My son is wheelchair dependent, so his ability to participate in basement laundry is limited. I have, however, worked hard to teach him to take off his clothes so they’re not inside out. This isn’t something I do. In fact I’ve always folded and put away my own clothes however they come.
This month though I’ve been paying attention and I noticed how much easier, how much time I save with his clothes. Then I thought about how hard it would be, how long it would take in my evening routine to remove my own clothes right side out. THEN I thought about how much time I’d save, folding my clothes, finding my clothes, and getting dressed in the morning if I wasn’t always turning my clothes around. AHA! Baby steps and routines save time!
So my laundry tip: remove your clothes so that they go into the laundry right way around.
Thanks for all your support!
