Low on space in your laundry area? Not enough room for a conveniently-placed trash can? You can easily improvise one with this simple hack. This works well if you have side-by-side units, but can also be adjusted for units that are stacked.




  • Plastic bag
  • Two magnets (I just used freebie ones I have picked up in the past and they worked perfectly)


1. Place the plastic bag between the washer and dryer.


2. Use one magnet to secure the bag in place. If you have stacked units, you can just secure the bag on one side of the unit and call it a day. 


3. Secure the other side using the second magnet.


4. Conveniently throw away dryer sheets and lint as you’re doing laundry.
