  16. 16. WASHER AND DRYER  The heart of the laundry room is naturally what creates most of the mess.
  17. 17. DRYER   the lint trap on the dryer needs to be cleaned out after each use, but can use a good scrub down every now and then for the title lint and dirt that sticks inside even after you scoop out the contens. this will also help your dryer run more efficiently and safely. to clean inside of the dryer use warm soapy water. just a few drops of mild dish soap added to a large mixing bowl of water will do the trick. wet and wring out a cleaning rag to clean the interior of the dryer, the take another rag with just warm water and wipe down the inside to remove any soapy residue.

CONT.. cleaning the outside of the machines: it is a mixture of lint, dust, dirt and whatever else that may have landed on top all mixed together with a little bit of laundry detergent. • use a wash cloth and run it under hot water • take the wash cloth and from the back of the machine wipe to the front of the machine • clean around all knobs getting your rag behind the knobs also. • wipe down the sides of the machine as you did the top of the machine.
  20. 20. CLEANING THE FLOOR After everything else is cleaned sweep or vacuum then mop the floor, concentrating on the dust and lint in between the machines and the wall. once the floor is done, you now have a nice clean laundry room where you won't have to worry about your clean clothes getting dirty right after they come out of the dryer.
  21. 21. CONT.. keeping the laundry room clean: if you don't want to spend a good amount of time cleaning your laundry room, there are title things that you can do to help keep it clean. • put a small garbage can in the laundry room for the used dryer sheets, dryer lint and all of the interesting garbage that you find in pockets and in the machine if you don't find them in the pockets first. this will prevent garbage from piling up on top of the machines and spiling over the sides of the machines, where it will be a lot harder to clean up. • vacuum the floor when on your regular vacuuming day. • clean vents regularly • on the day you wash towels, take a towel and wipe down the washer and dryer then wash the towel with the rest of the load.
