4. Hang A Drying Rack
We’ve all seen those drying racks you can buy that sit on the floor and hold the clothes while they dry. Although they are a great solution for clothes that need to dry but can’t go in the dryer, they get in the way sitting on the floor all the time and take up precious space. Instead of leaving them on the floor, hang them on the wall like this so they can easily collapse out of the way when not in use!

5. Leave Reminders On The Washer
Sadly, my husband has ruined a few of my favorite pieces of clothing because he put all the clothes from the washing machine in the dryer. Rookie mistake right there. Everyone knows (at least they should know) that not everything can go in the dryer. In order to avoid anyone ruining your clothes or to help you remember what can’t be dried, write reminders and notes on top of the washing machine for those that will be changing the clothes over to the dryer.

6. Install Shelves/Cabinets
Shelves and cabinets are a must for laundry spaces in my eyes. There are so many products that you need to keep around for use and not being able to put them somewhere makes the room look cluttered and unorganized. If you don’t already have shelves or cabinets in your laundry space, you can easily install your own. You can fabricate your own, or you can buy pre-fabricated shelves and simply hang them on your walls. Having the room to put all your laundry products and supplies will change your life and make doing laundry so much easier.
