Reorganize Your Utility Closet
Spotless Made Simple: Expert Tips
- Pare down supplies and products, tossing near-empty bottles and discarding duplicates.
- "The closet should be for cleaning and household supplies only, not a catchall for canned goods or other miscellaneous items," says organizing expert Linda Rothschild, founder of Cross It Off Your List.
- "First figure out where to put the vacuum, because it's the biggest tool," suggests Barbara Reich, author of Secrets of an Organized Mom.
- "If you're starting from scratch, have an electrical outlet installed in the closet," recommends Rothschild. Handheld vacuums and other appliances can then be recharged hidden from view.
"Invest in matching bins, containers or stackable clear drawers, then label them for an uncluttered look," says Reich.
