Joseph Joseph sink organiser
We love Joseph Joseph’s range of practical yet sleek household items, and this compact sink organiser is an ideal choice for busy kitchens. While some caddies are designed to be portable, this one will look neat as a permanent feature on your worktop.
In the main compartments, you can store useful cleaning supplies like washing-up liquid and brushes. And there’s a dedicated rail at the front for smaller items like sponges and scouring pads.
A few clever features make this one of our favourite cleaning caddies. It’s got a hidden sloped base to drain away excess water, and you can easily take apart the separate pieces for a quick clean.
