Even as I write the title of this blog post, it kinda makes me laugh. A laundry hack from my 17-year-old son with ADHD?! It’s something he started doing about 6 months ago, out of the blue, and as the “laundry doer” of the house, it makes so much sense.
I know, I know, get to the tip already, right? Here it is…drum roll, please…he folds his socks together before putting them in the dirty clothes! I’m always on the hunt for missing socks for my daughter, but never for my son. You’d think it would be just the opposite! But no, he folds his socks together while my daughter throws hers on the floor or haphazardly tosses them in the laundry basket.
But doesn’t it make so much sense? Maybe you’re reading this and saying, “Duh, Jennifer, I’ve been doing this forever. What planet have you been living on to have missed this brilliant laundry hack?” Obviously, not this planet. (LOL)
Curious about this new habit he created, I asked him why he had all of a sudden started folding his socks together before he put them in his dirty clothes basket? He simply stated, “It just makes it easier to get them both in the basket at the same time.” Huh…simple, but genius, if you ask me. But then again, I am a little biased.
