We used to do insane amounts of laundry every single day. Both my husband and I felt extremely drained by our laundry burden. After putting our heads together, we determined that towels were the bulk of our laundry mess. We used to have a very nice towel closet in our bathroom that was readily overstocked with towels.

I packed up our entire towel closet with the exception of one towel for each of us and stored them away in our guest bed drawers. I had our names monogrammed on our remaining towels so we each received just one. I installed hooks in each bedroom on the backs of doors and in closets. Everyone in our home is in charge of their own towel now. If a towel ends up on the floor, I know who is responsible. This hack cut our laundry burden in half and was a complete life savor for our family. No more laundry madness! We wash our towels regularly of course! I love the towels at IKEA because they have loops for hooks already on them! Good Luck!
