When you don’t have all your cleaners in one place, you wind up spending more time running around the house than you do actually scrubbing it. Save yourself time and headaches with an all-in-one housekeeping helmet that keeps supplies at your fingertips. When one bottle is empty, seamlessly transition to the bottle on the other side and keep on going!

What You Need



  • Drill with drill bits
  • Empty spray bottle

1. Position the cup holders next to the helmet where you’d like them to go and mark the spots with a pen. Drill holes through each of the cup holders and corresponding ones into the helmet itself. Insert the brass fasteners through both holes to secure the holder to the helmet. If that doesn’t work, MacGyver it with a little bit with chewing gum.

2. Cut three sections of tubing and secure Tube Ends A, B & C together using the t-shaped coupler. You might have to grease the tube ends a little bit. I found that butter works really well.

3. Drill a hole into the back of a spray bottle and insert Tube End D into Spray Hole A. Do the same thing with Tube End E and Cleaner Hole B. Loop End D around and tuck it under your collar.

4. Place bottles on both sides of the helmet and start cleaning!

Important Note: Be sure to have the same amount of cleaner in each bottle getting started. Otherwise, your the helmet will tilt to one side precariously, and potentially cause injury to your neck. Use at your own risk.
