4 Things To Keep Under the Kitchen Sink

4 Things to Keep Under the Kitchen Sink via Clean Mama

This week’s organizing focus is the KITCHEN SINK. If you haven’t grabbed April’s FREE cleaning and organizing calendar yet, head on over to this post for a little more explanation.

Your challenge this week is to take 15 minutes to tidy up under your kitchen sink. Super simple task – empty it out, wipe it clean, toss or recycle anything that you no longer need or use, and put it back together.

If you feel like the area under your kitchen sink needs a little more love than that, here are 4 musts that I keep under my kitchen sink:

  • Kitchen Cleaning Supplies: Keep your kitchen cleaning supplies, tools, sponges, extra hand and dish soap, etc. under your kitchen sink. Easy access in the kitchen is key. I keep my sink scrub, cleaning recipe supplies, and other miscellaneous items under the sink to keep it handy for mixing up recipes too.
  • Lazy Susan:  I had an extra one and popped it under the sink a year or so ago- total space saving game changer.
  • Containers to Hold Tools:  If you have scrubbers or other little tools, use containers that can ventilate the tools properly in between uses.
  • Hook:  If you use dish cloths, put a hook on the inside of your door to dry damp dishcloths. When they are dry, I put them in a laundry basket for dishcloths.
