Our Top Laundry Hacks
Laundry is a beast at our house. The piles get larger than life and it takes each and every day to keep it under control. With school back in session, parents are dealing with stinky gym uniforms and socks, grass stains on brand new blue jeans and ketchup blobs on the kiddo’s best shirts.
Our Moms Check In moms are talking all about our top laundry hacks to keep things moving along nicely in the laundry room. We’d love to hear your tips too! Drop us a comment below or chat with us on social media using the hashtag #MomsCheckIn and #LaundryHacks!
Top Laundry Hacks from our Moms…
“I’m a huge fan of sorting the laundry before it actually goes to the laundry! We have a 3 bin laundry hamper that really saves us time. One for towels, darks and lights. No more going through a pile! I was probably the last person on Earth to know how to wash pillows in the washing machine, but it’s so easy. You just wash them like your regular laundry and when you dry them be sure to throw in a few tennis balls or dryer balls. Nothing is better than getting in a bed with clean sheets and clean, sweet smelling pillows!”

“Oh, laundry! No matter how much we do, it seems there is always more! Over the years, I’ve learned to quickly deal with stains so that removing them is easier. Taking advantage of great products also helps remove stains and smells. These are some of my favorite laundry hack ideas to keep things fresh and clean: Clean your washing machine by filling the basin with warm water and 2 cups white vinegar. Let stand for an hour, then run the cycle as usual. Get clothes dry faster (and fluffier!) by putting a couple of tennis balls in the dryer. Use a mesh drying bag so you never lose another sock!“

“Laundry is the never-ending chore. It goes away for 2 seconds and then it’s right back. Nothing is worse than rough and stiff towels. I like mine super soft and fluffy. To fluff yours up, just add your towels to the washer, using hot water and one cup of vinegar and run a full cycle. Next, run another full cycle with hot water and 1/2 cup of baking soda. After 2nd cycle, dry towels in the dryer with tennis balls or dryer balls. You should notice a marked difference. If not, then repeat the process.“

My family has some really nice clothes that wrinkle easily and I hate to iron, so needless to say…we don’t wear them often. Now with Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus I don’t have to worry. Just a few sprays and voila, the wrinkles start fading away! It’s my newest fave product, for sure!
