Ever since spring sports started & my husband started to go back to the office, I feel like I am drowning with laundry. I feel like I am doing laundry everyday and they still tell me they can't find their socks, masks, or jerseys.
I used to love doing laundry because I love to touch and smell the softness of the clothes and the fresh scent from the detergent.
So I thought I need to make it more enjoyable and feel accomplished, not defeated.
5 Ways to make doing laundry more enjoyable
- Plan out a laundry day
Set a day or two and time of the week just to do laundry, so you don't stress out almost everyday of the week.
Sort it out first
Get a good hamper with separate sections, instead of a big basket full of dirty clothes. Save your time sorting them before each load.
Try a new scent
I find it is more enjoyable when I try new things, just like trying new restaurants. New scent will create excitement.
Do it with your kids
I found that my kids are more willing to help out with laundry when I do with them. I even have a little game to see who can put their clothes away faster.
Fold the clothes first right out of the dryer
This is my favorite trick. I just fold them as I take them out one piece at a time. When I put them all in the basket, it is more likely they will not get folded in a day or two. Plus they will not be too wrinkle.
Thank you for making your home a lovely place.
Happy Monday & Live Elegantly!
