HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, October 4, 2011 9 HOMELIVING Don't air your dirty laundry JANITA SINGH Creating an efficient laundry system can make everyone's life easy. Organise your bedroom. This spring, sort out your mess and live much happier and healthier. In most homes, the laundry ends up as a dumping ground for dirty clothes. Creating an efficient laundry system can make everyone's life easy. Tip 1: Maximise laundry space Are you maximising all possible storage? There are many inexpensive wall helpers that take advantage of wall and door space. Invest in things like iron organisers that will store your iron and spray neatly, while a vacuum and brush tidy holds your vacuum firmly to 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 acci- dents by storing cleaning products out of reach. Group and store these in caddies and baskets. The handy large caddy helps transport cleaning products with you as you clean, minimising risk of chemicals left around the house. Tip 3: Save money and the environment Why not ditch the dryer and take advantage of the sun's free solar energy to dry clothes? Foldaway clothes hangers such as rail tier mobile airer and wall dryer are not only energy saving but will also reduce your electricity bill. 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 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. 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 essentials, create a calming and clean atmos- phere, while making a tidy laundry easy to maintain. A chic laundry hamper will keep dirty clothes off the laundry floor, creating a stress-free and even pleasant room in your home.
