I always say that the most obvious proof that the kids are growing is the increase in the amount of dirty clothes..kase when you’re a mom, sometimes you worry that you’re kids are not growing up fast. Take a look at your laundry or notice how it was before and how it was now, you’ll see how big your kids had grown up. In my case, the usual 2-3 hours doing the laundry had increased to 4-6 hours (bed sheets, towels and the likes not included), but you know the best thing about the kids growing up in relation to doing the laundry, I got me little helpers!
My typical wash day starts with sorting out the clothes. You know, that’s the basic fabric care tip I can share. Wash clothes according to color and size. Ayan, may naalala tuloy ako.. back then, when I do the laundry, sorting the clothes is just about light colored clothes, dark colored clothes, pants and kids clothes. Now, light colored clothes are sorted again, same with the dark colored clothes and so on.. kung baga sa multiple choice, mas marami ng choices ngayon!
The importance of sorting clothes before washing is to ensure that no discoloration will happen. Also, washing clothes according to size and type of fabric ensures that the fabric will not be stressed out during washing. Different kind of fabrics need different kinds of wash setting (for washing machine).
So here’s how my sorting is done:
Dirty clothes are first sorted out into categories: White clothes (adult clothes + kids school uniform), White clothes (kids), Colored clothes, pants, brassieres (for hand washing).
White clothes are then sorted out according to size and kind of fabrics: Kids uniform, all white adult clothes and semi white or white clothes with print.
Kid white clothes is also sorted out: Sando, underwear and socks.
Colored clothes are sorted out according to color, and for a family as big as much, yes we have a rainbow colored laundry! Just kidding, my colored clothes laundry is usually about green, red, blue and dark. Yellow goes with green group, Pink goes with red, brown and black goes with the dark group. Parang larong moro-moro lang ang labahin ko di ba? Kampi-kampi haha
Hindi pa tapos yan.. because the dark colored group will be sorted again according to size: small sized and bigger ones (mga pangbata at pang matanda). The the pants which again will be sorted out according to size and sometimes according to shade.
Sorting out pa lang, nakakangarag na at time consuming! Eh wala naman ako magagawa di ba, if I will not sort out our dirty clothes, we might end up having rainbow themed clothes!
Now comes the real deal, the star of the night, the main dish! err.. I mean the main job, the actual washing of clothes. If sorting out takes an hour to complete, the actual washing is 3-5 hours (hindi pa kasama ang sampayan diyan ha at ang tiklupan! ay at ang plantsahan!). I try to be as organized as possible when I do my laundry, after sorting the clothes, I start washing the white clothes first. Wash and then rinse, some by hands, some through the washing machine. Then fabric conditioner and the cycle goes on until the last piece is done. And then hanging it to dry. The next day is for folding the clothes and ironing those that needs to be ironed (usually half of the clothes I washed).
the leaning tower of dirty clothes hahaha
Saturday is my laundry day and with the amount of time I spent doing it, madalas, our lunch is sacrificed. I don’t have the time to cook when I am doing the laundry. We usually end up buying our lunch or whatever is available in the pantry. And I know aside from our lunch, the time I spent with the kids are also sacrificed.. medyo malungkot yan mga mother.. having four kids, I really need to make sure that I have time to spent for each of them..and this laundry thingy is making it hard! (ahuhuhuhu)
