Steps to Take to Make Laundry Duty Fun
It is a miracle to find someone who looks forward to doing laundry in a homestead. It is not the wish of most of us to be the one who has to sort through the dirty laundry as you place them in the washing machines. It is also not fun having to redistribute the laundry in each room. Luckily, there are things that can be done to make it easier for all concerned.
You can first start by bringing the laundry room to the present trendy times. You can make the room more functional by seeing to it that it does not lack any of the necessary amenities you need. You can, if possible get two washer-dryer machines in there to make your work lighter, and handle any load. The laundry can also be sorted systematically before being washed. You should assign specific areas of the room for keeping all the gels, powders and pastes needed for washing. Keeping them neat and well organized makes work easy. There also need to be a drying rack for delicate items, and for rainy days. This is how you keep the laundry from cluttering the house, which discourages one from doing the laundry in the first place.
You need to invest in sweet smelling detergents. We can all look forward to fresh and sweet smelling laundry. You achieve this through the scents you add to the wash. You will find plenty of options in the market when you are looking for these scents. Choose the ones your family is comfortable with and your laundry will smell great for everyone. You can also go for the scented fabric softener that people like. They usually, go for affordable rates. There is the option of using coupons, or hunting for sales when they come up. If you are into natural scents, you can choose the organic way, and use items such as lemon and tea tree. These have the added advantage of being antibacterial in nature. They tend to work well for washes that use low-temperature water.
You can also come up with a crate system. You will manage to shorten the laundry process duration. You get to sort through the laundry, while keeping the working time minimal. You will not have to go through the sorting when it is time to wash. Once you have finished laundering them; each person can come for their loads. You will thus not need to do the delivery for each person’s load. They will come and see which load belongs to them. Another advantage with this step is the sense of responsibility young family members get to pick.
