Fall Laundry Tips and Tricks

This is one of the busiest times of the year for many families. We have just survived the “back to school” hustle and bustle. School schedules and sports activities combined with our regular routine really step up our normal laundry routine. This can cause loads of extra time trying to keep up with the families never-ending laundry in Raleigh NC. This post will address ways in which you can establish a routine that will help you stay on top of the extra work and get on to things that are more fun with your family.

Our first tip for your fall laundry in Raleigh NC needs involves establishing the very best routine you can for doing the laundry. This means developing a schedule for the entire family and getting them involved. All members of the family from youngest to oldest are able to take on various steps in getting their own laundry done. For the ones old enough assign a specific day for them to do their own laundry. The youngest are certainly able to help get the dirty laundry into a basket and may be able to help with folding and putting away.

Stain removal is one of the most important parts of a laundry routine. It is even more important in the fall when stains are made early in the day and must be treated as soon as possible. The first step in a good stain removal process is to have a stain remover readily available to treat those pesky stains. This can be a great commercial type remover or one you have made yourself. The key is to make certain every family member treats the stains ASAP or points them out to you.

If your kids play sports then their uniforms will need special treatment. Perspiration is always a problem and can leave the uniform pretty stinky if it is not addressed quickly. Train your athletes to empty their gym bag or to change out of the uniform quickly. The uniform needs to go straight into the washer as quickly as possible. Use a good laundry detergent and also treat any ground in dirt or grass stains before laundering. Check to see the stains are removed before drying. If possible line dry the uniforms to reduce wear and tear on the fabric.

We cannot stress enough the need to look at the tags in your clothing items and read. This is where you will find information on how to wash and dry your clothing. If you are not familiar with the laundry symbols, educate yourself. This is the safest way for you to get the most out of your garments. When the fabrics are treated in the right way the result will be that you will save time and most of all money as you get this laundry chore done.
