Easy, Breezy Laundry Tips & Tricks for Cleaner Laundry!
Posted on by Beirut Abu Hdaib
In previous posts, we have shared with you several tips on organizing your laundry room and making your whites whiter. In another attempt to make your laundry day more fun and less stressful, today I will be sharing with you some general laundry tips and tricks that you will surely find useful.
Break laundry tasks into smaller ones: Don’t try to do all your laundry in the same day just to get it over with. You will end up stressing yourself out for no reason. Set a day for the colored clothes, one for the whites or the lights and call one “emergency laundry day”.
Presort your laundry in advance: If you just randomly put laundry together for sorting on your laundry day, you will be wasting time for no reason. Be sure you carefully presort your laundry as you go so you’ll be ready to wash it on the designated day.
Wash linens and towels weekly: Make it a habit to change and wash bed sheets, pillowcases and towels weekly to avoid having to do them randomly and waste time and detergent. Wash linens in a cold cycle and towels in a warm – not hot – cycle.
Empty your lint trap regularly: In order to make your dryer more efficient, be sure to check and clean out your lint trap regularly. We also advise that you line dry your clothes whenever possible.
Clean out your washing machine monthly: Take time every month to clean out your washing machine’s tub from dirt, hair and lint.
Check clothes before washing: Always make sure to check the clothes you are planning to wash for tissues, crayons or any other items that might be left in the pockets to avoid any mishaps. Also, make it a habit to read washing instructions and turn clothes inside out just to be on the safe side.
Looking forward to sharing with you more tips very soon. Happy 2016!
