Laundry Day Tips + Tricks

August 2, 2018

Hey guys! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I wanted to share a bit of my laundry routine with you. I have help with cleaning my home when my work schedule gets crazy, but we are always at work maintaining one part of the property or another. We’re constantly working towards improving and keeping everything tidy and operating smoothly.

I like to split my laundry schedule between two days. Doing bedding, linens, and towels in one day, and the rest of the clothes on another day. I wanted to share a few quick tips of mine that I use when doing my laundry.

TIP #1: Brighten Your Laundry with Lemon Juice

Did you know adding 1/4 cup of lemon juice to your wash cycle is an all-natural way to whiten your laundry? Not a fan of bleach? Give the natural route a try!

Tip #2: How to Keep Your Towels Fluffy

The more we wash our towels, the more detergent builds up and causes them to be stiff and scratchy. Adding some distilled white vinegar, and/or baking soda, to your wash cycle will help lift the built-up residue and restore your towels to their fluffy selves.

Tip #3: Use Fresh Herb Sachets

I love to add dried herbs to sachets to keep my laundry smelling fresh between washes. Here I’m using a little rosemary and eucalyptus I picked from my garden.  Place the sachet on your linens, inside your dresser drawers, or even under your pillow for the most terrific aroma that is 100% natural and FREE.

Tip #4: Use Aromatherapy Sleep Spray

A restful nights sleep is essential! One thing I love to do is to use an aromatherapy sleep mist on my bedding.  All it takes is distilled water, a few drops of sleep essential oil (can be substituted for lavender or chamomile essential oil), and a few drops of witch hazel. Shake it all up in a spray bottle and give your sheets a light misting. If you want to take it to the next level, you can even mist your sheets and then use a yardstick on a long flat object to run across the top of your bed.  This is how you get those perfectly pressed hotel sheets!
