I am not a cleanie by nature. But, I love to have a clean house. It frees me up to do the things that I do love. However, laundry is one of the household tasks I actually enjoy. Yeah, call me crazy. There is something therapeutic about seeing a mess of stinky Boy clothes transformed into nice neat stacks. Even if the nice neat stacks last about 32 seconds.
A couple things that my mom taught me many moons ago about laundry:
- Starched and ironed pillowcases feel divine.
- It’s better to match socks as they come through the dryer than to let them pile up in number until they fill a duffle bag that could weigh down the brawniest of seamen. Yeah, you make me laugh, Mom.
- Folding fitted sheets is not only easy, but makes your cupboards look so much nicer.
In case you never learned how to fold a fitted sheet, here’s my brief tutorial.
I used a crib sheet in this example, but if you need to see it larger than a baby bed, let me know and me and my trusty camera man will go back to work.
This works for me. How about you?
