Last year a friend gave me one of these little scrubbies....and now I have many. I found they work great for scrubbing pots and pans...cleaning counters and ceramic cook tops...glass and tile...and anything else around the kitchen. Fresh potatoes and carrots just need a quick scrub with this little pad...and then they are ready to cook. I throw them in the dishwasher...or the washer. Oh...and I keep one in the shower...for cleaning the tiles. Apparently they are called 'the world's greatest scrubbies'...and are available locally at Winks Gift Shop.
Where do you keep your ironing board? We have a closet in the laundry room...and the ironing board is attached to the door. Open the door...flip out the board...and go at it. We also had an electrical outlet put inside the closet...so the iron is always plugged in and handy. It works well for me!
I have a jewelry drawer in our walk-in closet...but chains get tangled in a drawer. I bought a pack of the teeny self-stick hooks and attached a row inside the closet. Easy to reach...and always tangle-free. It works for me.
Our powder room has a free-standing pedestal sink...and no cupboard of any kind. So where does one store extra toilet tissue? I found this canister...which was definitely not intended for a restroom...but does the job perfectly. It matches the decor...and holds three jumbo rolls...which are kept out of sight and within reach.
And in the en suite...
...here's another feature that works well for me. We had an electrical outlet put in the wall behind the en suite cabinets....for a good reason. My blow dryer is stored in the top drawer...and it stays plugged in. It always goes back in the drawer when the job is done. I don't know who gave me that idea...but it was a good one. It's probably not that easy to implement unless you are in the building or renovating process...but I thought I'd pass along the idea.
Have a great weekend...
