Use a dry erase marker to let everyone know which clothes in the washer do not go in the dryer… Genius!

Hanging Clothes Laundry Shelf


Laundry shelf does double duty Sometimes you just need another place to hang clothes, like on the shelf over your washer and dryer. Turn the edge of that shelf into a hanger rack by pre-drilling some 3/4-in. plastic pipe and screwing it to the edge of the shelf. Check it out HERE

Chicken Wire Laundry Basket


There are no instructions supplied here. So let’s make some up!

You’ll need:

  • Circle of wood
  • Wire
  • 4 caster rollers, and appropriate washers and screws
  • fabric
  • rope
  • tools and sewing equipment


Use wire cutters to cut off every other horizontal section to make tabs as in photo. Fold over and wrap your wire around wooden circle as in photo. I would overlap the wire up the side a bit for strength. You could use the small cut-offs to secure the sides (just make sure they wont grab at the fabric)


Cut a circle of thick/strong fabric same size as wood circle. Cut another the same size and length of wire sides – but taller enough to fold over for the rope drawstring. Sew pieces together and fish the rope through. voila!
