A Year Without Laundry: Find Out How You Can Win With Tide Cleaners

Imagine, for a moment, a life with no laundry. That’s right – one without an overflowing hamper, piles of clothes scattered here and there and on “the chair”, an alternate reality where a family member isn’t asking if you’ve seen his or her favorite pair of jeans recently.

Laundry is truly a never-ending chore. No matter how much you get done, there is always more… it’s an ever-revolving door of tasks. Wash. Try not to forget about the clothes in the wash. Dry. Don’t leave the clothes for too long so they won’t become wrinkly. Set the dryer again because you waited too long. Fold clothes. Take three days to put them away, and repeat indefinitely!

These five laundry tips will help your wash proceed with ease. Keep reading to find out how you can enter for a chance win a free YEAR of Tide Cleaners laundry service. Yes, really!

Five Simple Laundry Hacks

  1. Properly launder a stuffed animal. Oh-oh! Your little one’s prized possession has suffered from a spill. Or worse yet, you’re wondering to yourself if the comfort item has ever actually been washed. Don’t worry! Here’s how to get it done and not damage the stuffie. First, read the toy’s care label for special instructions. Next, make sure that the toy is free of batteries, foam filler balls, or electronics; these items will need to be surface washed only. Pre-treat stained stuffed animals by applying Tide detergent on the stain and allowing it to sit for up to 10 minutes. Put the item in the machine on a gentle cycle using cold water. When it’s all finished up, hang to dry.
  2. Separate your whites, lights, and darks. Sorry, millennials – your mom was right about this. Separating laundry by color is a good idea to prevent transference (especially if you’re washing in warm or hot water). Keep in mind clothes should also be separated by fabric types; this extra caution will help your garments last longer and stay nicer.
  3. Save drying time with a clean towel. In a pinch for time? Place a clean, dry towel in the dryer with your next load. It will speed up the process as it helps to efficiently dry the wet clothes.
  4. Never lose another sock. Mesh bags aren’t just reserved for delicate fabrics and lingerie; they’re great for washing socks. Grab a large one and store it near your laundry hamper. Simply toss the socks in there after they’re worn, and then wash the bag on laundry day. Folding your clothes will be a breeze, and you won’t be stuck with a couple of lonely socks at the end.
  5. Purge pollen stains. Spring has sprung and with it comes some environmental nuisances. If you’re unfortunate enough to acquire a pollen stain on your clothes, follow these simple steps: first, rinse the garment in cold water to dilute the stain. Put Tide Ultra Stain Release Liquid onto the area. Let it sit for five minutes. Put the item into the wash without rinsing off the detergent first, and launder normally. Wash on the hottest setting possible.
