TIPS for an organised pantry
- Go shopping for tall, fitting to shelf height, clear containers, that way you can pack more into the space.
- Remove everything in your pantry, clean, check for expiry dates and start afresh!
- Put dry ingredients into your clear containers.
- Use labels or write directly onto the glass. We like Pretty Pantry Labels, or you will find a range of free printable labels here.
- Bonus is buying in bulk without the plastic packaging.
- Categorise and group other items such as: snacks, spices, sauces, cake icing bits and pieces...and place in labeled baskets.
- Go for eye level storage for the things you use most often.
- If it is suitable maybe pantry door storage racks, spice & condiment racks, or a flexi storage option.
- Shelf clip-on baskets maybe helpful to gain more storage space also.
- When every item has a place to go then there's little need for ongoing maintenance.

Ecological, effective and economical household cleaning
We think it’s important to use ecological products in the kitchen, you don’t want petrochemical residues on your cutlery, crockery or food preparation areas.
Caring and feeling responsible for water as the essence of all life, made Sonett come into life. By using 100% rapidly biodegradable raw materials such as purely plant-derived soaps, sugar surfactants and minerals such as sodium carbonate and silicates, we increase the washing performance of the water, and at the same time fostering its being returned to and reintegrated into the natural cycle.
We consider it our task to do the laundry and household cleaning in harmony with nature, and especially with the water, in a considerate and revitalising way.
