Declutter Under Bathroom Sink Cabinets {15 Minute Mission}

Today's mission is to declutter under your bathroom sink cabinet, or just under your sink even if there is no cabinet under there.


Bathroom Organization Challenge
This mission is designed to be done during the Bathroom Organization Challenge, which is part of the 52 Week Organized Home Challenge here on the site.

Just like with under the kitchen sink, under the bathroom sink can become quite a jumble of stuff, such as extra toilet paper, toiletry products, cleaning supplies, and more.

Now is the time to take out the clutter, see what you really have and then organize what's left behind.

Prime items for decluttering include empty or mostly empty bottles, stuff you know you'll never use, and items that shouldn't be stored in that location.

How to declutter under your bathroom sink cabinet, including tips for how to dispose of common items you may find there, and lots of before and after photos from readers who've done this #Declutter365 mission {on Home Storage Solutions 101}use this Pin it button to save to Pinterest
Here are tips for decluttering and disposing of some common things you may find under your bathroom sink:

* How to dispose of cleaning products

* When to dispose of makeup, cosmetics and toiletries

* How to dispose of medications

While I've listed several common types of items above that are often found in the cabinet under your bathroom sink that doesn't mean those things should be stored there.

First, as always, be aware of safety when storing items such as cleaning products, medications, or anything potentially dangerous where kids or pets could get into them.

But in addition, remember that your under the sink can be a moist place, especially if there is a leak of the plumbing. Therefore, never store items under there that would be damaged if they get wet.

When putting the non-clutter items back into place remember that under the bathroom sink has a lot of plumbing and from time to time you may need access to it, quickly, such as if there's a leak, or a clog.

Therefore, I suggest when doing your organizing that you containerize the area as much as possible, so if stuff needs to be removed quickly you're just grabbing a few larger items that hold much of your stuff, instead of keeping everything in there loose.

Below I've added some photos from readers who've already done this mission to get you inspired to tackle under your own sink today!

In addition, to the left above is a before and after photo from a reader, Tina, who did this mission in her guest bathroom. She both got rid of clutter, and also added labeled containers for what was left.

These images above are from a reader, Liza, who has quite a few bathrooms in her house.

She's done a great job with the decluttering task of under her sink, as shown in the first picture, but also with decluttering the bathroom counters and sink area which was yesterday's mission.

If you've got multiple bathrooms in your home you'll just need to spend time on each one to complete this mission, but you can do it!

After decluttering 2 under the sink cabinets I realized that I prefer cleaning products in both bathrooms. It is handy for 5 minute clean-ups.
