From time-saving strategies to smart organization techniques, get ready to streamline your laundry routine and reclaim precious moments for yourself.

Tip #1: Sort and Pre-Treat Like a Pro

Efficiency begins with smart sorting. Separate your laundry into distinct categories such as whites, colors, delicates, and heavily soiled items.

This practice not only helps maintain the quality of your clothes but also speeds up the process of washing and drying. Additionally, pre-treat any stubborn stains promptly using eco-friendly stain removers to ensure optimal results.

Use a eco-friendly stain remover

We recommend using Sonett’s stain removal spray. It’s 100% biodegradable, certified vegan, and works well on delicate fabrics like wool and silk.

Remember to check your pockets!

While you’re sorting, also remember to check your pockets to avoid tissues, paper, coins, or other contaminants getting into your wash.

Tip #2: Don’t overload the washing machine

To save time and energy, you’ll need to load the washing machine correctly. Overloading can lead to insufficient cleaning, while underloading wastes water and energy. Aim for a balanced load to allow for proper agitation and thorough cleaning.

How do you know if you’ve overloaded the washing machine?

Use your hand, you should be able to easily fit the palm of your hand between your clothes and the drum (in both front, and top loaders). The contents of the machine shouldn’t be tightly packed.

Plant based washing detergent

Tip #3: Use a high-quality plant-based detergent

The right high-quality plant-based detergent can deliver powerful cleaning performance while being gentle on fabrics. Plant-based detergents are derived from renewable resources. They are typically biodegradable and have a reduced carbon footprint, making them a more sustainable choice for eco-conscious individuals.

What are the benefits?

These detergents are formulated without harsh chemicals, artificial fragrances, or dyes, making them suitable for even the most delicate garments. Say goodbye to faded colors, fabric deterioration, and skin irritations caused by traditional detergents.

We recommend using Sonett’s laundry liquid, and sensitive laundry liquid.
