No matter your age, laundry is a chore. Your dirty laundry baskets can quickly pile up with clothes—especially if you have small children or teenagers who just won’t put in the effort. It takes time and effort out of your schedule, and even more so if you have to travel to the laundromat and wait out the cycles. 

Many families turn to residential laundry services to take this load off their shoulders, but you can speed up your laundry by structuring it with the “sort as you go” routine.

The solution supposedly stripped out all the grime, leaving the clothes fresher than they’d ever been. Before you try out this method, read below to learn how it works and if you’re better off with residential laundry services.
