How to Organize Your Cleaning Products

Pick a Storage Location
Where are you going to store all your cleaning products and supplies? Some people prefer to put things under the sink in the kitchen. It is a very convenient place to store all the cleaning products, and possibly some supplies (like dusters and rags). Others prefer to turn a closet into a storage space for cleaning products. Put in some shelves to hold cleaning products. Your brooms, mops, and vacuum can easily be stored in the closet.

Gather Some Bins
Small, easy to carry, plastic bins are great for sorting cleaning supplies. Label one bin “bathroom”. This is where to put toilet cleaner, bathroom cleaners, glass cleaners that you use on your shower doors or mirror, and other products that are only used in your bathroom.

Label another bin “kitchen”. This bin should hold oven cleaner, counter cleaner, sink cleaner, and “all purpose cleaners”. Toss in the rubber gloves that you use when you wash dishes. Collect up the detergents you use in your dishwasher. Put in a bottle of drain cleaner.

Another bin should be labeled “laundry”. This bin should hold laundry detergent, dryer sheets, stain removers, and anything else you typically use when you are doing the wash. Once you organize the bins, you can easily grab everything you need to clean a room in one trip.

Collect the Mops
There is a simple way to prevent your mops, brooms, Swiffer mops, and other similar cleaning supplies from cluttering up your storage space. All you need is a large bucket. Turn your mop upside down, and put it into the bucket. Do the same with your with your mops. Skinny steam mops might fit as well. This will free up so much space in your cleaning supply storage closet.

Another option is to mount a broom holder on a wall. You can stick a number of brooms and mops into it. Attach it to the wall in your cleaning supplies storage closet. Or, you could put it in a garage, laundry room, or wherever works for you.

Make a Note
Are you running low on a particular cleaning product? Often, we notice this as we are using it to clean something. Take a second and make a note about it. Go look for a coupon for that product. This will help you save money on your next purchase. It will also prevent you from buying duplicate products because you forgot which ones you needed.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
