There are actually many things to remember when doing the laundry. You need to properly separate colors, figure out if brights get washed in warm or cold water, and keep certain items out of the dryer. But sometimes there are distractions and a step gets missed, potentially resulting in some serious shrinkage of your favorite shirt. Dry erase markers to the rescue!
Be smart and keep a dry erase marker close to your washer or dryer for jotting down laundry notes. Remind yourself to keep your favorite white sweater out of the dryer or hang dry your delicates. After you finish the load, simply wipe your washer clean with a paper towel.
