Print a free set of laundry care reminders for the washer. You won’t accidentally toss delicates or stain-treated clothing in the dryer, again!
Have you ever stain-treated a piece of clothing, only to accidentally throw it in the dryer without checking to see if the stain was completely gone? I have… too many times to count! Of course, once it goes through the dryer, any remaining stain will be hard to remove. After my most recent laundry mistake, I whipped up this set of Laundry Care Reminders for the washer.
By the way, take a second to check out our vintage Laundry Room makeover. It’s filled with practical storage and organization, on a budget (just like these cute laundry care labels!).

2. Cut the Laundry Labels
Once printed, cut out the laundry care labels with a 12″ paper trimmer or scissors.
3. Laminate the Laundry Care Cards
Next, protect the laundry care reminders by placing them inside a laminating pouch. Once inside the pouch, feed it through a laminator to seal the card securely inside the laminate. Once cool, use the paper trimmer or scissors to remove excess laminate.
4. Hang the Laundry Reminders
Finally, hang the laundry care reminders on the washer door. I like a magnetic bulldog clip for this task, but you could also attach a small magnet directly to the back of each care card.
Now, you’re all set! No more accidentally set stains… or delicates ruined in the dryer. Instead, leave notes to yourself, your hubby, or the kids… whoever is flipping that next laundry load. With a set of laundry care reminders, you can ensure that the right items end up in the dryer!
