I have found 3 laundry tips that help me to keep it under control. If you’re a sports parent, these will help you, too!
1. Have designated practice clothes.
I stumbled onto this laundry tip by accident when my two oldest boys joined a soccer team two years ago that had required practice tees as part of their uniform. I rolled my eyes and complained, since we were already buying two game jerseys, shorts, socks, and new cleats for each of them. WHY do they need special shirts to practice in? They could just wear whatever tees they want, maybe even what they had on that school day.
But I bought them anyway and quickly figured out that it was the smart way to go. No more getting their school clothes dirty at practice and it was easy for them to get ready for practice because they knew exactly what they were to wear. While the other sports they play don’t have an official designated practice shirt, I’ve designated one on my own. It really does help cut down on the laundry.
2. Make a sports uniform shelf.
This is one of my favorite time-saving tips when it comes to laundry. I’ve shared it in the past over on The Soccer Moms, but it’s worth repeating because it really does work! When you’re putting away the laundry, all sports uniforms (and practice tees!) go in one spot. For me, that’s a shelf in my linen closet. There’s no wondering which drawer in whose room a game jersey went to- everything for all three of my boys is in one spot. That basket is where we put their soccer and baseball socks. I have had to make a second shelf where we put the off-season uniforms since they’re now involved in so many sports, but it really does keep things so much simpler.
3. Use the right detergent.
Practices and games can leave my boys really dirty. Using the right laundry detergent truly does help.
