Less chores, more life. That’s everyone’s dream, right? Well, luckily we share that view. You can spend less time doing your laundry and more time doing the things you love. You can enjoy a good book, curled up in the corner, or go to the mall, shopping with friends, but whatever you do, enjoy it to the fullest.
Organize your schedule so you can plan in advance to save time, then stick to it. Don’t cheat and leave things for later, though!
Before the wash
When you take off your clothes, drop them straight into the laundry basket. Best is if you have more than one: a different basket for whites, for colors and for delicates*, or just use one compartmented basket.
*Your satin shirts, undergarments, abayas, silks and anything else that requires extra attention.
Know your washing machine
Not every washing machine is the same. Check your manual and learn the basics: know the symbols on your machine, how to protect and maintain it, learn the cycles, so you get the best possible wash, and learn how to save electricity, water – and so, probably a lot of money. Know your machine and it will serve you well.
Know your laundry symbols
Don’t worry, they’re not gibberish! Laundry symbols will make your laundry easier, once you know what they mean! The best trick is: print them out and stick them by your washing machine.
Don’t put too much detergent in your wash, it can leave unwanted marks all over your clothes. Too little and you may as well not bother even washing! So check the dosage instructions on your pack first! Then you’ll never need to rewash. With Tide, you don’t even need that much detergent, it’s efficient with less extra steps.
Locked and loaded
Make sure you fill your machine but don’t overload it. The “one palm trick” is useful: if you can fit your palm facing up, and nothing else, your machine is full. If it doesn’t fit, take something out - not the detergent!
Use the right detergent
Getting the right detergent is the most important thing, and choosing Tide, the effective laundry detergent, will give you brilliant cleaning for all your loads. So doing laundry becomes simpler.
Don’t worry, be happy and let Tide do it!
