Tips to Organize Your Laundry Room

Your laundry room keeps your clothes clean, but how do you keep your laundry room clean? It seems we are all in a hurry. And there is a tendency to pile up dirty clothes, hang dry clothes in the nearest doorway and throw cleaning supplies wherever we can find a spot. Keeping your laundry room organized, however, can reduce stress and streamline your laundry chores. That way you'll have more time for your upcoming staycation!

Reshape the way you look at each element in your laundry room to utilize it in your organization goals. Here is how:

1. Your Ceiling = A Drying Station

Some delicates shouldn’t be tossed in a dryer, but if you’re short on room, where can you hang them? A ceiling is an overlooked spot for storage, but a great place to hang a drying rack. Try securing a basic rod to the ceiling above the washer and leave empty hangers on the rack for quick removal & hanging.

2. The Door = Cleaning Supply Storage

The back of your door is another commonly overlooked opportunity for storage. Instead of cramming your cleaning supplies into limited shelf space, organize them on the back of your door making sure they are all securely closed to prevent a mess. Search for storage solutions designed for closets as a starting point or opt for an over-the-door organizer if your door frame allows it.

3. Your Hamper = Separated Loads

Having to separate laundry by colors and textures when you are ready to throw a load in adds extra time and headache. Why not sort as you go? Have multiple baskets or hampers with designated labels such as whites, colors, and delicates. Then, get your family on board and have them divide their laundry into these containers.

4. The Wall = A Folding & Ironing Station

Where do you fold your clothes? On the couch or rug? If you don’t have a designated folding area for your laundry, this can make you feel stressed or even cause your clean clothes to pick up dust and pet hair, negating your hard work. If you have enough room, add a cart that can be used as a folding table and can double as extra storage below. Even if you’re short on space, you can build a station that folds up into the wall and can be pulled down when a load of laundry is hot out of the dryer.

According to The American Cleaning Institute, getting rid of clutter would eliminate 40% of the housework in the average home and disorganization (not lack of space) causes 80% of household clutter. When searching for more laundry room storage, leave no nook or cranny unused. Use blank walls or corners to add shelving. Label items in your laundry room. Add some organization to what can feel like a tedious task. We hope you enjoyed these tips for organizing your laundry room from Eagle Home Mortgage
