Sometimes it can feel like we have an endless laundry list of chores to take care of around the house, and laundry is one of them. And as we start to bundle up, put on more layers and continue to swap out masks daily, it’s important to work smarter, not harder.
Here are some easy tips to help you reduce your time in the laundry room and keep your clothes looking brand new.
- Preparation is key – purchase a multi-bag laundry hamper for you and your kids. This way, when it’s time to throw things in the laundry, clothes can be sorted with little-to-no effort.
- Skip the detergent measuring. Did you know if you use too much detergent in your washer it can actually make your clothes dirtier? With Whirlpool’s load and go feature, simply add detergent once and skip refills and measuring, so you get the perfect amount of detergent for each and every load, meaning you never have to worry about too much detergent again.
- Use mesh laundry bags for small and delicate items like face masks to ensure they don’t get lost in a pant leg or damaged during the cycle.
- There’s nothing worse than staining your favourite new shirt. Avoid wasting your time soaking and scrubbing day-old stains, instead look for a washer that will fight the stains for you. While some stains dissolve best in hot water and others in cold, a Maytag washer can fight both in a single load with its extra power button feature with dual-temperature wash. Easily transfer loads from washer to dryer and from dryer to laundry basket without worrying about clean clothes falling on the floor by getting a dryer with a hamper door.
Most importantly, picking a washing machine and dryer that do the hard work can help you spend more time with your family and less time doing laundry. Look for Wi-Fi capabilities so you can be notified as soon as your laundry is done, and you never have to worry about forgetting a load in the washer or dryer again.
