If your entire Sunday afternoon was spent on the laundry room for sorting the clothes, washing it, folding it and ironing it then you should know some tips to ease this process. Here, are five tricks on how to streamline your laundry routine.
Here are helpful five tricks on having an efficient laundry routine:
1. Pre-Sort Your Clothes
Generally, we spend lot of our time in sorting out the piles of dirty clothes before it is being washed. You should place laundry baskets in every room to eliminate the sorting of the clothes. You should sort your clothes in to three parts – colored clothes, delicate clothes and white clothes. When you take off your garment then you should place it on the correct basket so that you do not have to sort it out later on.
2. Schedule Laundry Day
By putting the laundry day in your schedule it makes easier for you to remember your task for each day and hence you do not pile up your clothes to be washed later on. By doing this, other members of the household also know the deadline for stocking in the dirty clothes so you do not have to hunt for the dirty clothes each day. By following this step you are able to do the laundering more than once in a week.
3. Hang Clothes Immediately
You should hang your clothes immediately after it is been washed as it helps to reduce wrinkles. If your clothes are left in the dryer or it is been piled up in the laundry basket then wrinkles develop very fast on it, which means you have to spend lot of your time ironing these clothes.
4. Keeps Socks Together
It is very common to lose socks in the laundry. You should wash your socks separately from rest of your clothes to avoid the hassle of tracking it down. After taking out your socks you should use a clothespin or a binder clip to clip the matching socks together to avoid it getting tossed in the washer. You can wash your socks with the clips or you can remove it just before it is been washed.
5. Equip Your Laundry Room
You should make your laundry room in to an efficient laundry zone to get in and out of it as quickly as possible. For it, you just need a little bit of organization. You should firstly put all the things which you need within easy reach. Secondly, you should be prepared. For instance, if your clothes have stains then you should keep all the necessary ingredients in your laundry room to take away the stains.
