Smart Storage Solutions for Natural Home Cleaning Products

In recent years, the popularity of natural home cleaning products has soared due to their eco-friendly nature and gentle yet effective cleaning properties. As you incorporate these products into your cleaning routine, it's crucial to store them properly to ensure their longevity and keep them out of reach from pets and children. Additionally, organising your cleaning supplies can help streamline your cleaning process, making it more efficient and enjoyable. In this article, we will explore user-friendly storage ideas, safety precautions, and organisation tips for your natural home cleaning products.

Safety first: Protecting pets and children

When it comes to storing cleaning products, safety is always your top priority, especially when you have pets or children at home! At Averdant, our natural home cleaning products are child and pet safe as well as non-toxic. But that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be kept out of reach. After all, no one wants their bub to start a bubble bath on the floor with their kitchen cleaner or for their fur baby to mistake your multipurpose cleaner for a fun, new chew toy!

Here are some precautions you can take:

  • Elevated storage: Store your cleaning products out of reach by placing them in high cabinets, shelves, or wall-mounted racks. This way, they will be inaccessible to curious children or pets.
  • Childproof locks: Install childproof locks on cabinets where you store cleaning supplies. These locks add an extra layer of protection and prevent accidental access.
  • Secure storage areas: If you have a dedicated cleaning closet or room, make sure it can be securely locked to prevent messes. 

Organisation and storage ideas

Efficient storage solutions can make your cleaning routine more convenient and make it a lot easier for you to maintain a tidy and organised space.

  • Caddies or totes: Use caddies or totes to gather frequently used cleaning products. You can easily carry them from room to room, saving time and effort. Group similar products together, such as bathroom cleaners, kitchen cleaners, and glass cleaners, for easy access.
  • Hanging organisers: Maximise vertical space by utilising hanging organisers on the inside of cabinet doors or on walls. These organisers are ideal for storing spray bottles, brushes, and microfiber cloths, keeping them within reach and neatly organised.
  • Labelled containers: Transfer your natural cleaning products into clear, labelled containers. Not only does this make it easier to identify each product, but it also adds a cohesive aesthetic to your storage area.
  • Drawer dividers: If you have a designated drawer for cleaning supplies, use dividers to separate items like gloves, sponges, and scrub brushes. This will keep everything in order and prevent them from getting tangled or lost.

 How to spend less time cleaning

 Keeping your home cleaning products and equipment organised can greatly enhance your cleaning routine and save you time. Consider the following tips:

  • Categorise cleaning products: Group your cleaning products according to their purpose, such as glass cleaners, surface disinfectants, or floor cleaners. This will make it easier to locate specific products when needed.
  • Declutter regularly: Regularly assess your cleaning supplies to remove expired or unused products. This will free up space and ensure you have a clutter-free and efficient cleaning area.
  • Create a cleaning schedule: Develop a cleaning schedule and note down the products required for each task. This way, you can quickly gather the necessary supplies and efficiently move through your cleaning routine.
  • Streamline with multi-purpose products: Consider using multi-purpose natural cleaning products like this beautiful-smelling orange blossom and tangerine spray to reduce the number of items you need to store. This simplifies your storage requirements and minimises clutter.
  • Keep cleaning products where they’re used: Make cleaning up quicker by putting cleaning products where they’re needed most in your home, so you can just grab, clean, and go. For example, you can put a linen and room spray in your bathroom or linen cupboard, multipurpose cleaner in your bathroom and kitchen, or hand sanitiser right in your handbag.

 Proper storageand organisation are essential when using natural home cleaning products. By implementing user-friendly storage solutions and adhering to safety guidelines, you can keep your cleaning products accessible yet secure from pets and children. Additionally, an organised cleaning area and schedule will streamline your cleaning routine, making it more efficient and enjoyable. Embrace these tips, and you'll find that maintaining a clean and eco-friendly home becomes a breeze!
