Doing laundry is the last thing most of us want to do after a long week, especially if the laundry room is a mess. If you are the kind of person that doesn’t have enough time every week to organize stuff, you could use these ideas to keep your laundry room always organized:
Declutter your laundry room
The first thing you have to do is: declutter your laundry room. If you want to be organized, you have to start by cleaning the room, get rid of things you don't use, recycle unused or empty bottles of detergent and get some storage boxes to keep your things in order.
Put all the detergents and softeners in the same place
Some people have the detergents or softener in the kitchen, while others in the closet. The best idea is to keep them all in the same space. If your laundry room is small, you can keep it above the machines, or if you have space, you can create an area just for them. That also makes it easier to see when you are running out of it. Keep in mind: if you have kids at home don't put them in a place where they can reach it.
Store all hangers and laundry clips in the same place
Are you the kind of person that has laundry clips or hangers everywhere in the house? That happens... The best idea is to put them all in a basket or plastic box so you can have them organized and handy in one place.
Get a drying rack
When clothes don't dry properly they get a bad smell. If you don't have enough space at home, you can buy a rack dryer. They are super easy to unfold and can be stored anywhere: under the bed, on the balcony or next to the washing machine.
Of course, If you have a bigger laundry room you can hang them on racks. This one looks stunning! You can find cheap ones online or do your own like this one in the photo.
Keep a basket for missing socks
Yes, we all miss socks all the time when we do laundry. It's like the laundry machine eats them. Keep a basket in your laundry room to collect them just in case you find the pair. If after a while you have tons of socks accumulated you can either combine them or donate them to charity.
Use storage baskets to get organized
Storage baskets are super useful for a lot of things, especially in a laundry room. You can use them to separate different colors of clothes, to keep dirty clothes in one place or even to put the clothes once they are clean and dry. Shop here.
