We can think of no better feeling than having all your laundry clean, fresh, folded and ready to wear. But getting to that point is another story.
The good news? You don’t have to dread doing the laundry. We have the tips you need to step up your laundry game while cutting down on the amount of time you spend on it. Whether you want to get cleaner clothes or save time, we can turn your laundry problems into fresh-and-clean solutions.
Quality-Boosting Laundry Tips
1. Faded colors
The problem: Color fading can take your favorite pieces from “ah!” to “blah!” and buying new clothes because yours already look old is no fun either.
The solution: Turning your dark-colored clothes inside out and washing in cold water can help preserve color, prevent snags or tears and keep you looking fresh. To help them smell fresh, too, Lavender Liquid Laundry Detergent from Home Made Simple will bring you a naturally inspired, relaxing scent. Plus, it’s effective in cold water, formulated without phosphates, dyes, or optical brighteners and made with renewable energy.Talk about a no-brainer!
2. Rough towels
The problem: You’ve washed your bath towels so many times that they’re not-so-fluffy anymore.
The solution: Wash your towels with hot water and 1 cup of white vinegar.Then wash them again with hot water and ½ cup of baking soda. (No need to add detergent to these cycles). After you dry them, you should find that some of their softness has been restored.
To help prevent rough towels in the first place, use our Home Made Simple Fabric Softener in every wash cycle for softer loads that are gentle on skin.
The problem: Wrinkly clothes! Enough said.
The solution: Fold clothes while they are still warm from the dryer to help to avoid wrinkles before they happen. If you don’t have enough time to fold them right away, hang wrinkly garments in the bathroom while you shower to steam out the wrinkles without having to use an iron.
Time-saving Laundry Tips
4. Separating loads
The problem: You want to keep your clothes as vibrant as possible but separating them by color is too time consuming.
The solution: Sort smarter! Add simple labeled laundry baskets to your laundry room to make separating easier and save time and hassle later.
5. Too soon to wash
The problem: Sometimes, clothing isn’t clean enough to wear again, but isn’t dirty enough for a full wash cycle.
The solution: If available, use the “quick wash”cycle on your washing machine. This will save some time and save you from wearing slightly dirty clothes. Or, if you’re strapped for time, spritz the clothing with Febreze CLOTHING to clean away odors and make it ready to wear again.
6. Drying takes too long
The problem: A full drying cycle can take forever, and by the time it’s finished, you’re too busy to fold them. The worst!
The solution: Throw a thick, dry bath towel into the dryer to soak up moisture and cut down your dryer time. You’ll never go back to regular drying!
These tips will make your laundry a little less cumbersome and a little more manageable. So relax, take a load off and get that laundry pile finished with Home Made Simple!
