Hi lovelies. OK, want to see something not so lovely? My laundry. It’s definitely a regular mess on Mondays (and pretty much every other day of the week) around here. I can’t seem to stay on top of all of the clothes…washing, folding and putting away. I try not to feel too bad about it because with 4 kids it always going to be a never ending task. But I’m not going to lie, every time I walk back into my laundry room I get a little depressed. I don’t have a fool proof system and to be honest, I kind of don’t want one. Well, I don’t want to do laundry every day is what I don’t want. But what about you? Do you have a laundry routine or system? I’d love to know. I’m up for ideas and suggestions. I have a few pointers or suggestions that might be helpful if you are looking for some insight yourself:
- Do a load of laundry everyday (Confession : I don’t do this. I let it pile up really high and then go crazy once a week).
- Fold clothes immediately in the laundry room (this helps if you tend to let clothes sit in the basket until they are wrinkled).
- Have a separate laundry basket for each person in your house + after clothes are folded put them in their appropriate basket + have each person put their own laundry away (my friend suggested this + I’m going to give this a try).
- Keep a hamper for darks and a hamper for lights….that way your laundry is already sorted + ready to wash.
And speaking of laundering, do you have a favorite detergent or stain remover? I’d love to know if you like any natural and environmentally friendly ones. Right now I’m using the Tide Pods and am trying this stain remover.
P.S. Notice anything funny about the first photo? It’s only Liam Brave trying to take a spin in the washing machine.
