This post is going back to an earlier task, water waste, because I notice we are indirectly wasting water without even thinking about it. This comes from this weekend from when I was doing laundry. I do notice how Ben and I both often times leave clothes on the floor because we are really tired and decide to do it the next day; typically we don’t even pick up the clothing then then. After a few days of this and tons of animal hair later the clothes end up down the laundry chute to get washed. I feel like if we can keep our clothes off the floor we will cut down our laundry by a load or a half per week.
This has been a pet-peeve of mine for a while with Ben, but I noticed that I sometimes leave clothes on the floor too. I figure if we work together on this issue we can save each other the frustration and also some water from being wasted. This will also reduce our need to use additional laundry soap so we will also save money on that. I stopped using fabric softener and dryer sheets because of artificial fragrances. This ties into this week’s task because we eventually want to cut out all products that use chemicals. If you have any tips on keeping laundry clean longer, please leave a comment in a comment section below.
