack or worse, not having a rack at all, can make drying delicate items a daunting process. Your choices are a traditional folding rack on the floor, a wall-mounted rack, or a small closet rod if you hang items on hangers. If space is tight, a wall-mounted rack, which can be small or large, may be your best bet.
  • 3) Put it all away! One of the main reasons it feels like the laundry is never done is that some of us don’t leave time to see the task all the way through, folding and putting everything away – and you know who you are! Trust us, you’ll actually feel like you accomplished something if you make sure to fold and put it all away before the end of the day.
  • So if your laundry is weighing you down, lighten the load with these quick changes!
