Homes+ (Australia) - - BEFORE & AFTER -

Try us­ing sep­a­rate, la­belled bas­kets for coloureds, whites, darks and tow­els, so you can eas­ily throw a wash on with­out hav­ing to sort through it all.

Cre­ate des­ig­nated spots (la­belled if nec­es­sary) for items like clean­ing cloths, pegs and laun­dry pow­der. Re­turn items to their homes af­ter use. In­stall hooks or shelves, or add a free-stand­ing cup­board or mo­bile draw­ers.

Keep a back-up sup­ply of laun­dry de­ter­gent. Add it to your shop­ping list when it gets low.

Start a box or drawer for lonely, lost socks so even­tu­ally they match up.

Keep sheet sets to­gether by wrap­ping them in bun­dles. Wrap a flat sheet around a fit­ted sheet and pil­low­cases.

Make a reg­u­lar time to do your wash­ing – every Satur­day, every morn­ing af­ter your shower or every sec­ond even­ing, de­pend­ing on the size of your house­hold and pref­er­ence.
