Over the weekend, I embarked on a small project that is giving me great happiness. I got my brooms off the floor of the closet.
As you probably already know, I am a huge fan of Command™ products. I’ve written numerous blog posts about them (see, for example, Commanding the Bathroom and Hooks at Your Command.) I’ve used Command hooks in my own home to hang keys, handbags, clothes, masks, necklaces, potholders, pans, and utensils. I’ve also implemented Command products for many of my clients to help solve their organizing challenges.
For the past month, I’ve been looking for opportunities to improve my own space. (See my recent blog post Changing It Up if you want to be reminded why.) After I consolidated some brooms and related cleaning products into a closet corner, I wondered if there were a way to make that spot neater. Then I remembered the Command™ Broom & Mop Gripper, which I’ve put up for several clients.
I bought a few of them and got to work in my closet. I now have a broom, and a Swiffer, and a dustpan off the floor and hanging on the wall. It makes me very happy to see them there, and I find myself peeking into that closet a few times each day.
One disappointment was that, despite a photo on the package showing that it was possible, I was unable to get the Swiffer WetJet™ to stay on the wall. It was fine without the liquid cartridge attached, but once I added a full cartridge, it came down overnight. Luckily, Command products come off the wall without doing any damage. So I put the product back up and used it for the dustpan instead.
I urge you to check out the full Command line of products for organizing help in every room.
