Laundry... We all have to do it and for most of us, we all hate it! At least, I know I do! For me, the worst part is sorting & then putting away! In our home, if you don't bring it down to the laundry room & sort it yourself, it may never get washed. I like to be able to just pull clothes out of the laundry sorter & dump it in the washer.
I am constantly looking for ways to simplify the laundry process, but it seems mostly impossible... Until now! I was reading this blog this morning & came across a very interesting technique!
What is it??? DON'T sort!!! *gasp* I know, right?!?! You want me to put the whites with the jeans and the socks and everything else??? Well, that was her suggestion!
So I tried it this morning... My results??? Absolutely perfect! The above pic is the load I washed. As you can see, I had white t-shirts, bring blue & red shirts, camo shorts, & everything else. And here is how it came out.
My whites were white & the brights didn't run. I will definitely continue doing this!
She did give a few pointers:
- Add 1/2 cup white vinegar to the load
- or use Shout Color Catcher ($0.55 print coupon)
- Put in dryer right when it finishes
**Have you ever done this? Would you be willing to try? I'm not gonna lie, I had my doubts & made sure I didn't wash anything of mine & nothing that was anyone else's favorite! ;) What's the worst part of doing laundry for you??? Do you have any other shortcut suggestions???
