    This is very helpful. You’re right, there is a lot of knowledge that I take for granted and this is a well organized way to pass it on. Thank you!

    This is so AWESOME! Love it, thank you so much. Wow! I forgot to teach my kids a lot and I am absolutely sharing the how to fold a fitted sheet because I can’t do that. lol

    There is a way to fold a fitted sheet by putting two corners in together that I usually use but I like this one even better!

    Thank you! This series is proving to be a ton of work for me, but I think these things are so important for us to remember to teach our children!

    Absolutely brilliant! My kids have been cleaning since they could hold a toilet brush. They’ve been folding and putting away laundry for years, but I still get nervous about them doing their own laundry. I’m loving your step by step list. Sharing this with the kids this afternoon. They will be thrilled with the independence I’m giving them. lol!

    I love this idea for a Home Ec elective. My mom used to teach Home Ec in high school and these were the things she taught the kids.

    Haha! Yeah, I’m sure they’ll just be loving the freedom of doing their own laundry from start to finish! 🙂

    Great post! I once asked my teenage boy to clean the bathroom so he went and squirted bleach all over the shower walls and left it to do its thing. I went in and found the walls with streak where the bleach had landed. It took about a year to get the walls back to normal.
