Happy Monday ladies! I hope you all had a great weekend and your Monday is starting off on the right foot. As you know, I have been very busy doing a few upgrades at my home and with that has come a lot of “shedding” of old stuff and organizing things I have. It has been a BIG job no doubt, but each day I feel so much better about making the decision to do this. Somehow, the house is feeling so much “homier”, its hard to explain, but I am so happy with the progress so far.
I have been using a lot of cleaning supplies and tools on a daily basis lately, mostly from Grove Collaborative, and what I’ve found out is that I am not as organized as I thought I was. Organizing my supplies so I can easily access what I need and see what I have is helpful and it makes cleaning a little more fun. I’m sharing some great storage solutions and ideas that I have implemented lately, that has helped me tremendously!
My first step cleaning and organizing my closet was to figure out what I needed and what I used the most. Basically making everything accessible for me for when I needed it. For example, I have to use a Swiffer Duster in my house daily! Dust around here seems to fall right in front of your eyes! I have black marble in front of my fireplace and I cannot handle seeing the dust on it. I don’t remember dust accumulating so much when I was younger!
Other things that I only use weekly I may not need them to be upfront and ready. Figure out what you need and what works best for you. Here are some things I used to help my closets look more tidy and organized.
Plastic Lazy Susan Turntables are great for storing some of your DIY products that you may use for cleaning. (I’m trying to go “green” and so far I am very happy with the change!). I like the Lazy Susan’s because things are right there at a quick turn of the table. The quicker the better, right? No one likes cleaning…well, it’s not my favorite past time.
These large wire baskets could have been used for storing so many different things – I love the size and shape of them and I especially like the handles. Also, these baskets are so popular right now with the Farmhouse theme. Aren
Then wire baskets are perfect for storing floor care products – I would keep them on a higher shelf so this handled basket makes it easier access the products. Any basket that has handles makes it so much easier to maneuver around when you need to!
Also, putting one on a lower shelf to store cloths that need to be cleaned on laundry day makes thing easier too!. Keeping them here allows them to continue drying (I never put them in wet, just barely damp or already dry) and it keeps them off the floor and lets them air out some.
These small wire storage baskets are perfect for containing the bulk of the cleaning supplies, especially your cleaning towels!
I love how they look on the shelves – they’re the perfect size for my cleaning cloths. You can divide up microfiber cloths, hand towels for cleaning, and any other type towels that are necessary for daily or weekly cleaning.
You can also use them for spray cleaners and empty glass bottles and sprayers. You can also see one above in the image with the floor cleaners – my Swiffer floor pads would be perfect in these too.
Putting furniture care supplies or supplies for a specific room or area are perfect in th small caddy. It’s small but can contain quite a few products.
A couple of empty large caddies are great when you need to load up a couple supplies to do some seasonal or deep cleaning.
I hope you found an idea or two for your own cleaning supply storage! Get creative and use what you have – it might be a cupboard, under the sink, a corner in the bonus room – with the right functional products, you can add a little more function and start the declutter process.
