It's so simple to chuck everything into a laundry basket before heading to the laundromat. Thus, someone is left with the arduous chore of subsequently picking through unclean clothes and attempting to categorize them.

Worse yet, toss them all in the laundry and cross your fingers. You may finish up with technically clean clothes, but you will pay the price in faded, dingy slacks.

Here are some practical ways to deal with your laundry:

1. Pre-treat Your Stains

Soak your heavily soiled items in a pail filled with hot water, detergent, and a laundry stain remover. Let them sit overnight and launder them as usual in the morning.

Always use the proper amount of detergent. Too little, and your clothes will not get clean. Too much, and they will be left with a foul odor.

2. The More Laundry Baskets, the Better

Never let the dirty clothes get mixed with the clean ones. Make it a habit to wash laundry separately and keep it separate until they are all dry. This may require you to get two laundry baskets or more. Additionally, you should make it a habit to wash your laundry basket as well.

3. Don't Just Toss Them in the Hamper

Fold dirty clothes as you put them in the hamper. This will keep them from wrinkling before they get a chance to hit the dryer. It will also allow you to see if you have bills, coins, and trinkets stuck in your pockets.

4. Create a Laundry Schedule

Always wash clothes on a specific day or in a set order. This need not be rigid, but it should be consistent. If you follow the same pattern every week, you can develop a habit of not forgetting to wash them.

Moreover, never let laundry pile up to the point that you cannot do it in one day. If you have to, break them down into groups and do them consecutively. When our schedules are packed somehow, you can always look for a drop-off laundry service to assist you. 

5. Choose the Laundry You Can Fold First, and Those That Need Ironing

Our busy schedules often prevent us from doing many things we would like to do. The laundry is no exception. If you are in too much of a rush to fold clothes and put them away, put them in the dryer for folding later.

It's best to flat dry your clothes on hangers. You can achieve this by purchasing the wooden type that clamps onto a door or a clothesline.

6. Use a Laundry Marker to Identify Items That Need Special Attention

Be honest about what needs to be hand-washed, especially for more delicate clothing. Use a laundry marker to label items that need special attention. While it may cost you extra, it will save you a lot of potential headaches.


How you wash clothes is just as important as how often you wash them. Many people tend to toss everything into the washer and dryer and hope for the best. Not only does this create a giant mess, but it also doesn't clean your clothes very well.
