So much has changed in our lives, but one thing stays the same: that never-ending laundry pile. The faster you wash, the more it seems to pile up. Even if you've changed your wardrobe from business formal to weekend casual, the laundry pile only grows. Fortunately, there are ways to help keep the laundry pile at a reasonable level and free up your valuable weekend time.
Bag it Up
One of the worst parts of doing laundry is sorting through sweaty socks to match loads of colors, whites, and delicates. If you have kids and don’t use residential laundry services to clean their clothes, you’re likely shifting through shirts and shorts splattered with dirt, paint, glue, and unidentifiable goop that you can only hope is not a mushed-up garden bug.
To minimize your touches and speed up sorting, sort your laundry into compartmentalized laundry bins as you work through your piles. Toss your clothes into different bags or buckets, so you only have to touch those dirt-crusted socks once. You might even find that missing sock issue that always eludes you.
Another great laundry helper is washable mesh bags. They protect smaller and delicate items in the wash, and are especially helpful when washing your reusable face masks.
Organize your Laundry Area
Chances are, you don’t enjoy spending too much time in your laundry room. That's okay, but don’t neglect your clothing’s specific care instructions for a one-fits-all approach. What works for one shirt might damage another and cost you a replacement.
Organize your laundry room so that you can easily reach detergent, fabric softener, stain remover, and dryer sheets. You'll also want to have an area to hang delicates for air drying, a place for an ironing board, and a trash can for dryer lint.
Hire Residential Laundry Services
If you've tried the tips above and are still in a growing pile of clothes, consider hiring a laundry pick up service to wash your laundry on a weekly or monthly schedule. If you prefer to launder as your piles build up, check out residential laundry services with drop-off and pay-as-you-go options. The choice is yours to get the help you need, so you can spend more time with your friends and family.
