Caddy Organization: Tools for Success
In a well organized housekeeping caddy, everything has a place and a purpose.
- The caddy itself should have deep enough pockets to prevent the items from falling out
- The caddy should have two compartments to prevent cross contamination. Bathroom tools and chemicals should be on one side of the caddy.
- The toilet brush should be placed in a holder within the caddy to prevent contamination through contact with other items.
- Chemicals that could react when mixed should be positioned apart in the caddy for safety.
- Trigger spray nozzles should be faced inward to minimize the chance that a housekeeper could get accidentally sprayed with chemicals.
- Unused and dry pieces, such as steel wool, should be stored in a ZiplocTM bag. Steel wool will rust if it gets wet.
- The dish wand should be turned up for drying.
- The caddy must equip the housekeeper for the cleaning process and complement the flow of the process, as well.
- A complete caddy, as pictured, along with floor tools, should completely and properly clean a unit.
