The Dos of Doing Laundry – a quiz for National Laundry Day!

Laundry is a part of everyday life and sometimes it’s easy to just go through the motions and just get it done.  Let’s take a minute on National Laundry Day to ask ourselves some questions to see if we are making the grade on our laundry report card to do it right and do it safely.  If you answer no to any of these, it’s time to refresh your laundry routine to help clean, protect and extend the life of your clothes.

  • Are your laundry products always up and out of reach of young children and pets?
  • Are your laundry products always kept in their original containers?
  • Do you follow recommended instructions for how much product to use per load?
  • Do you read fabric care labels? Here’s a guide for what those symbols mean!
