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

Instructions:

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!

  1. I feel ya! If the laundry room is nicer, then it makes EVERYTHING better. I love the easy project you made to spruce up the containers – I can do it on so many different objects! Thanks.

  2. Very cool i have most of the items already just needed this to motivate me! What is on tje clothes pins?

  3. Yes they are!! (My guess was they had some kind of homemade softner. on them and you threw them in the dryer with your clothes LOL)

  4. The etched jars are so cute! And thanks for the tips, I really want to apply them to my own laundry routine now.

  5. I am a huge fan of etched glass. A few years back, I etched names in wine glasses and gave our family members each a glass with a bottle of wine (or a beer glass and a fancy six-pack for the beer drinkers). To this day, I have family asking me if I can make them glasses to give as gifts. Everyone loves them!

    Sean and I are thinking about remodeling our laundry room, and seeing this post inspired me to get our ideas down on paper! I cannot wait to get rid of the messy detergent bottles in favor of these sleek (and well-labeled!) jars!

    Thanks for sharing!
