A cleaning Caddy or Maid basket is the best way to organize your supplies, says Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il. 60201. These inexpensive plastic tool-carrying trays or open toolboxes are often used by gardeners and repair people. They keep everything you need for a particular job right at your fingertips and they're quick to grab in an emergency. They enable you to work fast, move-in quick and get out.
Take your caddy into the target area with you and work right from it. Using a caddy helps you clean without backtracking and constant trips back and forth. Just be sure to always move it with you so you don't end up running back to it for supplies. Always return each bottle or piece of equipment to the caddy the minute you're done with it. When you set things down outside the caddy, on a counter, table, or the floor, you have wasted motion retrieving it, trouble finding it again, and possible damage to the surface you set it on.
Keep a caddy in all the areas you clean frequently, says Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il. 60201. Make sure your individual caddy is filled with what you need to clean that particular area.
