  • I am currently watching House Rules and am amazed at the laundries they produce. So beautiful and functional. All I do is dream……



  • I gave up on that a long time ago. Our laundry is also the toilet and backyard shed so there’s stuff everywhere. We do have 3 cupboards and 2 sets of shelves, but it never seems to be under control clutter wise



  • Don’t let it build up works for me!



  • I have a washing basket for dark and light wash. I wash it, hang it out, when dry iron and fold it and put it straight away. I will not do a next wash till the last one is put away. In practice this means that my wash never piles up.



  • Keep all detergents etc in a cupboard – have a small basket / caddy for sponges and small bits and pieces. Also have laundry hampers that clothes get sorted in straight away. If the hamoers can go inside a cupboard then the mess can be hidden



  • My laundry isn’t tidy until the washing is done. Which as we know, is never completely done. Our laundry hosts our pantry, washer/drier, deep freezer, sink, cleaning items, bin and dog food. We don’t have the luxury of space but less is definitely more. Re-home non essential items



  • I wash nearly everyday keeps most of my washing at bay.



  • get a cupboard! lol there are many nifty little ideas that you can try out.



  • I like the less is best approach too. I dislike clutter.



  • Some great tips here thanks.



  • I am liking JOHTKOOL comment. :-)



  • I generally sorting then wash ,hang out &when dry flood ,put away straight away .So it is back in draws,not much mess.



  • Go to IKEA or Howard’s Storage World, so many nice ideas that are budget friendly :D



  • I’ve made life easier for me in the laundry as I’ve been using the new Radiant colour sort washing liquid that I can wash dark & lighter clothes together. It works!



  • I have a washing basket with lid on for each member of the family, they put their laundry in it I sort and wash. Once all done it goes back in the basket delivered to the said member for them to put away. Even the youngest in the house (4) knows how to do it
