6 Ways to Make Doing Laundry Easier

Even if you don't mind doing laundry, sometimes there's just too much of it — especially if you’ve got a baby who loves to throw food! Fortunately, there are ways to lighten your loads. Read on for tips that’ll save you time and keep your clothes and linens in tip-top shape when you do laundry.

Check Your Settings

With so many dials and buttons, it’s hard to know the best way to wash and dry. For example, if your washer tends to take an extra long time, it may be on an extended cycle. Adjust the settings to “normal wash” or even a shorter cycle for lightly soiled items or small loads. The shorter your cycle time, the more loads you’ll be able to do on laundry day. (It pays to read that owner’s manual at least once.)

Pre-Treat Stains

Yes, it’s an extra step, but pre-treating stains before doing laundry may actually save time in the long run by getting rid of them the first time around. For stubborn stains like grass, blood, or baby poop, rinse and then pre-treat with either a small amount of liquid detergent or a stain lifter. Many detergent brands offer online instructions on how to deal with common culprits.

Use a Clothesline

There are a couple of very good reasons to hang at least some of your laundry out to dry, indoors or out. For one thing, you’ll save energy. Other plusses: Air-dried sheets and towels smell wonderful, laundry ends up less creased, and once you’ve hung it up, you’re free to leave the house without waiting for the dryer to finish. If you don't have room for a clothesline, drying racks are another good option for indoor use.
