Teaching your kids to do laundry feels like a milestone every parent longs for. To reap the benefits of extra hands doing the housework, you must put a little time into teaching them the process first. With these steps and tips below, you’ll have your family team flying through their laundry piles in no time!
Sort It Out
The first and a very vital step is learning how to sort the dirty laundry. Walk them through the guidelines of how and why you separate your laundry. Extra tip: Make it fun by creating a timed race, to see who can do it the fastest!
Hot or Cold? Normal or Heavy Duty?
Your temperature and wash settings for a cycle can make or break the efficiency of your wash. Explain the different selections and when to use them so that your kids become as efficient as possible at the laundry chore. Extra tip: Turn this into a quiz as you go through your laundry hampers. Let the winner have the honor of pushing the start button!
The Home Stretch
The most dreaded portion of the whole process… folding. Many hands will make for light work in this labor-intensive step! Walk your kids through each type of garment and guide them on hanging, folding and putting away. Extra tip: Folding Olympics will surely motivate your kiddos! Give everyone a basket of similar items and have them race to fold them (or hang them!) correctly.
