A mom who revealed that she no longer folds her toddlers' laundry is dividing parents on TikTok.
In a video viewed by 3.5 million, Courtney Bavis of New Brunswick, Canada, shared the reasons why she's opted for a no-fold method.
Between Bavis, her husband, her 1-year-old and 3-year-old, loads of clean clothes pile up. Tiny clothes easily become unfolded -- especially if Bavis' little one gets into the drawers. Instead, Bavis places them in bins, she said.
"Sorting clothes into bins has been a great time saver for our family and allows the clothes to actually get put away. The kids can easily help too," Bavis told "Good Morning America." "We also are needing to change their clothes a few times a day due to spills and outdoor play."
Moms and dads sounded off in the comments section. Many were concerned about clothes becoming wrinkled, though Bavis said she tries not to buy items that wrinkle easily.
Naysayers called the idea "lazy," and those who praised Bavis said her no-fold hack was "genius."
"One of my favorites that made me laugh was, 'We can do that? Why did no one tell me!'" Bavis said. "It is almost like this video gave parents permission to let go of the laundry stress."
Bavis said she decided to leave her job outside the home after her son was diagnosed with autism so he can receive in-home services.
She now shares her love for kids' decor, toys and hacks on Instagram and TikTok.
