Laundry rooms come in all shapes in sizes. Whether your room is oversized or compact, laundry room organization is key.
Looking to clean up your space? You’re in luck! Today, we are sharing 7 tips to keep your laundry room clean and organized.
• Store Laundry Detergent in a Beverage Dispenser
Laundry detergent can be messy and unsightly. Put a twist on your laundry, and utilize glass beverage dispensers as your new favorite tool! These dispensers will appear more attractive on a shelf and require no heavy lifting.
This trick also works great with softener. You may also add a chalkboard label for an extra personalized touch!
• Store Tide Pods in Glass Jars
Tide Pods often come in bulky, bright containers. Transfer these handy laundry room essentials to a glass cookie jar, for a more streamlined appearance.
If you are in a home with small children, simply store on a high shelf, or in an unreachable cabinet space.
• Utilize Designated Hampers
No matter what size your laundry room is, separating laundry ahead of time is a must for busy families. Incorporate at least three baskets – lights, darks, and delicates. Many choose a fourth basket for towels.
Working with a small space and are limited on your number of baskets? Incorporate a triple laundry hamper cart. This handy tool is both compact and moveable, as it has four wheels for ease of use.
• Add a Drying Bar
For shirts that are best served-air dried, add a drying bar that will hold several shirts that do not go in the drying cycle. Air-drying will prevent shrinkage and will keep your clothes looking their best. Many households choose to install their drying bar right above the washer and dryer, but you may store the bar wherever you see fit.
• Stack the Washer and Dryer for Tighter Spaces
Most front-loading washer and dryers sets allow for stacking, which saves precious space in small laundry rooms. Larger spaces also work great with this technique, as it adds more room for additional storage.
• Mount Bulkier Items
Bulky items take up much-needed space in your laundry room. Mount brooms, dusters, and ironing boards. You can also add an over-the-door storage set for store smaller items.
• Find a Place for Everything
Creating a storage space that works for you is essential to keeping your laundry room clean. Add wall hutches, shelves, and cabinets for a custom-feel room. If desired, display your laundry detergent dispensers, and hide bulkier items such as your iron.
Take a weekend, and implement the tips and tricks that work best for your space. Before you know it, you will have a Pinterest-worthy laundry room that will be the envy of all of your friends and family.
Clean up your space, and enjoy your new laundry room organization.
