Today is the day, our first official day of a week and half spring cleaning break. Sure, we will have some fun and the kids are bound to veg out thankful that we are done with testing, but first we are tackling the spring cleaning list.
First on that list, packing away all of the winter clothes. I admit, I just moved the coats, snow-pants and boots from the entryway. It snowed again just three weeks ago, I was a little nervous to move them out of site until the weather stayed in the 40's at night.
Before I could pack them all away though, they needed a good wash and lucky me, I had a sample bottle of The Laundress here to wash the kids winter wears. The allergen free, Baby Laundry Detergent, to be exact. I also got some great tips for washing their fluffy warm garments in the "How To Launder Bugaboo Footmuffs" post at The Laundress Blog. If you ever had a laundry question, you seriously need to visit their blog. Between it and the gorgeous catalog of laundry supplies that arrived at my door, I feel like I could be the queen of laundry.
This really is a good thing, because I've noticed lately that the hubs dress shirts and pants for work seem to be looking kind of blah lately. The colors are not as bright, the blacks are fading. After trying out the Wool and Cashmere wash on his sweaters before packing them away, I'm convinced that I really can master this "laundry thing" and I'm going to enlist The Laundress to help me.
The samples I tried worked great, smelled wonderful and their is a detergent for virtually every garment you may want to wash. So as I tackle the spring cleaning adventure this year, my laundry room is getting a makeover and I will be stocking up the detergents that fit our families needs. Because, I don't know about you, but I don't have it in my budget to replace a wardrobe every six months because they clothes get too run down. When I pay $80.00 (on sale) for a pair of pants for The Hubs, I expect them to last.
I want to know, to you take extra care when packing your winter clothes away or are in you Florida laughing hysterically at me, "Winter clothes, ha!" Either way, talk to me about laundry, what do you love, what do hate, what do you wish your detergent did?
