Use S Hooks and a Leaning Towel Rack to Sort Laundry and More...

I also use baskets and such but I couldn’t fit everything in my title. Over the years I have developed a few quirky ideas for sorting and storing laundry and I thought I would share a few ideas in this tutorial. I ordered 2 leaning towel racks from Amazon. ***It took a comment to make me realized that saying “sort laundry” makes you think of sorting prior to washing... what I am talking about is sorting the clothes out of the dryer.

One day I realized this would work well to sort laundry.

post

If needed, the towel rack is easily stored in the space between the washer and my wall.

Here is one scenario, the gold baskets are perfect for socks and underwear, the smaller white basket is perfect for T-shirts and lastly, the larger white basket would work for either shirts or shorts, kids pants...


The size basket that you use depends on who you are doing laundry for. Obviously there is a vast size difference between toddlers and teenagers.


Wouldn’t this also be great next to a changing table until they start crawling..

If you are not opposed to Dollar Tree, they have the best selection in sizes, shapes and colors for baskets.. and they are cheap!

post

These are from Target and they work well for adult/teen T-shirts’ and shorts.

Keep your eye on the Bullseye Dollar Spot for baskets.

post

These baskets are from Walmart and come in black and silver, too. This picture also is a good shot of the S hooks at work.

Here’s a favorite basket of mine. It’s for collecting eggs but works for this too.

Now if you like to label your baskets, you can’t go wrong with mini chalkboards and chalk markers.

post

Or you can go the dry erase route with clip on labels and colorful markers.

post

Here is another storage basket idea. I use clothes hangers to hang a basket to store my son’s socks in his closet.

post

I also use clothes hangers to hang the baskets above my dryer for easy sorting for socks and underwear. Sometimes I have been known to have 2 sets of these and just swap them out as needed.

post

Do you need more ways to use s hooks?


Here I am showing tanks and I used an s hook from Amazon and IKEA and even plastic hooks from Ikea work.

post

You can use them and an IKEA rail or curtain rod to store jeans.

post

S hooks can organize a big portion of my closet.
