Sometimes you need to clean your cleaning supplies
I grew up in a home where the washer and dryer lived in a bathroom, which was cleaned weekly (if my sisters and I were reminded sufficently). I never realized how messy a laundry room can get!
I gave this room a good scrubbing a month or two after we moved in, and last week it needed another. Lint gets everywhere and manages to stick a bit. The shelf gets cluttered. The top of the washer and dryer get piled up with stuff.
I also covered the top of my washer and dryer with grippy drawer liner stuff because my mom recommended it. I like it! It will keep the tops from getting scratched up and it adds a little punch of color to this drab little room.
