the bucket.


This is "the bucket."  The cleaning bucket.

Basically it contains ALL of the cleaning products (including gloves and sponges) needed to clean my house.  All I have to do is tote it from room to room as I clean.  Maybe this idea was obvious to some of you but it hit me like a ton of bricks one morning while I was watching Martha Stewart.  It has been my lifesaver and has forever changed how I feel about cleaning.

I had a fun chat with my college roomie this week about cleaning supplies (no really, I love to talk about cleaning) and thought I would post about my bucket.

It contains:

  • Pledge
  • Toilet cleaner
  • Sponges
  • A toothbrush
  • Gloves
  • Paper Towels
  • Comet
  • Windex
  • All purpose cleaner with bleach
  • A rag
  • Soft scrub
  • Room spray
  • Resolve carpet cleaner
So just in case you haven't heard of this (and especially if your home has stairs) you need to give the bucket a try!

Oh, and I also think the bucket is great when you have little kids because all of my cleaning supplies (except the specialty stuff) are in this on a higher up shelf in the hall closet or linen closet.  No chemicals under sinks where little hands can reach them.  My under sink area is for towels only and I never have to worry about Carson getting into it!

I have a bucket too - isn't it great?!?! Although I like your bucket b/c it looks like it holds more stuff than mine...
And I love your blog! It's always such a treat to read :)
