When it comes to laundry, working smarter—not harder—is better for your schedule and your clothes. After paging through years of expert laundry how-tos and innovative tips from Martha, we've pulled our best advice for solutions that cut the time you spend on laundry while extending the life of your clothing. Keep linens and cloth napkins, sheets and comforters, workout gear and baby clothes, and all the other fabrics in your home in like-new condition with this detailed guide.`

1. Always Sort Before Washing

While it may be tempting to stuff your washer with all your clothes at once (and then move on with your day), sorting laundry by material or color helps preserve your clothes.

Common loads might include one that is based on fabric type (workout gear in one, towels in another), color (yes, you really should separate white T-shirts from colors and darks), or soil level (keep grease-stained clothes away from baby laundry).
