Find Out Where and How To Store Your Cleaning Supplies

By

1. Clean, Cool, Dry

Store your cleaning supplies in an area that is clean and free of debris. Make sure that there aren't any temperature extremes in the area where your cleaning supplies are stored. Another thing to make sure of is that the area is dry.

2. Original Containers

Keep cleaning supplies in their original containers. If you mix your own cleaners, make sure you use new clean bottles and label them to avoid a mixup. Some cleaners can cause a lot of problems when they are mixed, so always follow manufacturers' instructions.

3. Safe Storage

Be sure to keep your cleaning supplies stored in places where your children and/or pets will not be able to get to them. Consider higher storage or locked storage options to protect small children and pets.

4. Cleaning Caddies

Another option for storing cleaning supplies is to create smaller cleaning kits for the different areas of your home. Cleaning caddies can hold nearly all the supplies needed to clean an entire room and be stored right in the room they are needed. The only things you'll have to haul into the room are floor care items.
