Tips to Freshen Up Your Laundry Space
Task: Organize your laundry room
Eccl 9:10 "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might."
Simplify. Take a good look at what is happening in your space. Laundry rooms are often a catch-all for items from all over the home. Keep only what you use and love in the area.
Use walls and doors, not floors. Consider vertical solutions to maximize smaller spaces. A wall-mounted iron caddy is great for storing your ironing board and related supplies. Small rolling carts can hold detergents.
Keep a trash can handy for emptying pockets and removing lint from the dryer.
Have you ever completely forgotten about a load in the washer or dryer? Set an alarm or timer to remind you to get back to your responsibilities.
Use charts, lists, & schedules. Develop a reminder system so all members of the household have directions on how to sort clothes, remove stains, run the machines, etc. Customize it for your household.
Brighten it up. Make sure your area has proper lighting. Paint a wall. Hang a picture. Place a soft mat on the floor.
