5 steps to clean laundry every week
This post was sponsored by Gain. All opinions are my own.
If you’re anything like me you feel like you are doing laundry everyday. Soon we will be a family of four and my goal is to clean laundry less but have laundry stay smelling cleaner than ever. We really want to have clean laundry and only do laundry 1x a week instead of 5x weekly.
What’s worse? Cleaning or folding?
I get a lot of other moms and parents saying how laundry and folding is another chore. Which, I absolutely agree with. If we could have a magic laundry bot I’m sure we would. I decided to come up with a few ways to make sure we have clean laundry every week without doing it everyday.
1 | Find more than one dedicated person to help with laundry.
I have a cousin who absolutely loves to fold. That or have everyone fold their own laundry.
2 | Use sorting baskets.
I was always taught to wash darks with darks, towels separately, delicates on their own and so forth. It’s easier doing by color especially, since they won’t run.
3 | Make it a game.
When it comes to kids, make it a game. That way they understand how chores work and make it fun. When it’s not fun they won’t do it. Last Christmas, we got A a basketball over the door laundry basket. Once it’s full he knows it’s time to wash laundry.
4 | Set up a designated day just for laundry.
The longer days you stretch out the longer it will take to finish up the week’s laundry.
5 | Find a laundry detergent that works as a 2 in 1 like Gain with Essential Oils:
I recently discovered them at Dollar General and have become obsessed. Each variation is infused with their titled scent and gives your clothes a refreshing clean and an irresistible fragrance. But, it’s not overpowering.
They come in three different scents.
● Lavender & Calm Chamomile
● Eucalyptus & Mindful Mint
● Orange & Energetic Grapefruit
I am such an Essential Oils lover so this detergent is a must. A little really goes a long way. You get to experience the scent of essential oils in every wear.
