2nd shower rod against the back wall with wire baskets on curtain hooks to organize bath toys. When company comes over, just adjust the rod to the top of the shower to get it out of the way.

Organization Idea – Bobby Pin Storage. What a brilliant idea.

    this is a great idea, I use one of those small altoid tins to hold my bobby pins but this would work great too.

Mattress Spring Cleaning: Pour about 1 cup of baking soda into a mason jar and drop in 4 drops of lavender essential oil. Put on the lid and shake.Using a kitchen strainer sprinkle the baking soda mixture all over the mattress and let it sit. I leave it for an hour or more, usually the time it takes for me to finish washing all the bedding and press the bed skirt. Using the hose end of your vacuum and an upholstery attachment, thoroughly vacuum the mattress.

Genius!!! Each member of the family has a mesh lingerie laundry bag, and a hook. They put their dirty socks in the bag each night. Then when it's full, you wash the whole mesh zipped up bag, and give it back! No more sorting through and figuring out which socks are for which person!

Every January turn all of the hangers in your closet backwards, like this. It takes about 60 seconds: Each time you wear an item, hang it back up in the normal fashion, which takes zero effort to remember or do. In June, any item that is still hanging backwards has not been worn in 6 months, donate it to Goodwill unless you can come up with a good reason to save it.

Cornmeal absorbs grease on light colored fabric or upholstery. Pour enough on to cover the soiled area and let sit for 15 to 30 minutes. Vacuum to remove the grains.
