Summer is here and one of the big changes I’m planning to tackle is getting my kids more involved in household chores. As most moms know, managing laundry takes a lot of time so I want to teach my girls to start doing their own laundry. I’ve created a fun and free printable that you can use if you too are trying to teach your kids to do laundry. And thanks to the new Purex® No Sort™ laundry detergent, they can do a load with no sorting!
Even as an adult I sometimes still wonder how to sort certain clothes. How do you teach a kid to sort a dark blue and white pair of shorts, or a hot pink and white shirt? Well, “The Rules Have Changed” and now we don’t need to worry about teaching our kids to sort their loads into light, dark, and who knows what. Purex® No Sort™ has Anti-Color-Transfer Technology which traps loose dyes in the wash and does not let them settle onto other fabrics. They do tell you to take note and “wash strongly colored fabrics or new pieces of clothing, especially jeans, separately at least 5 times before doing a mixed color load with Purex® No Sort™ detergent”.
I love it that my girls can do a load of laundry when the basket gets full. They don’t have to worry about sorting colors properly and that will mean less loads of laundry. I think this will also help encourage them to keep up on their chore, as they won’t get overwhelmed with multiple loads. Many of us have heard that doing a load of laundry a day helps keep the task manageable. For kids it could be a load a week, with each child having a special laundry day assigned.
If you use my free printable you can write the washer and dryer settings you’d like your kids to use underneath the steps where it says to set the dials. Then if you laminate it and put it in the laundry room your kids can follow the steps. You could also note the amount of detergent for them to add to the washer.
I can’t wait to get the girls started on their new #LaundrySimplified routine! I picked up my Purex® No Sort™ at my local Walmart in the laundry detergent aisle. If you’d like to learn more about Purex® No Sort™, follow the company on Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook.
What about your kids, are they doing their own laundry? Any chores you’ve taught them that have helped keep your home in order?
