Save Time : Put Together a Mini Cleaning Caddy for the Bathroom + Recipe for DIY Peppermint Glass + Mirror Cleaner
Yesterday I shared 4 tips to organize under the bathroom sink – today I’m going to show you a couple essentials that I keep in the cleaning caddy under the bathroom sink. I find it really helpful to keep a mini cleaning caddy in our bathrooms, I find that having a couple quick cleaning supplies at the ready for any little mess or just routine cleaning is a real time saver. If I’m supervising bath or shower time I take a couple minutes to spray down counters and toilets to take advantage of a couple minutes of down time. (Please consider the ages of your children if using this advice – never leave children unattended in a bath or shower.)
Think about what supplies you use most or every time you clean the bathroom and put them together in a small caddy or container. (I keep toilet cleaning supplies and shower cleaning supplies in separate containers.) I always need/use a disinfecting cleaner, a glass and mirror cleaner, a scrub, microfiber cloths, and a magic eraser.
