What’s the one chore that seems to stay on a never-ending loop? If your answer is “laundry,” you’re not alone! Though other tasks like dusting, mopping and doing the dishes have to be done regularly too, there’s something about managing your laundry that can get overwhelming fast.
Between school being back in session and after-school activities back on full force, staying on top of the endless cycle of washing, drying and folding simply adds more to your busy schedule. Follow these tips to help you manage!
Purge High Maintenance Clothing
One way to make laundry management easier is to start when you shop. Select easy-to-care for items over high-maintenance ones. This can result in fewer trips to the dry cleaners or extra effort on your part to clean specialty fabrics.
Pick Days to Do Laundry
Schedule laundry days the best you can. This can be two or three days a week based on what works for your household. Pick a day to wash clothes, bed linens and towels, etc., to help streamline the process.
Establish Drop Zones Throughout the House
The first step to tackle the chaos that is laundry is to tackle it. Place hampers near closets or bathrooms, and designate some for clothes, some for linens and towels, and maybe even school and athletic uniforms that may need more frequent attention.
Sort Your Loads Efficiently
With the help of these hampers and your aforementioned laundry schedule, this task can be accomplished. Note that it may take some trial and error to determine what works best for you. Expect emergencies to pop up, but know that any effort to manage laundry will help!
Put Away Clean Laundry Immediately
This can be a tough one, but it’s worth making the extra effort before wrinkles set in. It will also make ironing a little less challenging. Plus, you’ll feel accomplished, and your home will feel more tidy and organized as a result.
