Feel free to enlist anyone or everyone in your family to help with some or all parts of the steps in Laundry 101, up to their level of ability (and certain steps of the process can be done by a three year old, or younger).
Laundry Is A Cycle
The first thing to understand when learning how to do laundry is that laundry is a cycle.
