I am here to tell you that the rules have changed! There is no longer a need to sort your laundry therefore, I demand that you stop sorting laundry with Purex® No Sort™!
Okay, okay, I don’t demand, but I certainly suggest!
Confession: I am 31 years old and do not know how to do laundry.
Serious. All of the above is truth.
I know what you’re thinking – “She can’t really be 31 years old!”
I know. I know. It is the truth though.
But really. I don’t know how to do laundry.
I mean, yes, I can work a washing machine. I know how to put the clothes from the washing machine into the dryer and some would say I am an expert at folding clothes out of the dryer. It’s that first part that confuses me –
Sorting the laundry.
Growing up, mom did the laundry and she had piles. Darks, lights, hots, colds were her basic piles (towels and bedding were their own things on their own days). Hmm. Okay.
When I left my mom’s house, I moved in with a friend who did all the laundry. And I have to be honest – I have no clue how she did it. I don’t think I ever saw it.
From there, I moved in with my boyfriend (now hubby). He was informed from the get go that I had no idea how to do laundry so he has taken it on himself (although not so successfully). His piles consist of… dark hot, dark cold, lights hot, lights cold, Buggy’s stuff, Buddy’s stuff, Baby Girl’s stuff, whites (which usually are socks, underwear, undershirts) and there might be a few more.
Talk about overload. And I’m supposed to learn how to do the laundry with all that!?
I will say (as I pat myself on the back) that I did learn how to wash our cloth diapers, but that is simple. No sorting. Just a matter of temperature control.
I am now proud to announce that I can at least do my own laundry! And I did do my own laundry! (Yes, I am taking a bow!)
And now, with Purex® No Sort™ for Colors laundry detergent, I can learn how to do the rest of the laundry and not have to worry about sorting. (Let me tell you how excited I was to take a trip to Walmart, purchase my new laundry detergent – which, side note, was so much less cost wise than I expected – and throw everyone’s clothes in the washing machine in one big swoop! Lame right!?)
Purex® No Sort™ for Colors laundry detergent is a winner in my house!
– It saves hubby time (because I’m taking over the laundry now)
– It saves me time (because I don’t have to sort a million piles)
– It saves my brain cells (because seriously, there is no way I can learn how and remember all these piles!)
– It saves me money in more ways than one (the detergent cost me less than $4, I am doing less laundry (because less piles) so I am using less detergent (less money) and less water (less money). And because I am doing less laundry, my detergent lasts longer… are you following my logic?)
If you still aren’t convinced (or you really are stuck in your old habit) here are a few other things to try and sway you:
– Purex® No Sort™ for Colors laundry detergent has no bleedthrough of colors.
– It has Anti-Color-Transfer Technology that traps loose dyes in the wash and doesn’t let them settle on other fabrics so you don’t have to stress about the sorting.
While you may be a little nervous to try something new, do take caution. Purex® No Sort™ recommends washing strong colored fabrics or new pieces of clothing (especially jeans) separately at least 5 times before doing a mixed color load.
Do you sort your laundry? How many piles do you have?
(And if you can tell me I am not the only “grown woman” who doesn’t know how to do laundry, I’ll love you forever!)
