Place cheap laundry baskets in every part of the house where someone changes – such as bedrooms and the bathrooms. That way, laundry ends up in an easy-to-carry basket and not all over your home.
Have three large laundry baskets in the laundry room for easy sorting: one for light colors, one for dark and one for towels. This allows you to quickly and easily sort your laundry.
Once you have all your clothes sorted, you can now focus on washing them. Set regular times to do loads of laundry so that it becomes a routine and not a chore that sneaks up on you in never-ending piles. The larger your family, the more often you will need to do laundry.
Even clean laundry can make the house feel messy if it is constantly disorganized and left all over the house. To solve this, place shelves in your laundry room or use color-coded laundry baskets to hold each family member's clothing as you fold the clothes from the dryer. This allows you or any member of your family to easily distribute the clean laundry to the appropriate bedrooms, where the owner of the clothes can put them away in the proper closet or drawers.
For large families, try to get everyone involved to do the laundry as quick and efficient as possible. Small children can match the socks and help carry clothes, while older children may enjoy doing their own laundry. Teach children from a young age about using the right amount of detergent, check pockets and reading clothes tags.
