How to Keep your Laundry Room Clutter under Control
Our laundry rooms are a magnet when it comes to clutter. It is the one room in the house that is constantly having clothes thrown in or out of it. To help you in controlling the clutter that seems to happen throughout each week, we at Mini Safe Storage in San Leandro have gathered some tips for you to try when it comes to keeping your laundry clean and clutter free.
Utilize Available Space
Laundry rooms are often small and never have enough storage. The key to maximizing your space is to think up. Use the wall space and space behind the door to add shelving and storage cubbies. You can personalize each cubby to hold every family members clothing and provide the needed organization when doing loads of laundry.
Let the Family Help
Doing laundry on your own is a daunting task to tackle. Having your kids help you with this daily chore will help ease some of your stress. If everyone in the family is responsible for his or her own clothes you can make sure all the laundry in the house is clean and sorted as it needs to be. Teaching your children the right way to do laundry from the beginning will help them from any unfortunate laundry mishaps they may have as adults.
Remove out of Season Clothing
The amount of clothing sitting in your laundry room may be largely due to the fact that you haven’t sorted through your out of season clothing yet. By storing out of season clothing in a storage unit at Mini Safe Storage in San Leandro, you can free up a lot more storage and closet space. You will also have a substantial amount less clothes to have to wash or store in your laundry room.
Set up a Schedule and Follow It
Doing laundry every day is not a chore that one wants to do. This will always result in a loss of motivation and the clothes will pile up and get out of control once again. By picking days of the week to do your laundry you can stay on top of the ever growing clothing piles and not get unmotivated in the process.
Use Sorting Hampers
Investing in a sorting hamper will save you a lot of trouble in the long run. These large hampers come with separate compartments that allow you to sort your laundry as you toss them into the hamper. This way you won’t have to dig through piles of dirty clothes to make sure you gathered all of your whites.
