5 ways of saving on cleaning products!by Ashleigh James, Sep 2016
1 – Avoid spending on Big Brands! More likely than not lesser-known brands are exactly the same product, just without the name and for half the price! Over a year you can save yourself a lot of money by changing what you put in your basket.
2 – Buy reusable cleaning cloths! Buying a new kitchen roll on every shop can soon tot up the pennies! Re-usable cloths such as microfibre cloths work wonders and can be put in the wash after use. They come out fresh and as good as new!
3 – Use vinegar as a substitute for glass cleaner! – We all have vinegar in the cupboards and it’s much cheaper to buy than a branded window cleaning spray! Mix 50% white vinegar in a spray bottle with 50% tap water, spray on your widows and wipe down with scrupled newspaper
4 – Unblock your sink with baking soda! There is no need to buy an expensive toxic drain cleaner when baking soda can do the trick! Try pouring half a cup of baking soda down the blocked drain, and then follow it with a half cup of vinegar. Cover the drain with a cloth and leave for about 10 minutes!
5 – Declutter the house! Controlling clutter is a major part of keeping a house clean. Removing unwanted and unnecessary items from your home means you have less to clean; and therefore less cleaning products to buy! You can even make extra cash through de-cluttering by selling anything you no longer need at your local car boot sale!
