    34 Things That'll Make Doing Your Laundry Feel Like Less Of A Chore

    Laundry day will be loads of fun now.

    1. A laundry basket that'll fold flat when you're not using it. It has two sturdy handles and can hold up to two full loads of laundry, making it the perfect basket for anyone who doesn't have an ensuite washer and has to go to a laundromat.

    I have one and it's an absolute lifesaver. It's so much easier to get up and down the stairs with this laundry basket, and it's super deep, so I can fit multiple loads of laundry inside.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $37.66.

    2. A folding cup caddy that'll hang over the spout of your favourite laundry detergent to prevent dripping or spilling. It locks in place to keep it from moving and you can fold it up when when you're not using it.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $4.64.

    3. An all-natural stain remover that'll remove food, grass, sweat, and oil stains from all your clothing, bed linens, and carpets. It's non-toxic, so you can even use it on your baby's clothes.

    "I had used many stain-removing products in the past, but none of them ever really worked to get the toughest stains out. And then I read about Puracy Natural Stain Remover in a BuzzFeed post featuring dramatic before-and-after photos.

    I have a pair of light blue shorts that were splashed with some hot chili oil (it looks like little orange dots), and let me tell you — grease stains are basically permanent. The stain was also a day old, because I'd forgotten to pre-treat it. Not good. But it was the perfect time to put my new stain remover to the test. I applied the product directly onto the stain and rubbed it in. I let it set in for 24 hours, as the bottle recommends for best results. The next day, I put the shorts in the wash, and after they'd dried, I carefully examined them for results. The stain had COMPLETELY vanished. Just to make sure the first time wasn't a fluke, I treated another seriously messed-up white T-shirt. Again, the Puracy stain remover passed with flying colors." —Yi Yang

    4. Or an eco-friendly wine remover spray, if you're drinking a glass of red, red wine. It's made with a citrusy blend of fruit and vegetable extracts, making it bleach-free, biodegradable, and safe to use around children and pets.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, Emily Shwake / BuzzFeed

    "My first experiment involved a fresh red wine spill on a bright white shirt. I really did a number on this shirt so I drenched it in WineAway. The wine didn't disappear in the allotted one to five minutes, but after letting it dry overnight, the stain was almost completely gone.

    Afterward, there was still a faint outline of a stain on the shirt, so a few more applications might be necessary, but I definitely preferred this to any heavy-duty scrubbing that I would have otherwise had to do." —Emily Shwake

    5. A sock organizer that you can throw in the washer and dryer, so you never lose another sock again. Just attach your socks in pairs and use the adjustable slider to secure them. It'll hold both adult and kid socks, and it comes with a hook so you can hang it up in your closet for storage.

    6. A box of colour-catching sheets that'll absorb excess dye, so it doesn't bleed onto your light-coloured clothing in the washing machine. It'll save you from sorting your laundry, especially when you don't have enough clothing to do separate loads of whites and colours.

    The lint remover comes with a power cord, an extra blade, a storage bag, and a cleaning brush.

    "I got this because my favourite sweaters were starting to look kind of grungy. I tried using lint rollers, but they weren't picking up enough of the pills on my knits, and it was so time consuming. This electric shaver got rid of ALL the annoying pills and my sweaters look good as new. It's super gentle on clothes and it took way less time to get rid of the pills." —Kaysey Davis
