If you want to reduce the amount of time that you spend doing laundry and you want to feel free from the clutches of the washing mountain, it might be time to change how you go about tackling your laundry.
If you wash every time that you have a full load of washing, as long as you are able to get the washing dry then it is important that you use the few minutes needed to load the washing machine and set it to the required programme and press start. There are many times I have set this action in motion and have forgotten the last and most important step of pressing the start button!
It is important that you have places to dry your laundry; there is nothing worse than having wet clothing you have nowhere to dry. If you have outside space and the weather is nice, consider hanging it out to dry. This reduces the costs involved with running a tumble drier, saving you money too.
As soon as your laundry is dry it is important to fold it, this reduces the amount of creases and the amount of time that you spend ironing. Sort out the items that you are going to iron from the items that need putting away.
The more clothes that you and your family have, the more washing you will need to do; make sure that you have the right amount of clothes but not wearing excessive amounts of clothes that are only worn to try on and then thrown on the floor. If you have teenagers, you will understand this reference better.
It is important that you have places to put the items when they are clean. Have spaces for all clothes and not left in piles and in different rooms.
Teach young children how to put the clothes away and make this part of your daily routine. Putting away a small amount of clothes is less of a chore than putting away a mountain of clothes. There are great ways in which you can learn fantastic techniques of folding clothes quickly and easily and this can make the job of putting them away so much easier.
Washing machine clean
Keeping the inside of your washing machine clean is important. Putting dirty washing inside a dirty machine isn’t going to make them come out fresh and clean. It is possible to buy washing machine cleaner that you add to the machine on a regular basis keeping the inside germ free.
Therefore, if you don’t want the laundry monster taking up residence in your home then you need to tackle your washing before it can attack you. Create a habit of putting on the laundry as soon as you have a load of washing, making sure you have the space to dry the washing too. Putting away the washing in small batches makes the job easier to manage and you are in control of the situation.
