The Best Products At The Container Store To Help You Organize Your Laundry Room

Let's be honest; it's difficult to keep the laundry room organized. Sure, we all have good intentions of maintaining a neat and orderly space, but without the proper organization products and tools, our goal seems almost unattainable. According to Chron, the average American family does about 50 pounds of laundry per week (yikes), so it's no wonder the laundry room looks like a war zone. However, there are products that can prevent your space from getting to that point that don't require a ton of work or money... and they're all at your local Container Store.

So if you want to get your space together and spend more time doing the things you like instead of sifting through piles of clothes and junk, we've compiled a list of must-have items to help make laundry day a whole lot easier. Here are five of the best products at the Container Store to help you organize your laundry room.

Compact accordion clothes drying rack

The first product you absolutely need to keep an organized laundry room is a drying rack. Think of how many times you've needed to air-dry your laundry and have had nowhere to put it. You end up either throwing it into the dryer and hoping it doesn't shrink or hanging it up in another room, further cluttering your home. Buying something like the Polder compact accordion clothes drying rack ensures your wet clothes have a space to dry while limiting the chaos in your laundry room.

Priced at $33, the Polder drying rack has a 4.7-star rating. Customers have expressed how simple it is to assemble and disassemble, and its metal frame makes it extremely durable. It has a lock feature, so you don't need to worry about it collapsing, and because it's compact, it leaves a lot of room for you to move about the laundry space.

OXO expandable on-the-wall organizer

More often than not, homeowners prefer to keep their cleaning supplies in their laundry room, including the necessary tools, such as mops, brooms, and dusters. Unfortunately, those items take up a good amount of floor space, which you desperately need in the laundry room. The OXO expandable on-the-wall organizer offers you the convenience of keeping all of those cleaning tools in one place, so they don't take up valuable real estate on the floor. It has four hooks, as well as four CamLocks that automatically adjust to grip and secure handles.

With a 4.8-star rating, the OXO organizer is one of the Container Store's best-selling products. Customers said it's perfect for small spaces and is easy to install. Many appreciate the versatility of the product and how you can customize it to meet your needs. At $30, it's an affordable way to get your cleaning tools up and out of the way.

IDesign Linus large divided tote

Instead of walking into a laundry room and seeing loose bottles everywhere, keep your cleaning products in an organizational tote or caddy. The IDesign Linus large divided tote is a large, compartmental plastic bin that's big enough to hold all of your laundry room necessities. Its handle makes it easy to grab whenever you need it. The tote is designed with drainage cutouts to get rid of excess water, which can lead to water moisture buildup and mold. Additionally, it's made of hard plastic, so you can count on it lasting you a long time.

Because of its compact size, it perfectly fits under the sink or on a counter and doesn't require much shelf space. The $27 IDesign tote has a 5-star rating, so it's safe to assume it gets the job done. Customers love how it accommodates all bottle shapes (even the more unconventional ones) and how well it fits under the sink.

Sterilite stacking laundry basket

No laundry room is complete without a basket to hold your clean and dirty clothes, and the Sterilite stacking laundry basket is especially great for small laundry rooms where floor space is limited. Offered individually or as a set of six, the Sterilite laundry basket gives you the opportunity to organize your laundry by household member, or maybe you use them to dictate which clothes are clean and which need to be washed. How you organize your baskets is up to you, but because they're stackable, they won't be scattered all over the laundry room.

These Sterilite baskets are a best-seller at the Container Store, with 4.7 stars. Some reviewers say they have a different basket per family member, and some use them to divide folded and unfolded clothes. Others praised the size, saying they didn't have to squeeze through doorways to get the basket inside. One customer said the baskets perfectly filled the wasted space in her laundry room.

3-Tier over the door drying rack

For laundry rooms with little-to-no space, the 3-Tier over the door drying rack is a great option. This way, you still get the benefits of a drying rack, but you don't need to compromise any space in your laundry room. Even if you have the space, this is a wonderful addition to your laundry room. Use it in tandem with the Polder drying rack to double the amount of space to air-dry your belongings. The best part is that this over-the-door drying rack is also collapsable, so you can put it down when it isn't in use.

Its design allows it to fit over doors and shower stalls up to 2 inches wide, so you can move it throughout the home with ease. With a 5-star rating, this over-the-door drying rack is a must-have for any laundry room. Customers raved at its space-saving capabilities and said they would definitely purchase it again.
