The Clutter Cure: Laundry & Baths

Continuing on with our series on clutter, today we will look at the laundry room and bathrooms and some specific things we can to do start 2013 off on the right foot.


Laundry Room:

            Cleaning Products- did you try a detergent and not like it? Don’t keep it around                          any longer. Give it away to a friend or donate it. No need for it to clutter up
                         your cabinets.

            Miscellaneous socks-we all have them. The washer or dryer eats sock and you
                         hang onto the spares, waiting for the match to appear. Do yourself a favor 
                         and throw them away.

            Brooms & Mops-clear out the stack of brooms and mops and throw away  anything
                        you are not using or no longer works. Hang hooks behind the door to hang
                        these items and keep them looking neater.



            Beauty Products-Remove all bottles and jars from the counter. Store everything                           in drawers or baskets under the sink. Throw away expired items. Give                           away duplicates or place in a nice basket in your guest bath for guests to use.

            Linens-Toss threadbare towels and mismatched bed linens or cut into smaller                                squares for cleaning rags.


When in doubt, ask yourself these questions.

  1. Do I really need this?
  2. Do I love it?
  3. Do I already have something else that will work?
  4. Do I use it regularly?
  5. Where am I going to put it?
  6. How hard would it be to replace this item someday if I needed to?
