Easiest Laundry Hack Ever!Holly By Heart
By Holly by Heart
How could I have been so stupid? It’s so obvious and yet I’ve been wasting my time for years! I got a bit fed up this week, fed up with the constant load of housework. The one that overwhelms me the most is washing clothes. If I don’t do it every other day, the baskets (yes, not one but two baskets of dirty clothes) overflow and get kicked around the floor.
So, I stopped. Just like that. I stopped washing clothes that didn’t need washing. Obviously socks, pants and anything dirty or smelly can be washed but a jumper can be worn a few times. Tshirt – just give it a sniff and it’s good to go for another day at least.
I know some people will say it’s disgusting but my goodness I’ve saved myself hours of washing already! Think of all that water, electricity, detergent (in a big plastic bottle – need to find an alternative to that) AND it apparently makes your clothes last longer. (Before you ask, I don’t have a drier – don’t like them.)
Perhaps all we need to do to make real change is lower our expectations. Not standards, you need those to be high, but expect less than perfect. None of this wear-once-because-someone-saw-a-pic-on-insta crap. If you love your clothes, treat them well, wear them well and don’t expect to your life to look like something out of a magazine. Spoiler: you’ll only be disappointed anyway!
