4 Laundry Rules You Should Break

The laundry rules have changed. Ever since I started helping my mom with laundry, I was taught 4 basic laundry rules that I had to follow such as sorting laundry. In fact, as an adult it was hard to get out of that routine. Since I’m not a fan of laundry, I like to break the {laundry} rules if it means spending less time doing it. So today I’m sharing 4 laundry rules you should break. Give it a try, it will change your life.

4 Laundry Rules You Should Break

1. Assign a laundry basket to each family member.

I know this is something many families do. Typically, each family member gets a basket that they must either turn in on laundry day or be responsible for washing themselves.

Breaking the rule: Instead, I keep ONE large laundry basket in the laundry room for the entire family. Each family member is responsible for taking their dirty clothes to the basket each day. When it gets full, I know it’s time to do a load (normally one per day). It helps me save time since I don’t have to gather clothes from each family member. I also save money because I’m not doing several separate loads. As you can see after washing color clothes, I’m left with all whites and I’m not digging through several baskets trying to sort clothes out.

2. Wash clothes on full cycle.

Growing up, my mom taught me to keep the washer cycle setting at full or normal (wording depends on your washer). I think she was afraid I would break something so she kept it simple. Did I mention she used to wash clothes in a spring creek while she was growing up in Puerto Rico? It would take her and her sisters two full days to wash the family’s clothes. My mom had 11 siblings by the way. I guess I should be more grateful for the ability to wash clothes rather easily.

Breaking the rule: If the clothes are not heavily soiled, then choose a shorter or light cycle. It washes clothes just as good, takes up less time and will also save you money. The washer I currently own came with the house and it’s a bit older so it doesn’t have a full or normal cycle setting. However, it does have different time options. I choose half of what a full cycle would be and our clothes always come out clean.

3. Sort color clothes.

Most of us know the laundry sorting rules; Separate dark colors from light colors and so on.

Breaking the rule: Stop sorting! Yes, you read that right. Laundry users have believed that sorting is an essential part of their laundry routine for years. However, Purex® No Sort™ detergent has changed the rules. It allows you to wash color clothes together which means no sorting. The Anti-Color-Transfer Technology in Purex® No Sort™ traps loose dyes in the wash and does not let them settle onto other fabrics. Which means you are able to simplify your laundry routine by doing less sorting and less loads. I purchased mine at Walmart at a super affordable price. Double win.

Here’s a load I did this morning. There were very light color clothes and darks mixed in. The clothes came out clean and with zero color transfers. Not even dark fuzzies that tend to get on the lighter clothes.

“Purex® No Sort™detergent is packed with innovation, but it can’t perform miracles, so please follow these words of advice: wash strongly colored fabrics or new pieces of clothing, especially jeans, separately at least 5 times before doing a mixed color load with Purex® No Sort™ detergent.”

4. Iron clothes.

Iron clothes after washing. I truly don’t understand this one, but my mom irons every article of clothing. I didn’t inherit the ironing gene and she would probably be seriously disappointed with me if she knew that I rarely iron.

Breaking the rule: Instead of ironing, I hang up clothing shortly after I pull it from the dryer. I keep hangers near the dryer so I can easily hang them up. If it requires folding, I try to fold it in a way that will leave the least amount of creases. Bonus tip: If your laundry over dries and comes out really wrinkled, place it back in the dryer with a damp towel for about five minutes.

So there you have it, now go break some laundry rules and change your life. 🙂 You’ll be grateful you did when you realize how much extra time you have left. I don’t know about you, but I much rather spend my time creating memories with my family. Remember “Family over laundry”.
