We all have one, that awful space under the sink filled with garbage disposals, hoses and cords. No matter what you do with it, it'll never look pretty. But it can be functional. And that's what today's article is all about. Function.
The Storage Solution:
While searching for roll out baskets like the one I had, I found some large drawer divider trays. At only a few dollars each I figured they’d do until I found what I was looking for. I was pleasantly surprised to find that with the vinyl wallpaper they slid easily in and out and were even strong enough if I wanted to remove the whole tray with it’s supplies so I’ve never replaced them.
I like utilizing the backs of doors when possible, but didn’t want anything that had to be screwed into the door so I went on the hunt. It took awhile but I eventually found a handy basket that fit the bill. The bracket attaches to the back of the door using 3M removable Velcro like strips allowing the basket to lifted off if needed. I use it for storing latex gloves, sponges and a couple brushes, but it could easily be used to carry a few supplies with you when cleaning around the house.
Oh and what, you ask, is that little circle with the three dots you see on the front of the garbage disposal? That’s a magnetic LED puck light. Though it can be attached to the side of the cabinet with the sticky tape that’s included, I figured by using the magnet and attaching it to the disposal I could easily move the light to where I needed it by sliding it around it’s base. With one of these little guys you’ll never need to strain your eyes in the dark to see what’s under the sink again.
