  1. Wipe down the exterior of the washer with a sponge or soft cloth dampened with a cleaning solution.

  2. Clean inside the washer's lid using the same sponge or cloth.

  3. Ensure to clean the rubber seals on the lid.

  4. For washers with a lint trap or removable detergent dispenser, remove and clean them with warm, soapy water.

  5. Use cotton swabs to remove grime and buildup from crevices, seals, and inside the lid.

  6. Pour one to two cups of white vinegar into the empty washer and run it on the hottest cycle.

Clean the Dryer: Schedule your dryer vent cleaning company to clean both the dryer vent and the inside of your dryer, especially beyond the lint filter area where dust and debris tend to accumulate. This buildup not only exacerbates respiratory issues but also poses a fire hazard.

  1. Wipe down the exterior of the dryer using a sponge or soft cloth dampened with cleaning solution.

  2. Remove lint from the filter compartment and lint filter.

Day Two: Free Yourself from Grime and Clutter

Clear away clutter from the top of your washer, dryer, and other surfaces in the laundry room, discarding empty containers, used dryer sheets, and unnecessary items. Dispose of any unused bottles of fluids as well. Next, address lint accumulation throughout the room. Once these tasks are completed, proceed with the following:

  1. Vacuum the entire laundry room thoroughly, from floor to ceiling, including underneath appliances and furniture.

  2. Clean or spot-treat furnishings, rugs, and textiles as needed.

  3. Use an all-purpose cleaner to wipe down countertops, doors, and shelves.

  4. Mop the floor, paying special attention to corners and under the edges of appliances.

  5. If possible, move the appliances aside to clean the floor beneath them.

Day Three: Organize for a Healthier Laundry Room

Following decluttering on day two, organizing your laundry room becomes more manageable.

  1. Begin by sorting your standard laundry products into two categories: those used in every load and those used occasionally, such as stain fighters. Keep daily products close to the washer for easy access, while placing less frequently used items on another shelf. Utilize open trays or baskets to keep items organized.

  2. Consider adding a decorative bowl to collect loose change, safety pins, buttons, dollar bills, and other pocket contents.

  3. Additionally, place a small trash can nearby to facilitate the disposal of dryer sheets and lint for added convenience.

Day Four: Inventory Your Supplies and Maintenance Services

With your supplies decluttered on day three, it's time to take inventory of your laundry essentials. Ensure you have backups and store them in their designated space to maintain organization. Essential items to have on hand include:

  1. Mending kit

  2. Iron

  3. Ironing board

  4. Starch

  5. White vinegar for stain removal and machine cleaning

  6. Hangers

  7. Folding drying rack

  8. Clothing steamer

Day Five: Make Your Space Relaxing

To create a more inviting atmosphere for laundry areas situated in unfinished basements or garages, consider incorporating some relaxing touches. Here are a few tips:

  1. Soft lighting to create a cozy ambiance.

  2. One or more outdoor rugs to add warmth and comfort underfoot.

  3. A room divider screen to delineate the laundry space and add a sense of privacy.

  4. Shelving for storage and organization of laundry supplies.

  5. Attractive baskets to conceal clutter and enhance the visual appeal of the space.

Day Six: Establish Your Routine

To maintain control over your laundry routine, rather than allowing it to overwhelm you, consider the following tips:

  1. Sort laundry as you go, rather than allowing piles to accumulate.

  2. Designate a specific basket or bin for separating hand washables to streamline the process.

  3. Leave the washer door open between loads to prevent odors from building up in the laundry room.

  4. Clean the lint filter after every use to maintain optimal dryer performance and reduce the risk of fire hazards.
