My Laundry Schedule

Back in 2012, I asked about how others did their laundry and heard several different responses.  In December 2013,  I asked my friends on Facebook how they handle all of their laundry and the responses got me on a mission.   I had to figure out a new system for my family.

Step 1:    I got everyone in my family a laundry hamper that fits ONLY 1 X-large load of laundry.   This is key!  If the hamper is too big then the loads get overwhelming.  If they are too small then it just seems like a waste of water and time.   The Jall hampers from IKEA work great and the price is right currently $4.99 each.

Step 2.  I also created a hamper system for towels and delicates.  Towels are the easiest items to clean in my opinion so whenever I get a load of towels I can throw them in the laundry and put them away easily.  I love this picture by the way because my 2 year old took it.

Step 3.  Everyday I do at least 1 load of laundry.  I find that it isn’t as overwhelming as it may sound.   Whoever has a full hamper that is the load for the day.  I don’t sort by colors and whites.  I throw it all in.   Since the laundry is only that person’s laundry the sorting is super easy at the end.  My daughter’s laundry will be taken to her room and the boy’s laundry will be taken to their room.

Step 4.  Label each of the hampers.  I used Vinyl with my new Silhouette Cameo.

Step 5.   When I put the laundry away for items that need to be hung up I do it as I take them out of the dryer.   I have a shower curtain rod hanging in my laundry room and I put hangers on it.    Then all I need to do is put away the rest.   That is it!

How do you do your laundry?  Do you have a system?   What do you think?

What’s your Laundry Schedule? and What do you use to clean your clothes?

How do you do your laundry?

Do you do it all at once? Do you take your time and a do a load once a day?  Leave me a comment with your thoughts.

I’ve had this problem for sometime now. Since I work full-time, I rush around the house in the morning to get the baby, husband and myself out the door. I sometimes throw in a load of laundry into the washer and take a load out of the dryer and put it into a basket for later folding or hanging.

Recently, I got into a routine to start a load in the morning and when I get home I put a load away and put the load in the dryer.  I feel it is a lot easier to put laundry in the washer in the morning then putting in the dryer.

What do you use to clean your clothes?

I’ve been a fan of Purex laundry detergent since I read about it from the Queen of Clean a couple years ago.  Since I started using coupons I’ve started to try different brands when I get a good deal.

I like using Fels-Naptha as a pre-treater.  It works great at baby blow outs.  Yucky!  It also works well on greasy stains.  As seen on TV the Duggar family has their recipe too, which I hope to try some day.  For my small family that will last us a couple years!
