5 Time-Saving Laundry Tips


Pre-Sort and Pre-Treat

If you have hampers dedicated to each of your laundry loads, then pre-sorting adds exactly zero time to your laundry routine – it is just as easy, after all, to drop your whites in the basket on the left and your delicates in the one on the right as it is to throw them all in together, and it saves precious time on laundry day when that part of the job is already done for you. Pre-treating stains may take a few extra minutes, but by attacking them as soon as they happen, you’ll save time in the long run (no more battling dried-on dirt and holding up the rest of the load).
