    Default Where do u keep your cleaning supplies

    I keep my mop, broom, dustpan, up vacuum, swiffer, and shampooer in the storage room up stairs. The same is kept in the broom closet except for vacuum which sets were ever I stop using it. I have bathroom cleaners on top of both toliets. Furniture polish and feather duster in every bedroom and Living room. I have basket in each LR with furniture polish, feather duster, swiffer extenders thing, colox wipes, and glass cleaner. A lighter for candles, extra trash bags, and an extra plug in refill. Is this 2 much?

    Pretty much everything is in my large utility closet. Vac is kept in the walk in closet under the stairs.
    I also keep a vac upstairs and cleaning supplies in the upstairs bath. (our upstairs is virtually unused)

    No carpet - no vacuum

    All rooms, mops, etc...have a wall thingy made to hold this type of stuff. They are on one of the walls in the laundry room.

    All other cleaning supplies are stored on a shelf in the laundry room and under the kitchen sink.

    Personally, I don't like things like cleaning supplies visible. Nor do I want them in a place where my pets could get into them. Laundry room is the perfect place for us. It's spacious, 10 ft wide x 18 ft long, plenty of extra room for cleaning stuff.

    My broom and mop hang on the wall in the garage (reachable without actually going into the garage). All my cleaners are in one of those clear plastic pocket-type shoe organizers that hangs on a wall in the laundry room. In each bathroom are a spray bottle of 409 and a few rags under the sink. Sadly, I seem to be the only person who knows how to OPERATE these items.........

I keep glass cleaner and Bar Keeper's Friend under the kitchen sink. I keep the rest of my cleaners and a bucket with my frequently used cleaners under the sink in the laundry room.

    Brooms/Swiffer type things - kitchen has a cupboard in the pantry just for those items.

    Downstairs
    Bathroom - tub/tile cleaner, daily shower spray, tilex, toilet bowl cleaner - on a ledge next to the toilet (hey, its off the floor)

    Mop/broom - against the wall next to the bathroom

    Roomba - lv rm corner - She can come/go freely as scheduled

    Rest of the stuff - stockpiled neatly on shelves in the laundry room which houses the monster huge upright vac.

    Yes we have no pets - excluding DH & dad

    Some in the laundry room, some under the kitchen sink. Vacuum alternates between an upstairs closet and the downstairs crawlspace. Mop and broom are in the garage.

    Wherever I can find space for it. Generally things are kept in the area they will be used, bath cleaners under bathroom sink, laundry stuff in laundry room, etc. Our cupboards are pretty tiny so it has to be spread around.

    The vacuum sits in the hallway because DH tore the hall closet apart 5 years ago and has not put it back yet....

    Mop and broom are in the kitchen corner, since that's pretty much the only tile we have.

    Neely, your laundry room is the size of my living room!
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    We try to put our cleaning materials closest to where they are to be used (ie. kitchen cleaners under the kitchen sink) and put child locks on the doors.

    The garage holds everything. Except for the laundry soap making supplies. The pot and grater and such is in my work shed. I just pull it out as needed.
