Lets face it, theres never enough time to do it all and even less time to spend cleaning and organizing! Take back some time while keeping your home in order with these simple cleaning and organizing hacks (AKA shortcuts or clever solutions).
1. Store Smart
Large, flat kitchen tools like cookie sheets and cutting boards can be difficult to store and keep organized. Keep them in order and easily accessible by storing them vertically in a desk file holder.
2. Clever Cleaner
Clean dirty DVDs or video game discs with Windex Electronics Cleaner. Just spray on to clean particle-free cloth and wipe gently.
3. Spray Bottle Space
In most homes, the cabinets under the kitchen sink are awkward spaces, which are hard to utilize, much less keep organized. Get the most out of your space by installing a tension rod to hang your spray bottles.
4. Stain-lifting Citrus
Dont spend time scrubbing to remove stains from your wooden or light-colored cutting board. Just rub half a lemon onto the board, let it sit for 20 minutes and then wash to reveal a cutting board that looks brand new.
5. Double Up
Struggling to fit everything into your closet? Double your hanging space in a moment, by placing a soda tab around the top of each hanger. Then, you can hang another hanger from the tab.
6. Control Car Clutter
Cut down on car clutter by giving everything its own place. Try hanging a shoe organizer on the back of your car seats for easily accessible, organized storage.
7. Pack Like a Pro
Traveling with little ones is hard enough! Make your next trip a bit easier by planning and packing ahead. Pack your childs outfits for each day into individual Ziploc Brand Storage Bags with the Smart Zip Seal. Then, let them pick which outfit/bag they want to wear each day.
8. Handy Hangers
Having trouble finding a place to store your irregular-shaped accessories like purses or scarves? Try using shower curtain hooks to utilize the hanging space in your closet.
9. Shutter Storage
Keep your desk organized by repurposing an old window shutter to hold and sort mail or important papers. This vintage look is not only functional, but will also act as a nice accent for your office area.
