Tips for a Crisp Clean Laundry Room

Dec 20, 2011

Whether your laundry area is a small closet or a spacious room, having the right appliances and a good system of organisation can make cleaning clothes less of a chore. After all, a bright, orderly space is a welcoming one, and a nice place to do something that has to be done.

Upgrade Your Appliances

As long as your old appliances work, you might not think you need an upgrade, but they could be costing more than you think. Look into efficient laundry appliances with features such as Bubblewash.

Clean Up the Clutter

Streamline your routine by organising and storing laundry supplies by type and arranging them where they'll be used. For example use a caddy to organise and store bleach, stain removers, detergents and laundry boosters by the washer. Do the same for fabric softener and dryer sheets, but store them near the dryer. Keep separate bins or bags for lights, darks, delicates and dry cleaning to help with pre-sorts and a small container for mismatched socks or loose change is also a good idea.

Ironing and Household Ergonomics

Laundry can be physically challenging. If you have to iron, make sure the board is at a comfortable height that doesn't require hunching over. As a general rule, the top of the ironing board should be level with your hip, and the same goes for a folding table or counter.

When loading your front load washer or dryer place the wash basket on the ground in front of the door to make loading and unloading easy. Also remember to always bend the knees.
