Laundry, the never ending chore in our house.  Honestly, I never thought being a family of four would result in so much laundry but as the kids are getting older, more active and in more "after-school" activities I am finding that our laundry room is becoming a well used area of the house.  

Our laundry "room" truly is more of a laundry closet in our second bathroom.  It is small space so we have had to really focus on good organization and creative space savers.  To give our laundry room a little creative design I decided to make a Laundry Room Lint Bin that we mounted to the wall.  This is a great DIY project that has allowed us to keep our space a lot cleaner and it gives it some fun wall decor too!

Looks great right!?!  I love it!!  It adds a modern touch to our laundry room and gives us some an easy way to get ride of that laundry lint that just keeps multiplying!  I am currently trying to find other ways to make laundry even easier and enjoyable since it is something we will be doing for a long time!

On top of doing some small DIY changes in our laundry room I have changed to the Member’s Mark® Ultimate Clean Laundry Detergent in Fresh Scent from Sam's Club.  Like I said, we are constantly doing laundry which means we are constantly buying detergent.  Laundry detergent can be pricey so finding a product that not only works better than other detergent but is a fraction of the cost really helps us financially as we tackle those laundry piles.

Member's Mark Ultimate Clean Liquid Laundry Cleaner performs as well or better than the national leading brand of detergent and this laundry detergent is made for families like ours with busy kids who always find ALL THE STAINS!  It is patented with Ultimate Clean Technology that locks on tough stains and lifts them out in all temperature settings. I LOVE the no-mess dispenser that also had a dosing cup to ensure the accurate measurement for all load sizes plus it is compatible and safe for all washing machines.  Something we all need to be aware of with all of the new styles of machines.  This is truly the best laundry detergent for a home like ours. 

As you start to get creative with your laundry routine make sure you start adding  the Member’s Mark® Ultimate Clean Laundry Detergent in Fresh Scent from Sam's Club.  Not only will you fall in love with the scent but you will be thankful for the hard work that detergent does for your clothing!

  1. So cute! I need to make one. Plus I like to save the lint to make fire starters for camping so this would be easier to hang on to this way! CUTE!

  2. Yes, your lint holder does look great. I like it. My lint holder looks a lot like a repurposed kleenex box :-) Yours is much nicer! If you like to compost, lint is great for the compost bin.

  3. I do not have anything that creative. I love this idea though because you can put right next to the dryer!
