Organizational Tips for Cleaning Efficiently

Organizational Tips for Cleaning Efficiently
If you can't find your supplies or don't know what you have on hand, it will be hard to clean efficiently. The following are some tips and guidelines to being more organized so you can clean more efficiently.

Tip #1:
Keep a list of the cleaning supplies you have on hand. If you prefer to make your own - keep a separate list with the recipes and what you have on hand to be able to make your cleaning recipes. This can ultimately save you time and money.

Tip #2:
Place a shower curtain rod in your bathroom/kitchen under sink cupboards. This will give you room to "hang" your cleaning bottles up and keep them off the floor of your cupboard. You can also use tension rods in your kitchen cupboards to make "dividers" for platters, plates, pans, lids, etc.

Tip #3:
Use a magnetic strip in your kitchen for knives and in the bathroom for bobby pins, tweezers, nail clippers, etc.

Tip #4:
Store your boxes (like foil, saran wrap, wax paper, parchment paper, baggies, etc.) in magazine holders. Then store in your cupboard or drawer.

Tip #5:
Use a hanging magazine rack to store your lids to pots and pans. (Genius!)

Tip #6:
In your fridge, use wire shelves and/or lazy susans. Use bins to store like items - use various sizes: large ones can hold fruits, smaller ones can group "sandwich making" items together or "sauce making" etc.

Tip #7:
In your closets: hang all of your hangers backwards. As you wear clothes hang them in correctly. At the end of the season (or year) whatever hangers are still hanging backwards you know you can donate that item of clothing because you know you haven't worn it.

Tip #8:
Store your boots with pants hangers in your closet. You can also make "shoe storage" for your walls using crown molding.

Tip #9:
Store your matching sheet sets inside the matching pillowcases. Stores so flat and looks pretty sitting on the shelf.

Tip #10:
Put a shelf over your bathroom door for things that you don't need regular access to.

Whatever organizational needs you are looking for - I hope you found something here to help you.

Make it a great one!
