Do you hate laundry? Does it stress you out? Do you avoid that little o’l room like the plague? I am 110% guilty of that and I have learned that no matter how much I avoid it, it never goes away. One thing that I have learned over the years is that if the laundry room is tidy, organized, everything is in working order and pretty, I seem to avoid it less. Today I am back sharing How to love and maintain your laundry room and DIY easy-to-follow repair guides and maintenance tips from Sears Parts Direct. I know, it sounds a little far fetched but for anyone who has had a broken washing machine, you know the pain that ensues heading to a laundry mat or a family members house to do several loads of laundry. It’s NOT fun!
Life is so busy and if you have been following along for a while, you know that we partnered with Sears Parts Direct last year to share DIY guides on how to keep your dishwasher and snowblower in tip top shape as well as replacing your HVAC air filters on a regular basis. These items are just like your car, if you don’t take care of them, you will be sorry when they don’t work. I don’t know about you but we can’t live without our snowblower, dishwasher or heat! -ha.
How To Love and Maintain Your Laundry Room – Organization
As many of you know, I have despised laundry my entire life (I am always complaining about it) so much that we ripped apart our laundry closet a couple years ago and created a pretty, functional and organized laundry closet in hopes to motivate the laundry task. I am happy to admit, I am better about keeping up as the space is so much nicer and organized but it still gets backed up on occasion. -ha
Even if you have a tiny bit of DIY in your body, it doesn’t hurt to checkout the how to video guides on the Sears Parts Direct website. You may find that a tiny little fix is all you needed and it can be up and running in no time. Now don’t get me wrong, sometimes you will need to call a repair person and Sears has you covered on that as well. Not only do they sell many of the parts you may need for a repair, they also have trained technicians who can help you as well.
How To Love and Maintain Your Laundry Room – Clean That Washer & Dryer!
One of my biggest complaints about our front load washer is the smell and grime that can build up in the rubber seal on the door. Did you know that mold can grow in there? I knew it can get gross but never did I think mold could grow. Sears has a great article on How to Get Rid of Mold in a Front Loader as well as How to Keep your Washer Odor Free . A quick little tool that I found on the Sears Parts Direct site was a lint brush cleaner. I usually stuff my vacuum attachment (the plastic piece in the vent area) and it always gets stuck. I am afraid one of these days it will get stuck! I never knew there were handy little brush cleaners just for your dryer vent! Did you? I just ordered one. -ha.
How To Love and Maintain Your Laundry Room – DIY Washer & Dryer Repair
Check out these two links for DIY Washer Repair and DIY Dryer Repair . There are so many things that can save you money if you do it yourself. I mean, I don’t ever plan on taking apart any of our appliances (that’s for the professionals) but if there is a quick fix (especially when it comes to resetting an error code), I am all for doing it myself. Be sure to head to the Sears Parts Direct site to get more information regarding all things appliances.
