Not too long ago I shared my tips for speeding up laundry days, and how in our home we really only do laundry about three days a week, choosing to segment the laundry process over three days. But I know that my system is not going to work for everyone! Some people need to go to the laundromat, or only have a clothes line for drying items. Others work full-time and don’t really have a full day to devote to changing out loads of laundry. Some need to wash their clothes sooner than just once a week because they don’t have as many clothing items or only have a few specific work clothes. Others have older children who can help more.
Whatever your situation is though, you still have to do laundry at some point, and it is most likely still not your favorite pastime. So, I have collected laundry tips from others, in the hopes that something will help you in your situation better manage the laundry piles in your home!
