How To Be Organized: Cleaning Your Sink

Keep all your sink accessories neat with a sink organizer that holds dish soap, scrubbers, and sponge in one contained unit. If you are short on counter space, ditch the scrubbers and outfit your sink with a stainless steel suction-cupped sponge holder to keep sponges off the counter. Sponges used for deeper cleaning are best stored under the sink. Swap homely plastic dish soap bottles for a stainless steel or glass soap dispenser. One trick is to use one liquid soap that multitasks as a both a dish and hand soap. One variety is Biokleen, which not only cleans but is also so gentle on the skin it can double as a bubble bath or pet shampoo.
