Purge Day 5:  Cleaners

Task:  Pull out all of your cleaners, from cabinets & closets.  Purge all empty bottles, combine 1/2 empty bottles of the same cleaner into one, and take inventory of what’s left.  Donate any cleaners you no longer use or want (to a neighbor or friend).

Organizing Tip:  Create a cleaning caddy for each level of your home (using a shower caddy).  Make sure to include all types of cleaners.  Visit my post here to learn how to put together the perfect cleaning caddy.  You can also see my newly organized laundry room post here & the video here.

If you’re new to the purge, you can revisit all of the posts HERE.  I’ll see you tomorrow, for more purging.

    Amazing! I’ve looked at the jumbled mess of supplies under my sink for weeks and shamefully closed the door and waited for a better day. This was the day and it took about fifteen minutes. There were six containers of wood floor cleaner. Most interesting find was a little jar of silver wipes. I recently bought the same product and was pleased with “the find”. Thank you!!!

    This is wonderful! Just this morning, I have cleaned out all my cleaning supplies & a “broom” closet in my kitchen!!! It’s get to have you to motivate me!! Thank you so much…..:)

    I’ve been wanting to do this for a while but wasn’t sure how. Do you have a list with examples of what green products to use in place of what toxic products? I have someone clean my hard floors and bathrooms twice a month, they’re used to specific products. Tx.

    I’m a little bit behind so only did this one today. It was really beneficial as I found things I didn’t know I had. 2 weeks ago I bought one of those single use dishwasher cleaners, found 2 of them under the sink today 😉
