Transform Your Laundry Routine: 7 Ingenious Hacks for Effortless Washing
It's just another on a long list of chores, but there's something about doing the laundry… it's simply never-ending. Once you finish with one load, there's another to tackle and while the task is inevitable, like most chores, there are plenty of hacks and hints that can make the job a little simpler. From handy hacks to spectacular products, with these tips you might just find yourself looking forward to doing the laundry.
- Beat the Sock Monster
If you live in a house where socks constantly go missing, then you might want to consider this hack. Mesh bags are an excellent way to organise socks and make sure liners and kiddie socks make it back out of the machine. Make sure every laundry basket in the house has a mesh bag attached so everyone in the household can simply pop their socks in when they dump their dirties.
- Spot Treatment
Never underestimate the power of white vinegar and bicarbonate of soda. These two common household items pack a punch when it comes to tackling makeup or grease marks. All you need to do is sprinkle the bicarbonate of soda on the affected area and then add a few drops of white vinegar. Allow it to work for a few minutes, longer if it's a deeper stain, before you toss it in with the rest of the load and wait for stain-free clothing.
- Vamoosh Washing Machine Cleaner
What better way to make doing laundry easier than by using Vamoosh Washing Machine Cleaner to deep clean your washing machine? Forget about pesky pet hair clogging the machine, and don't worry about it finding its way into every load of laundry after you wash dog bedding. Vamoosh dissolves hair so you never have to see it again.
- Wrinkle Busting
If you don't have time to iron, but your clothes were in the tumble dryer too long you can toss several ice cubes in with your clothing and run the quickest drying cycle. It's the easiest way to get wrinkle-free and still take care of the rest of the chores at the same time.
- Foil Dryer Sheet
Forget spending big on dryer sheets, which only break down fabrics quicker and can slow your machine's efficiency. Instead, ball a sheet of aluminium foil and toss it in with your clothing. You can use that little bundle for six months at a time as long as it's in good shape.
- Quick Dry
If you want to save on the utility bill, you can speed up the drying process by adding a clean, dry towel to the load as you put it in the dryer. At least, for the first 15 minutes of the cycle. You can also shake particularly damp items out before you place them in the dryer.
- Hamper Supremacy
You can make life a bit easier by starting laundry organisation with hamper organisation, whether you have separate hampers for lights, darks, and delicates or you opt to buy a hamper that features different compartments. It makes laundry time much simpler when every load comes pre-sorted.
