Would you believe me if I told you that I have not done my own laundry since I was 19 years old! I heard on Jenna Kutcher's podcast the other day that outsourcing can make your life run more efficiently. So let's just say I have been outsourcing my laundry duties for the past 13 years. Unfortunately my laundry lady charges $10 bucks per comforter! And I am all for paying for convenience but that is a bit much for my budget savvy self.
My next best option is going to my local laundromat and washing all of my comforters myself. The only problem is, I hate it! Ugh laundromat trips, no matter how quick you try to make them, they take forever. So here are my 3 Lazy Girl tips, cause honestly, ain't nobody got time for that!
I know, I know why go more often if I dislike the place so much. Here is the thing the longer you hold off on your laundromat visit, the more that will need to be washed. Well, the more that needs to be washed, the longer you will be at the laundromat. And I don't know about you, but I am trying to be in and out of there in under an hour!
Sort at Home
I sort my comforters at home. Using laundry bags, I divide my comforters into 3 bags; one for lights, darks, and one for colors(colorful/mixed colors). This way when I get in the laundromat, I can head over to the closest 3 empty washers, and load them. No extra time wasted in there sorting laundry out.
Use an all in 1 Detergent
My go-to, Tide Pods Plus Downy! Gone are the days of lugging around laundry detergent, spot remover, softener, and dryer sheets. Each Tide PODS® packet is 4-in-1 including laundry detergent, stain remover, color protector, and Downy Fabric Protect technology. They are conveniently packaged and easy to carry in and out of the laundromat.
Like any other household cleaning product, laundry packets need to be handled with great care to prevent unintended exposure. While at the laundromat and even at home, to keep children safe around laundry packets, follow this simple rule: Keep Them Up, Keep Them Closed and Keep Them Safe.
To ensure you get the best results when using the Tide Pods packets, always place the packets in the machine before your clothes. They dissolve in both hot and cold water so no need to worry about the temperature setting. They also work in both high-efficiency and regular washers.
Tide PODS® are small but powerful. They pack more cleaning power due to their innovative, multi-chamber design that separates key ingredients until they hit the wash for maximum cleaning power.
I throw in 2 packets in each washer, then dry each comforter individually for 20 mins, and I am outta of there in less than an hour with clean, fluffy bed spreads.
Tide PODS® Plus Downy packets have the signature Downy April Fresh Scent for outstanding freshness and softness that both you and your family will enjoy.
**Bonus Tip: When I get home, in true Lazy Girl fashion, I "put the laundry away" by sticking the whole laundry bag in the closet until I am ready to use it.
