Doing the laundry is not anyone's favorite pastime. It happens to be that doing the laundry is NOT really one chore, as it disguises with many, many other chores in itself. You have to sort, you wash, you dry, you fold, THEN you have to put them away, AND there are always items that need ironing!
So unless doing your laundry is truly your favorite pastime, you'll love these tips that will help you make this painful chore a little bit easier and productive, save you some time and headaches, and even save you some money!
Don't we all hate when we forget or do not have the time to remove the freshly dried laundry from the dryer?
When laundry cycle ends, items are still very warm, and that's when they should be removed. When we let them sit there, as the fabric cools down, wrinkles start to form.
Most of the times we either forget, or do not have the time to remove the items right away, and by the time we get to do it, we end up folding or hanging items that are all wrinkled-up.
Personally, I can't stand doing that, or much less, iron things that I normally don't. Who has time for ironing every single item, anyway?
So this is how I get rid of the wrinkles formed in the dryer . . .
Who does not love to end end up with amazingly great-smelling clean laundry?
I can't imagine anyone that that will answer no to that question. All of us do!
That's why to get this great result, we have no choice but to buy the liquid Fabric Softener that works during the wash, PLUS the Dryer Sheets that work during the drying cycle, to ensure that the laundry really ends up smelling terrific . . . or NOT!
In fact, when you do that, you are actually buying the same product twice, as they are really designed to be used either or, not both!
I was guilty of making the same mistake, spending that extra money, buying both products. That is until one day I noticed a very young couple in the laundry isle. They were obviously newlyweds, or on a tight budget, or both. He was so mad at her because she was buying the liquid softener, plus the dryer sheets of the same product and fragrance! He was asking her: "why do you have to buy both when they are supposed to do the exact the same thing?" Her answer? . . . "because the laundry never ends up smelling great!" That answer lit up my creative self, and it was the end of my buying both products . . . forever, and start saving!
That actually happened many years before Febreze came to the market, and when it did, I realized I already had my own! So this trick became good for two products in one . . . isn't that awesome?
Do you know how this simple item can help you get organized?
If you have little ones that you still need to help getting ready for school in the morning, this idea is a real big helper. If you have more than one kid, or if you work outside the house, you know how hectic it could be in the morning when you have two kids asking you where to find their shirt, while trying to get everything else ready, including yourself.
With a little organization, clever tricks, and the help of your kids, you can make mornings a lot easier for everyone!
