Kids can help out with laundry at an early age — as long as Mom isn’t too particular about how the underwear and socks are folded.
4 Ways Kids Can Help With Laundry Duty
Empty the Dryer – Let’s face it. Bending down to empty the dryer into a laundry basket is one of my least favorite jobs. But it is perfect for a child who doesn’t have to bend down as far.
Empty the Lint Tray – This simple chore is something that HAS to get done. Why not let your little one remove the lint from the tray and dispose of it?
Sort Laundry – About once a week, when my clean laundry pile has grown to the size of a small mountain, the kids and I head to the living room to sort through all the laundry. Sorting the laundry into different piles (mommy’s socks, daddy’s socks etc) is a fun game for them.
Fold Laundry – Once all the laundry has been sorted into the different piles, the kids can find their individual piles and start to fold. Some kids like to make neat little piles of their underwear and fold their socks precisely, while others don’t take as much care folding their laundry and may just throw the pieces into the drawer.
Our family is sensitive to scents and perfumes, so the Tide Free, Bounce Free & Ultra Downy Free product lines are perfect for our skin, and they don’t irritate our noses.
Softness for the skin you’re in—Sensitive skin laundry regimen
It’s no secret that our skin types are as varied as our individual personalities. For those of us with sensitive skin, the
winter months can be particularly difficult, as our skin becomes drier and more easily irritated.
