    Default Purge Your Cleaning Supplies

    Okay ladies (and gents),

    Today I'd like you to collect all of your cleaning supplies, wherever you may hide them, and clear out the junk. Do you use all of your supplies regularly? Are there some that you bought, yet never use? Do you have bottles that are almost completely empty, but you can't quite get that last bit out?

    Then, I want you to reorganize what's left after tossing the junk. Put bathroom cleaners in the bathroom. Kitchen cleansers in the kitchen. Doesn't make sense to store cleaning supplies in an area where they won't be used!

    Don't forget to check the labels of the products you are getting rid of for safe disposal techniques!

    Not a large project, but definitely one that will save you time down the road when searching for the cleaning product you need!

    this is a great post!
    Thanks Amy!

    I actually do this regularly!

    I never buy bleach, rarely other harsh chemicals (unless I canNOT get out something).

    I actually use environmentally save products and natural things for cleaning.

    vinegars, rubbing alcohol, witch hazel, peroxide, lemon juice, etc.

    These actually do a better job than other chemicals I've found for what I clean regularly.

    Now, sadly I still use dish washer detergent cuz I havent found another way to do this. (ideas???)

    And for those super hard (think dirty grout) I will use BAM... but it's at the dollar store. And sometimes Comet (for toilets) if I'm feeling lazy.

    Otherwise, I rarely use chemicals for cleaning. And I use them up so fast there's no need for tossing any away (unless it gets tucked FAR back into the closet!) LOL

    I've been on a "use it up" mission for a few years. I'm down to only a few extras....it feels good to use up the old stuff (or toss it if it's REALLY old!)
