Quick Tips for Organizing Your Laundry Room

Laundry---smaller

1.  Gather All-Weather Gear

By getting all of your hats, gloves, sunglasses, scarves, etc. that are scattered throughout the house into one place, things will be just that much easier to find.  Julie Morgenstern, author of Organized from the Inside Out, says “Rather than retrain your family, store things beautifully where people drop them.”

2. Contain Your Cleaning Supplies

Try storing cleaning supplies in a basket from Saint Louis Closet Co.  Our baskets come in 6″, 11″ and 17″ heights, and can significantly help you organize the way you clean your home.

3. Create a Pet Zone

Let’s face it, if you have a dog or cat, they can take over the floors of your household.  Creating a designated place to store all of your pets’ toys, care items, leashes, etc. will make life a little more sane when it comes to cleaning up after your pets.

4. Pre-Sort Dirty Clothes in Hampers

Cut down on laundry time by pre-sorting your clothes.  Three laundry hampers are ideal for whites, lights and darks.  Saint Louis Closet Co. has tilt out laundry hampers that are perfect for just this scenario.  Get the family involved by having each family member bring their own clothes to the laundry room.

5. Create a Laundry Room “Lost and Found”

Designate a drawer or small basket to put single socks, gloves, etc.  That way, when its match pops up, you know exactly where to find its partner!
