Use a Tri-Sorter
You don’t need to spend time and brain power deciding what to wash with what! Make your hamper do the work for you—invest in a tri-sorter for clothing. These have one compartment for whites, one for lights, and one for darks. To increase efficiency even further, hang a mesh delicates bag off the side where you can stash lingerie that will be washed right in the bag.
Make Sock Sorting a Snap!
If you hate the chore of finding and matching up socks, get yourself a second mesh delicates bag. Keep all your socks together in this bag, and then toss it in the washing machine when it’s full. This way so you’ll never have to wait for that stray sock that got stuck to the inside of your sweatshirt to finally shake free.
