If you had to name the most cluttered and disorganized room in your home, you might pick the laundry room. Dirty clothes mingle with clean ones, containers of detergent and softeners sit wherever you last placed them and, if the laundry room is near the back door, you're likely to find a collection of shoes underfoot as well. Get organized with a few laundry room storage tips that will allow you to keep the mess inside the washing machine. First, get some of that mess off the floor. That means starting with all those piles of dirty clothes.
The Triple Storage Bin with Black Frame and 2.5 Inch Casters is the perfect organizer for holding your laundry while you're waiting for wash day. What makes it perfect is the fact that it provides you with three bins that provide instant sorting ability. As your family members bring in their dirty clothing, they can place each piece in the appropriate mesh and cloth bag. That will save you loads of time when laundry duty comes around because you won't have to sort it yourself. And if you need to remove the bins to go and collect laundry around the house, you'll discover that each of them is actually a removable bag. A heavy duty steel frame holds everything together, and there is even a wire frame bottom that provides you with storage space for whatever you need to keep with your laundry. Next, you'll want to clean up the miscellaneous mess that so often finds its way into the laundry room.
The Rectangular Storage Container is made of canvas with a water-resistant vinyl lining that makes it a perfect gathering place for plastic water bottles and other recyclables. You'll even want one for your kids to toss in their dirty shoes until you have time to clean them. Each of these storage containers is fitted with sturdy handles so you can haul everything outside for cleaning or to the car to take to the recycling center. You might even want to keep one on hand to contain damp laundry such as bath towels. Another great tip to organize the laundry room is to gather all of your laundry supplies into one convenient location. The back of the washing machine is the most convenient spot to store detergent and softeners, and the Washing Machine Wire Shelf gives you the room that you need. This shelf is made of coated finish wire and it fits right onto the top back of the washing machine. It is strong enough to hold all your laundry-day supplies, and you'll find everything is close at hand when you need it. If dryer lint builds up on the wire, it's easy to brush or wipe it clean, too.
If that shelf isn't large enough to hold all your laundry supplies, you might want to put the Roll-Out Caddy between your washer and dryer. This coated wire unit has three shelves that are only nine inches wide, but that's plenty of room to hold boxes of detergent, bottles of bleach, containers of softener sheets and other items. The casters make it easy to roll in and out, so if it attracts dryer lint, it will be easy to clean. This is a rugged little unit that will last for years, and will store everything you need to do your laundry day chores. If your ironing board stands in a corner and you constantly have to straighten it and your iron sits in the way on top of the dryer, you'll appreciate this tip. Use the back of your laundry room door to store those items.
The Over the Door Iron Board Holder is a powerful organizer that hangs over the door or mounts on a wall. The iron sits in its own spot in the center of the unit, while two bottle holders flank it. The ironing board itself hangs from the bottom, out of the way and off the floor. Another easily mounted organizer that will quickly clear space in your laundry room is the Overdoor Laundry Hanger. This durable chrome piece is small but powerful enough to hold up to ten pieces of clean laundry. Hang clean shirts or trousers on clothes hangers and then slip the hooks into the slots to get them out of the way. This hanger features a locking hinge, but you can fold it down when you're not using it. There is a felt pad on the inside of the bracket so you won't have to worry about scratching your door when you put it up. These are just a few laundry room organizers that you'll be able to put right to work in de-cluttering your home. Inexpensive, sturdy and convenient, they will quickly right any mess that you have, and make your laundry day chores much more pleasant.
