In case you missed anything, here’s a recap of last week’s adventure:
Wet Bucket: don’t miss the update on this one or you might end up with a really stinky wet bucket!
Homemade Laundry Detergent: Just this week it has worked on a blowout onto sheets, river mud and watermelon. Pretreated with some Fels, it took car grease out of a white hat, too!
Line Drying: A friend (Courtney B) and my Mom both gave me the same helpful hint—throw line-dried clothes into the dryer for a few minutes to eliminate stiffness.
Sorting and Putting Away: If only motivation to do this was so easy to come by…
I just realized I promised a technique for folding T-shirts, but didn’t deliver. I know you were biting your nails and losing sleep over it. Well, wish and wonder no more! I learned this from my dear friend Bethany.
Lay T-shirt face down. I do this step holding it up, but it’s easier to take pictures of it lying down. However you do it, you want to fold the t-shirt face out.
Fold in one sleeve and then the other
For a long-sleeved t-shirt, just fold the sleeve back and down so that lays vertical on the shirt.
Fold in half bottom to top
Fold in half again bottom to top
Now put your t-shirts in the drawer with the fold facing up
This process makes up to 3 times more t-shirts fit into one drawer! You can also see all of your t-shirts and tell which is which without rooting through the drawer and messing up all the shirts left behind. I will never go back to the old way. When NR was little and had tons of onesies, I folded them in half and placed them fold-up in her drawer so I could see all of them, too.
Well, that’s a wrap for “Laundry Week”! Thanks for coming along for the ride!
