Sorting The Laundry

There are many ways to organise your laundry. From dirty clothes, to cleaning products, detergent and even toilet paper, having a good system in place for sorting the laundry can be a lifesaver. 

It’s best to devise a system that works to your own needs – after all, you’re the one who has to use it. We’ve put together a list of ideas and suggestions to get you thinking about storage possibilities and how to get your laundry sorted. 

Use multiple washing baskets

A large part of sorting the laundry is separating your washing into colours, whites and darks. Simplify this process by having multiple washing baskets in action. You can encourage family members to sort their dirty clothes before placing them into the baskets. 

If you’re short on space, stackable containers or wire basket drawers are a fantastic alternative. Consider putting labels onto the baskets to to make the system easy for kids and forgetful adults. 

Store washing powder in containers

We don’t realise how much washing powder actually creeps out of the sides of the box and onto the floor. To save wastage and excess mess, store washing powder in plastic or glass containers. You can use one large container that fits a whole box of powder, or several smaller ones to make them easier to handle. 

Simply make sure the opening can accommodate scooping and you’re all good to go! 

Sort laundry items in cube storage shelves

A frequent complaint when sorting the laundry is a lack of storage possibilities. Cube storage systems are great for this very reason. They are slim, come in many different sizes and can be used to store a large range of laundry items in plain view. 

Items that can be stored in these shelves include towels, cleaning products, spare washing powder, toilet paper, pet food.

Just ensure you keep heavier items on the bottom shelves and lighter items such as towels and toilet paper up top. 

Keep a jar for loose change handy

Who hasn’t found loose change when doing the washing? The answer is probably no one. Keep a jar handy to collect all loose change in one spot. Let the jar fill to the top and then use the extra dollars to buy something nice for the house such as flowers.
