There are a few laundry tips to make it simpler, though:
When your children come in caked in dirt, get them to change and clean straight away. That way the dirty clothes are all in one place. Don’t stop there, though, chuck them into the washing machine immediately with a good portion of Tide – stick to the dosing guidelines, though.
Also, while you should always wash a full load, very dirty clothes and just slightly dirty ones shouldn’t go together. So, don’t worry if it’s not a completely full wash just this once, you can always use the half load function.
