5 Tips to Make Doing Laundry Easier and More Fun!

Steven Hutchinson

Doing laundry doesn’t have to suck. Here are 5 fast tips to make the time in front of the washer and dryer way more enjoyable:

1. Connect, really connect with family and friends. Hey, instead of squeezing in fast calls or texts, take the time to actually chat with someone you like a lot for the full washer cycle. And then pick your second favorite person and do the same during the dryer cycle. Turn laundry time into quality friend time!

2. Listen to your favorite music. You may want to create your “laundry playlist” that turns the chore of doing laundry into an upbeat experience. Let’s face it, listening to your favorite music is one of the best ways to pump up your mood and spirit no matter what you’re doing!

3. Netflix and ... laundry. If you’ve got a lot of laundry to do, you could actually watch a big chunk of Orange is the New Black. What’s better than a Sunday in your yogawear watching Netflix … and doing laundry?

4.  Let loose your creativity. A simple laundry routine can be so peaceful. So use that uncluttered time to let your mind wander, and some amazing ideas may be born. Just make sure to jot them down so you don’t forget them later!

5. Exercise. Take the time between cycles and loads to get in your workout—run the stairs, do crunches—before you know it, the clothes you’re washing won’t fit anymore ... and not because they shrunk!

How do you make doing laundry more fun? Enjoy!

Why are softeners so bad for your laundry, especially your activewear?

Steven Hutchinson

Who doesn't love laundry to come out of the dryer smelling Spring fresh and soft as a baby bunny? This must mean everything is clean, right? Unfortunately, ordinary laundry detergents and softeners make matters worse. These traditional laundry products add a coating of fragrance and softening agents to the fabrics that clog the threads and trap the odor-causing bacteria.

Chemical softeners are designed to affect the clothing by making the threads "stand up" and feel softer. The fabric may feel softer but it comes at the expense of losing UV protection and anti bacterial capabilities. The industry calls this a “sour wash” because of the acidic additives. The acids soften the water but are dangerous to people, pets, and the environment.
 
Instead of modifying the fabric, truSheet uses vitamin B-12 to naturally soften your clothes by removing from the water the harmful iron and other minerals. This also changes the ionic charge of the water, which controls static. Since the sheet maintains an even stronger ionic charge, it continues to control static as you transfer it to the dryer with your laundry.

Laundry pods pose serious threat to children.

Recent reports have highlighted the dangers that laundry pods pose to kids, such as coma, trouble breathing, heart problems, and even death. Kids swallowing laundry pods has led to a skyrocketing number of poison cases in the ER--30 calls a day, which is about one call every 45 minutes. People don't realize how toxic these highly concentrated laundry packets are," said Dr. Marcel J. Casavant, "it isn't worth the risk when there is a safer and effective alternative available." This is not a recent problem. Between 2012 and 2013, there were 17,230 reports of children aged 6 and younger who had swallowed or inhaled the pods. In 2015, Consumer Reports made the decision to exclude laundry pods from their list of recommended laundry detergents due to these risks.
