I’m sharing some simple laundry room ideas with help from #Tide as part of a Tide sponsored series for Socialstars™.
Simple Laundry Room Ideas
As part of our partnership with Tide this year, we’ve shared some of our favorite laundry tips including how to wash LuLaRoe clothing and our baseball mom tips while using Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® laundry detergent pacs.
Over the past few months, we’ve gathered some of our favorite simple laundry room ideas that making it easy to take care of our mountains of laundry each week!
If you use this our checklist of laundry washing tips, you’ll see how a few changes combined with a dependable and convenient laundry detergent like Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® laundry detergent pacs, can make this chore just a bit easier!
Separate the Laundry
One of the easiest ideas in this list of simple laundry room ideas involves laundry baskets!
I went out and bought everyone their own laundry basket. Now we do our best to just do one person’s laundry at a time. This cuts down on time spent sorting the laundry once it comes out of the washer and dryer. If you’re working to encourage your kids to help with laundry, when it’s already sorted, you can hand the basket over and get them helping out!

This has been a huge time saver for us in our laundry room.
Prep the Laundry
One thing that has made laundry go more smoothly around our house is working to get everyone to help prep their own laundry. This means turning clothes right-side-in and making sure socks aren’t all balled up. It also means making sure underwear and shorts are pulled apart before the go in the laundry basket.
This idea is another time saver because we don’t have to spend time prepping the clothes to make sure they get as clean as we want them!
Laundry Lost and Found
While we try to get everyone to remember to empty their pockets, as the kids get older I do check everything before putting it into the washing machine.
Keep a basket or container in your laundry area that is for items pulled out of pockets. Sometimes I miss things in the pockets so it’s easy to pull out the treasures from the washing machine and toss them in the basket.
Then when someone is missing something, it’s easy to point them to the basket! It may not save your kids time, but it will make your laundry routine easier!
Stock Up on Staples
Stocking up on laundry staples is one of the most simple laundry room ideas. It just makes sense to make sure that you always have everything you need like detergent, stain treater, and other laundry items.
I’ve added Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® to our monthly order of household supplies. This means we never run out!
Since we’ve started using Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy®, my list of needed supplies is a bit shorter. The 4-in-1 laundry pacs clean, brighten, fight stains and protect our clothes every time we wash them to the clean that I want to see in our clothes.
They’ve made our laundry routine convenient. I’ve gotten the hang of putting PODS in BEFORE the clothes and the laundry pacs clean and condition our clothes in one step. They protect them from stretching and fading in the washing machine.
They get the job done. Laundry is a breeze when you find a detergent that works well for your family’s needs. Get it delivered regularly and laundry will be less of a chore in your house!
(Remember, like all household products, keep out of reach of children!)
Fold As You Go
Folding as you go definitely fits on the list of simple laundry room ideas. It happens to be the most challenging one for me!
The idea is to fold the laundry as it comes out of the dryer. You don’t spend time moving laundry around the house and you avoid wrinkles if you fold everything once it’s dry.
I’ll admit I don’t do it as often as I like but I try!
Over the past few months, I’ve learned the ideas for laundry rooms that work in our house. I’m building them into our routines so we spend less time on laundry and more time together!
Of course, you can also turn laundry into time together by getting the whole family involved! Even Carrigan can help fold things like washcloths and dish towels!
