Spring Cleaning Home Hacks: Get Organized for Spring with Hook and Loop Tape
You’re the hook to my loop – that is, I hope we stick together.
While this is a cheesy pickup line, we meant that more as an idea for your home and its items. You can use hook and loop tape to turn your home into an organized paradise.
Want some inspiration for home organization? Check out our hacks below.
Velcro Makeup Boards
Do you always find yourself digging around in your makeup bag or rummaging through your vanity in the morning? Does it keep you from getting out of the house on time?
It won’t anymore, with this hack. Take a large poster board or bulletin board and mount it to the wall.
Then get a roll of hook and loop tape in small circles or in a roll that you can then cut into small shapes. Place the soft side of the tape on the back of your makeup items.
Bigger items like eyeshadow palettes will need more than one piece of velcro to stick.
Once the velcro is stuck to the back of your makeup, stick the hook side of the velcro to the loop part.
Place the makeup on the board or cork board and press down – not hard enough to break your makeup – but hard enough to stick the item down.
Try to take the makeup item off the board and press the hook parts back on the board if needed.
If you’re having trouble getting it to stick, try using hot glue on the back of the dots. We don’t recommend hot gluing the dots to your makeup, in case you damage the plastic or the makeup inside.
Stop Losing the Remote!
Are you always losing the remote? Always finding it in some weird place or stuffed in between the cushions? You can fix that with hook and loop tape.
Similar to the makeup organization hack, place some velcro on the back of your remotes, NOT on the battery door (it’ll pull it off).
Then, place the other side of the hook and loop tape where you want the remotes to live full time. Now that there’s a determined spot for the remotes, hopefully, people will put them back where they go!
Organize Your Spice Cabinet
What can’t you organize with hook and loop tape? There’s not a lot.
Our third hack helps organize your spices. Take the hook and loop tape and put it on the back of a spice jar. Stick the opposite part to the inside of your cabinet door and make sure it’s a good fit.
You may want to place tape at both the top and the bottom of the jar, for a more secure fit. As long as you’re not in the habit of slamming cabinet doors, the spices should stay secure.
As an extra hack, if you have some soft loop tape left over, you can use them as a pad for closing your cabinets quietly.
Did you like these home hacks? Since most hook and loop tape is removable, you can try these tips out and then undo it if you don’t like them.
