Quick house clean up #3: Pick Up Dirty Laundry and Clothes. Good preventive measures will keep clothing mess from becoming a mess issue in the first place, but if strewn laundry has taken over your house, never fear! Getting all the clothes laundered and back into the closets and dressers will make your house look much cleaner.
- Rule # 1 for clothes is this: If they’re on the floor, they’re dirty.
- Using either a laundry hamper or large trash bag, go through the house and put any clothes you encounter into the container. Be sure to check floors, couches and chairs, kids’ rooms, closets, and all surfaces for clothes which should not be there.
- Once done, take the bags or hampers to the laundry room and get started washing the dirty clothes.
- Be sure that as clean laundry comes out of the dryer, you immediately fold or hang it and put the clothes into closets or dresser drawers to prevent future clothing mess.
