Tips for Organizing Your Laundry Room

Washing clothes is a demanding (and seemingly endless) chore. If you’re working in a clean and organized space, it can take some of the stress out of the task of doing your laundry. Here are some tips to handle organizing your laundry room like a pro.

Pre-sort

Having hampers set up to sort delicates, whites, colors and permanent press items can save you time. You can choose to use three or four separate hampers or one that has dividers. Be sure to have these labeled and/or color-coded. Teach your children to put their clothes in the correct section so when it’s time to throw it in the wash, it’s pre-sorted. This will save you a great deal of time.

Storage solutions

Having your cleaning and laundry supplies handy is a great idea. This can be done in a variety of ways. Many choose to have cabinets or shelving above the washer and dryer to keep detergent and bleach out of reach of small children. You may choose to use storage bins or pretty baskets if your space is visible.

Hang it up

Some clothes are not meant for the dryer and you need a space to hang them up. A rod, clothesline or wire rack can all do the job. You can also install a laundry room drying-bar using a basic bath towel holder. Another method is a fold-up drying rack if you’re lacking space for a permanent fixture. You may decide that hooks are the way to go – and in this case, you could use the hooks to hang and store away additional hangers and even your ironing board.

Look up

Unused wall space is just begging for usage in the form of a cabinet, shelf or some other storage solution. You may also use wall space for pegboards, calendars, white boards for scheduling, or a blackboard to leave cute notes.

Keep the change

A piggy bank or just a simple jar kept on a nearby shelf would be useful for all the coins, buttons and other tiny items that are left in the pockets of pants.
