Laundry 4-1-1

Saturday is laundry day at our house.

I know. For some of you, the laundry is done every day of the week, including Thanksgiving and Christmas. I get it. You’re doing laundry even when Wal-Mart’s closed.

So, in honor of whatever day the laundry gets done, here are 5 of my favorite laundry tips:

1. Cut the dryer sheets in half. They will still be effective and you will be able to wait twice as long before shelling out your hard-earned cash.

2. Pin socks together to avoid mismatching or disappearing singles. (If you lose both of the socks, will you ever know?)

3. Clean out the lint trap between every load of laundry. This is imperative if you don’t want to deal with a pesky house fire.

4. Add 1/2 cup of white distilled vinegar to the rinse cycle to brighten the color of fabrics.

5. Fold your laundry before ever taking it out of the laundry room/area. This will provide the incentive to do it quickly and put it away without letting it sit anywhere too long. (Involve family members as often as possible! Many hands make light the work.)
