In our homes the unsung and hardly glamorous laundry room serves to keep the engine of our lives running smoothly. Your laundry room can be dirty. Therefore, you need to clean your laundry room and make it a regular household chore. First thing that you can do is clean the sink. Soaking your soiled clothes in the sink leads to accumulation of dirt over time and gives it a really bad odor. Also, the murky surface needs to be cleaned so you can keep soaking your clothes in a sanitized sink. Here is a tip. Add a cup of vinegar, half a cup of baking soda and detergent. Use this mixture to lather the sink and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Now, scrub it well with a sponge to make sure that all the dirt is buffed away. Block the drainage of the sink and fill it up with water. Let it sit for another 10 minutes. Drain and wash. This is a great way to clean the sink and leave it sparkling and odorless.
Your washing machine that helps you clean your dirty laundry everyday needs some cleaning of its own too. Load a full machine of hot water, without clothes, and add a cup of baking powder, bleach and vinegar. Run it for a complete cycle. Then, vacuum the laundry room floor everyday and use a disinfectant and floor cleaner twice a week. This will ensure that your floor remains clean so you do not have to worry about exposing your clothes to germs if they fall on the floor.
