Hi, I'm Jennifer
Hi there! My name is Jennifer. I am a wife, new mother, and professional organizer. I love finding new and creative ways to keep homes organized.
Linen closets have a tendency to become a catch all for a variety of household items, ultimately becoming cluttered and disorganized. For my next blog post, I wanted to share helpful tips and tricks to get your very own insta-worthy linen closet!
This is a great project to tackle now that we are all spending a bit more time indoors!
Towels tend to lose absorbency and become rough after two years of use. When organizing, remove all the older towels first.
Before throwing them away, consider ways to reuse or recycle the towels. You can turn old towels into cleaning rags or consider donating your old towels to a local animal shelter.
If you are interested in recycling your towels and keeping them out of landfills, I suggest Terracycle Fabric and Clothing Zero Waste Box.
Most homes tend to have more towels than they need. I recommend keeping enough towels for your family to use for one full week without laundering.
Towels should be washed after two to three uses to limit bacteria growth.
Consider how many towels each member of your family uses:
A family of four should have around 10-15 towels in their linen closet depending on how often you want to change out your towels. If you have enough room, perhaps have a few extra towels for guests. If you do not have room for extras, consider doing laundry more frequently when family is in town. Not ideal, I know- but it will help you keep your linen closet clutter free.
I decided to channel my love of organizing into an exciting career helping people decrease stress and save time. Hear my story...
