1. Delegate responsibility:  When it comes to doing the laundry and keeping the room organized, delegate some responsibilities to other family members rather than trying to do it all yourself.

2.  Walk them through the process of doing the laundry:

a. Simple reference guide on how to treat stains put on inside cabinet
b. Hand-wash delicate include,  what cycle you want to use, temperature, detergent
c. Create separate hampers for white, medium and dark color clothes so you don’t have to separate twice.
d. Have a hand wash and dry cleaner bags. If there isn’t room in the laundry room put them in your closet, over the door bags.

3. Use a separate hamper to collect clothes that need to be dry-cleaned.

4. If space is limited, add shelving above doors, in corners, and above the washer and dryer.

5. Clean dryer vents: When was the last time you had your dryer vent professionally cleaned? This will help with the efficiency of the drying and prevent fires in your home.

6. Use an over-the-door ironing board if space is limited.

7. Use an accordion drying rack.  It’s retractable and easy to store.

Designate one area for folding laundry a wall-mounted folding rack comes in handy. Immediately put the laundry away or in the bedrooms and delegate other family members to put the clothes away.

8. If you store things up high, keep a stepstool or ladder nearby.

9. Make a list of what you have and what you need. Maintaining a list of the things you use makes it easier to know when you need to replenish. Buying in bulk isn’t always the cost-effective, especially if you don’t have the storage space.

10. Store frequently used items within reach and less frequently used items up higher. Keep laundry soap near the washer, hangers near the dryer, and spray starch near the ironing board.

11. Use a permanent maker or label maker to clearly label containers.
