3 MORE LAUNDRY TIPS
Here are a few other of my favorite laundry tips to keep it looking good, toxin-free and fresh:
1. NOTHING BEATS THE SMELL OF LINE-DRIED CLOTHES.
In spring and summer and warmer fall days, I try to dry as much as I can outside and keep the dryer off. It is helpful for the environment and sometimes there is less ironing required, too. And, clothes that need a little brightening? The sun can do the trick!
2. WEAR CLOTHES MORE THAN ONCE.
A t-shirt you wore for a few hours while writing emails probably is clean enough to throw on another day. I have lived with teenagers and I think perhaps there is no portion of the population more guilty of adding to the laundry pile than teens who constantly change outfits. (Could it be easier to add it to the laundry basket than hang it up, perhaps?) I installed hooks in our closets for clothes that were only worn briefly that don’t belong in the hamper just yet and can be worn again. It helps cut down on the workload, too!
3. SEEK OUT ORGANIC DRY CLEANERS.
Organic dry cleaners are popping up everywhere. I have found one near my home that does a great job and no chemical odor at all!
