I want a laundry sink. I know that seems like a weird want, but I do. A laundry sink would be SO handy! I mean think about it, how many times do you need to rinse something before you put it in the wash? You know - the caked in mud and stuff like that. Putting it under running water before you put it in the wash means all that extra dirt isn’t going to make a mess of your washer. Have you ever had to wipe out your washer after you wash something extra dirty? Having a laundry sink would make that HISTORY!
Okay, so I am not really without a laundry sink. My laundry room is right next to a bathroom and so I have the bathroom sink I can use – or the tub if I really need too. So, really I am fine. But I look at all these beautiful laundry rooms with big laundry sinks and cute laundry room décor and I start wishing.
In all these beautiful laundry rooms that have a laundry sink I have noticed that there is a variety of sinks that people choose. For some reason I always thought that for a laundry room you wanted more of a laundry tub. You know a big deep sink. Well, if that is what you want then by all means, get a nice deep laundry sink. Think of all the things you can do with a large laundry sink. You can soak big items like sheets or blankets if you want. You can use it to wash big pots and pans or even give the dog a bath. Really, the sink in your laundry room doesn’t have to be reserved for just laundry tasks. It can be a great multipurpose utility sink!
If you don’t have the room for a large laundry sink, then you can always put in something smaller. Many people choose to put in a smaller version of the kitchen sink – but with a single bowl, not double. You can still soak and pretreat clothes in a sink this size.
Maintaining Your Laundry Sink
If you have a sink in your laundry room and you use it a lot, you will want to make sure you maintain it. There really isn’t much to maintaining a sink, but a laundry sink has a good chance of getting a clog in the drain if you use it to rinse dirty clothes much. So be prepared. If possible, run a snake down the drain regularly to make sure that the pipe stays clear. If you wait until there is a clog it is harder work, so keeping it clear is best. You want your sink to drain because otherwise you might have a big mess!
Yes, I want a laundry sink. Maybe someday I will have a beautiful laundry room with a nice sink to rinse clothes and bathe the dog. Until then, I will enjoy the fact that I still have access to a small sink in the bathroom. I guess I really do have a laundry sink.
