Make a plan on how to deal with the laundry.

  1. Talk to the adult to find out how they do it now
  2. Make your plan (example below)
  3. Execute your laundry plan
  4. Evaluate your week as responsible for the laundry. What went well and what went bad? What was difficult to do, what was easy?

Example of how to do laundry:

  • Decide a day when you can do the laundry.
  • Collect all the garments that needs to be washed.
  • Read the Labels. Check the care labels on your garments and linens to see if they should be washed by hand or in the laundry machine.
  • Sort. Start by sorting the laundry by color:
    • Whites, pastels, light grays, and white background prints will go in one pile. 
    • Deep colored clothes—black, red, navy, brown, dark gray—go in another pile.
  • Sort Again. Sort each pile one more time by type of fabric. For instance, in the whites pile, separate towels, and sheets from apparel. In the dark colors, separate t-shirts and jeans from lighter weight items like blouses and dress shirts.
  • Pick a Detergent. Select an all-purpose laundry detergent. Read the directions or ask an adult to determine how much to use based one size of load and water quality you've got.
  • Pick a Water Temperature and Cycle. Washing in cold water will usually be sufficient and save the environment.
  • Final Check. Double check everything before you load the washer. This will save you from any last-minute mistakes.
  • Load the Washer.
  • Unload the Washer.
  • Hang dry your laundry if possible. This saves money, energy, environment, and causes less damage to your clothes. Otherwise, read the labels to determine if the clothes can be loaded into the dryer.
  • When dryer is done, hang or fold and store.
