How To Hand Wash

I can’t tell you how many of my favorite blouses are “hand wash only” and I learned that if they put it on the tag it’s for some reason. Rest in peace beautiful chiffon top that I wore only twice! I actually feel dumb now because hand washing takes about the same time and effort I put into doing a regular load of laundry. So here are the steps:

1. Clean out your sink, tub or bucket

2. Fill with luke warm or cold water

3. Add (about 1/6th to 1/8th of a normal loads worth) of mild detergent (I use Charlie’s or ECOS)

4. Add clothes and spend about 1 minute kneading each article

5. Rinse until suds free (You can use sink faucet, shower head or diaper sprayer)

6. Roll up garment in a towel to help wring out excess water

7. Lay flat to dry (or in my case hang because I don’t have the space)

Optional:

8. Now go fold the 4 other baskets of laundry while binge watching something on Netflix

Caution:

Don’t wring, twist or pull too hard they are delicates
