Your own personal techniques/rituals when washing!


So how do you all like to do the laundry? How often would you say you put a wash load on?
Do you tend to do separate washes for colours/different people in the house?
What fabric softener and detergent do you use?
Do you put washed clothes in a tumble dryer or hang them on a washing line (and what do you prefer?) and do you use dryer sheets if you do use a tumble dryer?



I tend to do my washing over the weekend only (this is due to me working full time in the week and lacking the time).
Saturdays I do a coloured wash (which is mainly all of my clothes, I tend to own a lot of green and purple garments and as such I don’t want them mixing with dark colours).
I use Bold™ detergent tablets for the wash, and for fabric softener I use Comfort or Lenor™ (both lovely).
I always use a tumble dryer in winter as it’s the only efficient way to dry the clothes in time for the following week, and I use Bounce™ tumble dryer sheets.
I prefer putting clothes on a line to dry naturally however as I find this holds the beautiful smell of the fabric softener better than when dried in a dryer...
Then I do the dark colours (which all tend to be my boyfriends clothes, he wears a lot of black and blue with rare whites. Though neither of us really wear white).

I have some laundry related photographs that I will be sharing soon (I am currently sat at work and am unable to retrieve the photographs from here).

Generally music of choice for washing up is some Drum&Bass or Bristol-Sound, though normally I am listening to the sound of the TV from the living room... which usually has cartoons or some kind of horror movie on. (This Saturday it was Bump In the Night which I have on VHS because sadly it isn’t on TV these days... what a shame.)

I don't have any white clothes, but Lee's clothes tend to consist of black, white and blue so for him I have to do a dark wash and a light wash totally seperate from my coloured wash for my clothes, it can be a bit of a nightmare doing laundry.

I love dryer sheets... Bounce are my fave.

awh thanks :)
