4 Tips to Organize Under the Bathroom Sink

4 Tips to Organize Under the Bathroom Sink

This week’s organizing (and cleaning) task is the BATHROOM SINK.  (September’s cleaning and organizing calendar is here).  Take a couple minutes this week to organize your under the bathroom sink this week – if you have more than one bathroom, choose the most-used or most desperate for a little organization.  I have 4 quick tips to organize under the bathroom sink and keep it that way!

4 Tips to Organize Under the Bathroom Sink via Clean Mama

CLEAN: Start by emptying out the space and wiping it clean.  Toss or donate anything that isn’t used regularly.

CONTAIN: Anything that’s left put it in a container.  If you have lots of items stored under your sink, separate and group them together and place them in a container.  I like using open plastic storage containers for easy access to products.  Keeping items contained also ensures that any leaky products won’t ruin your cabinets.

CLEANING CADDY: For me, the most important item under the bathroom sink is a mini cleaning caddy.  Keeping your most-used cleaning sprays and tools at the ready make it easier to spot clean a bathroom or completely clean it while little ones are doing baths or just when you happen to have a couple minutes.  (Go to this post to see what’s in my mini cleaning caddy AND grab a great DIY cleaning recipe.)

GARBAGE LINERS: Just a helpful hint – keep a small roll of garbage can liners (or 4 or 5 extras) in the bottom of your garbage can.  This is not only a time saver, but a mess saver.  Keeping the garbage cans lined keeps the mess in the bag – no more gum stuck to the bottom and sides of garbage cans.  (Or maybe that only happens at my house?)  It’s also helpful when colds and flu are going around to keep tissues a little easier to clean up.

    I really like the caddy you have for your hair dryer, curling irons, etc. Where is it from?

  3. Thank you for this! And thank you for blogging about organization and cleaning in a way that doesn’t make me feel more manic than I already do. 😉 I wrote a blog post on my VERY new blog a couple weeks ago about my mission to have a cleaner home and mentioned your site. Well done! Keep it up, we like you. 😉

  4. I have so much stuff under my bathroom sink!!
    I have a lot of products opened…no room for cleaning supplies.

  5. I bought several boot trays at Dollar Tree to put at the bottom of the bathroom and kitchen sink cabinets. They catch any spills or drips, and keep the bottom of the cabinet from getting stained or wet. Once that wood gets wet,it can deteriorate and you have to replace it. This happened at a rent house we own,and we had to get a carpenter to replace that bottom piece because it was so rotted from spills and a dripping pipe longtime renters did not tell us about.,and we found later.After the wood was replaced,I coated the new wood with a clear sealer to protect it,and put in boot tray.
