What’s your laundry routine?

There’s nothing quite like a fresh set of t-shirts perfectly folded and stacked politely on the bed. The next time you’re sorting through your intimates, consider there might be a better approach to your laundry routine. These helpful tips could save you, money, time, and work!

  1. Clean your Dryer Vent

Stuffed-up dryer vents can cause fires, but most of us never think of examining the vent from the outside on a regular basis. To do so, carefully lift up the vent flaps and clean it out. A regular cleaning of your outdoor dryer vent keeps your home safe and ensures that your machine works as well as it can.

  1. Improv Drying Rack

Running the dryer increases your electric bill. If you can wait a few extra hours for your clothes to dry, create a makeshift drying rack in the basement or laundry room. This will especially come in handy during the winter season. You or your kids will need a place to hang your snow-drenched clothes after a day of winter fun!

  1. Starch Substitutes

Do you need to stiffen that loose shirt collar but you’re out of starch? Make your own by pouring 2 cups of water into a jar and adding 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Close the lid tightly and shake well. Pour the solution into a spray bottle and use the next time you iron.

  1. Use a Mesh Bag For Your Intimates

The washing machine sometimes doesn’t know how to handle your delicate clothing. Pack them into a mesh bag to keep them from being torn or wrapped into other articles of clothing. Use the mesh bag for your socks as well, and you’ll never lose another one again!

  1. Keep Your Sweaters in Shape

We’re officially well into sweater season here in Maryland. Hanging them on a hanger to dry can cause them to become misshapen. Keep your sweaters in shape by drying them on a flat drying rack or any flat surface.

  1. Keep Whites Their Whitest

The trick to keeping whites bright it to wash them separately in hot water. Fill a pot with water and a few lemon slices, bring to a boil, turn off the heat and add linens. Soak for an hour or so and voila! You’ll have fresh white sheets that will stay bright for many uses to come.
