Spring Cleaning #1 Laundry Room

I realize I have very little following here :) But I thought I would post my spring cleaning whims for the next week or so. I have no clue what has gotten into me. If you would like to join the insanity then follow along. I will post a little 1/2 hour job for the day to attempt cleaning up your home.
Today's area is the laundry room. For us here it is a busy room. The dog lives in here, and so does 7 people worth of laundry. The dirties actually live outside the laundry room in these
I picked them up at Costco awhile back. Darks go in one, lights the other. Towels and sheets got in the wicker basket shoved in the corner.
For organization in the laundry room I have cloth baskets for each kid arranged on the shelf/rack my husband built for me. It offers a place to toss all the folded clothes and hang up those items that need to be hung

Supplies go in the cabinets. I have a lot of cabinet space so the cabinet on the left also temporarily houses clothes that are too small for one child and waiting to be passed down to the next. Eventually they get transferred to buckets upstairs.

So today if you want to follow along on my little spring cleaning trip spruce up your laundry room.
Dig behind the washer and dryer for strays (oh my I had a lot of socks that had gone over.)
Wipe down the outside of the washer and dryer.
Put away all the clothes that are piling up.
When you have done all this start a load of towels. They are easy and quick to fold :)

Wow, you've been busy! Doesn't Spring cleaning feel so good when it's done?

It does feel good. I did way more than the laundry room today. I cleaned the bulk pantry, picked up the garage, and actually put laundry away. Seriously I hate to clean.

Great timing - I've just finished one set of laundry room improvements. Have to wait for the gas mains people to do their work next Thursday before I can do the last few pieces tho'.

I've included a link as it was back in January... I'm learning to be patient just lately...

Your's looks so organized congrats.

Goodness Mrs W that was not spring cleaning that was a remodel. Looks great. Love the poppies! It is great inspiration to see others ideas, sparks creativity. If you didn't pick up on it my laundry has a giraffe theme. Right down to the yellow paint and brown accents :)
