I never have piles of laundry waiting to be folded. I’m never sitting in front of my couch struggling to get through that day’s clean laundry. My trick? Drum roll please!!!
I fold it.
HAHA! That’s it! I FOLD IT!
Seriously, my only trick is to fold the laundry as I take it out of the dryer. I never really thought this was all that earth shattering until I had several girlfriends say, “Oh, that’s a good idea!”
I designate one half of my laundry basket to folded shirts & pants. The other half is for socks, underwear and anything else that I don’t need to fold. I save sorting out my socks for when I put away my laundry.
By folding the clothes as soon as they leave the dryer, I believe it cuts down on wrinkles. I hate ironing, so that is a huge plus for me!
Now if only I could find a way to motivate myself to put all the clean folded laundry away!
Want another little trick? I use the used fabric softener sheets to help me clean out the lint trap. A dirty dryer lint filter can be a real fire hazard. It is recommended that you clean it out after every load of wash, but sometimes it isn’t so easy to peel the lint off. Rub the fabric softener sheet over it and it comes right off!
It is amazing how the simplest things we do can be a great idea to someone else. Do you have any laundry or housekeeping tricks to share?
