I’ve been enjoying your laundry tips, I especially liked the one about dealing with pairing socks.
I did as was recommended and took my increasing pile of ‘can’t be paired, awaiting its friend to appear pile’ and gave it all whites and colours a quick cool wash. Hey, presto, I got a 60% match rate, found it was much more fun pairing clean socks outside on the washing line.
I don’t own a tumble dryer, well one built into my washer but it never does the job like a separate big dryer.
So in the winter all shirts, and tops go straight onto their plastic hangers, up onto a rail, I use our small bathroom. Then I use a £100 desiccant type dehumidifier in the room, put it on laundry mode, and I can have three loads dry in 3-4 hours. Socks and smalls go on a hanging peg tree bought from a cheap store for about a £1.
Folding baskets also keep me sane!
A load ever day as you say, loving the tips from over the pond in the UK.
