As you are most likely aware, I live in a six person household. Four of them being little girls. Each kid can sometimes go through three outfits in a day, between wardrobe changes, spilled food, and inevitable play-dirt, laundry piles up quick, fast, and in a hurry around my house. I’ve never been a laundry aficionado, and have even been known to go out and buy new underwear rather than wash my clothes, but when I stop doing laundry with a six person household, it gets a little ridiculous. I’ve a few simple laundry tips and tricks to share, but the biggest win, I think, is how Purex has made life a
little bit lot easier by allowing me to stop sorting!
It’s scary over here.
1| Treat stains as soon as possible. It really is the cardinal rule of clothing care, and it helps so much. I try to not let a stain sit overnight, and the easiest way to combat it is running the stain under a hot faucet until it disappears. Nine times out of ten I can get rid of the stain completely just by putting it in the sink and letting the hot water flow.
2| Blue dish soap is your best friend. Seriously. When you find that stain you forgot about and are so angry that your clothing is ruined, try some blue dish soap. Get the spot wet and just rub that dish soap into the stain for a minute or so before tossing in the washer and you’ll be amazed at how many articles of clothing you won’t have to throw away.
3| Stop sorting. I know you’ve been taught it’s best to sort out all your laundry, but it takes so much time, and I know I’m not the only one who ends up with uneven loads, or loads to small to wash. With Purex No Sort detergent the rules have changed! With their Anti-Color-Transfer Technology, Purex traps loose dyes in the wash and keeps them from depositing onto other fabrics, which is pretty awesome, I think.
It was just a couple of months ago that I bought a cute, new tank top and one day it came out of the wash with a dark blue stain all over it. I was devastated.
I washed it again and again trying to get it out, but alas, my new favorite shirt was ruined.
Now, Purex No Sort detergent is packed with innovation, but it can’t perform miracles, so please follow these words of advice: wash strongly colored fabrics or new pieces of clothing, especially jeans, separately at least 5 times before doing a mixed color load with Purex No Sort detergent.
4| Wash everything on a light, delicate cycle. Unless your clothes are caked in mud and debris and the craziest stains known to man, there is little reason to wash your clothes on any other cycle. It saves water, electricity, and your clothes.
5| Enlist help! My kids may be little but they love to pick up clothes from the floor, pull them out of the dryer, and fold them. The more, the merrier, it’ll make the whole laundry business a lot more fun, and time will go by faster, I promise. And in all honesty, I used to fuss over how my clothes were folded, but then I realized that I’m not folding clothes for others to see, so who cares how they look in drawers!
