Rest Day and a Giveaway

Giveaway Closed - Congratulations to Christy M

Today was a rest day for me using the EA SPORTS ACTIVE More Workouts. However, one of my goals is to get exercise in everyday, as little as 15 minutes can make a difference. I actually tried out a couple of different exercises today- I did Billy Blanks Jr.'s Cardioke. This 30 minute workout was a combination of dance moves, aerobics and karoke. Sounds strange right? But singing while working out helps with the stamina and this was a good low impact workout on my rest day. I also think it isi good for people are not used to exercising at all, he had a range of different ages and body types in the video. A great motivator.

I also did a brief Afro-Latin dance routine, I missed most of the show but I liked what I was able to do and it inspired me to do more. Finally I did a walking workout. In total it was 45 minutes of waking and sculpting. I skipped the sculpting and during that portion of the exercise I did laundry. Doing household chores also burns calories you know and since I hate laundry I do it very vigorously!

Laundry. The bane of my existance. And probably everyone else too. But like exercise it is a necessary evil. Lucky for me the one thing I don't have to worry about regarding laundry is buying detergent. My friends at Tide have ensured that I am stocked up and won't need to buy detergent for an entire year. And since it is the holidays and all, we thought that you'd like the gift of a year's worth of laundry too. The lucky winner will recieve a year's worth of coupons for Tide Coldwater.



All you have to do is tell me what tips you have to make doing laundry easier.

To make doing laundry easier, have a way to sort dirty clothes as soon as they need to be put in the "hamper" or laundry. For instance, put all colored clothing together and all whites together... in separate bins.

Bring your laundry when you visit people :-) Ok, pretend I am joking! But my sister gets some of these coupons if I win!

Actually, pretreating stains is a lot easier when you do it before you start your laundry rather than as you do your laundry.

My tip is not to let all the laundry pile up for too long! When we do that it takes about 2 hours to do 3 months worth of laundry, and it's a pain! it's so much easier if we do it every week or so, since we can't do it daily.

Kidazy said...

I find it so much easier to do laundry if I have a set routine so everyone knows when things need to be in the laundry room to make the cut off for laundry. Sunday is laundry day and it takes all day but it's the only day I do it so everyone knows if it doesn't make the cut you're out of lucky until next week!

My tip is if you left that load of laundry in the washing machine and it has started to sour. Just add a little vinegar and start on the rinse cycle. The clothes will not have that sour smell and you don't have to rewash the entire load!

Dancing always makes doing laundry easier. Yes, dancing. Since I'm like you and I detest doing laundry, I just look at it as a mini workout.
Bending and stretching and dancing a jig always makes work time much more fun (and productive).

J said...

I think everyone has the same idea. For me, I sort liked items: white, towels, uniforms, and darks. I pre-treat stains and soak those that need extra help. I wash every two days so I don't have a mountain of laundry to do. it works for me being single and I am just around the corner from the laundry room.

deepudin said...

Don't let the laundry pile up!

Fresh Mommy said...

Ohh great giveaway!! Well, since I hate laundry just like everyone else, we've found that if we try to do just one load every day or so, it never feels quite so overwhelming. I can't stand feeling like it's going to take all day just to get clothes back into our closets.... now if I could just keep this tip up, I'd be all set ;)

We have a huge amount of laundry between four people. To help simplify, I have the kids bring their own stuff to the laundry room and I try to pre-sort (although that does not happen as often as I like). I fold most of the laundry but everyone is responsible for putting their own stuff away.

Misadventurous Mommy said...

I do at least 3 loads of laundry a day and with that much it becomes necessary to have tricks. My best one is to enlist the kids when you can (even a two year old can help take clothes out of the washer)it saves so much time and they learn the importance of helping out around the house!

Petula said...

One thing I do to make laundry a little easier is not sorting the younger kids' socks. I put them all in a laundry basket and when they need them the two middle ones go and search them out. My son does this the best so normally he has the task of getting socks for the girls.

BTW: I hate laundry too and I need to do a little vigorous housecleaning today to work off some holiday foods!

The way I make laundry easier in my house is that I make sure each one of the kids has their own hamper so it's easier to separate their clothes from our clothes. I also do laundry twice a week: on Mondays and Fridays, that way there's not so much to do at once. Thanks so much for such a wonderful giveaway!

Thank you for the great giveaway.

1. Purchase dryer sheets at the dollar store, seriously! I found Woolite sheets at the dollar tree so it really cuts down on the laundry budget.

2. IF you can get everyone to put their clothes where they belong, it helps keep you from having to go room to room for dirty laundry.


3. Did you know that used dryer sheets can clean your washing machine and dryer? I use them to wipe down my machines and get the goo, dirt off of them.

Second best tip is to line dry everything. Saves majorly on electricity/is environmentally friendly. If you don't live in sunny SoCal like me, buy a dehumidifier and it'll suck the moisture out of your damp clothes.

There are several tips that could make is easier - sort clothes as you put them in the hamper / basket. Make sure you have one for whites and one for colors. Pre-treat any stains before placing clothes in the hamper and don't let your laundry build up. It won't be any fun if you have 10 loads. Set a routine so you only have a couple at a time!

My laundry tip is to not let more than 2 days go by without doing the laundry. You'll regret the amount you have to do!

I have a 3 bin laundry sorter for dirty clothes (colors, darks, whites) which each hold the perfect amount for 1 load. I keep a stain stick attached to the sorter for easy and immediate pre-treating.

Use cold water for everything. There's no need to use warm.

If you can, do laundry once a week. For so long I did it everyday and it's so hard to keep up! It feels like you're forever folding!

My tip to make *my* laundry easier is that I now have my 15 year old daughter doing her own laundry! She's definitely old enough, and will need to know how... and it leaves me with just mine (and the miscellaneous kitchen, etc stuff).

My tip is to sort your laundry as soon as you take dirty clothes in the laundry room. Otherwise it piles up and then takes forever to go through.

My tip would be to sort your laundry before you start. It makes it way easier, plus you can turn everything the right way!

My tip is to do laundry at the same time/day. That way it will get to be one of those mindless chores that you don't even realize you're doing.

Oh - and if you care about saving money, DON"T do laundry every day - do it all at once. The most expensive part of laundry is heating up the dryer. If you do all your laundry at once, only the first load has to get heated up. Subsequent loads will already have the dryer heated up.

I make sure to turn everything inside out before I wash it. This helps keep colors brighter and to avoid snags from zippers, buttons, etc. It works great!
