25 Ways to Make Laundry More Enjoyable!Chelsea Fuss
Maybe it’s because I’ve lived in one too many vintage apartments with coin-operated washers in a creepy basement, but it takes a whole lot of nagging, self-talk for me to get this task done! I’ve decided that if I can add some gorgeous products to liven up this chore, it might be more fun! For instance, I love steaming clothing as opposed to ironing, so I’ve purchased a steamer to make the task of ironing a little easier to endure. There’s also a whole array of natural, laundry soaps and linen waters made with essential oils, that keep your clothes smelling fresh without the use of chemicals. If the packaging is pretty, it makes the ritual a little lovelier! Take a look at some more lovely laundry products below, to make this this oft-procrastinated chore a little more enjoyable!
