Laundry is by far one of the biggest challenges homemakers face on a daily basis. But laundry really doesn’t have to be as stressful as we often make it. Today I’m sharing some fantastic laundry hacks that make life easier and clever laundry tips to help you manage that mountain of laundry currently piled in your laundry room.
I know when I had five kids at home we had a ton of laundry. I did two loads of laundry every day! Over the years I learned that doing laundry doesn’t have to be stressful. In fact, I think as homemakers we often make it harder than it has to be.
For instance, one bad habit that homemakers often have is not folding laundry right away. If this sounds like you, I want to gently remind you: you’re making your life harder than it has to be.
Maybe you dread putting the laundry away. Maybe folding it feels like it takes forever. If you’re wondering how long does it take to fold laundry, I have good news for you!
It can take less than 10 minutes to fold one load of laundry.
I have a challenge for you: Today, wash and dry one load of laundry. Time how long it takes YOU to fold that load of laundry. I think you might be surprised at how quick it is. Let me know in the comments below!
Remember, laundry isn’t done until it’s put away. Train your kids to help you get it done and you’ll have less to do. Plus, you’ll be instilling a good habit in your children. Chores are important for kids and teach them valuable life lessons!
