Tips for Fighting The Wash-Day Blues


Got kids? Then you've got laundry. Piles and piles of it. It's hard enough to keep up with laundry load, let alone the latest fabrics and their special care.

As a result, the laundry basket eternally runneth over, and no one ever seems to have the right thing to wear. You feel like you're on an ever-accelerating Laundromat treadmill. 

By following the basic sorting techniques, matching the right laundry products and water temperature to each load, and putting stain-busting strategies into play, you can make such spotty moments disappear.

You'll be rewarded with clothes that look cleaner - and last longer.
