She's Washing Clothes And Finds Change In The Pockets, But Where She Stores It Is Brilliant
FaithTap Staff 7/16/2015
The laundry room can quickly go from clean and organized to completely filled with chaos and loads of work. Rather than having things thrown around all over the floors, counters and on top of the washer and dryer themselves, use these helpful tips to make laundry time a more peaceful time within your home.
Empty out the pockets.
Hang a jar for change to store all of the coins you may find inside of pockets. Learn how to make one here or buy one here.
Outdoor flyer boxes are for more than flyers.
Use an outdoor flyer box as a lint trash can. Learn how to make one, here.
Place laundry soap in mason jar containers.
No one enjoys lugging around a massive laundry container every time they do laundry. By using mason jar containers it'll make pouring the soap so much easier.
Keep everything organized behind the door.
Hang a door rack over the laundry room door to organize all of the spray bottles, soaps and washing materials you need to have on hand.
No door? No problem.
Add a slim cart in between your washer and the wall to store necessary items.
Or add shelves above the washer and dryer.
If you have a tight laundry area, install shelving units. Learn more, here.
Are lost socks an issue?
Add a sock hanger to hold lost socks until the missing sock's are found.
Install an ironing board holder.
This holder is convenient because it holds your ironing board AND iron.
Install a small ironing board.
If you have no space for an ironing board, create a simple, smaller version that rests on top of the dryer.
Laundry guides are always helpful.
Frame this quick reference laundry guide for tips on determining what clothing symbols mean.
Add laundry guards.
Prevent clothes from falling off of the washer and dryer when folding on top of them.
Add a drying rack.
Install a drying rack for all of the delicate items you don't want to damage in the dryer.
Have designated laundry hampers to make it easy for the entire family to separate their lights, colors, denim and towels.
Laundry basket dresser.
Need more space for laundry? Add two laundry basket shelves and label them with the type of clothing the baskets should hold.
Have a stain station.
This convenient little station will make it easier for you to get out stains fast right when they happen.
