  1. Start with a Deep Clean

The first step to any decluttering involves a deep clean. Yes, we know it might not be your favourite task, but it is necessary! Without a deep clean, making sure that everything is good to go for the next steps, which involve organizing, will be much more difficult. Make sure to start out with a deep clean. Take a trash bag and start throwing out all items that are taking up space uselessly in your laundry room. For example, do you have a few items that are just lying around which could, instead, be put back in their right place? Place them in the pocket treasure holder. Otherwise, do you have empty bottles of detergent and softener? Throw them out. Clean the walls and rid them of the growing spider webs. Clean the windows, take away the socks that have somehow fallen behind the dryer and save up the accumulated lint. Your deep clean should make sure to already get rid of all the small extras that are laying around the room so you can start out with a fresh feeling and much more space to work with.

  1. Use Vertical Space!

Next up, you can start creating a space that is much more conducive to staying neat and organized. This means using the space you have to organize your area the way that works for you, which is functional, while remaining aesthetically appealing. In other words, make some space and use organizational tools to help you steer clear of the clutter. One of the ways to do this is to use vertical space. Use the ceiling to hang things where you are lacking space. Use the walls to hang more shelves, and stick a few baskets and boxes there which can help you get rid of the clutter as you can put things away as you are done using them. Now, this is important– have the discipline to get rid of the things you don’t need as you go, don’t stuff them into the boxes!

  1. Use Free Walls

Similar to the previous point, free walls are your best friend. You can use these to hang useful appliances and/or helpers. For example, by hanging up a wall hanging rod, you can make it much easier to hang up clothes there and can therefore get rid of the clothes which are in the middle of the room on a hanging rack. Similarly, hang up more hooks– you can never have too many hooks! Instead of dropping things on your dryer and washer, use the walls as storage spaces. It will leave your laundry room looking much more polished and less cluttered. The walls can also be used as places to hang up information for the kids to follow for example, especially if you are looking into making your children learn some laundry responsibilities as they grow older!

  1. Use a Lint Bin

When it comes to clutter, I think we can all agree that something which makes a laundry room look and feel cluttered is flying fluff. Indeed, when the lint tray is not emptied, and when we forget to empty it, not only are we looking at a fire hazard, but we are also letting lint fly around the room aimlessly. Aside from being annoying, it also adds to the clutter for no good reason. Instead, use our lint bin to get rid of your lint and save it up for fun projects. Conveniently, our lint bin serves as a visual reminder to empty the lint tray while also helping you keep the room free of dust and fluff. Not only this, but it can be attached right onto your washer and/or dryer as it has a strong magnet. So, you aren’t adding to the clutter, but you are using pre-existing space and are maximizing what you can do with it. What more could one want?

  1. Use Sheet Dispensing Apparatus

Speaking of clutter, have you ever thought about how easily dryer sheet boxes get all over the room? They don’t only look unappealing, but they also make a room that could otherwise look very polished and look quite cluttered. Instead of having sheet boxes everywhere and having to throw out a few sheets every time because they become dirty through the mess or get all dusty, try out our sheet dispenser. Also equipped with a strong magnet, it can be attached to your washer and/or dryer, thereby liberating some space and making your cluttered laundry room a thing of the past.

Ultimately, we truly believe that your laundry room should be a place where you feel comfortable and at ease. That just isn’t possible if it’s a mess, dusty, or if there are too many things lying around which make it quite difficult for you to enjoy your time there. Laundry can be therapeutic, but only if the space is clear. Remember: a clear environment, a clear mind! So, try decluttering your laundry room today by following the five tips listed above.
