I do a lot of laundry. Like, a lot. We have three different laundry baskets just to keep up with it all.
Eric gets quite dirty and greasy at work, so his clothes go in a separate basket from mine and Maddy’s clothes.
Now that Maddy is potty training, we often have wet pants sitting in the basket on top of the pile of clothes-yuck.
Last week as I was taking clean clothes out of the dryer and putting them in the basket, it occurred to me how dirty the laundry basket probably is. I don’t usually clean them unless they’re visibly dirty, but that was maybe once!
I suddenly felt like my clean laundry wasn’t quite so clean after all.
The solution? Give your laundry basket a once over with a Clorox disinfecting wipe (I love these!), or a quick spray with Lysol.
