[THE] Door Storage to Simplify Your Cleaning Routine

[THE] Door Storage to Simplify Your Cleaning Routine

*This post is sponsored by Command™ Brand. All opinions are our own.

What’s worse than having to take time out of your precious day to clean your entire house? Having to wade through a damp cave of cleaning supplies before you even get started.

So, why work harder when you can work smarter? It’s time to create a functional storage system that simplifies your cleaning routine and allows you to access your supplies without the fear of a broom falling on your head.

Think beyond your cabinet shelves and take advantage of vertical space to organize up. Utilizing the back of a door is a perfect storage solution that allows you to store more items without taking up additional space, especially when it comes to all the bulky cleaning supplies that are a nightmare to store otherwise. 

In THE office, due to our strict “No Holes in Walls” policy, we created a cleaning supply door, using *only* Command Products. Not only are these extremely easy to apply (which is necessary for people like us), they can be removed and then reapplied without causing damage or leaving behind a sticky residue.

This was a total game-changer—considering we had the sweet, sweet freedom to customize the space to our specific needs.

To maximize vertical space and customize it to *your* cleaning needs, here are the Command Products that we recommend to get the job done:

1. Broom Gripper: No more wedging brooms and mops in weird corners that are impossible to access. To use, simply pull a broom out when you need it and push it back in when you are done. IMPORTANT: Before mounting the Broom Gripper, make sure to measure how much height you need so nothing drags on the ground. 

2. Double Hook: Perfect for hanging your cleaning rags, making them easy to grab-and-go and maintain freshness. 

3. Spray Bottle Hanger:  Keep your spray bottles stored upright and easily accessible so you don’t have to sacrifice an inch of your precious cabinet space.

4. Small Wire Hooks: Perfect for hanging lightweight items, like dusters.

Application tips: 

*Follow all Command Brand package instructions for proper surface cleaning and prep, adhesive strip placement and recommended weights.

*Before applying to the surface, measure the space you need for each cleaning product to allow proper clearance.

Tip 1: Stock Up on Healthy Staples

If you want to start eating healthier, you obviously need to stock your fridge with healthy food. It helps to create a list of core staples to have on hand at all times. This takes the guesswork out of grocery shopping, and you’ll feel more prepared during meal and snack time. 

Tip 2: Edit, Edit, Edit

When it comes to actually organizing your fridge, don’t skip the editing process. Even if you don’t feel like it, start by removing every single item from your fridge until it’s completely empty. We suggest keeping a trash bag nearby and tossing anything expired as you go. And since your fridge shelves are probably due for a deep clean, here’s your chance to actually get in there and wipe off that weird sticky layer! 

Tip 3: Create Zones

Every category should live in a designated zone (location) and preferably, within a contained and visible home (clear product). This allows everything to be accessible, accounted for, and aesthetically pleasing...while also maximizing shelf space.

Tip 4: Label It

Labeling isn’t just the finishing touch, it’s actually the secret sauce of the system. Labels are really just straightforward directions for where items go. They concretely identify the contents that live in each container. It not only helps *you* maintain the system, but it holds your kids, your partner, and anyone else using the space, too. 

*Reminder: Think broad, not specific when labeling your categories. It should be a simple road map that’s flexible enough for the occasional outlier. 

Tip 5: Freeze It

Your freezer is valuable real estate in your fridge set up, so clear out those old popsicles and spilled frozen peas to make room for favorites your family will actually eat. We're looking at you last minute meals.

We love using our Freezer Bins to contain the chaos amongst the frozen pizzas and kids snacks. Organizing this space will take the dread out of opening this often-forgotten area, we promise!
