Try to secure loose items like brooms, rags, and bottles by tossing them in bins, buckets, or hanging them up on racks, hooks or similar.

Step 3: Stock Up
Once you’ve cleared out the clutter, replenish your supply of depleted cleaning products. is your source for finding the Cleaning Supplies You need to restore your cleaning space to where it should be – just in time for Spring Cleaning.

    Haha, I never really thought about it, but I think it’s pretty funny that my cleaning supplies are always so unorganized.

    I tend to think back to times where i have been unable to find a certain item in the house because i have thrown them anywhere the previous time i was using it. Very frustrating!
    Now i think on that basis whenever i am looking to store an item away. And think, where would i be able to find it next time i come to use it?
    Follow this procedure and your certain to stay clutter free!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Do you recommend having more than one storage space for cleaning products? Currently I have the main stuff stored under the sink in arranged bins, and toilet cleaner in either bathroom, along with bathtub cleaner for the tub in one bath. Do you think that’s enough?

    I organize my cleaning supplies with buckets — one bucket for each area of the house. This way, they are organized (I hate the idea of mistakenly using the bathroom sponge for cleaning my kitchen tiles. Yuck!) and I can just dump them all in after a strenuous day of scrubbing and washing.

    The one thing I’ve noticed is that you have to also clean out the area that holds your cleaning supplies, too, from time to time. Last year I thought nothing of it, and when I went to move and go through the products, I found a nice little patch of mold growing from one of my bottles leaking. Now that’s an ICK!

    Thanks for the additional cleaning tip!

    Make sure that if you are using aftermarket spray bottle that us use the correct MSDS labeling protocols. When trying to organize all of my Eco Friendly solutions i find it much easier if they are labeled correctly. Another tip I have for organizing cleaning supplies is to consolidate. Many products have many uses, I find many people have way to many when only a few can do the whole job!

    Really thanks a lot for sharing these useful cleaning tips with us.

    Nice tips. I just finished my spring cleaning (seems like it took forever!) and saw your tips. I think this can be done year-round since cleaning supplies are in use almost everyday.

    Thanks for the tips! My mom is such a neat freak and actually bought me stuff for the bathroom so I can organize everything. She bought me a rack for my towels, a toilet paper storage for spare rolls, a shower rack for my soap and hair products, and other things. I can’t complain. She even got them so match my color scheme!

    Some good tips here on getting cleaning supplies organised. I will follow your advice in my carpet cleaning business in Derby.

    I just went to the Container Store to get my bathroom organized. Thanks for the tips and I’ll apply these to the work!

    I always combine two of the same products into one bottle, but my wife always gets mad. I will have to show her this article. Thanks.

  18. Molly - July 25th, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    Why would she get mad? I always welcome my boyfriend’s contributions to household cleaning.
