When properly organized, the linen closet is able to store much more than just sheets and towels. It can also store toiletries, paper products, cleaning products and personal care items.
There are very simple ways to organize the linen closet. To begin, place items that are seldom used or those you want to keep out of children’s reach on the upper shelves. Keep heavy and large items on the floor and sheets and towels at waist level.
Use plastic containers or space-saving bags for comforters and seasonal fabrics to keep moisture and bugs away.
Place pretty baskets on the shelves and fill them with toiletries, cleaning products or whatever you desire.
Towels can be folded in thirds or rolled to maximize space.
Sheets can be folded and placed inside the pillowcase to keep them together. It’s a good idea to have 2 sets for each bed and to purchase different color sheets for each bed. This will make it easier to identify which sheets go on which bed.
When washing your sheets and towels, place the clean ones on top and grab the one on the bottom to use. This will ensure that all the sheets and towels will be used and maintain a fresh smell.
Only keep items in your linen closet that you know you will need and use.
Organizing the linen closet is an easy job that doesn’t require much time and doing so will extend the life of your sheets and towels because they will be properly cared for.
