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.
