3 Ways to Change Your Laundry Routine So You Can Lighten Your Load This Fall

Change your laundry routine

Kids go back to school, summer Fridays go away and life routines change, so if your laundry routine is taking longer than your fall schedule allows, it may be time to shake things up. While taking advantage of a 24-hour drop off service would be the best way to decrease laundry time and increase schedule flexibility, there are things you can do at home that’ll make a significant difference. Here are 3 ways you can rustle up your laundry routine so it falls in line with your other daily activities, rather than having your life revolve around your chores!

Stop Wasting Time Leafing Through Dirty Clothes
If you’re one of the many people who sort clothes before you wash them (and if you’re not, you should become one!) there’s a better way to do it, and this fall is the perfect time to start. Although separating your clothes preserves their color and prevents bleeding of dark colors onto light colors, it can be time consuming. Instead of leafing through your hamper on laundry day, start using two hampers rather than one. This way, you can put your dark clothes in one and your white clothes in the other, so you’ll have one lesson thing to do later on.

Create Warmth in Your Laundry Room
No, this doesn’t mean to turn up the temperature—it means you should create a warm, organized and comfortable environment in your laundry room! From decluttering it of anything that’s not laundry related to organizing all of your laundry products for easy access, transforming your laundry room will make you more willing to want to get your laundry chores done in there. You may also want to consider keeping loose change from pants in a cute mason jar, installing a clothing hanging rod to make drying easier and lighting up a fall scented candle while you’re in there…because who doesn’t love the fragrance of fall and calmness of a candle?!

Spruce Up Your Laundry Products
Just like most of us have our go-to brand for toothpaste, dish soap and surface cleaner, you may have a favorite laundry detergent, stain remover and dryer sheet brand. However, technology is always changing the laundry product game, so if you haven’t switched up your products in a while, now may be the time to fall in love with something new. With stronger stain remover products and tougher odor removing solutions available these days, you may be happy to find that these newer, more advanced laundry products will make doing laundry even easier and more effective.
