After reading ‘Simplify’ I keep looking at how I can make various aspects of my life as simple as possible. The laundry is one example.
I have previously written about tips and tricks for the laundry as well as organisation.
We do not need umpteen different cleaning agents or hair products and the same goes for washing clothes. This shows all of my laundry products in 2 small racks inside the cupboard door.
In the top rack is pre-soak which I use occasionally, box of Sunlight soap and the washing liquid. Half a capful of liquid is all I need for a load of washing in my front-loading machine. I use Sunlight soap in a soap saver for most of the hand-washing that I do or rarely a couple of drops of the laundry liquid.
The bottom rack has a cut-down container and tablespoon which I use to measure the pre-soak and dissolve it before adding to a bucket of hot water. I have a bar of Sard Wonder soap which I store in the container. Beside this is a partly used container of Napisan which is from when I was soaking cloth nappies for my young grand-daughter. She no longer wears nappies but I have kept the Napisan as it can be useful for soaking to remove stubborn stains. Once it is used up I will not replace it.
