Mom Hack No. 2 : Laundry Tongs

Training the family to do their own laundry is a #MomHack I have especially enjoyed. Some pre-teens and very possibly shorter individuals like myself, may not be able to reach the bottom of the washing machine. A pair of tongs designated just for the laundry room will allow them to finish up the job with no additional assistance and assure every article gets into the dryer.

    Lost socks are the worst. Why have I never thought to wash them in a bag before?

  3. I think the lost sock problem in our house is unsolvable. My kids will shove one sock in the couch cushion and the other in the laundry basket. Thankfully they don’t cry about mis matched socks.
