8 super quick spring cleaning tips
The biggest setback to keeping your laundry room organized is the mounds of clothes that need washing, especially if you have a big family. “Typically, it’s pretty easy to store detergent, fabric softener and other laundry needs in cabinets—but those dirty clothes can take up so much space,” says Alcazar. Solution? A sorting hamper or several stackable laundry baskets. “Train yourself and your family to drop darks, whites, linens and other separates in their respective baskets, which keeps the room navigable and the task at hand (washing) less intimidating. I also like to use over-the-door hooks and wall-mounted hooks to hang-dry delicate things or clean items,” says Alcazar.
