Want to clean like the pros? One of our biggest tips to simplify cleaning is to set up a proper cleaning caddy with all the tools and materials you need to get the job done.

What’s the benefit?
- Always know where all your supplies are. Make sure to place all your supplies back in your caddy as you clean and replace items once empty, this way you always know you have everything you need to get the job done.
- Time Saving Convenience! You don’t need to spend a bunch of time running around trying to find everything you need before you can actually start cleaning.
- With a caddy, you can easily transport all your supplies from room to room without having to run back and forth to find what you need. You will have everything at the tip of your fingers at all time.
- Easier to keep the kids out of the chemicals. Having all your cleaning products in one location you can have more confidence your children won’t accidentally find their way into that of disinfectant you left in a forgotten cabinet.
