A few weeks ago I was sitting in my family room working on my computer when I heard this horrible noise. Unfortunately, my brain registered that I had heard this exact sound before…running water. Running water INSIDE your home is never a good thing and in this case that was especially true. As I jumped from the couch fearing the worst – that is exactly what I saw… water flowing towards me throughout my entire kitchen. The source? My laundry room.
For the third time (YES, the THIRD TIME in two years) my washing machine had overflowed, pouring water throughout two rooms.
As I mopped, soaked, and vacuumed up the gallons of water, I decided to use this six hour cleaning expedition as inspiration for re-organizing our entire laundry room.
Naturally, that started with a new washing machine and dryer. (finally!)
