From Dish Rag Holder to Spray Bottle Caddy

Spray Bottle Caddy

Materials: IKEA wooden dish rag holder, 5/8” spade bit, spray bottles

This is a simple hack that uses those $0.99 light wooden dish rag holders found in bins at our favorite materials store, Ikea (I can not, FOR THE LIFE OF ME, find the official Ikea name of these things, but we’ve all seen them at the big blue and yellow).

After reorganizing under the sink, I no longer needed a dish rag holder, but I did need to use the vertical space in the cabinet to store other goods.

I realized, conveniently, that the holes in the dish rag holder were the perfect size for spray bottle triggers to hang from. I got out my 5/8” spade bit, drilled a hole between each of the existing ones (there were 3 originally), for a total of 5, and hung it up under the sink.

Voila! Spray bottle holder! All the bottles are up and out of the way, and organized for easy finding. Can’t beat that for $0.99!

    If you mount it with a hinge on the side closer to you, and a block for it to rest on, on the far side, you can even make it swing out so you can see better :D

    i like the idea but i wanted to let you know that you have your dishwasher drain line plumbed incorrectly. you have the drain line after the trap so what is happening is the waste gases are coming into your dishwasher. so does yoru dishwasher smell?

    you should replumb it so it is before the trap. easy.

      It is before the trap, if you look closely it’s just wrapping around the waste pipe near the wall. It enters the top tailpiece under the basket.

    i like the idea! would be great to mount on the inside of the cabinet door so you can see all of the bottles when you open the cabinet too.
