How To Have Fun While Doing Your Laundry

By Eddie Samuels

Tired of spending too much time, money, and effort on a dirty pile of soiled clothes? Well, the problem is not that it’s too difficult to do; rather, you just need to make the task simple! Here are five phrases you can keep for a positive attitude on doing laundry:

Prepare to wash! If you want to get the job done right…be equipped! Well, the basic tool for washing is water, of course. Using detergents, fabric softeners, stain removers, hampers, baskets, sinks, and racks all help you clean your clothes more effectively. Lastly, appliances such as the washer, dryer, and flat iron make the entire chore faster and better.

Follow the symbols. Most clothes have a tag containing laundry symbols. They indicate what material the clothing is made of, the temperature for washing, how you should dry it, the type of chemicals allowed, and how to wash it. Not all garments can be machine-washed. But no one’s stopping you from challenging it. However, for your clothes’ sake, heed the warning.

Safety and savings start with cleaning. Maintaining the cleanliness of your appliances not only ensures that your machine lasts longer; it also saves you from additional repair expenses and energy consumption.

Also, don’t even think of overloading your appliances. It might result in the faster completion of your chore, but that means you’ll need to buy a new appliance earlier.

Stains are not meant to stay. It’s a sad fact: a universal stain remover doesn’t exist. In treating stains, you should first consider the color and type of fabric. Different methods and chemicals have varied effects on dye and material.

As there are varied ways to remove certain stains, it is best to compare which methods and substances work better. There are a lot of household stain remedies available, and it might be wise to know which can come in handy in case of emergencies.

Extra effort means conserved energy. Planning ahead and preparing your laundry can make a big difference. Sort out the entire load first. Separate them first by color, especially the white. Then consider the fabric. You can also group according to their washing settings as indicated in the fabric care tag.

Making sure that each batch fits the appliance bins also ensures maximization of the machine use, electricity, time, and effort. You can make queues to create a flow of work from the washer to the dryer until the ironing. By creating a personal workflow system, you’ll be done in no time – and still have enough energy to enjoy life!
