It’s best to have a designated space for your gardening tools and supplies, so they don’t get lost in the clutter of everything else you have in the garage. I have several shelves that are only used to store my gardening stuff.
I next started arranging the tools in an order that maximized use of the space. It took almost no time at all to screw the PVC holders into the plywood divider. And I popped those tools in there just to get a peek. Oh,yes!

A whisk broom or spotlight sensor (also known as an across track scanner) is a technology for obtaining satellite images with optical cameras. It is used for passive remote sensing from space. In a whisk broom sensor, a mirror scans across the satellite’s path (ground track), reflecting light into a single detector which collects data one pixel at a time. The moving parts make this type of sensor expensive and more prone to wearing out. Whisk broom scanners have the effect of stopping the scan, and focusing the detector on one part of the swath width. Because the detector is only focused on a subsection of the full swath at any time, it typically has a higher resolution than a push broom design for the same size of scan swath.
To assemble the long garage wall framing components we will start with the 2 x 4 sole plate and top plate by laying lengths of 2 x 4 material side by side on the ground or garage floor. We are going to be marking the location of each stud on them simultaneously with a small framing square that is 1-1/2 wide. It is the same width as a 2 x 4 stud for the purpose of easy markings with a pencil.
The Reliable Steamboy Pro 300CU 3-in-1 Steam and Scrub Mop can switch between a steam pad and a very stiff scrub brush, once you press with your foot to release one triangular section and press the mop onto the other. The switching mechanism works pretty well, but it’s a niche need, considering how small the terrycloth mop pad is and how often you’ll need to clean it for any sizable room cleaning. Small isn’t necessarily a dealbreaker for everyone, but the head is also more limited in flexibility than the one on the Bissell PowerFresh.
Featuring a simple but nice design, the Berry Ave broom holder is truly one of the best the market has to offer. This top-rated organizer boasts of 5 ultra strong spring-loaded ball that slots auto-adjust to any handle size. Its easy-release feature ensures effortless removal. It also has six retractable hooks for additional storage. The holder works both outdoors and indoors.
Battle rust-causing moisture with this surprising tool-kit addition: charcoal briquettes. These barbecue staples absorb dampness, common in garages and basements where tools are often stored. The briquettes tend to shed dust, however, so place them in a fabric bag before adding them to your box of tools.
Here’s a new job for a trash can: Use the sturdy containers to store messy things such as birdseed, sand, or salt. Place a cup inside for easy measuring. Print letters onto magnetic paper, cut out the letters, and use to label the cans.
This storage system solves two challenges: first, how to design storage space for the narrow alley between the garage side wall and the family car; and second, how to create a solid mounting surface to hold shelves and hooks that are capable of carrying hundreds of pounds of stuff.
A steam mop works by heating up the water inside the reservoir to temperatures of about 120 degrees Celsius (248 degrees Fahrenheit). Many steam mops have one jet of dry steam (but may have as many as 15 jets), moistening a microfibre pad placed underneath. The steam helps soak the pad and dirt is drawn off ground. Unlike regular mops, steam mops do not leave a residue on the floor and often clean through the dirt. The heat of the steam can kill about 99 percent of the bacteria and dust mites. Steam mops can disinfect floors, restore shine, kill dust mites, and remove some stains.
Mount a bucket on the wall to store your garden hose and attachments. Hang the bucket so the bottom is flush against the wall. You can store your garden hose by wrapping it around the bucket, then use the inside of the bucket as a shelf for storing your sprinklers, spray nozzles, or other attachments.
The Vax S6S Home Pro Compact boasts the longest cleaning session of all our favourite steam machines – a mammoth 40 minutes. The downside is that you have to wait 12 minutes for the tank to heat up, but we’re happy to stay patient for unrivalled steam time.
A broom holder is a simple tool that does not require you to hire a professional to install for you. It would be very expensive to do so. The best broom holders are the ones that are easy to install. It should easy to figure out how to mount them even without assistance. However, you should look for one that comes with installation manual as well as the necessary items such as screws and wall anchors.
Oh, and if you have multiple pairs of gloves, store them like you would your socks. Roll the pairs up together so they’re easy to find – and you’re not wasting time digging for a matching pair (I have lots of garden gloves too, haha!).
– for the garage ceiling under a habitable room: 5/8 Type X gypsum board or equivalent [Type-X gypsum board is defined as that which will pass a 1 hour fire-rating assembly test when attached to both sides of a stud, etc.That happens to be 5/8 thick fire-resistant gypsum board. The code garage separation requirement only requires the board to be applied to the ceiling which does not, by itself, create a fire-rated floor-ceiling assembly.]
Who doesn’t love a whisk broom. I grew up with these things and they are great for the car and easy to stash in the trunk. Gets the dog hair out of the carpet easily as well as the dirt. I bought one for the house, and the car.
I ordered two packs and both arrived with damaged corners and one panel had broken in two. Luckily, I think the damaged corners will be hidden with trim and the bits broken off are on the back side of the panel so am going to use them rather than try to return them. The problem is that the 8ft by 1ft panels are cumbersome to handle so the delivery person has a hard time unloading them and delivering them. I imagine they are handled badly throughout the process, being long and heavy as both packages arrived scuffed and scarred.

In Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz, the Wicked Witch of the West used a broomstick to fly over Oz. She also used it to skywrite Surrender Dorothy above the Emerald City. The Wizard commands Dorothy and her three traveling companions to bring the Wicked Witch’s broomstick to him in order to grant their wishes. Dorothy carries it to the Wizard with the Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion after the Wicked Witch’s death.

Actually, the Uniform Building Code as far back as 1970 (when I used it to study for the registration exam), did not require a 1-hr fire rated wall or ceiling between a single-family house and an attached garage. In fact, the requirements were virtually the same as today’s International Residential Code.
Steam mops are a good idea when executed well, but check for desired temperature at the tool surface (usually, the higher the better), and change or clean applicator pads regularly. Dirt must go somewhere, and if your steam pad becomes saturated, it then begins to release and spread soil.
I also own a HAAN and love it – easy to use, doesn’t leave a lot of water on the floor, the pads can be machine washed and can be changed hands free (they velcro on to the mop head). Mine broke after weekly, three year use (the water no longer gets hot) and no one seems able to repair it so I’m looking for a new one. We do have sealed hardwood floors and I have not noticed any negative effects of using the steam cleaner on them. HAAN’s website does say that it is safe to use on sealed hardwood. I may just buy another HAAN even though they are more expensive (and sold out on HAAN’s site). Would love to see Sweethome’s review of a HAAN!
At a high enough temperature, steam vapor can kill bacteria, dust mites and mold spores. While kitchen and bathroom floors may not be one of the top germ hot spots in your home (according to the National Sanitation Foundation’s 2011 germ study, your dish sponge and toothbrush holder are likelier culprits), floors can still harbor bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli in lesser quantities, by contact with shoes or spills.
You really don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a garage organization system. You can make one yourself and save money, plus you get to make it exactly how you need it. Just adding a few shelves will help immensely with storage issues and when you utilize wall space, you have much more floor room for larger items.
