    Target

    Promising review: "This fits a combination of cleaning items, bottles, containers, srub brushes, rags, etc. It doesn't fit a full paper towel roll, but maybe if it did, the cleaning caddy would feel too big. I used it for taking items upstairs to clean, and it did the job well!" —Target Reviewer
