For those of you with tweens and teens, it is worth your time to teach your kids how to do laundry. Not only will this be a beneficial skill for them to have when they head off to college or leave home, but it also helps you now by reducing the amount of laundry you have to wash each week. While some parents are reluctant to allow their kids to do all of the laundry, letting them wash and dry their own clothes in your LG washer and dryer means you have more free time on your hands. You no longer have to spend hours picking up their clothes off of the floor and washing and drying numerous loads of laundry.
There are several essential steps your kids need to learn to successfully wash and dry their own clothes, including:
- Learning how to sort clothing
- Measuring the correct amount of detergent and other laundry aids
- Selecting the right settings on the LG washer and dryer
Many of the settings on your washer and dryer are preset, and the machines might remember any changes you made to the settings. You should assist your kids for about the first month they start doing laundry on their own. One useful tip parents follow is making a step-by-step instruction sheet and hanging it up in the laundry room for their tweens and teens to reference any time they are washing and drying clothes.
