Laundry day in Houston, Texas doesn't exactly get people excited to perform.
Bad news is, it is one of the chores that we can't really get rid of. Instead of avoiding laundry day, try these tips to help you manage your load and make the most of your time.

Instead of saving one day to do all of your laundry, break up your laundry by category and assign a day to that category. Lets say towels on Monday, bedding on Tuesday, etc.
Being proactive is much easier than dealing with the consequences of a washer or dryer issue. Instead of having to worry about cleaning your dryer, make it a routine to check pockets before every load. It is much easier to take an extra minute to double check than scrub out whatever may stain an entire load of laundry.
Pre-sorting your laundry will save you the time that is often wasted digging through your baskets to find what can be washed together. Be sure to carefully pre-sort, so you can avoid ruining any clothing.
Cleaning out your lint trap after each cycle will not only reduce a fire risk, but it will also help your dryer run more efficiently.
Instead of worrying about taking the time to steam your clothing, do so while they’re in the dryer. If you add a few ice cubes into a light load of clothing while your dryer is on the highest heat setting, the ice will melt and produce steam.
While this may not be the first thing you think of when trying to make laundry day easier, decluttering your closet can make a huge difference in how much laundry you will actually need to do overall. Clothing we don't love tends to end up tossed on the floor and washed again and again without ever being worn out of the front door.
