Out of sight, out of mind. But, according to cleaning pros, the area under the sink also needs some tidying up if you want to make your life easier and more organized.

So if you have some free time this afternoon or maybe on the weekend, check the situation under the sink. Toss out empty bottles, unused cleaning tools, and replace them with these things you should keep under the sink.

Things You Should Keep Under the Sink

Things You Should Keep Under the Sink

  • Disinfectant Wipes: A disinfectant wipe is pretty handy whenever you need to quickly clean spills or wipe off dust. It’s an ideal cleaning item to disinfect high-touch areas, such as sink faucets, fridge handles, pantry handles, trash can lid, oven handles, and microwave. Wipe these areas at least once a day to keep germs to a minimum, and to avoid getting sick during this pandemic.
  • Glass Cleaner: One of the things you should keep under the sink is a glass cleaner. Trust us, it’s really convenient to keep a glass cleaning solution under your kitchen sink or bathroom sink. It’ll save you so much time and energy from running to another floor or room.
  • Magic Eraser: Another item that must be stored under the sink is a Magic Eraser. It’s handy in times of removing stubborn stains.
  • Rubber Gloves: Of course, it’s a no-brainer that rubber gloves are one of the things you should keep under the sink. While we all want to have a spic and span home, it’s also important to keep your hands protected from harsh chemicals and to limit the spread of germs.
  • Scrub Brush: Keep cleaning brushes or scrub brushes under the sink, especially in the bathroom or laundry area. Just don’t forget to label each brush, or separate them from each other for hygienic purposes.
  • White Vinegar: Yes, a bottle of white vinegar is one of the things you should keep under the sink. If you’re not a fan of white vinegar as a cleaning agent, you can replace it with a bottle of lemon juice. There are plenty of ways to use white vinegar for cleaning, from washing the window to disinfecting your coffee maker.
