One of the biggest challenges with keeping the laundry room clean is keeping up with the laundry itself. Developing a system for doing the laundry will help you keep on top of it and help you keep your laundry room clutter free.
If you have a small family and do not need to do laundry everyday, assign specific days for certain types of laundry. Let your family know that if their clothing is not in the laundry room on the day you do that color or type of laundry they will have to wait till next week.
If you do laundry on a daily basis, pre-sorting the laundry makes it quicker and easier to complete. Train your family members to sort their laundry by lights, darks and delicates.
Utilizing a three bin laundry sorter makes it easy not only to sort the laundry but to keep your laundry room tidy. The seville laundry sorter and the whitney rolling laundry center are good choices for keeping your laundry sorted.
Use a permanent marker to label each bin. If you have young children that have not learned to read, take a picture of each type of laundry (lights and darks) and tape them to the bin. Even young children can learn to sort their clothing into each bin.
Also, teach your family to turn socks, shirts and pants right side out so you don’t have to. If you are having trouble with your children remembering, create a reward system.
By implementing a system for doing your laundry, you can keep on top of it and keep your laundry room clean.
