How to Keep up With Laundry {with all free clear}

I am a busy Mom of four very active kids. I do a lot of laundry, believe me! 

Staying organized and keeping up with laundry can be daunting. I fall behind fast if I don't stay organized. No one wants to open the laundry room and find 8 loads of laundry waiting. On top of having lots of laundry to wash, several of my kids have allergies and sensitive skin.

I don't have the time or room to keep different laundry detergents on hand, so I started using all® free clear oxi laundry detergent and all® free clear fabric softener for everybody. It tackles all our toughest stains but is gentle enough for my sensitive kids. all free clear is the #1 recommended detergent brand by Dermatologists, Allergists, and Pediatricians for sensitive skin. Plus, it's safe for use in standard and HE machines. 

I trust all® free clear detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheets because they have received the National Eczema Association (NEA) Seal of Acceptance™. Products with the NEA Seal of Acceptance™ are those that avoid certain chemicals, dyes, perfumes and residues that are known to be unsuitable for use by persons with eczema or a sensitive skin condition. In fact, all® free clear detergent has only 9 ingredients!

But back to laundry.So, how do you stay on top it?

  • Set up for success! 
Place all your laundry supplies in a basket or on a shelf, so you have everything you need on hand!
With all® free clear oxi laundry detergent and all® free clear fabric softener, I have everything I need to tackle tough stains.

  • Do a little every day!
The first thing I do every morning is to switch on the coffee maker and to start a load of laundry. That way, I can move the laundry in the dryer before the kids get up and have enough time to fold it and put it away before I normally leave the house. I have learned that it is important to do laundry every day instead of saving it for the weekend or a specific day. When you do at least one load of laundry a day, you are less likely to fall behind. Try to find a time in your schedule that allows you to throw a load of laundry into the washer with enough time to move it to the dryer and fold it.

  • One load at a time
I used to wash 4 or 5 baskets of laundry a day, but then never had the time to fold it all and/or put it away. Which meant either heaps of wrinkled, unfolded laundry or several laundry baskets full of laundry waiting to be put away. Staring down 4 baskets of unfolded laundry can be daunting. My solution: One load at a time. I try to wash, dry, fold and put away a basket at a time instead of keeping all the machines running. That way, I feel less stressed and my house does not get cluttered with laundry. Try it! It really works for me!

  1. Great tips! I wish I could do a little each day, but we live in an apartment and the running around up and down just tires me out!

    1. Thank you, Nancy! Apartment living definitely requires a different laundry system. I used to have one of those large rocery carts to carry the laundry up and down ;) ~ Nina

  2. I'm laughing about the whole baskets of wrinkled clothes because THAT IS SO ME!! I think I might seriously just rewash the huge 3.5 foot tower of folded wrinkled clothes.

    1. Right, Laura? I have definitely rewashed stuff before - just to not have to iron it ;) ~ Nina

  3. Oh yes! It sure is a turning point! I had decided 3 weeks ago stop diving through unfolded socks and jammies and it sure changed my way of smile!! ^.^
