Challenge #19 – Laundry Room

DSC_0007

This is my laundry room. Two of my best friends live here. We spend a lot of time together, laughing over silly jokes and crying over stained clothes.

While this is an area of the house that does a great deal of cleaning, it rarely gets cleaned well. I have a shelf over my dryer that holds the soaps and stain removers. Sometime, before we moved in, some laundry soap was spilled on it. So it looked like this before I cleaned it this week.

It looks great now. It did take a lot of water to eventually get all of that soap off, but I didn’t spend more than 30 minutes cleaning the room. Here’s what I did:

1. I cleaned the wire shelf with sponges and lots of trips to the sink to rinse.

2. I cleaned the soap drawer on my washer with a Clorox wipe to get the mildew and dirt out of it.

3. On the washer I also cleaned the inside rubber ring around the door. We all know that gets nasty.

4. On the dryer I cleaned the lent trap with a vacuum hose to get out the stuff that gets trapped in the hose. (This is something that I do a few times a year to prevent fires.)

I’m guessing your laundry room could use some special attention too!

If you are getting tired of this exercise, stay with me, we only have a few more days of this. We can make it to the end!
