Who loves to do the laundry? Hhhmmm, hardly anyone I suppose? Well, most of us will have to do it eventually. Back in the Philippines, we practice a different style of laundry cleaning. I am very sure that laundry cleaning in other countries is way better than what I grew up with. Hahaha!
My mom is a neat freak, so she make sure that everything is clean and that includes our clothes. Here’s our cycle:
- separate whites, colored and blacks
- run the washing machine and then put the dirty clothes by batch
- fill up 3 tubs with water
- fill the 4th tub with water and fabric conditioner
- after the machine does the work, every clothing must be rinsed by going thru the 3 tubs and finally the 4th tub with fabric conditioner.
- then this is when you have to put all the clothes in the spin dryer
- then hang clothes.
My mom is also particular with stained clothes. A red wine stain, chocolate stain and more often make up and lipstick stain! Hahaha! Those Those stained ones are left in a tub for a while before joining the rest of the clothes inside the machine.
I observed that doing the laundry here in Australia is way more convenient. The detergent, stain remover and the fabric conditioner are all in one place. So you just have to put them all in their respective places then start the machine and that’s it. After the first run, you are ready to hang your clothes already.
On the other hand, since most of the houses here have carpets and the likes, that’s where you may face some challenge. You wouldn’t want to see stubborn carpet stains, right? I’m not sure if some carpets are to be washed in a washing machine or dry cleaned. But I think they usually just put on some foam or detergent to remove it.
Well, however you do your laundry. Make sure not to mix all clothes together. It was one of my biggest mistake and I end up spoiling half of the clothes I washed.
Do you have any tips in doing the laundry?
