6 Simple Tips on Saving Money while Cleaning Your Home
There are a variety of ways to help clean your home that don’t include having to spend a lot of money. Here we give you 6 tips to make your home sparkle and to keep your hard-earned money saved for a rainy day.
Clean Your Home Frequently
By maintaining a clean home daily, means that you won’t have to worry about deep cleaning your house with tougher cleansers which will save you money down the road. Regular vacuuming, mopping, and dusting of furniture goes a long way in having a clean home so that you won’t have to play catch-up with your cleaning later.
Buy No-Name Cleaning Products
Many no-name cleaning products work just as effectively as brand-name products but cost a lot less. Overall, the main cleaning components are the same in the cheaper brand, so your house will still have the same clean result.
Buy Cleaning Products on Sale or at a Cheaper Store
If you feel as though you prefer some brand-name products over the cheaper variety, you can still find a lot of these products on sale or save with the use of coupons. Knowing where to shop for these preferred products can also cut your costs, as some stores charge more compared to others. Try visiting a dollar store to get some great deals on brand-name products that you love.
Buy Cheaper House-Hold Appliances
When choosing a product to aid in cleaning your home, the more expensive ones are not always the ones that allow for the best clean of your home. Research online if you are unsure, and see the ratings of some less expensive options.
For example, a budget vacuum cleaner can often clean as well as a more expensive model. For under $200, you can purchase a vacuum cleaner that will serve you well for all of your cleaning needs. To save money, you can also choose to purchase a vacuum cleaner that works on carpets alone and sweep any hard floor surfaces in your home.
When wanting to wash your floor, buying products where you are having to constantly purchase replacements of disposable wet pads can add up quickly. Instead, buy a cheaper, reusable, and washable soft fabric mop head to wash your floor.
Choose Multi-Purpose Cleaners
If you feel like you have to purchase a specific cleaner for a unique task, keep in mind that each individual cleaner adds up to a lot of clutter and a lot of extra cost. Although you may not be able to clean your mirror with the same product you use to clean your toilet, there are a lot of multipurpose cleaners out there that are great at doing just that, cleaning multiple areas of your home. They will also save you wasted money on specialized products that are often increased in price.
Make Your Own Cleaning Products
By making your own cleaning products, not only are you saving yourself some money, but you are also creating a product that is better for the environment, and in turn, better for you.
The internet is full of websites that will provide you with a list of ingredients of what you need, and also include how-to directions to aid you in making your own cleaning products. These can include all purpose cleaners, floor cleaners, glass and mirror sprays, deodorizers and even stain cleaners.
The ingredients needed to make these products are relatively cheap and can also be bought in bulk from a variety of stores.
Don’t feel as though to keep your home looking its best requires that you spend a lot of money. Save your money and try some of these tips to keep your home clean and keep your money in your wallet.
