Sometimes that giant pile of laundry that is just sitting there in your laundry room staring you in the face can be quite frustrating to say the least. And how does laundry seem to multiply so quickly? Seriously, it’s as if the pile of dirty clothes multiplies overnight.
- It has to be one the most monotonous chores out there, right? You put a pile of dirty clothes in the washing machine, switch it to the drier, fold and repeat. Over, and over and over. Day after day the same laundry structure, never varying.
To be honest, while it may feel as though you are doing the same task over and over, it also seems like those tasks take forever.
- Have you ever found yourself checking your washing machine to see if it was done, only to find out that it’s nowhere near even being close to the rinse cycle? It’s happened to all us, trust me.
But, there is a silver-lining to the laundry world. There are ways that you can do your laundry more quickly and more efficiently.
Here are a few laundry tips to get you organizing for the new year. Take a peek at all of our organization printables if you’re really ready to purge and get things in order!!
Laundry tips and tricks
- Stop sorting clothes right before you put them in the washer.
- While sorting clothes is important (no reds with your whites!), why waste the time and energy of adding ANOTHER step to your laundry list when your clothes can already be sorted and ready to go from the beginning?
- Have a clothes basket separator like this set up in your room for your whites, darks, and colors. Then when its laundry time you literally just have to pick up the hamper and throw the contents in the washing machine. Super fast, super easy and that should make you super happy.
- Have each member of your family carry their dirty clothes directly to the washing machine (or install a laundry shoot like we have).
- How many countless hours do you think you spend walking around and gathering up each and every piece of laundry that needs to be washed for all your family members? Instead of wasting your time in doing that task, why not have them all take their dirty laundry directly to the source and make it a bit easier for you?
- Take it a step further and have them separate their clothes out as well using a laundry basket separator like this.
