Tennis ball trick
Eliminate static and help clothes dry better by throwing two tennis balls in the dryer. They will keep clothes from sticking together and drying unevenly.
I know it sounds tedious, but sorting your clothes into three hampers for whites, colors, and delicates will save you so much time on sorting and folding after the wash. Form the habit of presorting, and eventually, it will seem like second-nature.
Essential oil spritz
Do you love the smell of lavender? Well then put a couple drops of lavender essential oil into a spray bottle filled with water to give your clothes a spritz before the wash.
Lingerie bags for socks
Socks seem to vaporize into thin air when they go through the laundry. Don’t lose another one by putting all your socks into lingerie bags, so you’ll always know where to find them.
Dry erase marker magic
