Spring Cleaning Challenge: Laundry Room

8:57:00 PM



I think that this week is going to be almost completely a results week for the kitchen/laundry room Spring Cleaning Challenge. I want it all done for Easter this weekend and then next weekend is going to be the big first birthday celebration for the twins. I have some awesome decoration ideas that I am hoping to get to share with you for that. But first, we have to get the Spring Cleaning Challenge done. If you recall, this is what the area looked like before, and I made progress in my “extra” pantry (also known as pantry #2) in this post. Next up is the closet that the builder called the laundry room. This is what it looked like before:






Goals:
  • Hang up and fold all clothing
  • Organize all cleaning items. Organize all laundry items.
  • Wipe down all surfaces
  • Pull out washer and dryer & clean the floor
  • Clean out the dryer vent


Here’s what I’ve accomplished:

  • Hang up and fold all clothing
Everything is hung up. The folding is a little behind because I hurt my neck this weekend, but everything that needs to be folded was washed this week. There has been a lot to wash the past several weeks since we had consignment sale buys and a round of pink eye go through the twins.

  • Organize all cleaning items. Organize all laundry items.
Unlike the pantries, there wasn’t too much purging here. I did get rid of a can of oven cleaner that I’m not sure when I bought it. Since we have a self-cleaning oven, I’m not sure why we had them in the first place. We have tubs to keep cleaning and laundry tools and supplies—here they all are:

I have each labeled with what goes in each container. I switched it up a bit and put all the cleaning supplies I use all the time into the blue tub.

  • Wipe down all surfaces
I did it. Enough said.

  • Pull out washer and dryer & clean the floor
My dear husband was kind enough to help with this project. The floor was extremely gross. Lint was everywhere, and there had been a detergent spill a while back, so I tried really hard not to slip and bust my rear on the tile while cleaning up this nasty, slippery mess.


  • Clean out the dryer vent
This was surprisingly easy with a brush that my sister lent me. I guess that with a super short run to the outside, we just don’t clog up that much. I was thinking I had a huge fire hazard in there, so I was relieved to find out that we didn’t.

Here is the resulting beautiful laundry room. Hopefully it can stay this way for more than a week….I can dream, right?
