Hello my name is Allison. I am the mother of four boys ages 5, 3, and 20 month old twins. As you can imagine keeping up with the laundry in our house can seem like a full time job. Thanks to laundry tips my mom taught me growing up and experimenting with what works best for me I have developed a good system. I’m excited to share my laundry tips and tricks as part of Spring Cleaning here at Gluesticks.
I am a hands on mom with a firm belief in the value of messy play. With messy play comes messy clothes. Would you believe that I have never met a stain I can’t get out?
My kids are almost always covered in paint, glue, glitter, food coloring, dirt, or food. It comes with the territory with young children.
Believe it or not I do not stress about the mess when we are doing an activity, because I know the tools that will gets the stains clean without fading clothes.
In my Laundry Tips and Tricks post you will find:
- suggestions for a laundry routine
- pitfalls to avoid
- sorting suggestions
- detergent recommendations
- stain prevention and treatment
Theselaundry tipshaven’t failed me yet! Let me leave you with the most important tip for stain removal: Do not dry clothing until the stain is gone. Dried stains are set stains. Even the toughest stains can come out as long as they aren’t heat dried.
