Eight (8) Items NOT to keep under the kitchen sink!

What NOT to put under the Kitchen Sink

What are the items NOT to put under your kitchen sink?  We've been taught or simply developed habits of storing certain items under the kitchen sink.

With plumbing, humidity and a variable heating and cooling environment - you might be surprised exactly what doesn't work well there that you've just tossed under the kitchen sink out of habit.  Our mother's may have put some things there that really do better elsewhere.  They learned some things from their mothers and so forth.  But are there some things that don't really belong under the kitchen sink? 

Yes.  What they are may surprise you:

  • Fire Extinguishers
  • Potatoes
  • Flip-top Containers
  • Boxed Items
  • Steel Wool/ Brillo Pads
  • Onions
  • The Trash Can
  • Rags

Listen to this episode of the Surviving on Shoestrigns Show to hear just why these don’t bode well in the cabinet under your kitchen sink. You may be losing money, wasting food or simply making it inconvenient for yourself just because it's 'what you've always done.'  Maybe it’s time to rethink what's under the kitchen sink!

I'd love for you to leave a comment too...are there some things I missed that you think don't belong under the kitchen sink but many folks still keep them there?
