Short on laundry room organization and storage ideas? No sweat—we’re long on them. With a smarter set-up starring even just one of these so-smart solutions, laundry day can run smoother and the laundry room, however small it is, can stay tidier.
Don’t drop the small stuff
Laundry Guard does two key jobs perched on top of a front-loading washer, dryer, or both. It acts as a guard rail to keep wayward clothes from falling behind or in between appliances (probably never to be seen again; RIP, favorite shirt) and it makes this surface a functional worktop for folding and sorting without the worry of losing anything.
So many socks. So few matching pairs.
Or rather: so many socks, so little patience. Ditch sorting and folding (and searching) and turn to SockDock. It keeps socks together during the washing and drying process and all the way back into your wardrobe. Clip dirty pairs of socks to the organizer and when it’s full, toss the whole thing in the washer and dryer. (Really!) It all comes out clean, dry, and still paired up. What will you do with all that sock-pairing time you just saved yourself?
Take the bulk out of the laundry basket
Laundry baskets are a necessary evil and the next-to-last step of the clothes-washing process. Flexible and foldable Betterbasket takes the typical awkward bulk of baskets out of your laundry space, and it’s partitioned to keep darks, lights, and whites (or his, hers, and kids) separate. Straps mean you carry the load firmly in your hand—not perched on your hip. Best of all? This basket flattens out and folds up to store away.
Short on floor space, a dryer, or both?
The laundry room layout can be tight at the best of times, with little-to-no space left to pop up a drying rack. Lofti DUO hangs from the ceiling to make the most of all of your laundry space. Pull on the pulley system to access the rack for drying time, and to tuck it back up to the ceiling.
A small laundry room might be tricky to work in, but it’s still totally doable. Tight on space doesn’t have to mean disorganized, as these space-saving and efficiency-boosting upgrades prove. You’ll be glad to have one or more ready to work with you the next time the hamper is full.
Now that you’ve mastered laundry room organization, cut down on detergent by using this money-saving, eco-friendly alternative.
