Wash away clutter in the laundry room with these storage tips and tricks.
Here, a collapsible clothes rod is attached to the cabinet for additional hanging space and the iron is safely stored in a wall-mount cooling rack. Keg-size containers have been replaced by smaller bottles of ultraconcentrated formulas that take up far less space and clean just as well. Be sure to read the directions so you use the right amount.
Replace solid cabinet doors with pegboard, which boosts ventilation and storage options. Gather tips and special care instructions with a clamp affixed to the pegboard. Use wire hooks to create dedicated hanging spots for lint rollers and other tools. Repurpose pencil canisters as door-mount holders for brushes and spot cleaners.
This laundry center has plenty of storage takeaways. Here, wire racks stand alone inside the armoire and put sprayers, glass containers, soaps, and ironing supplies in plain view and within easy reach. A former belt-and-tie organizer screws to the inside of the door to keep fragrant sachets at hand. A dry-erase board communicates the weekly laundry schedule and special care instructions.
Always make sure to check the pockets of clothes before you wash to avoid damage that crayons or coins might do to the washer, dryer, or garments. Label flip-top jars and use them as a catchall for any pocket finds, clothespins, or sewing accessories.
If your laundry room lacks enough depth for a traditional clothing bar, mount multiple double-hooks to a wall.
Separate laundry in a multibag rolling hamper and speed up wash day. Get even more out of the hamper by topping it with a flip top folding board or padded ironing board.
With so much to do in a laundry area, there's no room for wasted space. Here, a 9-inch-wide cart holding laundry supplies and towels puts the area between the dryer and wall to good use. The cart has wheels so it can easily be moved.
Clear up floor space by installing a pulldown ironing board that's built into a cabinet or wall. Or stash the board in a tall cabinet that features a cutout in a top shelf.
Everyone has a collection of clothes that need special treatment, whether it's spot removal, dry-cleaning, or hand-washing. Allocate a special basket or bag to handle these garments.
Store detergent--lots of it--in a plastic trash bin attached to a cabinet door that's hinged at the bottom. It tilts out for easy access, while a bracket lets the door open only 45 degrees to eliminate worries about spillage.
Display an array of detergents (and catch those pesky drips) with a rubber-top lazy Susan. Repurpose a pencil canister to hold spot cleaners.
