These 4 Things Have a Permanent Home in my Laundry Room and They’re All on Amazon rn
When the world gets too scary and unpredictable, a simple homemaking ritual like doing laundry gives me a sense of control.
It makes things feel less crazy and helps to create some order out of the chaos. Plus, it’s a way I can care for my family without hovering around them and being over-protective, which is totally my instinct these days.
If you’re craving that feeling of calm, think small. Refuel yourself with little tasks that give you an immediate outcome. Take care of your good heart.
You can jump back into the fight when you’re ready. We’ll hold your spot for you.
In my quest for a sense of peace, these 4 tools have earned a permanent place in my laundry room, and they’re all available on Amazon rn.
- Conair Steamer –https://amzn.to/3OWulN9 This steamer gets wrinkles out of linen in a flash. It heats up in a minute, has nifty safety features so you don’t get burned, and is so much easier to use than a bulky iron and ironing board.

- Whites Detergent- https://amzn.to/3yUhxl3 Super-concentrated and bleach-free detergent to get your whites satisfyingly brighter without toxic stuff. Plus it smells delish!
