Opening the cabinet under the kitchen sink can be like opening a science lab. A month after decluttering and organizing what’s left, I find bottles tipped over or in the back. One bottle is laying on its side leaking something all over the new liner.
Which is why I had to come up another idea.

Finding solutions that work to solve challenges for tasks I’m not fond of doing, as always a bonus. Since cleaning isn’t high on my list, finding a way to grab what I need when I need it is high on my list.
Last month, anything that didn’t need to be under the sink found a new home. Some found a new home called the trash. When finished, I laid down a new shelf liner. Then preceded to fill only what I felt need to live under the sink.
Back stock found a new home in the pantry. Cleaning solutions I rarely used found the trash. Six cleaning bottles, extra dish soap, dishwasher soap and dishwasher rinse returned. Everything was great!
After a month, I found myself reaching in the back for the Windex. Another time I could find the vinegar bottle behind the box of dishwasher soap box. Then something leaked. Ugh!
Then one day I was cleaning upstairs and had hooked the cleaning bottle in my sweatshirt pocket. It’s a habit of mine. Spray the area, hook in the pocket and hands-free cleaning. Makes cleaning faster.
My Aha moment!
I ordered a tension curtain rod.
Now those bottles hang like in my sweatshirt pocket.
Did you know hydrogen peroxide will lose its effectiveness if exposed to light? That’s why the brown bottle.
A shared on the DIY HelpLetter why I keep the dishwasher rinse booster on the soap box. When I need to remember something, I place it in the way. Now I remember to use it too.
All the time spend decluttering and organizing under the sink will not stick…with this sink organization idea!
Finally, it’s time for a shower. As I open the shower door, what do I see…
a soap bottle tipped over leaking soap down the drain.
