When we first moved into this flat 4 years ago I was so excited about having an actual laundry room. No more lugging clothes up and down stairs and keeping rolls of quarters around in the drawers. Now though, laundry is still one of my least favorite household chores. Turns out, the stairs and quarters had little to do with it. In these cases of undesirable household chores, I’m quick to remember that my 6 yr old really needs to engage in more heavy lifting to ensure he grows up to be a well adjusted and hard working adult. So much of the chore gets turned over to him. Win win!
Turns out though, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in his attitude toward laundry. We added a couple simple changes to make this daily chore a little more fun and want to share these with you as well.

First, we tried out the new Gain Flings available at Target which are little soap packets that get thrown into the laundry before shutting the door. No measuring or dealing with liquid at all. These things smell lovely! They actually have 50% more scent than the Gain liquid version, plus Oxi boost and Febreze. Our clothes came out smelling amazing, which made the other part of laundry I hate, folding, a lot more enjoyable.
Then, I also asked my talented sister, Rebecca, to draw a fun little how-to as both decor for the laundry room and to help him remember the steps (the less time I have to spend in there the better!). This would be really pretty to frame in your laundry room as well, although we just used some small magnets to attach it to the machine.
You can have one too! Download it here for your own laundry room.
And the best part, a great sweepstakes for you guys! Enter a to win a $300 Target GiftCard to try Gain Flings for yourself + loads of other stuff on your to-do list to make your life easier.
