Turning Laundry Time Into Life Lessons

It’s hard to be a super mom every day. And let’s face it…some days are tougher than others. As a business owner and busy mom of two active kids, I can never quite keep up with the household chores, especially the laundry!

I decided when my kids were younger that it was time to expand their “life skills” and have them start folding their own laundry. Despite the grunts and groans that frequently come with the weekly task, we’ve found a way to turn laundry time into quality time together. I’ve taught them how to sort their clothes and load the washer correctly, we wrap ourselves in the warm and fragrant towels pulled fresh from the dryer, and even though they may not realize it, we turn our laundry folding time into together-time where we express ourselves and share experiences.  It’s amazing how many secrets, concerns and aspirations are expressed when you spend the extra time together.

I often joke with my 10-year-old son and tell him that he will “thank me later” when he’s the only one of his college roommates who actually knows how to do laundry!  And unlike the washing machines back when I was learning to do laundry, the new washers and dryers are so advanced; it’s almost guaranteed to get it right.

LG Electronics has long been known for their feature-rich appliances and stylish designs and they continue to push technological boundaries with the LG Mega-Capacity Top-Load laundry pair* that help save both time and energy. If you’re like me, trying to keep up with soccer socks, uniforms, towels and multiple teenage girl outfits per day, it’s great to have access to the largest capacity top load washer in its class** which makes it possible for the never-ending loads of laundry. I can even wash a king size comforter and full set of bedding in a single load. Can your washer do that? 

And as for teaching my kids the correct way to load the laundry, it’s easier than ever with the EasyLoad™ feature. This unique setup allows you to easily transfer clothes from the top of the washer into the top of the dryer to minimize bending and dropping clothes on the floor. The LG Dryer with EasyLoad™ Door is the first to open two ways – from the top to easily toss in wet clothes from the washer and sideways to quickly unload dry clothes into the laundry basket. Genius!

Doing the laundry may not be on my list of favorite things, but with LG’s innovative products that value my time, I’ve found a way to turn the typical chore into together-time with my fantastic kids.
