Having trouble with cleaning or organizing lately? Did you just move or are you just finally getting around to reorganizing your home for the new season? Whichever your trouble, these tools may help you. Check out Sweeps’s list of cleaning and organizing tools that’ll help you keep your home looking squeaky clean and super spacious.
1. Mounted pegboard, price varies depending on size
Mounted pegboards have all kinds of uses. You can hang and organize tools, stow away your bicycle, and even put one in your office to organize folders, pencils, and other supplies. Some pegboard kits come with hooks, shelves, and bins, allowing for easier and more creative organization.
2. Granite/marble cleaner, $3.00+
Not all cleaners are created equal. Basically, some all-purpose cleaners aren’t safe to use on your granite or marble countertops. Be sure you snag an inexpensive granite cleaner from your local store to keep your counters clean and shiny!
3. Three-bin laundry sorter (colors, whites, delicates), $30.00+
Separate your clothes into colors, whites, and delicates as you collect them. Or keep it in the laundry room and have the whole family dump their clothes in the respective bin if they want their clothes washed. This way, you won’t have to sort hastily before you throw those clothes in the washer! Plus, many three-bin laundry sorters have a cool vintage-mod feel, like the one above.
4. Label maker, $20.00+
Label makers are a tried-and-true organizing favorite. Nowadays, they’re pretty inexpensive and still very useful. Label boxes for moving and storage, spice containers, light switches, and more. Never search for a needle in a haystack again!
5. Swiffer Sweeper, $12.99
This thing is a life-saver. A two-in-one broom and mop, this slender Swiffer product is easy to store and even easier to use. Just switch out the dry or wet cloth to suit your cleaning needs! If you don’t have one of these, you need to get one ASAP.
