Have you ever opened up the doors under your kitchen sink and then closed them because you didn’t want see all the bottles or smell the smells that come from within that dark space??? Have you ever gone through some of them and realized you have a cleaning product over 5, 10 or more years old? How often can you even find that one cleaner that you wanted to use in the first place??
Inspired by my friends blog nikkilovesbrad I decided to follow suit and try to clean out under my sink. (Sometimes following other blogs is dangerous to your household as it makes you want to clean and do EVERYTHING!) Here is how under our sink started out….
I went to the dollar store and purchased some little baskets to help organized and sort out all the chemicals. I tried to throw out anything old or anything I knew we weren’t going to use.
I put together a basket for the things used regularly like dishsoap, dishwasher soap etc. A basket for spray cleaners, one for large items like extra city garbage bags, and even bought a little can for brushes.
Once organized it fit back together like this.
Some areas of the house really haven’t needed to be “organized” with little baskets and extra attention, but this under sink area definitely needed it!
What have you cleaned out or organized lately? Have you checked all your cleaners recently and made sure that they were things you will use and haven’t just been sitting around 5 years? What is your favorite cleaner that you will always have on hand??
Have a great weekend!!!
