What You Need to Know About Storing Toiletries

Storing toiletries can be a tough task, especially when you have limited space. It’s important to know what types of toiletries you have and how to store them properly to keep them safe and easily accessible. As a customer of Pouch Self Storage, you want to ensure that your toiletries are in good condition and accessible whenever you need them. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the best ways to store your toiletries for maximum space utilization and easy access.

Create a Toiletries Inventory List

The first step in storing toiletries is to create a list of all the items you have. This will help you get rid of anything that is expired or unused and make storage more manageable. By creating an inventory list, you can also determine which type of storage units you will need. If you have a lot of bulky items, you’ll likely need a larger unit. If you only have a few small items, a smaller unit may suffice.

Use Suction Cups and Shelf Dividers

Suction cups and shelf dividers are excellent organizers for bathroom toiletries. Suction cups are easy to install, don’t require drilling holes, and are great for holding small toiletries like toothbrushes, razors, and makeup brushes. On the other hand, shelf dividers are perfect for storing larger items like shampoos and conditioners. They help you keep your bathroom necessities within reach and upright, thereby reducing the chances of spilling.

Store Toiletries in Clear Containers

The advantage of clear containers is that they help you see what’s inside, look nice, and fit well with any decor style. You can use glass, acrylic, or plastic clear containers, but be sure that they’re airtight or have a secure lid that will prevent moisture from damaging your toiletries. Clear containers also make it easier to spot expiry dates and replace your products accordingly.

Label Everything

When you have multiple storage containers, labeling them is essential for easy access. You don’t want to waste time looking through every container to find what you need. Put labels on your storage bins, shelves, and baskets with specific items. For example, you could label a container ‘Hair Products’ with hair spray, gel, and serum, or ‘First Aid’ for band-aids and medicine.

Use the Back of the Door

If you’re short on space in your bathroom, using the back of the door can be a lifesaver. You can install an over-the-door storage rack for towels, washcloths, and robes. Door-mounted organizers are also great for keeping your toiletries within reach when you’re showering, shaving, or applying makeup. You can also install hooks or a rod to hang bathrobes or towels.
