Manic Monday: Clean Laundry

I HATE laundry!!! Laundry will be the death of me. It seems so silly because it seems like the simplest task but it's such a nuisance. Lately, my laundry has been getting washed, dried and put into a laundry basket. About 50% of the time it's been folded but it has rarely been put into the drawers and/or hung up.

I wish that I had a shortcut to easing the whole laundry process but I don't. This post is about laundry detergent. It may seem silly that laundry detergent could simplify life but let's just go through the motions of pouring the laundry detergent. In my case, I pull the heavy bottle of detergent from the cupboard in the laundry room, unscrew the cap, pour the detergent in the cap inevitably dripping it somewhere, pour the detergent in the washing machine compartment and shut the compartment.

Dirk's dad told us about Method's new laundry detergent. I'll admit I was skeptical. I am a creature of habit and pretty loyal to specific brands. I love the smell of Tide detergent and Bounce fabric softener but the Method Fresh Air Laundry Detergent smells amazing, pretty close to Tide. The great thing about this detergent is that it's concentrated and comes in a small bottle with a squirt top. So now when it's time to pour the detergent, I take out the very light bottle of Method Laundry Detergent, pump 4-6 pumps into the detergent compartment and voila! Done! No mess and so fast. Some of you may think I'm being silly but in my mind every second counts. The little time I save doing each of my millions of loads of laundry helps. I really love this stuff!
