Laundry. It鈥檚 one of those chores we tend to avoid as long as possible 鈥 let鈥檚 be honest we鈥檝e all rocked swimsuit bottoms on a Friday. But, it doesn鈥檛 have to be this way. It鈥檚 easy to make your laundry room both cozy and productive 鈥 you just need the right tools.

It鈥檚 all part of our Storage and Organization Series with Target, a series devoted to getting organized as we usher in a new year. In addition to a whole variety of organizational content here on Brit + Co, we鈥檝e partnered with four guest bloggers to ask them how they get things organized as well. Check it all out here.

Now, as your mom might say, it鈥檚 time to put the FUN in functional ;)

1.聽Triple Laundry Sorter with Removable Clothes Rack聽($109): Set the scene with the most awesome clothes rack we鈥檝e ever seen. I realize that is a super nerdy thing to say, but the three hanging hampers are a laundry room dream come true.

2.聽Wooden Hangers聽($16): Next, make sure you have wooden or plastic hangers in your laundry room. You鈥檒l use these to hang those extra special garments that need to hang to dry, or for things that you know you want to wear right away before they get wrinkly.

3. Iron and Ironing Board: Of course, you鈥檝e gotta keep those clothes of yours pressed and at the ready. We use this聽Black & Decker White Steam Iron聽($11) on the daily here at Brit HQ. And up until recently, we were doing the old folded towel on the table trick as an ironing board. This extra wide聽Threshold Wide Top Ironing Board聽($50) is just the thing you need, and you can even add a聽Reversible Ironing Board Cover聽($19) of extra style points.

4. Prep Products: When it comes to washers and dryers, unfortunately not all fabrics and articles of clothing were created equal. Stock up on聽Static Guard聽($3),聽Faultless Premium Starch聽($2) and聽Method Dryer Activated Fabric Softener聽($7) to keep your clothes looking brand new every time you wash 鈥檈m.聽You can use plastic bins and baskets like these Sterilite Stacking Storage Bins ($15) to keep everything organized.

5.聽Evercare Gentle Fabric Shaver聽($10): Sometimes, your clothes come out of the washer and dryer looking just as tired as they did when they went in. For those, use one of these handy fabric shavers. It will instantly remove any pilling or irregularity on your garments 鈥 just make sure to use it gently.

6.聽Room Essentials Storage Cubes ($7): Where do you store those orphan socks every time you sort your laundry? In a聽couple bins that live in your laundry room,聽that鈥檚聽where.

7.聽Washi Wall: To add a little personality to our laundry space, we added washi tape to the wall. This is easy to rotate out and replace when you鈥檙e bored of your design, and you don鈥檛 need to worry about the tape getting ruined due to the steam and moisture in your laundry room.

8.聽Bins and Baskets: Finally, lots of bins and baskets for sorting, folding and storing odds and ends.

Ready to schedule your next laundry day? We thought so.
