Steps to Take to Make Laundry Duty Fun
It is a miracle to find someone who looks forward to doing laundry in a homestead. It is not the wish of most of us to be the one who has to sort through the dirty laundry as you place them in the washing machines. Coming back to carry it all back to the rooms for arranging is also not a fun time. But there are ways you can make this necessary yet spirit-crushing chore easier on yourself.
You can first start by bringing the laundry room to the present trendy times. You can make the room more functional by seeing to it that it does not lack any of the necessary amenities you need. You can, if possible get two washer-dryer machines in there to make your work lighter, and handle any load. You can also institute a sorting system for when you are collecting laundry from each room. It matters where you store all the gels, powders and pastes needed while washing. Keeping them neat and well organized makes work easy. You need also to have a drying rack made, for when it is raining outside, or for those pieces that cannot be dried in a machine. This is how you keep the laundry from cluttering the house, which discourages one from doing the laundry in the first place.
There is also the inclusion of sweet-smelling detergents. When the cleaned laundry smells great, you will feel great too. The scents you add to the wash make this possible. There are many to choose from in the shops. You have to consult the family members on which scents they prefer on their clothes and linen. You can also go for the scented fabric softener that people like. They usually, go for affordable rates. You only need to have a coupon, or buy them when there is a sale. There is also the option of going all natural and using organic compounds such as lemon or tea tree for their scents. These have the added advantage of being antibacterial in nature. They are especially recommended for those times when the wash is with cold water.
Then there is the addition of a crate system. This helps in making the time for doing laundry as short as possible. You will thus have managed to effectively sort through the laundry, as you save time. You will have all you need to be prepared when it is time to wash. When you are through cleaning them, they can each come to pick their loads. You will thus not need to do the delivery for each person’s load. They will come and see which load belongs to them. This is another way of teaching the young ones some sense of responsibility, at least for their laundry.
