SORT IT OUT!
Do you feel overwhelmed at the thought of laundry day? Does it seem like it has been months since you have seen the bottom of your laundry hamper? Well, you are not alone. Doing laundry can be a daunting task but if you find a routine that works well for you and your family, it will make the chore more manageable and efficient!
SIMPLIFY YOUR SORTING
A key element in maintaining the laundry process is to develop a system for sorting the clothes. You want to ensure that your system is orderly and easy to follow. Sterilite's Weave Laundry Hampers can help with this! Create a sorting station in the laundry room utilizing three hampers, designating one for darks, lights, and colors. When each family member brings in their dirty clothes, they can sort them into the appropriate hampers saving you time and effort on laundry day.
ENLIST THE KIDS TO HELP
Even if your kids are not old enough to operate the washer and dryer by themselves, they can still do their part. Kid's clothes can get out of control so quickly! Therefore, it is important to designate a place in each child's room for dirty laundry and make sure they know where that spot is. Sterilite's 1.75 Bushel Ultra™ Laundry Basket is perfect for this. The square design makes it easy for children of any age to carry, while not taking up too much floor space in the bedroom. Get your kids in the routine of putting their dirty laundry in the basket, and not on the floor. Once the basket is full, the kids can bring their dirty clothes to the laundry room and sort them accordingly.
ORGANIZE THE LAUNDRY SUPPLIES
Doing laundry will be quicker and easier if your supplies are well organized and easy to find. To keep a coordinated look in the laundry room, try utilizing our Weave Baskets to match your Hampers. Our Tall Weave Basket is ideal for storing laundry detergent and fabric softener. Contain your smaller laundry items such as dryer sheets, lint rollers, and ironing supplies in the Short Weave Basket. If your socks are frequently separated when doing laundry, try using our Small Weave Basket as a temporary home. When the matching sock makes its way through the wash, it will be easy to pair them up. Not only will your laundry room be organized, it will be stylish too.
Laundry is a never-ending chore, but with a sound system and some help from your family, it will be a little more manageable!
