Starting Small by Cleaning the Laundry Room First

Starting Small by Cleaning the Laundry Room First

Spring cleaning doesn't mean you need to overhaul your entire home. We say, "Start small, then branch out." Seeing as one of the dustiest and unorganized spaces in our homes is the laundry space, so once that area is all sparkling and shiny, you'll have full confidence to take care of the rest of your home.


1. Set a Timer. Give yourself a full hour (not including getting the cleaning equipment together) to dive into the dust crevies, floors, and extra-dirty area behind the appliances. But no more than that - you don't want to be breathing in all that dust for too long.
2. Treat it Like a Kitchen: Kitchens tend to have little touches of personalization that make them comfortable and unique spaces to hang out in. We're going to assume you don't own one of those turbo-charged washers that clean clothes at mach-3, so it's probably a good idea to make it a nice space to hang out in while you're waiting.
3. Add Plentiful Storage. Embedding storage is an art and the laundry room is no different. Make a space for all those unsightly, bright detergent bottles and integrate baskets that complement the architecture of the room.
4. Make It Smart: If you didn't know, you can add remote notification systems that'll save you time from repeated trips to the laundry room. Most are available for around $99.
