Use these laundry organizers to gain control of your laundry room once and for all! They are life-changing.
When I think of the words “laundry organizers,” I think of someone that comes in and does my laundry for me. A girl can dream, right?
Even if the magic laundry fairy godmother doesn’t exist, these tools will make your job a billion times easier – and even a bit more fun!
Overcome Laundry Anxiety
I know first-hand how it feels to look at your home and not know where to start. I shared all about it in my step-by-step guide to cleaning your home after depression.
The good news is that it’s possible to get control of your home and not let it control you. If you are feeling overwhelmed, my spring cleaning checklist (with a free printable) is helpful all year long! Take the thinking out of it and just start attacking that list. It’ll feel amazing!
10 Must-Have Laundry Organizers
The laundry room is actually one of the easiest places to organize and will give you the best satisfaction at the end!
Check out my list of my favorite laundry organizers below. As you pick out the ones to use, keep your current laundry area in mind. Use systems that fit in your room.
Even if you don’t think you have space, do what Clutter Keeper suggests: “Look around your room and observe all the wasted space you could utilize. Do you have extra space near the ceiling? Suspend some shelves. Is there wasted space between the machines and the wall? Build a custom shelf. Wasted space can hold some of the best places to store exactly what you own.”
Here are the best laundry organizers that will fit in almost any space!
1. DIY Dollar Store Organizers
Let’s start out clearing up something: you don’t have to spend a lot to have an organized laundry room. Nope!

You can make your own organizers on the cheap. All you need are some containers, washi tape, and alphabet stickers. The end result is unified and beautiful.
The best part is, that you can use any color of tape and stickers and make it look completely unique. If you have a Cricut cutting tool, you can even make your own labels.
Be creative and have fun with it!
2. Victorian Drying Rack
Something else you’ll have to keep sorted in your laundry room are the “hang to dry” clothes. There are lots of DIY options out there, but I’m a fan of this one because it’s just so lovely!
This keeps your line-drying clothes sorted and adds beauty to the room at the same time. 5 Dog Farm dries all of her clothes this way.
Plus, since it hangs from the ceiling, it’s not really in the way.
3. Glass Jars With Lids
These glass jars can hold laundry detergent, detergent pods, dryer sheets, and even clothespins. They look pretty, especially when you buy them as a set and use a few of them together.
Lots of lifestyle bloggers use them, including Splendry; and it’s no wonder. They are useful and cute at the same time. The entire laundry area looks so much more tied together when you store detergent in these jars.
4. Laundry Cart Under The Counter
If you have room under your counters, add a rolling laundry cart. I just love the idea of storing it out of the way, under the cabinet. If you don’t have an empty cabinet space like this, it’s an easy DIY fix – and it makes laundry time so much easier too!
You can even create a divided laundry basket for easy sorting. Then, store it underneath the counter and leave room for walking – and folding on top of the counter too!
5. Rubber Bands For Rolled Clothes
Yes, I included rubber bands as one of the laundry organizers that you need.
These are such a tiny thing but they make a huge difference! When you roll your clothes, use a rubber band to keep them rolled. This way, when you look for a specific piece of clothing, you won’t unravel everything – they stay put!
Seriously, this one little hack is life-changing. Use this when you pack your suitcase too. Keeping things organized is half the battle.
6. Farmhouse Sink
What do you do with clothes that need to be pre-treated? Pull them out and let them soak in a sink in your laundry room. Having a deep farmhouse sink like this one makes cleaning tough clothes so much easier.
I really love the spraying nozzle the most. I can just see someone hosing off muddy boots in that sink, or spraying out small trash cans.
Another benefit of a large sink like this is that you can place a piece of wood on top and instantly have more room to fold your clothes.
7. Cube Storage Bench
Another creative laundry organizer is a storage bench. This laundry room doubles as their mudroom, so there are hooks for keys and places for the shoes. I can see using these cubes for storing cleaning supplies too!
8. Cube Organizers
If you have space, install some shelves, and use cube organizers. This is one of the best tips I’ve ever found from Home Made Lovely. These cube organizers can hold everything from rags to cleaning supplies. They make your shelves look beautiful and uniform.
9. Washer and Dryer Drawers
Some washer and dryer sets come with their own organizing systems, like the ones pictured here. If yours don’t come with drawers, there are often pedestals with drawers that you can purchase, or you can make your own.
10. Laundry Sorting Bags
Finally, the multiple-bag sorting system has to be one of my favorites! Bring in a basket full of clothes, then just start sorting them into the different bags. It’s small and fits into any space.
I also love how the bags can come out so they are easy to dump and wash. Cherished Bliss has an entire laundry room reveal with tons of storage and decor ideas you’ll want to steal.
There you have it! When it comes to sorting your clothes, organizing your cleaning supplies, and keeping your laundry room organized, the right tools make all the difference. Sometimes all you need are a few more baskets and totes.
Before you buy anything new, take an inventory of what you have, and evaluate what’s working and what isn’t. Then, buy storage solutions that specifically address your needs. Measure your shelves and plan what you’ll put in them.
When you create a laundry room just for your space, you’ll be more likely to keep it organized.
