Really. I just don’t have enough hours in my day as it is. I’m stumbling around the internet trying to find some cute little laundry note cards…
And then I found Etsy.
Besides Twitter, it might be my biggest computer time sucker. Have you seen what cute things are there? You could look for days at anything your heart desires.
And of course mine desires some little laundry items.
Please indulge me and let me show a few of the fabulous Etsy laundry items I found while clicking around.
(I’ll preface these links with saying this is not a sponsored post of any kind. I just think these are all marvelous laundry ideas. And I love all things handmade, so I thought I’d showcase a few great finds.)
Do you remember my laundry bulletin board? It’s supposed to be a reminder that I wash clothes for my favorite people when I’m feeling… well, not so eager. Their pictures and sweet little homemade cards would look even more beautiful displayed on this:
I think this is just a gorgeous display board. And it’s magnetic! Love that.
It is the Michael Miller Dandy Damask Large Fabric Covered Magnet Board from Steel Dreaming Designs. They have boards come in all shapes and sizes and in beautiful prints.
Then I found this vintage looking French ‘Laundry’ sign. I just adore it. I dream of the day I have a luxurious laundry room with tons of windows and the perfect spot to hang something like this:
It is the French Laundry Sign with Fleur de Lis by The Back Porch Shoppe. And the owner’s opening line on her profile is “Hey Y’all!” She wins my vote already for best hospitality.
I honestly thought I had this brilliant idea with my kitchen laundry hamper. This Kitchen Wet Bag from Mama Made is so much better than what I came up with. I love this concept:
And it’s lined with PUL – fabulous idea. It’s designed to hang on your stove handle and hold all of your dirty dishtowels for the day.
And while we’re talking about Mama Made, this nifty little item doesn’t have anything to do with laundry. But I must add it because it is such a smart idea:
A Reusable Sandwich Bag. Ingenious idea for the little people in your life.
My search was originally for some cute little laundry note cards. And while I didn’t exactly find what I was looking for, I did stumble upon these:
These are both equally just precious. Makes me want to kiss those sweet cheeks of my baby girl.
The top card is from Sweet Bella Cards and the bottom can be purchased at Gracie Girl Notes.

I have a couple kitchen wet bags and I do like them. I have a couple complaints about them though. 1) To get one large enough to handle my loads between washings (2-3 days), it ends up so heavy that it pulls the door down. LOL I do have a couple smaller ones but that adds to the initial expense. And 2) the inside items start to REALLY smell after more than a day(ish) in a closed environment. The smell doesn’t usually radiate from the bag (though sometimes on day 3 it will) but I usually end up having to soak the cloths in my wash routine because of it.
I really think I’m going to switch to your little hamper idea.
Hmmm… I’m fairly certain it is because the towels are in a non-breathable environment for 2-3 days that causes the smell. PUL is great because it is waterproof. And bad for the same reason in this case. 🙂
I would say they could probably only stay in this cute little bag for a day or so before they soured or mildewed.
If you try the laundry hamper under the sink, let me know if you like it!
I LOVE the idea of the reusable snack bags! Fabulous! I have 2 shops on Etsy, one for art and one for supplies (collagecontessa.etsy.com and collagecuriosities.etsy.com). My favorite shops to frequent are:

Oh I’m so glad you posted a few links! Thanks so much! Can’t wait to take a peek at them.
I’m always on the lookout for a few new great etsy spots. 🙂
Oh yes, Etsy. Where does the time go when I’m on Etsy?
My wife has some of the reusable lunch bags and likes them. But it’s a good idea to check what type of liner is inside; some are not as safe as others for food (i.e., include BPA, phthalates, etc.)
True-thanks for mentioning about the liner.
