I’m never behind on my laundry. Why? So simple–I do a load of laundry each day.
I know that if I skip even one day, that the laundry starts to pile up and gets way out of control.
It doesn’t take a ton of "hands-on" time to do laundry. It only takes about 5 minutes to check and treat garments for stains, and to toss in and start a load. I get tons done during the wash cycle. I then toss the clothes in the dryer (and hang the delicates on a dryer rack). Again, tons more done while the dryer is in progress. Once the dryer cycle is done, the clothes are removed immediately.
The most time-consuming part, is folding the clothes after the dryer cycle is done. But even that takes 10 minutes or less.
So, all in all it takes about 15 minutes of hands-on time to do a load of wash. This is something most anyone can do.
Even if you have a larger family and must do two loads of laundry each day, that’s still only 30 minutes per day of hands-on time.
If you have a washer and dryer at home, and you’re always behind on laundry, follow the one-load-a-day system (or two-load-a-day system if necessary). Don’t skip any days. You’ll be able to keep up with your laundry, and never fall way behind.
By the way, when we go on vacation, we wash our clothes every few nights at our hotel. This is a huge time and stress saver when we return.
