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