This is a partnered post on behalf of H-E-B. While I was provided a store gift card to purchase Bravo Plus laundry detergent, all opinions and experiences remain my own.
As a mom, I do a lot of cleaning. It comes with the territory. And with all of the cleaning I've done and continue to need to do, I definitely have chores that aren't so bad and those that I loathe doing.
Laundry is one of the chores I just can't stand to do. I don't know where my issue with laundry lies. I like having fresh, clean clothes but I hate all that's involved with the task from start to finish. Laundry is one chore that you can never catch up with.
Fortunately in my 20 years of doing laundry, I've come up with these 3 tips that make laundry day go a bit smoother for me and hopefully for you too.
- Forget laundry day. I used to save all my laundry and try to get it done on just one day, but it never failed. It was just too big of a task and I'd drop the ball and never get the entire thing done. Now thanks in part to a septic system which does not allow me to do too many loads in a single day, I split things up over the course of the week making things much more manageable.
- Pretreat. Make an effort to pretreat stains as soon as you can to avoid the possibility of them setting. And you don't always need a separate pre-treater, you can use a small amount of detergent like the new Bravo Plus laundry detergent which has four powerful enzymes to help break down and eliminate tough stains and odors.
- Don't overload the washing machine. Overloading the machine means things will be packed in there with no room to move around causing wrinkles. Wrinkles = ironing. Save yourself the agony of ironing and just split your load up.
