The $18 Laundry Room Find I Wish I Discovered Years Ago
As a shopping writer, I’ve come across some pretty awesome products over the years. From a back-saving tub scrubber to a smart alarm clock that completely changed the way I sleep, these products have truly made a difference in the way I live my life. So, if anyone can attest to the fact that the perfect home item can truly be life-changing, it’s me. While visiting my 80-year-old aunt a couple of weeks back, I found her in the laundry room struggling to pick up one of those gallon-sized bottles of detergent (what can I say, the lady likes a good deal). Seeing her fuss around with the heavy bottle and frustrating pump nozzle, I immediately stepped in to help, much to her delight. I also began to wonder if there was something out there that could make getting to her laundry detergent a bit easier. One quick Google search later and I found the Skywin Laundry Detergent Holder Organizer.
Designed to store and help dispense oversized bottles of laundry detergent, these organizers are truly miracle workers. They consist of two pieces: a stand that sits at a downward angle to help get to every last drop of detergent and a security velcro strap outfitted with rubber grips to ensure your bottle doesn’t go anywhere. The best part? Set-up takes one minute. Simply run the velcro through each loop on the sides of the stand, slide your bottle between the velcro (there’s a lip that helps hold the bottle steady at the base), and secure the strap for a tight fit. Then, all that’s left to do is remove the cap, place it on the overflow plate at the front of the stand, and start dispensing. Easy-peasy!
The second I found these organizers, I overnighted a set to my aunt’s home as a surprise. When they arrived, I quietly put them together, placed her detergent and softener on the stands, and stored them in a handy metal cabinet she has right above the washing machine. As I took a step back, I said to myself, “Gosh, I wish I knew about these sooner.” Afterward, I called my aunt to the laundry room to show her and she was floored. She immediately opened the cabinet and let out a big, “Wow!” I watched as she played around with it and welcomed the big bear hug she gave me a thank you. A couple of days later she called me up to tell me once again how much she was loving the stands saying, “My back is so happy!” Needless to say, the stands were a win.
The Skywin Laundry Detergent Holder Organizer is normally $26, but right now you can get your hands on one for just $18. So if you’re tired of fumbling around with giant gallon-sized bottles of laundry detergent, give yourself (and your back) a break with one of these stands. You may just end up wondering how you ever lived without one, too.
