Laundry can be a daunting task if it starts to pile up, but it doesn’t have to be! There are several effective methods to help remove dirt, sweat, and odor-causing bacteria from your clothes, especially soiled bedding or gym clothes. Adding baking soda or a laundry booster to your load of laundry can help neutralize odor-causing acids. Whenever possible, it’s highly recommended to opt for natural detergents and cleaners.

Here’s our Everything Laundry Guide:

  • Washing: When it comes time to wash, make sure to follow the care label on your clothing. Use the appropriate water temperature and cycle for each load of laundry. Cold water is best for delicate items, while hot water is best for towels and bedding.

    Sorting: Before you start washing, sort your clothes by color and fabric type. It makes it a quicker and easier job when laundry day comes around. This will prevent colors from bleeding and help extend the life of your clothes. If you don’t have the space for separate bins, you can try using different laundry bags to sort your clothes into the same bin. 
  • Detergent: Choose a detergent that’s appropriate for your clothes and the type of washing machine you have. Look for detergents that are designed for your specific needs, such as high-efficiency (HE) detergents for front-loading machines or detergents for sensitive skin. High-efficiency machines use less water and require less detergent, while traditional machines need more. After you’ve added your preferred detergent, toss in a cap full of vinegar to get rid of pesky stains and to freshen up your clothes. And no, it doesn’t leave your clothes smelling of any vinegar. 
  • Stains: Treat stains as soon as possible for the best chance of removal. Apply a stain remover to the affected area and let it sit for a few minutes before washing. There are many products on the market specifically designed for stain removal, but you can also use household items like vinegar, baking soda, and dish soap. To revive dull garments and brighten up your clothes, add a cup of baking soda or colour-safe bleach into the wash.

  • Gym Clothes and shoes: Washing gym clothes as soon as possible after wearing them, ideally every day, prevents the buildup of bacteria and sweat. Additionally, using everyday household items like distilled white vinegar and baking soda combined with the right laundry detergent can help clean and disinfect workout clothes. It is also important to avoid too much heat in the dryer, as it can cause gym clothes to shrink, stretch, or lose their shape. Sprinkling a little baking soda in your sneakers can also help reduce odors.
  • Water temperature: Different fabrics require different water temperatures. Check the care label on your clothes to determine the appropriate temperature. Generally, hot water is best for whites and heavily soiled items, while cold water is best for dark colors and delicate fabrics.
  • Drying: Pay attention to the care label when deciding how to dry your clothes. Some items can be tumble dried on low heat, while others need to be air-dried.

    Use a low heat setting for delicate items and a high heat setting for towels and other heavy items. Remove clothes from the dryer promptly to prevent wrinkles. Be sure to empty the lint trap in your dryer after each use to prevent a fire hazard. If you’ve run our of dryer sheets, you can simply scrunch up some foil into a ball and chuck it in with your clothes. The aluminium ball reduces static inside the dryer and makes your clothes and towels feel extra fluffy.

  • Hanging: Clothes should be hung immediately after the dry cycle is over. While the clothes are still super warm, they will smooth out while hanging so you don’t have to iron. 
  • Ironing: Ironing isn’t always necessary, but it can help improve the appearance of your clothes. Be sure to adjust the temperature of your iron based on the fabric type and use a pressing cloth to prevent scorching.
  • Folding and Storing: Once your clothes are clean and dry, it’s time to fold and store them. Fold clothes neatly to prevent wrinkles and keep them organized in your drawers or closet. Hang clothing that should not be folded, such as dresses or suits, on hangers.

By following these tips, you’ll be a laundry pro in no time! You can make the process easier and even enjoyable. Remember to sort your clothes, treat stains, choose the right detergent, follow care labels, and fold and store your clothes properly. With a little effort, your laundry will be clean and fresh in no time!
