Storage.com is an advocate of a cleaner home, whether through helpful tips for tackling clutter or the use of a storage unit.
Everything but the kitchen sink. That’s what you have organized in your home, right? That useful-yet-awkward cabinet under the sink all too easily becomes the hideaway for dishtowels, sponges, detergent, and infinite bottles of cleaning supplies. It can be a finicky spot to get control of, but you’ll have it spic and span in no time with some of these inexpensive organization tips.
Start by pulling everything out. Take stock of what you have, and toss what you don’t use. That cardboard tube of scouring powder in the back that’s been sitting there for 15 years can probably go.
Now, it’s time to make a few small investments that will go a long way. Over-the-door cabinet organizers like this available at Amazon are perfect for sponges, bottles of dishwasher fluid, or boxes of foil and wrap. By maximizing space on the doors, you’ll have more room to work with inside the cabinet itself.
Low cabinet shelves create plenty of extra stacking space for dish detergent, trash bags, and paper towels. Plastic drawers or bins make a great place for storing dishtowels and tossing the dirty ones until laundry day.
Using a lazy susan like this inexpensive model by Rubbermaid gives you easy access to common cleaning supplies. You can also fix a small tension rod across the inside of your cabinet to hang spray bottles and drying towels or washrags.
With any of these storage products, you can go as basic or as fancy as you want, depending on your budget. You’re sure to see improvement no matter which combination of tips you use. So check “kitchen sink” off your list—you’ve now organized it all.
