Household chores can become even more tedious when the right supplies aren't stored together. Taking a few minutes to organize cleaning products and supplies will save time and energy and make every-day life more manageable.
-Keep supplies together for related cleaning tasks (bathroom cleaners together, dusting supplies together, etc.).
-Use plastic carrying caddies with handles for cleaning supplies. They are easy to keep clean and keep any leaks from ruining cupboard or closet space.
-Make sure to keep all cleaning supplies locked and out of reach from children and pets.
-Use pegs for hanging brooms, mops, and dusters.
-Have enough sponges or scouring pads for separate jobs (one for kitchen cleaning, a separate one for the bathtub).
