Cleaning supplies can be drippy, stinky, oddly shaped, and bulky. While people have traditionally stored them under the sink, that's not your only option — and just setting cleaning supplies in a cabinet isn't the most clever way to store things either. So, just to shake things up, here are the best ways to store your cleaning supplies that you might not have thought about.
1. In a shoe organizer
Whether you've got a dedicated cleaning closet — like Desiree of The 36th Avenue — or just a free door in your coat closet, a shoe organizer has just the right size pockets to keep all your cleaning supplies within reach.

2. Or a permanent door rack
Similar idea, sturdier shelves: Jen from I Heart Organizing mounted racks to her narrow closet door to keep cleaning supplies accessible and organized.

3. On a tension rod
Make some space under the sink for all your cleaning tools by hooking bottles to a tension rod from the spray triggers. Crystal of Little Bit Funky did it, and look how much more she can fit in there now!
