Label a few jars of clear containers in which to put tiny things you find in the pockets of your clothes. You can also use this system for labeling your cleaning supplies so you can easily grab the one you need. Consider storing the big containers like the detergent in a cabinet and putting a small amount in a jar so it’s easier to operate.
