Thank you to Method for sponsoring this post.
I have to confess, laundry has always been my most dreaded chore. Dreaded might be overstating it a bit, but it’s definitely the one I always put on the back burner. Recently, I had the opportunity to work with Method and try their laundry soap and fabric softener. I really, really loved using this product and I started thinking of ways I could turn my laundry-tude around. (That’s my new word for laundry attitude.) I wanted laundry to be something I looked forward to doing, so here are the ways I changed my laundry-tude and started to love doing laundry.

Five ways to start loving laundry:
Step 1: Purge, purge, then purge again. I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of clothes my family had. Often, I found myself washing and folding clothes I didn’t even like to wear. Laundry is easier and subsequently more fun if the loads are manageable and dresser drawers are not overflowing.
Step 2: Try doing one load every day. Wash, dry, and fold just one load and see how much more manageable laundry is.
Step 3. Buy a stylish new laundry basket. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but a little purchase can initiate a big change. If you love looking at it, you are more likely to use it and keep the area around it clean.
Step 4. Get sentimental. If you are folding clothes for your family, think about the love you have for the person who wears that soft shirt or those well worn jeans.
Step 5. Try a new product like Method Laundry Detergent and Fabric Softener. The bottles are small and truly fun to use! Instead of a messy cap, Method Laundry Detergent uses a pump. No more liquid detergent dripping down the side of the measuring cup, just 4 pumps right into your machine’s dispenser.
I really love using the fabric softener as well. No dryer sheets! Just spray the fabric softener right onto the clothes in the dryer, then turn on the dryer to activate. No more searching for dryer sheets in pant legs!
Not only is Method Laundry Detergent fun, it’s smart too. Method has cut the excess water out of their detergent, making it more concentrated and greener! They use less plastic and less energy to produce their product. Bonus: No huge, unwieldy jugs of laundry soap.
The simple pump system that Method uses cuts down on overdosing on detergent which is a big problem, especially in high efficiency machines. Too much detergent leads to soap residue on clothes and in the washing machine, which in time will lead to a smelly washing machine. We have had a smelly washing machine, and it is not cool!
Method has several amazing scents to choose from. We don’t usually use scented laundry soap, but I wanted to try something new, and I’m so glad I did! The Fresh Air scent is wonderful and it makes my laundry room smell amazing. The smell is not too strong on our clothes at all, in fact, they just smell fresh and clean. Now, for the really fun stuff!
