I’ve always thought that all rooms in the house should be beautiful and well organized.  This includes rooms like the laundry room. Being a busy work from home mom, it’s important to me to love my home because I’m here so much! Today I wanted to share a tutorial on how to make a pretty etched glass laundry detergent container as well as 3 tips to help save you time in the laundry room. 

Here is what you’ll need to make your laundry detergent container:

  • Glass container with a lid
  • Glass etching cream
  • Adhesive stencils
  • Paint Brush
  • Tide Liquid HE


Step One: Make sure your glass container is clean and dry.  Apply the adhesive stencil to the glass.

Step Two: Using a paint brush, generously apply the glass etching cream and leave it on for 5-10 minutes.

Step Three: Rinse the cream off with water and remove the stencil.  Fill your container with Tide Liquid HE.

Although laundry is a chore, added touches like a pretty etched glass container or a well-organized laundry room makes it seem a little less like a boring routine.  Here are 3 tips that I use to save time in the laundry room and make this task a little less mundane.

Tip #1: Sort as you go. Sorting is my least favorite thing to do when it comes doing laundry.  I use a hamper that has three compartments.  I separate my laundry by lights, darks, and delicates.  It makes it easy to just grab each bag to throw in the washer without having to sort it first.

Tip #2: Separate small items.  I use a mesh bag for all small undergarments.  Also, sock clips come in handy so that you don’t lose pairs.  You can keep a container of clips near your washer for easy access.

Tip #3: Organize your laundry space.  Have your Tide Liquid HE, dryer sheets, and mini trash can within arms-reach.  That way, you can quickly add your detergent, throw in a dryer sheet, or clean out the lint trap with ease.

Hopefully this quick etched glass craft and my three laundry tips will help make your laundry time fast and fun!
