Have you been doing a lot of laundry these days? I don’t understand why, but it seems like I am doing laundry double time these days. Maybe it’s because we are working outside so much or maybe it is because we are exercising more than ever, but I really didn’t expect to be so busy doing laundry with 4 out of the 5 of us rarely leave the house!
I’ve decided that with all of my time at home, I am going to put some effort into changing my habits and turning myself into more of a minimalist. Less stuff, less worry and less time spent on doing the same things over and over. I have learned how to significantly save time on laundry with these tips.
Save Time on Laundry with These Tips
One of the easiest ways that you can save time on laundry is by sorting it before you wash it. Ideally, you would have a sorting system for when clothes go into the laundry. If it is pre-sorted, it makes it so much easier to just grab them and toss them in the washer on laundry day.
Additionally, while you do need to sort clothes by color to some degree, it is also a good idea to sort your laundry by weight. If you have a large amount of clothing that is lightweight, you can fit more into your machine.
Wash Jeans Less Often
If you didn’t know it yet, you really shouldn’t wash jeans too often. Washing them too often can wear out the denim. Ideally, you should wash your jeans after every 3 wears.
Put it on the Schedule
To make your laundry duties a little easier, put it on your schedule. If you have it worked into your schedule and you follow said schedule, you are less likely to end up with a backload of laundry. It’s much easier to do laundry when you have just a couple of loads, rather than a room full.
