What is the most efficient way to organize piles of clothing in the laundry room?

Keeping The Laundry Room Organized

There are a couple of key strategies for keeping your laundry room neat even when faced with several piles of clothes.

* Keep at least three baskets in your laundry room to separate clothes. You can either buy a pre-sectioned laundry sorter or use a few wicker baskets for this purpose. This is a way to sort clothes into piles for washing while still maintaining order and organization in your laundry room.

*To keep your laundry under control, try to do one pile from your laundry sorter each day to keep the piles from becoming an overwhelming and daunting task.

*Designate a space to keep your detergents and other cleaning products in your laundry room. Most people have shelving of some sort, but a bin with separate compartments a basket will also do the trick. The object of laundry room organization is to keep products and clothing in one place so that you can have easy access to it.

*Clean hoses and vents in your laundry room regularly to keep dust from building up. A dryer vent cleaning brush is particularly important as dryers let off extreme amounts of dry heat, so you don't want buildup in your dryer vents from lint, dust, etc.

If you don't have room for a wastebasket to throw away dryer lint, you can buy one of those miniature wastebaskets (with the swinging lid)to sit on top of your dryer to throw the lint away. I found mine at the dollar store and only empty it once a week.
