What are your favorite laundry day tips/hacks??
Let's face it, it's pretty common to find out that most people don’t love doing laundry. Between the washing, drying, sorting, and putting away, it’s not everyone’s version of a good time. But unfortunately, laundry is something that needs to be done regularly, and if it has to be done, we might as well make it a fun and functional experience. I thought I'd share top 5 tips to make laundry day easier.
1.) SORT AS YOU GO:
Not everyone has the opportunity to delegate their laundry duties. If you have to do your own laundry, one thing you can do to make laundry day easier is to sort as you go.
You can purchase a divided hamper to start sorting your clothes as you use them. If you can’t find a divided hamper that works for you, you can just buy multiple baskets and use them to sort your clothes.
This will save you a ton of time because you don’t have to sort all of your clothes at once, and on laundry day you can get straight to washing!
2.) STAIN TREAT AS YOU GO:
Another task that takes up a lot of time on laundry day is stain treating your clothes. We recommend treating your stains as they happen.
Not only will this allow you to skip this step on laundry day, but by treating your stains immediately, you reduce the risk of having the stain soak into your clothes; making it easier to get the stain out. My personal favorite tools are Dawn dishsoap for grease stains and Topanga Scents Multipurpose Cleaner for everyday stains (mytopangascents.com/shannahibbardMytopangascents.com/shannahibbard )
3.) USE A SOCK ONLY MESH BAG
We all have socks that disappear during laundry.
Wouldn’t it be easier if you could tie up all your socks together? Well, that’s what zippered mesh bags are for. You can find them in the laundry section of your nearest big box store. To use, just place all of your socks in the bag, zip it up, and throw them in the washing machine.
Using a zippered mesh bag for your socks will not only make pairing them easier but will ensure they are all accounted for.
4.) SPLIT UP LAUNDRY BY DAY
Splitting your laundry into different days is a great way to reduce the stress of doing it all in one day.
You can choose one day just for your whites, one for towels, and one for colors.
Although you may have to do laundry more often, dividing your laundry throughout the week reduces the amount of work and stress required on a single day.
5.) USE GOOD PRODUCTS:
We've all been guilty of
making laundry day more complicated with 5+ products just to make it smell better. I introduce to you the only 2 products you need Topanga Scents Laundry Detergent + Topanga Scents Fabric Spray (mytopangascents.com/shannahibbarMytopangascents.com/shannahibbardd)!
I love these products because they are free of sulfates parabens and dyes plus they are hypoallergenic and smell amazing!!
