Laundry is just one of those chores that everyone dreads. Wash, dry, fold, and then do it all over again. Oh, and having a couple of kids only adds to the task at hand, transforming an hour’s worth of work to several hours at a time. Needless to say, laundry falls under the category of “housework” for a reason.

“There is very little reward in doing the laundry, aside from the obvious—clean clothes,” says Jeanie Engelbach, owner and founder of New York-based interior design and professional organization company, apartment Jeanie. “Unlike organizing a closet or rearranging the kitchen cabinets, you rarely experience the elation that comes from completing this task.”

The good news: It doesn’t have to be a task you can’t stand—or one that takes you forever. To help streamline the process, we reached out to expert organizers for their best-kept tips and laundry hacks, and what they shared is super helpful. So, ready to spend less time with your washing machine and more time doing things you enjoy?
