Use a tension rod to secure pot lids along the side of a drawer or cabinet.
With its jumble of makeup, medicines, towels, and more, your bathroom hardly inspires a relaxing get-ready routine. To streamline supplies, start with a deep clean: Shed expired and unused items as well as bulky packaging (instead, store products in easy-in-and-out jars, bags, and baskets). Leave everyday essentials — hand soap, toothbrushes — on the counter. Outfit cabinets with handy holders: a back-of-the-door rack for hair tools and a lazy Susan to bring bottles to the front.

I had the facet run while I emptied out the bag of water and ammonia just to be safe! Tracy (the middle child)
