I find myself looking more and more for housewife blogs and I’m always reading. Most days my television isn’t even on and doesn’t get turned on until my husband arrives home until after 6 in the evening. It’s a great way to save on electricity. I came across and interesting book and had to read some of it. The name of it is:
There was a chapter on laundry and I think we’ll all find that if we’re choosing to save, have our wardrobes last long and be consistent about encouraging ourselves to iron plenty in our lives we will all enjoy all that’s listed here.
My mother was a stay at home housewife and my father worked at General Motors. I remember hanging clothes on a clothes line and using a ringer washer as a young girl and they do get your clothes clean!
Since it is now the Spring season I thought it would be the perfect time to bring these factors to light when it comes to doing laundry and the art of it.
Things the French Know About Laundry:
1. Use different stain fighters for different types of stains.
Whether using a stain pen on sauce, mustard, or ink of some color instead of keeping the same formula in your laundry room for stain fighter there’s a better way. Grass stains are not the same as ink stains and stains are different on silk. Explore the different stain removers for different types of stains that are out there.
2. Air dry
Don’t machine dry delicate clothing. We as Americans want to stuff huge loads of laundry into a huge size washing machine. Dry on a clothing line or invest in a clothing rack. This saves on electricity and dryers are to be avoided unless absolutely necessary. It causes more wear and fade on our clothing.

3. Iron Everything- Invest in a small hand held steamer that you can pull out to prep your work or dress apparel for the day at hand. You’ll still look dressed up and presentable but you won’t have to devote your weekends to ironing every single piece of clothing.
4. Always check garments and turn them inside out. Ironing may be a little dreadful or ambitious for some of us but this is a tip for everyone. Reversing garments helps protect them and prevents the metal from jeans or other attire from scraping the inside of the washing machine or even the dryer if your choosing to use it. A simple extra step that takes only a few minutes.
5. Learn to Fold everything the right way. Ironing jobs will be useless without the proper folding techniques.
I hang and fold every item as soon as its done being washed and dried whether on the line or in the dryer. Another way to save is to tumble dry an article until it is wrinkle free and still damp and then just hang as usual until it is dry.
Are we hanging clothes on the clothes throughout this spring and summer.
