Laundry Room Cleaning Tips
Keeping your laundry room clean and organized makes staying on top of the seemingly endless pile of dirty clothes less stressful. Use these laundry room cleaning tips to streamline your laundry room duties!
- If you have a high-efficiency (HE) machine, only use HE detergent to reduce soap-scum buildup.
- Eyeballing the detergent is quick and easy, but it’s also a waste. Use a measuring cup to avoid waste and excessive suds. After all, excessive suds often lead to excessive residue.
- If you have a front-loading machine, keep the door cracked after a load to allow the wash drum to dry out.
- Use different hampers for whites, colors and delicates to avoid laundry mishaps and speed up the folding.
- Keep a dedicated trash bin for dryer lint as a reminder to always empty it before each load.
