I tackled some cupboards last week, these were the easiest spots to begin my whole-home mission.
First up was this cupboard that is in the large back hallway outside of our main bath. It functions as a catch-all for bathroom supplies, but it also stores cleaning supplies that I use up on the second floor.
I am a big fan of cleaning and laundry products from The Laundress New York (that's their Surface Cleaner, above, which I like to have around in bulk). When we sold our house last summer I scrubbed the entire house with Laundress products, and then used the home spray to give the whole house their classic scent of the most delicious air-dried laundry.
One of our agents told me that almost all of the potential buyers commented on the cleanliness and the wonderful smell. So, I guess I credit The Laundress with helping me to sell my house!
Next to the first-aid basket you can see a small supply of the symbol of our times: the disposable face mask. I've been sewing some and I think I've finally found the perfect pattern, but I do like to keep some disposable ones around for quick grabs. Masks have been mandatory in our county for nearly a month now, it's just going to be a way of life for some time.
I'm planning to post the pattern and method I've been using to sew them up. Another post down the line: the basement cleaning and organizing that has been keeping me busy and pleasantly preoccupied. It's the ultimate utility area, and holds challenges like mold remediation and vermin control (!).
I hope you are well and staying safe out there.
