Remember over a year ago I received a brand new washing machine and dryer from Whirlpool and they are still going strong and saving me time. Currently they are saving me even more time because my husband likes them so much he’s doing the laundry. He even instituted a new laundry procedure that keeps the laundry off my couch and clean and put away where it belongs.
Want to know the rules?
Clothing must be put in the laundry room – the kids have to put their laundry in the laundry room. He does try to find their clothes but my daughter just learned yesterday that if she doesn’t put her clothes in the laundry room they won’t get clean. She wanted to wear one of her new dresses today to school and she couldn’t because she never put it in the laundry room. Saves me time because their rooms are cleaner and I don’t have to remind them.
Sorting Clothes depends on who does laundry – my husband and I both sort laundry differently. I do purple pink and red, blue green and gray, jeans and whites while everything else falls into one of those categories. My husband does bright colors. reds darks jeans whites towels and light colors. He does much more sorting than I do and guess what, the machine has settings for both of us.
From the Washer to the Dryer – once laundry begins you must make sure it goes from the washing machine to the dryer. The good thing is that this washing machine, The Whirlpool duet, has a keep fresh setting so if you can’t get to it right away the washer keeps it fresh so you don’t have to rewash, saving about an hour and a half of time.
From the Dryer to away – His best rule yet. If you start a load you finish it, fold it and put it away. He’s amazing at doing it and told me that if I decide to help I have to follow the rules and I’ve been following the rules. It’s been so wonderful, now I don’t have to spend a Saturday on the couch having a laundry folding fest with the whole family.
So the key message is organization simplifies my life. I wonder if someone could help me get organized in other areas of my life as well.
How do your appliances simplify your life?
