admin March 4, 2017 0 comment(s)
Let’s face it, laundry is a necessary chore that many of us find tedious and repetitive. Laundry piles up faster than the fallen snow and takes up a lot of time between washing, drying, folding and ironing. The word laundry is right up there on the list of things we dread hearing. In short, it’s a difficult and time-consuming chore, which seems like it never ends. Not many of us love to do laundry, but that doesn’t make it the worst chore in the world. With a little bit of planning and self-control, it can be made less of a chore and more of something you wouldn’t mind doing.
Here are some tips that will help you make your laundry detergent-free and turn it into your favorite chore.
Tip #1: If you find laundry a drag, either do it way more frequently or way less often
At first, you need to decide whether it’s better to do small loads throughout the week, or a ton of laundry once a week. Well, just for your information, washing multiple loads in one day may result in overloading the system and clogging the drain field. So, the solution to this situation is to break your laundry chores into smaller tasks, i.e. washing a few smaller loads every few days, instead of many large loads once a week. This helps you conquer the big pileup of laundry and makes things much easier and not so overwhelming.
Tip #2: Don’t think of it as “a typical laundry day” at all
Don’t make a job harder than it needs to be. Your laundry day doesn’t have to be a pain. You can do laundry while performing other household chores, such as watching television, diving into a good book, or listening to your favorite radio station. In addition, the easy availability of streaming media, audio books, and podcasts these days helps you make this chore much more of a delight. Those are just a few things you can implement to start looking forward to a laundry day.
Tip #3: Spend less time (and money) shopping for chemical laundry products
As figures depict, the average household in the U.S. spends up to $700 a year on detergents and hot water usage. If you live in a busy household, you’ll know that laundry detergents, fabric softeners, and drying sheets go just about as fast as a fresh batch of homemade cookies. Furthermore, chemicals found in these products can be harsh on clothes. The abrasives used within these products can scrape and scrub surface layers of clothes including colors and threads.
In case you are wondering if not detergents and softeners for washing clothes, then what?
There is an amazing and fairly new solution available. You can get rid of these chemical substances and make your laundry detergent free by investing in environmentally friendly appliances that attach to your existing washer. You can have clean clothes without using hot water and laundry detergent!
And the bottom line?
Using eco-friendly appliances that attach to your washing machine is better for your clothes, healthier for you, the planet, and your pocket. Your clothes last longer, smell nicer, and the colors stay brighter.
