Home Living : May 3rd 2011
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, May 3, 2011 Give mum a break on her special day » ADVERTISING FEATURE On Mother's Day, give mum time and take over some of her household chores. Cook, clean and even get the house organised. Start from the kitchen and make your way to the laundry. In most homes, laundry ends up as a dumping ground for dirty clothes. With busy lifestyles, often mums treat laundry as a chore. Now you can make her life easier by creating an efficient laundry system that she will treasure. Tip 1: Maximise laundry space Take a good look at the laundry -- are you maximising all possible storage? There are many inexpensive wall helpers that take advantage of wall and door space. Invest in things like an iron organiser that will store your iron and spray neatly, while a vacuum and brush tidy holds your vacuum firmly on the wall. An ironing hanger uses door space efficiently by keeping newly ironed shirts crisp and organised. Tip 2: Safely store chemicals Protect your family from spills and accidents by storing cleaning products out of reach. It's a good idea to group and store these in caddies and baskets. Tip 3: Save money and the environ- ment Why not ditch the dryer and take advantage of the sun's free solar energy to dry clothes? Foldaway clothes hangers such as a rail tier, mobile airer and wall dryer are not only energy saving but will also reduce your electricity bill. A great tip is to hang heavy items like jeans inside out and give them a firm shake first so they dry with fewer wrinkles and avoid fading. Tip 4: Create an organised laundry It's all about workflow. A well planned layout can cut time spent in the laundry. Use space so you can pre-sort, wash, dry, fold and distribute all your clothes. Shops have shelving systems or easy-build custom laundry units that can be built to suit your laundry space to create an efficient washing station. Involving the family will help your laun- dry get done faster. Encourage your family to pre-sort clothes with a divided laundry cart. Tip 5: Love your laundry Eliminate chaos and stress from your laundry by surrounding yourself with stylish laundry helpers. Beautifully labelled containers such as laundry buckets, powder tins and peg buckets will neatly store all your laundry essen- tials and create a calming and clean atmosphere, while making a tidy laun- dry easy to maintain. A chic laundry hamper will keep dirty clothes off the floor, creating a stress-free and even a pleasant room in your home. Surprise mum with a sorted and organised laundry on Mother's Day.
