VIDEO How to Assemble

Assembly Directions

Place all liquid items in the bucket first. Place remaining items in the bucket, fitting them around and between the liquid items. Sponges, scouring pads, clothespins, and trash bags can be separated in order to fit all of the items in the bucket. Ensure the lid is closed securely.

Important Notes

All items must be new except for the actual bucket and lid.
All cleaning agents must be liquid and in plastic containers. No powders, please.
If you cannot find the requested size of a liquid item, use a smaller size. Including larger sizes of any item will prevent the lid from sealing.
If all of the items on the list are not included, please put a label on the bucket indicating what has been omitted.
