(BPT) - Sorting, washing, drying, folding, organizing — with so many steps to the process, laundry is one of the most dreaded chores. If you feel overwhelmed by the amount of laundry you tackle each week, you’re not alone.
But for even the busiest families, laundry day doesn’t have to be a chore. Here are some helpful tips for sprucing up your laundry room and creating a system that works for you.
1. Customize your laundry schedule
Unless you’re just doing laundry for one, you likely don’t have time to do all your laundry from start to finish in one sitting. Try breaking it up into smaller tasks by doing smaller loads throughout the week. Doing a load or two each day can make laundry feel less time-consuming and you can be completely done with laundry by the weekend.
2. Take out the guesswork
Who has time to mess with all the settings on the washing machine? The LG WashTower takes out the guesswork with built-in intelligence that uses sensors to detect fabric texture and load size, and then automatically selects the right wash motions, temperatures and more for precision fabric care. And once it learns your preferred settings, it will remember your ideal wash temperature, spin speed or dry level.
3. Save space in your home
Laundry rooms are most often one of the smallest spaces in your home, and it’s no secret that washers and dryers take up a lot of space. Organization helpers like behind-the-door or under-sink shelves can help store your laundry essentials. LG WashTower's single-unit design also helps make the most of your space with a sleek, streamlined aesthetic that fits into nearly any laundry space.
4. Get more done at once
The more clothes you can wash in one cycle, the faster you’ll be done with laundry day. Consider investing in appliances with ultra-large capacity to fit more in every load. With 4.5 cubic feet in the washer and 7.4 cubic feet in the dryer, the LG WashTower fits big loads of towels, jeans and even a king-size comforter.
5. Be in complete control
With so many different control settings on your washer and dryer, it can be difficult to know the right setting for a particular load. But a convenient control panel with buttons instead of dials makes set-up easier than ever. Typical stacked washers and dryers often place controls at the very top of each machine, making the dryer buttons hard to see and reach without using a step stool. But the LG WashTower’s Center Control panel is perfectly positioned with both washer and dryer controls in the middle, so it's easy to reach.
It’s time to rethink the way you approach laundry day. Consider these ideas to make your least favorite chore a bit more manageable each week.
